*Introduction*

Hello, You may not know me, so I am going to tell you about myself. My name is Savanna Roark and I am a sophomore at Calumet New Tech Highschool. You probably already know that much, but it is a start. I grew up in a family of four with a mom, dad, sister, and brother. One thing I am proud about is the fact that I have no step-siblings, or half. Including the fact that my parents are still married. My family is like the old fashioned families from back in the day. Today, a lot of familes have different dads, moms, and siblings. For the past two years, I have worked at McDonalds. It is a good job, but very fustrating. You have to work really fast and be nice to ignorant, rude people. I receive good pay for the fact I do not have bills; excluding my phone bill. I try to support myself with the money I earn. I like the feeling of being independant. When my parents need to borrow money, I give it to them. They do not like asking, but I do not mind giving it to them. I mean, they have done a lot for me and it is the least I could do. My Aunt Kathy is the one person that raised me. I do have parents, but she actually raised me. When I was younger, I was stuck like glue to her. Throughout the week and weekends, I was always at her house. She packed my lunches and bought me clothes, taking good care of me. I did spend time at my house, but it never felt like home. My aunt made me who I am today, and I thank her for everything she has done for me. Like you will see on my website, my father is my inspiration and hero. He does, at times, get on my nerves, but what father doesn't? When I talk to him, he gives me good advice. My dad did not finish highschool, but he is really smart. I look up to him everyday and I want to make him proud. Now that you have learned a little about me, let's go on to the reason for this letter. The portfolio yoru about to examine is all of my work over the past year. Creating this portfolio was intended to show how I have improved and how I have mastered the Indiana Standards. Throughout the year, I have improved in my writing. Because of the success classes and Study Island, I have improved on constructing my sentences and how to identify certain parts of my sentences. In the beginging of the year, my sentences lacked variety. I need to improve on my vocabulary and how I think. For instance, when our class has to write essays, I have no clue what to write about or where to start. I think if I read more than what I do, I will see improvement. Recently, I was told that I read at an eighth grade level. I disagree with the data, but then I do not because of my vocabulary. I know I need to start reading and I am not going to make excuses for why I am not. I believe I have more potential, but I do not show it. I can do better in my work, I just do not try hard enough and give it my all. In my mind, I feel like I give it my all, but when I really think about it, I am more capable than what I set out to acheive. Over the year, technology has been used excessively. I now know about websites and tools that I did not know existed. These websites and tools can help me in my future projects. My favorite tool and website is Wix. Wix is a website where you can make any type of webpage. I can use this for anything. My best work in my portfolio is the Baby No Baby Project. I hope you like it because I worked really hard by going above and beyond. If you do not mind, I would like to know your opinions on this artifact. Also, please include your veiwpoint about the others and how I can improve. Please do not be afraid of negative feed back. I think it is good because that kind of feed back will help me grow as a learner. Thank you for donating your time to inspect my portfolio.

Conclusion

  Dear Reader,   Once again, thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to view my portfolio. As you saw, I have fair material. Next year, for this project, I plan to be more organized. At the beginning of the week, I thought the project only consisted of the web outline, introduction, and this conclusion. I had only two days to complete my wix web page. I did not have anything else finished, so I knew I had to get myself in gear. I stayed after school for three hours to finish my wix because it was the most easiest for me to complete in a short amount of time. After I finished my web page, I tried to finish my mind map, but I still needed to retrieve my artifacts before I could actually finish. Over the weekend, I wrote my introduction in a good amount of time and completed almost everything. However, it was hard to do so due to my work schedule. Now that everything in done, I feel incomplete. I did like this project because there was a lot to do and I was always busy. I hope next year is just as fun because I will know what to expect. I will keep more track of my grades and assignments than I did this year. I plan to accomplish much more next school year. I really want to increase my vocabulary and my reading level. But the only way for me to do so is to read. I really want to thank you for taking your time to read my portfolio. I thank you because you did not have to do this. I hope you liked my project and I hope you gave both negative and positive feedback.   Thank you, Savanna Roark
