Because of-my experience here, I have changed. I will never forget all I have learned and those around. First and foremost, I will always rernember all of my teachers. It's because of them that I was able to /obtain an education and learn about myself and issues of life. Yes, there were teachers I didn't agree with or even like, but from the bottom of my heart I respected-their position in life. Teachers pdssess a gift that enables them to touch the lives of many stu- d^nts. I will always feel in debt because my teachers gave so rrtiich to me. I want to thank all of; my teachers and let them know how much I appreciate all oftheir effort. • Aside from my teachers, I will never forget all of the friendships I have established at Ukiahi. Many people have affected and forever changed some aspects of my life. It was the support and guidance of friends that enabled me to carry through my high school career. I Little formed strong relationships with some of my peers that will continue into my adult life. I have appreciated the diversity of students. This has allows me to learn about people and experience different friendships with different people. I have learned how to relate to people and have enjoyed my orientation with those around. Because of my experience at Ukiah High, I have changed. I feel I am more independent and determined. I always want to do my best. I am not afraid of making mistakes because I feel I will learn from my error and this will create a stronger person. The gift of learning has been instilled within me, and I crave to learn new facets of life. As a whole, Ukiah High has been an unforgettable experience. It has been a major part of my life. Heck, it has been my life for four years. I will miss Ukiah High and all of my friends, but am prepared to move on and make new friends. Computers and learning By YASEMIN CRAWFORD Ukiahi's technology is far more advanced than you might think. In our computer/career classes we have brand new GATEWAY 2000 computers, complete with incredibly useful software. Luckily they were installed over winter break so we lost no class time. There are a multitude of helpful programs that affiliate us with devices we need to know how to use. These programs include: database, spreadsheet and the ever helpful word processing. This class in particular helps us for the future. We can apply the knowledge we gain to getting summer jobs, class writing assignments, college organization, and a life in the business world. We have also done assignments that .help us prepare for our future. Most of these assignments center around discovering who we are. We have done everything from discussing our hopes to finding our weaknesses. Other projects we have covered were career planning assignments, which reviewed what we would like to do and whether or not it met our estimated financial needs. Some of the more adventurous things we have done this year are to go to Mendocino College, to visit the career fair, and a job shadowing project where we went into the community to observe business people at work. Overall this class has been a growing for me. I sincerely hope that this department is able to continue for many years to come. It is such a critical part of our education, and I'm positive others will get the same rewards from it that I did. When asked how she got involved, Marissa says "I like to help."
