    Megan Christine Carlton
    Hi everyone, as most of you know my name is Megan Christine Carlton. My parents gave me my name because it means Great Christian. I lived in Baden, PA for a few years, but then in the summer before I started first grade my family moved to the North Hills in Pittsburgh, PA which is where I live now. I live with my mom, dad, younger sister Rachel, and my cat named Twister. My family is very important to me. Over the past year my sister and I have grown a lot closer and now, not only is she my sister, but she’s also one of my best friends.

    From 1st-12th grade I went to school in the North Hills School District. I was very involved in clubs and activities all through my years in school. While in elementary school I participated in 4 different sports and played percussion (drums) in the band.. By the time I had entered the junior high I decided to quit soccer, basketball, and swimming, but chose to continue playing softball for three different teams until the end of my senior year. Entering the junior high was when my focus switched from sports to music. In 8th grade I joined the marching band which was one of the best decisions of my life. I ended up staying in marching band for all 5 years. Throughout junior high and high school I was also a part of jazz band, orchestra, symphony band, pit orchestra, pep band, SADD, and AFS.
    Another huge part of my life thus far has been my church activities. I grew up in the church, and while we lived in Baden my Grandfather was actually our preacher. Once we moved to the North Hills I got very involved in the church choir and youth group. Through the youth group I participated in 4 plays and a musical. I also participated in 5 different mission trips which lead me to places including Iowa, Tennessee, and West Virginia. I love helping out with VBS, in our church nursery, and playing drum set in our praise team. The youth group leader at my church introduced me to a week-long Christian leadership camp called TYC (Trinity Youth Conference). I absolutely loved it and then, in 2008, after only my first 2 years of attending the camp, I was put on the planning team as a youth staff member to help plan different aspects of the conference. This past summer was my second and final year as a staff member, however I am able to continue attending TYC as a camper up until the summer after my senior year in college.
    I absolutely love living in Pittsburgh. I think everything about Pittsburgh is wonderful especially Primanti Brothers, The Steelers, the Pens, and Kennywood. Even though I miss being in Pittsburgh, I am really enjoying the atmosphere here at Westminster. While I am here, I will be majoring in
    Early Childhood / special education
    with hopes to become a
    special education teacher
    so that I can help kids who are mentally challenged or have learning disabilities. I would also like to get involved with youth ministry and mission work in the future. I make friends pretty easily and I try my best to trust everyone until they give me a reason not to. I’m not the most outgoing person you will ever meet, but I love talking to people and having a good time. If you have any questions or just want to talk, don’t hesitate to ask.

    Ryan Alexander Colby
    Background: Well, my name is Ryan Colby, but most people just call me by my last name. I am going to be a Pre-Med major with a minor in French. At home are my parents Ron and Donna, my brother Ron Jr. and three dogs. I have two mastiffs, (the dog from the movie The Sandlot) named Oreo and Tofu. My third dog is named Socks and I have no clue what breed she is. I love sports, just about any kind, and enjoy playing them even more. I have a sister named Elisa who has her own family now, living in Virginia while enlisted i the Army.

    Gabrielle Marie Elisco
    Hey everyone! As you know, my name is Gabrielle, but most people call me Gabby. In highshool, however, I was known as "Gabe." A student teacher could never say my name properly so she would always call me Gabe, and it stuck. My favorite color is blue, as you could tell by this text. I think of myself as a very outgoing person, and thoughtful of others. I am very opinionated, but try to never be rude in demonstrating it. My beliefs and virtues are held very close to me. I can usually be heard from a mile away, partially because I am full-blooded italian, which I am VERY proud. I absolutely love food. I was a cheerleader from 6th grade to my senior year, and was captain my senior year which was really fun. I was very involved in high school in different clubs and organizations. Here I plan to be involved, but as for my first year I wanted a smooth transition and focus on my studies. I am an English major with a minor in secondary eduation. My family consists of my mom, stepdad, dad, and sister. I love them very much. Family is very important in my life. My sister, Ashley, is a graduate of Westminster. She is a huge help to me throughout the admission process and now in school. I have a puppy named Ellie, and a fish named Squishy. My grandparents are also very important to me, they are like another set of parents to me. I have a boyfriend named Robert whom I like to spend a lot of time with. He goes to Slippery Rock. I am a Christain and love Jesus Christ. I am a proud GOLD and BLACK bleeding Pittsburgh Steeler fan! I like the rain more than sunshine and love fall time! Questions? Just ask! =)

I know people say that you will grow away from your friends in high school, but I know that these girls will be in my life forever no matter what.

