Elementary School Student

When did you come to YIS?

I came to YIS in the middle of second grade in 2018. I came from Sakhalin Island. I lived there for eight years. I loved the snow we had there. We had snow as high as the front door of our house.

What subject do you like, and why do you like it?

I like Physical Education because we get to run around but we learn a lot as well. We learn different ways of skipping, relay races, and how to work as a team.

What do you usually play at recess with your friends?

We usually pay sharks and minnows. We try to cross the school yard without getting caught by the sharks.

What activities are you involved in outside school?

I am in a basketball club, play with Lego a lot and usually play video games.

What subject would you like to teach?

I would like to teach math because I am good at math. I like it because we have to use it everyday. I give my brother help sometimes.

What famous person, past or present, would you most like to meet in person, and why?

I'd really lke to meet Michael Jordan because he is one of my heroes. I would want him to coach me and I would like to talk to him about how it felt like to be a star.

What were some things you learned about yourself during Continuous Learning when the campus was temporarily closed?

I learned that I had to wait sometimes for questions to be answered by my teacher instead of being able to talk to her immediately like when we were in class. I did like being able to go outside to play when I finished my work at home.
