About Me

I am Nicholas and I am 13 years old. This is my third year at Oak View and I cannot believe that I am an eighth grader. I am currently in the CAAT program at Oak View and though the technology program there, I have been able to certify myself in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, and working on Flash. Through my elementary school years I have always had straight A’s and that was one of my most difficult goals to keep throughout middle school. I am also in the Oak View band and was part of the band that won districts last year and the national medal at the OrlandoFest competition. I was part of the 2015 Oak View soccer team that won the district title that year. I have also been playing lacrosse for two years, and this upcoming season is my third year. This is my portfolio on my middle school years. All of the images are downloadable besides for the bottom left picture in the eighth grade section which is a link to my Prezi on the topic.

Sixth Grade

Sixth grade was my first year out at Oak View. I had Mrs. Pirzer for beginning band first period, Mrs. Campbell for English second , Dr. Holmes for Earth science third, Ms. Dodyk for pre-algebra fourth, Mr. Carter for world cultures fifth, and Mr. Davis for technology sixth. I came into sixth grade in the advanced math class, so by the end of my eighth grade year I will have two high school math credits. I ended up meeting most of my closest friends current friends in sixth grade.

Seventh Grade

Seventh grade was one of my favorite years of school. I had Mr. Jones for civics first, who is now Dean Jones, Mrs. Rice for English second, Mr. Riley for Algebra third, Mrs. Pirzer for symphonic band fourth, Mrs. Campbell for technology, and Dr. Holmes for life science sixth. I was certified in three Adobe products by the of the year and many of the teachers I had this year I had again in eighth.

Eighth Grade

I am currently still in this grade, but this has been my favorite year of school so far. I have Mr. Riley for geometry first, Mrs. Campbell for technology second, Mrs. Marlowe for English third, Mrs. Pirzer for symphonic band fourth, Mrs. Brock for physical science fifth, and Mrs. Rice for American history sixth. All of my teachers are the best I could ask for helping me to succeed through the years. I will sincerely miss them as I move on to high school.
