second draft

At Miami Beach Senior High we are faced with many issues among the student body. Whether it is the two-lunch schedule, over population or uniform code, we really look at the big dilemmas at our school. But, many people don’t think about another big problem which is recycling. After interviewing two teachers and two students, it is clear that recycling is not a priority at MBSH. Three out of the four people interviewed were not sure who ran the recycling program at Beach High.

“It used to be Ms. Klein, but now I believe it’s Mr. Brown” said Nadia Zaniri, World History Teacher. Dennis Hill (Spanish Teacher) & Annie Pfeffer (sophomore) weren’t sure either. Obviously, the recycling is not enforced at our school.

After asked how the recycling system can change Dennis Hill replied “We all could all change it [recycling] by cooperating with one another and try finding ways to save paper, protecting text books, and just making our school more environmentally friendly.”

So why recycle? “There are many benefits of recycling, it’s easy and it can save our resources, so why not do it” said Nadia Zananiri, World History teacher.

“You can reuse resources and make old things new again” said Alex Baribero, sophomore. “It [recycling] saves our planet, you know GO GREEN! said sophomore Annie Pfeffer.” It’s also good for the environment and can save us.”

“Recycling makes us aware that resources are limited, some of us act as if resources are everywhere like money, and materials”said Dennis Hill, Spanish teacher. The awareness spreads a good attitude and making sure that resources last for a while.” Many people can agree that recycling is only a good thing, so why not enforce it.

One of the problems with recycling at Miami Beach Senior High is the location of the actual recylcing bins. “Well, there are bins in my classroom, but around the school, I don’t know.” (Nadia Zananiri).

No idea, (Annie Pfeffer) never seen one.”

Oh yeah, last year there were more, (Dennis Hill) and teachers had boxes in their rooms and they brought the boxes to a bin outside the building.”

Students and teachers aren’t aware of recycling bin locations and this is probably the reason why no one really recycles at MBSH. One way we can fix the recycling is by promoting it around the school. For example,
“Well, right now, what you are doing[interviewing people]is very helpful and makes us aware that recycling is important and it reminds teachers and is a reminder that just tells people to recycle.”

Recycling…

At Miami Beach Senior High we are faced with many issues among the student body. Whether it is the two-lunch schedule, over population or uniform code, we really look at the big dilemmas at our school. But, many people don’t think about another big problem which is recycling. Recycling is a very important process in today’s society. We need to learn how to recycle and be environmentally friendly so we can all live on this earth for a long time. After interviewing two teachers and two students, I have realized that many people at Beach High are not environmentally aware. When I asked Mrs. Zananiri who was in charge of the program at our school, she replied “It used to be Ms. Klein, but now I believe it’s Mr. Brown.” Mr. Hill & Annie Pfeffer weren’t sure and Alex Baribero knew it was Mr. Brown. Obviously, the recycling is not enforced at our school. So, when I asked Mr. Hill how we can change the enforcement, he replied that “We all could all change it by cooperating with one another and try finding ways to save paper, protecting text books, and just making our school more environmentally friendly.” This is a great idea, and we should all be enforcing recycling. There is a recycling system at our school, but no one really knows about it. There are many benefits of recycling. Mrs. Zananiri said “It’s easy and it can save our resources, so why not do it.” Alex replied “That you can  Reuse resources and make old things new again.” Annie thinks that “It saves our planet, you know GO GREEN! It’s also good for the environment and can save us.” Mr Hill believes “Recycling makes us aware that resources are limited, some of us act as if resources are everywhere like money, and materials. The awareness spreads a good attitude and making sure that resources last for a while.”
