I felt as if the Meriden School System needs to work to better motivate their students. In Meriden, we face lots of students coming from distraught families. This poses a bigger challenge for educators and administrators to efficiently perform their duty. However, with some effort and dedication, school faculty can empower through students in the classroom. The trick is to approach them in a genuine way. In doing so, students will feel a sense of respect, which will incline them to portray that respect back.
Overall, my experience with Meriden public schools has been a great one. Being a part of Meriden public schools for 12 years has improved my life tremendously. Within it, I was able to not only learn important skills in the classroom but also interpersonal relationships with my classmates and teachers. Meriden public schools taught me the importance of diversity and to accept everyone in life. Overall, I would not trade my experiences for anything else.
