On 8/22/2012 a major step happened.  My Master teacher need it to go to a doctors appointment and so she left right before 5th period.  She had 2 different teachers cover her periods while I helped.  Well, little did I know that was not going to happen.  The first teacher come in and told the class "I am just here to help and Mr. Escalona is the boss and he knows what we will be doing." I was in shock that it took me a minute to realize that I was going to be teaching the class.  Just to make thing better, the teacher that was coming to cover 6th period, she right away asked me what she need it to do.  I told her that I just did the whole lesson the period before and if she wanted, I can run the whole lesson again.  So, she did, she let me teach 6th period and it was awesome.  In a way I saw a glimpse into my future and I must admit that I am liking it.

For all of you who know me, I have always gone by either Benji or Ben.  But for the most part many of you don't know my full name.  My full name is Benhair and it means "king of the seas," which is ironic because I am not a big fan of the seas.  My parents told me that they just pick my name out of a book.  What I did not know that there was a story behind my name.  My name was originally going to be "Ben Hair."  Yes, I was suppose to have a middle name, but the nurses in Mexico messed  it up and combined both of them and there fore leaving me with one name instead of two.
