Hi my name is Serra Kimsey, and this is my Educational Digital Portfolio.
I chose Animas High School because I felt like I could get a better education at Animas rather than at Durango High School or a different school. I like how the school is a hands on learning school rather than just the teacher handing you a piece of paper and expecting you to turn it in without them explaining. Another reason I chose Animas was because of the teacher-student relationship. I wanted to go to a school where the teachers treat you like an actual human being rather than just a student. I like how the school is smaller, so it gives you a chance to get to really know your teachers and your peers as well. At my previous High School, my teachers didn’t really have time to get to know a student on their own time or during class because there were about 29 kids in each class. It’s also easier to get help because the classes are smaller here at AHS. I also chose Animas because of the people and the culture of the school. The school’s culture is just marvelous. Like how they divide the classes, how the learning style is, how the teachers are with their students, etc. Most of the people at Animas are very kind. People will just say "hi" to you in the hallways or smile. I think at a different school, most people wouldn't try to reach out and be your friend. Animas doesn't really have "Cliques". We all have our group of friends we hang out with, but some people bounce around. All in all, Animas is just a great school. I couldn't imagine any other school I'd rather be at.
