When I'm at Cate, my favorite things to do are ceramics and theater. I'm in my second full year of Ceramics, and I spend a lot of time during the weekends out in the Ceramics Barn with my friends and we have "ceramics parties" (which is basically putting on the radio and making bowls, mugs, teapots, etc). This fall I'm participating in our theater production, which I'm really excited about. In the spring I play my favorite sport, volleyball, which was a sport I hadn't played until I came to Cate. My favorite classes are Chinese and Math. And even though I don't usually like history, my teacher Mr. Newsome made my sophomore history class one of my favorite classes. Over the summers I work in a local restaurant and travel if I get the chance. One of my favorite places to visit during the summer is Palm Springs because the weather is fantastic. I'm really happy to be a tour guide because in my last two years at Cate, I have come to love this school and just about everything about it. The students are outgoing and thoughtful, and everybody says "hey" when I pass them on my way to dinner/classes/everything. It's home to me, and I'm happy to have the chance to show other people how Cate is such an amazing place.
