Mrs. Morten was my leadership teacher last year when I was a seventh grader. She is happy and positive all of the time like a ray of sunshine. Most of the time she steps outside of her comfort zone and does a lot of different things. These are just a couple of reasons why I look up to her.
Mrs. Morten is about medium height and she has short, blonde hair. Her eyes are a bright blue and she is fairly tan. Her smile is radiant and her teeth are bright white. She usually wears nice clothing but on Friday’s she wears an O’Neill shirt and blue jeans. In class, she is full of energy, even though it was almost the end of the day.
She is always full of joy, because every day she would meet us out in the hallway before we came into the classroom and say hello or ask us how our day was going. Even though she wanted to teach social studies, she stepped outside of her comfort zone by teaching this leadership class. Lastly, she is always setting goals for herself. If she wants something, then she goes and gets it. It doesn’t matter to her what other people think of what she is doing; she just goes for it.
A few days during her class, we made dream boards. She told us this would help us to follow our dreams and reach our goals. We spent a whole week working on this and I thought it was fun. I had dreams for myself, but I never had enough motivation to reach them. That changed when I was in her leadership class. She told us that if we want something, act like it has already happen. If you put positive vibes out into the universe, it will eventually come back to you.
Mrs. Morten has been a great influence and has changed the way I look at life. I used to look at life as just going through the motions but now I look as life as a chance to help change the world and live my life as much as I can. She has had a positive influence on me because she has told me that if you want something, go get it and you should take risks because even if you fail, that means you’re trying and something good could come out of it!
