My daughter is a middle school student, and has just completed the third quarter of seventh grade. Once again, she earned honor roll! She has been on the honor roll every marking period since starting middle school. An accomplishment she is proud of, and, of course, so am I! Out of my four children, she is the only one who has done this, so I thought it might be interesting to interview her, and try to get a better understanding of just how she manages to do so well in school.

Q: How many times have you earned honor roll?
A: Seven so far.

Q: What is your secret to making honor roll so consistently?
A: Work hard at it; hand in work on time; pay attention in class; study; do my best.

Q: Is there any advice you can give other students who would like to be on the honor roll?
A: The kids in my class talk a lot, so I would say pay attention and hand in your work on time.

Q: How much time do you spend on homework each day?
A: For the most part, about 45 minutes.

Q: What do you like about being an honor roll student?
A: That teachers give me more respect than if I was a bad student, and I feel proud of myself.

Q: What are your goals for seventh grade?
A: I want to do well and get honor roll.

Q: What are your long-term goals?
A: To succeed, to get somewhere. I want to go to college and become an elementary school teacher. My older brother inspired me to be a teacher, along with the teachers I’ve liked and who were nice to me.

Q: What is your favorite subject in school?
A: English and math. I like math because I will need it for the rest of my life. I like English because I like to read and write.

Q: What is your least favorite subject?
A: Science. I don’t feel I get anything from it.

Q: How much do you think about school?
A: It depends what is going on–tests coming up, etc.

Q: How often to do you think about getting good grades?
A: A lot!

Q: What do you like best about school?
A: To learn.

Q: Least?
A: Waking up early.

Q: Any advice to teachers?
A: Don’t be mean. Make learning fun with hands-on type things, like drawing, etc.

Q: Do you have a lot of friends?
A: I wouldn’t say I’m popular, but I have as many as I need.

Q: What’s your favorite food?
A: Pancakes!

Q: Your favorite color?
A: Purple.

Q: Favorite holiday?
A: Christmas.

Congratulations, B, on being such an excellent student!  I’m very proud of you!  You are the best daughter a mom could ever hope to have–and you are such a caring, intelligent and loving young lady all rolled into one! I love you very much!!

    Awesome job B!! The good study habits will come in handy throughout your education. I have to disagree about science…chemistry, anatomy and physiology, physics, botany can all be really fun with the right teachers. :)

    If more parents would pay attention to their kids like this…ask them how they feel about their education and let them shine like this, more kids would want to do better! Congrats to both of you, what a wonderful thing to read!

    Awe . . . what a great mom!!! What a super daughter. You can so tell that you are one attentive and involved mom. Look how it is paying off!

  10. Bad Momma Says:

    That is awesome! I will have to show your interview to my 5th grader. He is getting pretty good grades but has poor study habits. He thinks he’s a college student. He’ll wait to the last minute to do assignments and stay up late to finish them.

    My dear, you have done an awesome job with all your children! I have had the privilige and pleasure to get to know B. She is a great kid, truly; smart, well-adjusted, social, and kind. She is a blessing, like her mother.

    “I wouldn’t say I’m popular, but I have as many as I need.” This is my favorite answer. What a sweetheart.
