Why I picked Brookleen…
I picked Brooklyn Shotter because she went to elementary school last year unlike most of us who went to middle school in 5th grade. She is described as a good student who works quietly by teachers and peers. I thought that being in elementary school in 5th grade would be a challenge for being in middle school with no experience; I was wrong, and she said that the only challenge was catching on to the daily routine.So far she loves school here at Scribner.
