I WOULD LIKE TO SAY AS YOU BEGIN THIS JOURNEY . . .

(directed to upcoming Sophomores from graduating Seniors)

. . . that you should actually take it seriously. If you're like me when someone gets up and talks, especially since it is not for a grade, you tend to zone out and not pay attention so well. I can tell you that I did this to our StrengthBank® talk group mentor for too long before I realized that what she was saying was actually useful, and makes good sense. Learn about what she has to say, and it will be fun anyways. She (the StrenthBank® Mentor) only wants you to be more successful so give the mentor a chance to. Good luck with your first year in high school and have fun.- Nick (Class of 2004, Trinity High School, 2003-2004 "Trojan Talk" Groups)

…first off you will actually love your Trojan Talk.It is fun and everyone opens up to talk and is not intimidated by anyone.If you are not sure what you want to do with yourself when you graduate, you will be the end of this year.Most importantly, you will find out so much about yourself

- Jennifer (Class of 2004, Trinity High School, 2003-2004 "Trojan Talk" Groups) 

. . . donít worry it will be fun.In this Trojan Talk class you will be working on using your strengths, and even your weaknesses to make any volatile situation something that is diffusible.Remember to make a network of friends because you will need them sometime in high school; trust me, I needed mine multiple times every year.Best of luck, you might need, but donít let that sound too ominous, youíll do fine.

- Quinn (Class of 2004, Trinity High School, 2003-2004 "Trojan Talk" Groups)

I would like to advise you guys to learn [as] much as you can from the StrengthBank® project.I wish I could have started when I was a sophomore. When I was a sophomore, I donít even think we had a mentor and [as a] junior it didnít even seem like our mentor even cared.Even though [our StrengthBan®] mentor is the best mentor ever, I didnít quite accept her at first due to our past mentors.I thought I would rather just have a study hall but am glad that I couldnít now. It didnít take me long to notice that this Trojan Talk was something different. So before I go, remember to open up your hearts and minds and you will truly learn a lot about yourself.

Other kids should pay attention to this class Ďcuz they could learn a lot and know what to do and how to work with people in the future.

- Maria (Burleson High School, Fall 2005 Talk Groups)

 

I had a lot of fun in this class; it helped me know the real me and how I need to try to clean up my personality. At first I didnít like it, but then I did, and I would like to thank Mrs. Bankston for helping me through my shyness (but sometimes I still am), but this helped me to like talking to a lot of people at once.

- Student (Burleson High School, Fall 2005 Talk Groups)

 

Um . . . If you pay attention to this class, you will learn something about yourself. This class helped me learn more about me, and what I want to do when I leave high school. It also helps you learn more about your classmates and how to talk with other people that are hard to get along with, so you should take this lesson and learn from it. I promise you that this will help you in the real world.

What I learned in the talk group that I would never even [have] thought before was that 4 different animal groups and how all the students in my class fit into those groups. I learned that I was a "chimp" and that makes so much sense to me Ďcause of what you thought . . . and how we learn to work with the other people in the different groups. And also, it made us think what we want for our futures, for now anyway . . .

- Jennifer (Class of 2008, Burleson High School, Fall 2005 Talk Groups)

 

This helped me learn my attitude and how much my #1 animal really is a mustang. I never would have known I was or acted like a mustang.
