She loves her classes this year, but especially likes Algebra II, Chemistry, Geometry, and Theater. Montrell says that she enjoys the new block schedule that Woodlawn has implemented this year.
Praise was born on October 28, 2000, in New Orleans. Praise has been at Woodlawn both years of high school. She participates in sports medicine and in track and field. She is looking forward to the remainder of football season, basketball season, and track. So far this year, she has enjoyed Mr. Mosby’s Civics class the most. Unlike Montrell, Praise says that she enjoyed last year’s seven-period day more than the new block schedule because class was not as long and it was easier for her to keep up with her classwork. In her spare time, Praise says that she enjoys sitting outside writing poetry.
