This semester I stayed close to my comfort zone, but tried to slowly get farther and farther away from it. My latest article I interviewed Mrs. Gillis whom asked for me to send her the questions over the email which made it a little less intimidating. I hope next semester I can get interviews with people higher up and actually get a face to face interview with them. My first story about teachers using technology was more of a news article where I usually would have chosen a feature or opinion article. Sometimes I feel with the news articles I don’t do as well because sometimes when I’m not supposed to I put in my own voice. Then when I have to put in my own voice I have to get something I actually care about for people to hear it. In the end I thought teaching with technology was a good news article compared to stuff I’ve written in journalism. I also tried to come in a lot in the beginning which died out toward the end because it made me mad that I was finishing other peoples pages. I hope I can come in more when im not working. Overall, I didn’t really move too far away from my comfort zone so I hope next semester I do.
