Drama has definitely been one of the adverse parts of my life. But, I choose to be the bigger person and move past those times.

This is where I would expect them to be with their age in consideration, they children are at the age of adolescence where their brains start to work in different, more complex ways of thinking. These students don’t have a hard time solving problems on their own, actually most of the time they solve them in better ways that I personally think of.
