Kat, which state do you actually live in? Do you go to a public school? What grade are you in? I'm a retired high school teacher, so I'm curious. I ended up retiring from hs so I could homeschool my two kids, who are both very intelligent, too. I taught my daughter from 7th-12th grades, and my son (6 yrs. younger) from 1st-12th. They were both honor students in college! 😃
