Yesterday, Sacred Hearts' 8th graders shadowed a freshman, who we were assigned to, at Seabury Hall. The freshman I shadowed was a girl named Jordan. We went to the school assembly first and it lasted about 15 minutes. The school showcased a couple of students' talents on the piano and violin, students also made announcements about the events in the following week. After the assembly, Jordan and I went to Algebra 1. Most of the algebra they were doing was the algebra we were doing in 8th grade, and I found that very interesting. I helped Jordan with a couple questions and learned the math lesson with the class. After Algebra 1, we headed to history and the teacher introduced himself as Mr. Sato and explained the curriculum in his class. I sat back and listened to the class rumble about the newest issue in Mexican history. Nicole was also sitting next to me and I enjoyed having her for company. Jordan and I walked down to the meeting place for a couple of snacks and after that we went to Spanish. I knew a little Spanish because my dad talks to me in Portuguese sometimes, and Spanish and Portuguese are somewhat similar. The teacher just talked to me in Spanish and, for the most part, I had no clue what he said. He handed me a quiz and I took it with the rest of the class and ended up getting a 90%! That was definitely a surprise for me. When we were done with Spanish, I parted with Jordan, heading to go meet the principal, thanking her for being my guide throughout the day. He gave us a brief introduction to Seabury and talked about all of their programs. Then, he led us to the lunch room and then we ate lunch. It was amazing and so gourmet! I had teriyaki chicken, mashed potatoes, rice, and lemonade. We had to go home after lunch, so we thanked the chefs for lunch. We said our goodbyes and thank you's to our guides and the principal. Overall, it was a truly exciting introduction to high school and to Seabury Hall.
