I like this class...I have lots of fun but I also learn so much about the field of business. Being online was very interesting. All of my assignments were online so if I didn’t finish my work in class then I could easily do it at my house. I competed in DECA and went to the state competition. It was very fun. I have received many awards while in this class. I competed in DECA and sent to the state competition... it was fun. I have received many awards while in this class.
