Sketch of a working teenBy Christine Surna Khayat, Courier Staff Writer
from the Center for Disease Control
It’s 3:30 and Logan’s dismissal bell rings, releasing a rush of students out of their classrooms. Many of the students will head home, and others will attend a club or participate in another after school activity. Many, of the students, however, will end their school day only to begin their workday.
So how do students with jobs get all of their schoolwork done and work at their job, all without sacrificing any part of their education? It’s simple, actually--they just can’t.

If you are a frequent reader of the Collins Comment here on the Courier, you’ve read of my opinions of school and the various issues that I either disagree with or accept without complaint, but for this particular entry, I would like to take you “deeper into the rabbit hole”, if I may.
I’ve found in my years here at James Logan High, that these four years of adolescence are extremely difficult for many. It comes to a point for us to find ourselves for who we are, rather than who we pretended to be in middle school. For most students, they lose their identity in intermediate schooling because of the entry into adolescence. Their desire to fit in and find a place over-power’s their will of self-identification. When we come into high school, most begin to shed the image that was posted before, to become adults; parts of society.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
(November 5, 1850–October 30, 1919) was an American author and poet. Her best-known work was Poems of Passion
, and her autobiography, The Worlds and I
was published in 1918 shortly before her death.
Ella Wheeler was born in 1850 on a farm in rural Johnstown, Wisconsin, east of Janesville, the youngest of four children. The family soon moved to north of Madison. She started writing poetry at a very early age, and was well known as a poet in her own state by the time she graduated from high school. When about 28 years of age, she married Robert Wilcox. They had one child, a son, who died shortly after birth. Not long after their marriage, they both became interested in Theosophy, New Thought, and Spiritualism.
