During this past year in Journalism, I can say I’ve learned a lot. 

Journalism has helped me get creative and understand the different types of writing I never thought I would write. 

My experience in this class has been amazing. 

In the beginning, I didn’t choose journalism as one of my electives.

If I’m being honest I didn’t even know Loretto had a newspaper page. 

I chose to stay in journalism because I had heard it would be fun and getting to write all the different stories would be interesting.

Fortunately, this was correct. 

I had no idea what I was doing half the time, but with my amazing classmates and Mrs. Lockhart, I was able to accomplish so much. 


Thank you

Having Mrs. Lockhart as my journalism teacher has been a privilege. 

There is no better teacher I would’ve chosen to teach this class. 

Thank you Mrs. Lockart for making this class fun and entertaining. 

I can say I never got bored of what we were learning. 

Even though I still don’t know my sports, and I never scored anything higher than a 6 on the current event quizzes, I can say I had fun. 

Thank you for not giving up on us and understanding when we were struggling with our stories. 

As for my classmates, I am so grateful to have such helping friends who took their time to help me when I needed it. 

Thank you guys for making me a better writer. 



Some advice that I can give to the upcoming journalists, is to not underestimate your writing abilities. 

When I entered journalism, it was intimidating being in a class full of amazing writers. 

It’s really easy to feel self-conscious and not feel good enough about a piece of writing.

No matter this feeling it is very important to feel confident.

People only know what you tell them. 

Confidence is crucial when writing a good story. 



I definitely recommend this class to anyone who is considering it. 

This class is different from any other elective I’ve taken.

It truly opened my eyes and expanded my mind to different opportunities. 

I am excited to read future prax articles from the upcoming classes.
