Hello current and potential Regents!
My name's Katy Jenkins and I've just been appointed new blogger for the school. I wanted to take the time to get my name out and to give everyone a 'hello'!
This is a bit of an odd time to starting writing, seeing as the semester is coming to an end. This was sort of what I wanted to write about anyway, so I'll let this be my intro post.
Finals.... Everyone hates them, right? Luckily for me, my major (Musical Theatre) means that finals work a little differently for me. My gen ed classes have normal finals, of course, but my theatre/music/dance classes are different. Because my field is so performance-based, it's quite rare to have a "real" final in one of these classes. Our final grades usually consist of recitals, or juries to show off what we've accomplished over the course of the semester.
I do have a written test in Theatre History and a composition final for Music Theory I. Everything else is a performance, though.
I'll definitely be checking in again before I go home for Winter Break (leaving on Dec. 14th), but until then... I wish everyone luck on their upcoming Finals.
