Portrait of Jarvis MS studentHi! My name is Dakotah Dudgeon and I attend Jarvis Middle School. I am in eighth grade in Ms. Murphy’s class.

What is your favorite thing about school?

I love everything about school! I just love reading!

What have you learned that you think is important?

I think science is important and I won a science award last year. I learned about theories like a meteor hit the earth and made the moon and all of the plants used to be purple.

If you could change just one thing about school, what would that be?

I wish I didn’t have to eat lunch in the morning. I feel like I’m eating lunch right after I ate breakfast.

What would you like to do for a living some day?

I want to be Special Education teacher.

Do you participate in any activities outside of school? If so, what do you do and what do you like best about those activities?

Oh yes, lots of things! I love swimming, swinging, biking and going on vacation. I’ve been to Bermuda, Disney, and Maine. I’m going to Mexico next. I have to take an airplane to the ship. I need my passport first. I go to church too and played an angel in the Christmas play.

If you could do anything on a weekend, what would you do?

I wish I could go to school on the weekends. I always want to go swimming and go hiking.

What is your favorite book or author?

James and the Giant Peach

If we were to listen to your iPod or MP3, what would be playing?

KidzBop makes me dance. I go crazy in the car when I hear it! My favorite song is Fireworks by Katy Perry.

What is your favorite television show or movie?

The Sound of Music! I can sing all of the songs.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

I would go to the Gulf of Mexico because it’s really warm there.

What one thing would you share that people might not know about you?

I’m a talented artist. I really like to draw picnic tables, rocking chairs, school desks and cruise ships. I can draw self-portraits too.
