Class of 2018
Early Education and Care
My name is Elizabeth Rash. I’m from Braintree and I live at home with my mom, dad and little brother. I am in the Early Education and Care program here at Blue Hills. I’m the head cheerleading captain at Blue Hills and I’ve done cheerleading here for four years. I’m also a gymnastics coach outside of school. I’ve been coaching for five years.
I have applied to schools to be in an occupational therapy program to achieve my goal of eventually becoming an occupational therapist.
What BHR has done for you
For me, BHR has opened so many different opportunities career-wise showing me how many different paths I can go within the education and care field. BHR has also given me so many different friends from most, if not all, of the sending towns.
Why you came to BHR instead of your local high school
My older brother attended Blue Hills so I always knew that I wanted to go here but the fact that I am a hands-on-learner also helped with my decision to attend.
A quotation that inspires you, or that you live by
“Forget the mistake but remember the lesson.”
Your favorite book or movie
My favorite movie is “The Blind Side.”
Best advice you ever received from a teacher/parent/family member/friend
The best advice I’ve ever received is “Your head knows what your heart’s already telling you to do so listen to it.”
Advice that you would give to a grade 8 student applying to BHR
Even if you’re uncertain, apply anyway because it isn’t like your sending town and the people you are in your technical program with will become your little family. Also, it goes by quicker than you think so enjoy it!
Teacher or faculty member at BHR who has helped or inspired you the most
Ms. Hedges or Ms. Poliseno has helped me out the most.
Who is your hero?
My hero is my Nana because of all of the tough things she went through in her life she still managed to stay smiling through it all.
Most memorable moment at BHR
My most memorable moment at BHR was during my first pep rally during our halftime routine I did a back tuck and everyone in the gym, after I did it, started screaming and cheering because the team hadn’t had a good tumbler in a long time and it made me so happy that I had chosen to try out for and be a part of the team.
