16My name is Justin. I am a third grade student at Foust Elementary, but I am working in a fourth grade classroom. My principal and counselor chose me for this project because they say I am very photogenic, and I’m a great student. They asked me to share with you a few things about the “real me.”First, my favorite thing in the world is games. I like board games, video games, and computer games. My favorite thing about school is science and reading. I like my teachers a lot! I make really good grades and hardly ever get into trouble. My teachers are nice, and they do fun stuff with us. We play games when we learn and do a lot of science experiments. When I grow up I want to be the pilot of an airplane or a fireman. Another important thing about me is that I live with my mom and dad. They both work to make money for our family. Me and my dad play video games, basketball, and football. Me and my mom play checkers and chess, and sometimes we go shopping. My mom and dad are real good to me. At home I like to ride my bike and play with my friends.
