Those are by far the best books! I have the rock book and I have a rock collection!

You can do anything you want to.

Very good presentation your 3rd grade teacher should be shot.

You definitely had a good presentation. I read nonfiction when I was little, too. Congratulations on getting into Hawaii, good luck with the PHD. Your message was great, and well delivered. I do believe you can do anything you want to do.

great way to start i love that and your presentation was very comical and smooth, you made great eye contact. you're not a nerd its good to read! haha i love the marine biologist piece because it reminds me of seinfeld and the fact that you always do your best. 3rd grade teachers are always nut cases i hated my math teacher. don't let people get you down! thats a great lesson. youre going to hawaii! thats amazing you will have so much fun there with your dreams ahead of you, i think you can achieve them if you set your mind to it!

Nice presentation. No pauses and you kept good eye contact!
The changing of the slides flowed nicely.
Quiet at times but volume was loud.
I like the slide show. The list is very effective. Great job coming back to the original quote. Your presentation had great flow. Have fun with the sharks :)

You CAN do anything you want to do! That is a good statement to live by because then hopefully you will live life without regrets. I think every kid at one point said they wanted to be marine biologist! But that is a good aspiration still, especially since you have kept up with it! Congratulations on getting into the school you wanted, and good luck for your long road to your career!

Your lecture had an excellent flow, everything was connected and moved nicely together. The power point did not dominate your presentation, but it was very good for emphasizing your points. My only qualm with your presentation was you were a bit hard to hear. Otherwise it was fantastic and very interesting.

It was cool to see how your parents advice affected you specifically, even when you were young, and how it carried out through your life.
You also told us about the antagonists in your life and the goals you set as you grew, which I thought was awesome.
I liked how the whole presentation wrapped up in the beginning and end with the one phrase, "You can do anything you want to."

Your childhood sounds like a lot of fun. Its so cool that you are going into marine iology, thats what I am going into too! I wold suggest that you speak up because you seem like a very soft spoken person.

AdrienneB2009 said...

You can do anything you want to!
Supported by parents, lead by sisters...book nerd! Self discovery!
Marine Biology is so fascinating!
Hawaii!!! I'm so jealous!
Way to go! You will go far and probably keep suprising yourself!

That is really cool that you taught yourself to read, that's something very unique.
It is also really awesome that you stuck with your childhood dream job, I don't know hardly anyone that stuck to it like that.
I have always wanted to go to Hawaii! Your lucky you get to go to school there, have fun and good luck!
The presentation may have been a bit short other than that I feel the presentation was awesome.

I loved the part about you b eing a book nerd! Thats always how i have been too, except maybe not the same books. It's amazing that you still want to do what you wanted to do when you were little. You have some huge dreams, which sound really cool. I hope that you achieve the things that you want to, and I loved hearing about your hopes. You were a little quiet at some points, but great job otherwise!

Kim C. 2010 said...

I never knew you were such a book nerd!! THATS AWESOME!! Those are great plans!! Awesome job tying in the idea of What's the point!!! I loved it, and the only thing I might suggest is more flowing ideas! But overall AMAZAZING!!

MackenzieL2009 said...

I love all your memories and the pictures you used to tell your stories! The eyewitness books, brick wall, your to do list: it kept your audience listening. The only thing I would change would be to talk just a little bit louder. You definately can do anything you want to, you did a great job, good luck in your future!!

I thought it was really awesome that you read non-fictional books instead of fictional. It leads you to what you wanted to do and that’s great. I really felt your pain about your 3rd grade teacher just from the way you talked about her, so it’s good that you had passion during your speech. I’m sure Mrs. Smith loved that you tied it back to what’s the point, nice job.

I think your power point with your presentation worked very well because the visuals would pop up at the exact moment you were discussing it. This made it really easy to follow what you were saying and gave a great visual. You had great contact with the audience and your presentation flowed extremely well. I also liked how you kept your main theme throughout the presentation which really tied everything together.

SaraB2009 said...

I thought your presentation was great! I couldnt stop paying attention to write on your blog! you tied everything together greatly! I think it is so cool that you knew what you wanted to do since you were young.Good Job