    I myself am a very athletic person and do many sports which include football, wrestling, soccer (at one time), paintball, and mixed martial arts fighting (or as it is more commonly known as MMA).
    Outside of sports, I love sci-fi books and movies. One of my favorite sci-fi genres is a board game called warhammer 40k( a board game which uses 28mm models and dice to simulate futeristic battles). This kinda makes me a nerd but I do not really care.

    My Future "Plan": After graduating with my degree in Pre-Med here, I plan on attending Medical School and getting a degree in sports medicine. My dream job is being a trainer in the Pros and using my minor in French to volunteer my services in the Olympics and hopefully traveling to a European country during that time. It may not sound too appealing to anyone, but it makes me happy.
    My Flaws:(- Okay so here is the big one which you all will probably pay most attention to. The biggest problem that I have had in my life is trusting people too early before actually getting to know everything about them. I have been "screwed over" in the past as well as more recently. I am a huge stickler for organization and mildly OCD about my room. I have a bad temper about a few things which I get carried away with, such as relationships (mine), my family, and people giving their full potential.

    Who am I? Well I'm Natalie, but that doesn't tell you much! I am a small town girl, that likes nothing more than being home with my family, playing with my pets. My mom is my best friend and my hero, my older brother, Keagan, is the greatest guy I know, and my dad well there's really no way to discribe him, other than my dad. My grandparents are the sweetest people I know, and I would like nothing more than to be like them when I'm 80!
    As previously stated I loved spending time with my pets. I have a total of five, two dogs, two cats, and one horse. Dogs are my favorite pets, because even when you are having a bad day they always are so happy to see you. My favorite of my pets is Nala, she is a yellow lab and shepperd mix. My other dog is Nitro, my cats are Bob (who is a female) and Tiger, and Sugar is our paint horse.
    Other hobbies of mine include playing the piano. I have played for eights years and I have a recital every year. Also, I love to be outdoors! Jetskiing and camping are my all time favorite things to do. I would try anything that has to do with nature and adventure. For the first time, I went zip-lining this year in Deep Creek, Maryland and it was very fun. I would love to fly in a private prop-plane sometime.
    But what am I doing here at Westminster? I'm a Early Childhood/ Special Education major! And yes I love to work with kids. I absolutly love how honest and iniscent they are. I have had previous experience working with kids through a tutoring program I did at my elementary school and an after school program at my church for elementary kids. And my prefect job would be working with a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade class at South Side Elementary School, my elementary school!

    These videos are samples and visual proof and demonstrations of the American Education society and the problems which it deals with.
    
    Discussion Questions:
    1.) Is standardized testing a good evaluation mechanism for the education in America? Why or why not?
    2.) What are some other ways that America can get feedback from their education reforms?
    3.) What is the biggest problem which the American government should address in your school?
    Enjoy:) and as always, be respectful and nice to others....

    Education - Ryan Colby
    Our education system in America has been on a slippery slope decline since the early 1920's. Many standardized tests and evaluations suffice as evidence for these accusations. Our governmental leaders have put into place many programs and precedents so that students are not lost in the American education upbringing. The "No Child Left Behind" act is one of many programs that were set up so that young Americans can benefit from the public and private schooling systems nation wide.
    Back in the olden days, 1920's-1960's, many students who had trouble learning in their own environment were just passed on from teacher to teacher without any specific help or extra care. Problems like ADD and dyslexia were very common "learning disabilities" that qualified many students to receive passing grades, just so that they are no longer a problem for that teacher. Special schools and academies were put into effect after these problems were brought to the attention of the government. In every public school in America, you can find specific learning centers made just for students with these learning hardships. The usage of these centers were open to any and all students who thought they could benefit from the extra care of the teachers and tutors alike. The standardized test scores around the globe took a positive turn and kept rising annually.
