Hi my name is Kyla Guinon and I am a senior taking Ap Biology. I love being outside and being active. I am a competitive swimmer and ride horses. I also enjoy surfing for fun. Here is a introduction video that will tell you a little more about me!

About Me Reflection
Before AP Bio I have never dreamed of creating a website. I always imagined that creating a website was an extremely high tech task to accomplish especially for a high school student. I was very surprised at how easy it was to start up my website. Word press was very user-friendly especially for someone who does not make websites for a living. Within a few minutes, I felt that I was a pro at managing my website because everything is so straight forward and easy to find on WordPress.
Some posts that I thought were very interesting were my Science News! post and the Feline Calicivirus Infection. I chose the topics of Zika Virus and Feline Calicivirus Infection because I was intrigued by both of these topics and the Feline Calicivirus Infection could affect me personally because I am a cat owner. When given the choice to choose a topic I always tried to choose a topic that I could relate to on a personal level because that way I can make my post more relatable for the reader.
Something important I learned from my other teammate’s blogs was how to make my writing more bubbly and enjoyable for someone to read. Before starting my website I was used to writing boring english and history essays that have no emotion, however, in order to be a successful blog writer one needs to show emotion in their writing. Showing emotion in my writing was something I struggled with and at times still, struggle with. However, when given the chance in class to read and comment on my teammate’s posts they helped teach me to be a better blog writer. Some examples of this would be directing the question to the reader and almost forming a conversation amongst you and the reader within your writing. I will definitely take these skills to college with me because who knows I might just have a professor who wants me to create a blog with a marine bio focus!
Dear Future AP Bio Student…
Hi Future AP Bio Students! Congratulations you are about to embark on a crazy journey of fun filled learning. The material in AP Bio is never dull and believe it or not everything is related. This class will help build your confidence as both a student and an individual. Before you know it your conversations and thinking process will become more advanced and technical. A major piece of advice I would like to give to all of you is that you NEED to stay on top of your material. As I say in my video the AP Bio curriculum is not easy, fast paced and it never stops. If you do fall behind be sure to meet with Mrs. Girard ASAP and talk to your teammates because everyone is there for you and wants you to succeed. Good effort next year and you will all do AMAZING!
