Meet Anthony

Anthony Ellingson and Jon

Anthony Ellingson- I have Anthony in my first-hour class this trimester and last trimester. I was worried that Anthony might not enjoy my class or the discussions we have. However, as the term went on, I learned Anthony has a great sense of humor and some great insightful questions that add greatly to class discussions. He is curious in class and doesn’t always have a lot to say but when he does it counts! He worked hard to earn the full credit last trimester and I was happy to report the passing grade. He is fun to have in class, he brings a different way of thinking to many situations, and he is genuine and thoughtful about many of the stories and topics we discuss. 

I sat down with Anthony and asked him a few questions. Mind you I made predictions and then asked him what his thoughts were. This is how it went. 

What do you like about SWAHS? Why?

Jon- I like Jon’s class. I love the way that Jon reads Mice and Men. I really love the school food and the way teachers greet me at the door. I just think the school is cool and the teacher’s rock!!!

Anthony- I like Jon's class, I like the teachers, don’t mind school and the subjects discussed. 

What are some of your hobbies and interests? 

Jon- I like music. I want to produce and make music. I want to write lyrics and destroy nerds on the mic. I like breakfast sandwiches and always need my phone to check in with my people. I also like playing games online with my friends. I play games too late sometimes and come to school a little sleepy. 

Anthony- Music, listen to music, play video games- 

What are your plans after school? 

Jon- IDK. I want to make money. I want to make music. I want to become famous. I want to play video games.  I do not want to go to college because it costs too much money.

Anthony- Get a job, get some money, make and produce music.
