Q&A With TaQuess J. – 2018

Taquon is a graduating senior and has been in the High Road program for the last 2 years, and began taking classes out in general education this year.  He also made honor roll for the first semester of the year!

What are your greatest skills and talents?
I love technology and using technology. I am pretty good on a computer and enjoy my Technology Design class.

What do you like to do outside of school?

I like to hang out with my friends, play computer games, sleep, and play with my dog.

What do you like the most about High Road?

High Road helps me with my home work and school work, but they also help me with my stress and frustration. They help me to be happy. The teachers in the classroom are all very nice, which helps me feel comfortable every day.

How do you think High Road has changed you?

Well, it has helped me to get better grades and get more work done than I used to. Also, it has kept me out of trouble and from making bad decisions.

What are your plans after graduation?

I would like to find a job that I can be successful and happy at.

Teacher Ms. Courtney and Social Worker Ms. Taylor have been working with our students on a project, using balloons, tissue paper, and mod podge to create colored light covers. Many of the students in the classroom have sensory sensitivities, and we are hopeful that the dimmer lighting will be helpful in creating a more welcoming environment.

We also had a celebration for student Dustin B. 50th day on Blue level in our behavior management system. Go Dustin!
