Have you ever been bullied or made fun of? How did you handle it? I’ve never been bullied physically, but when I’ve heard hurtful things about myself I’m never afraid to confront the person saying it and try to understand why they’re saying it. There have been a couple times when I’ve lost my cool and resorted to more immature ways of handling things, but nothing too drastic has happened so far.
How do you feel when you are successful at something? I struggle a lot with not giving myself enough credit. So when I am successful at something, I never take the time to admire my work, I instantly start working on something else or pushing myself to become better.
Mr. Guilbault (pronunciation: gill-bo) is the oldest of three brothers! He moved here from Canada and speaks French. If you’ve seen him around the school, you’ve noticed how great he is at keeping the kids in line while making sure they’re learning and having fun while doing it. That is NOT an easy accomplishment. We’re so glad you’re a part of the team Mr. Guilbault!
