Government, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Calculus, & AP Spanish. She feels that her
AP courses have improved her work ethic along with time management, & study skills.

feels Mr. Porco is a super cool teacher, and a lot of the skills from APUSH can be used
in the future. Mariah has applied to UofM, MSU, K College, MI Tech, & WMU. She plans
