RACING AND SCHOOL

Because I race Nationally, I spend a lot of time traveling.  Many of my friends that I race against are home schooled and don’t go to school every day like I do.  I am not able to travel to go to different places and practice everyday like a lot of them, but I do have to miss a lot of school for big races.  When I go to big races some of my friends will race and then stay the night and go home the next day or travel half way and then stop to get a hotel.  My family and I always travel throughout the night so I get home just in time to go to school the next morning.

Some of the things I have to do…….

  • I miss my entire first week of school because I am at the Loretta Lynn Nationals.  It has been a little interesting coming into school a week late and not knowing any of my teacher, the rules of the classes, or all the homework I have to make up.
  • I miss Friday’s when I have regional or area races for Nationals
  • When I went to Texas to race my family drove 24 hours straight to get to the track and home so I could go to school on Monday.
  • When we come home from Loretta’s we drive 36 hours straight so I can get to school on Monday.

Although I do everything I can to not miss school, It is in my contract that I have to be at some events, photo shoots, appearances, etc.

When I miss school I have to come back and make up all the work and tests from when I was out.

I am very proud that every year I have gone to Nationals, I have been a full time student, and on the Honor Roll….. and this year is the same.  Today is my last day of school and these are my grades.  Not bad for missing the first week and several times throughout each month.

NOTE:  A couple of the teachers have not yet put my makeup test into the book yet so these grades will be just a little higher on my actual report card.
