Two, my first grade teacher, which I have not seen in ten or so years, remembers my passion for science, even as a five year old child. Reflecting upon this, it really should not be a surprise. I was the kid that knew all the planets in order. I was the kid that could identify trees by their leaves. I was the kid that received a microscope for my eight birthday.

My dad worked for IBM as a computer engineer, and my mom stayed home to take care of my brother and me. I started elementary school at Hagan Elementary School in the district of Spackenkill. From third to fifth grade, I participated in a program called Odyssey of the Mind, where we developed creative problem solving skills.

It is not groundless: the lucky guy’s major is computer science and electrical engineering with master’s degree; however, Peter only has graduated from a community college with an associate degree.

Major Project 1- Reflective Narrative Essay Back in elementary school, I believe in the third grade, I remember doing a poster project on a certain country now I don’t exactly remember which country I got. I do remember having very high expectations because it was the very first REAL project I was given on my own and not a group activity. I was very excited and so my father and I went to the store to get lots of things for this poster to make it the best first project I could turn in. My dad promised to help me with whatever I needed, as I was around 9 years old, at the time my father was my best friend so I was very excited. The expectations I had for this project academically were very high I wanted to do every little thing on the rubric including; having the number of pictures needed, having three facts about the country, keeping it neat and tidy, answering all the
