Under "Academic honors and achievements" I literally don't have anything to list. No membership in honors societies, no fellowships or scholarships, no thesis, etc.

Your academic achievement is your GPA.

You were leader of a student group.

You have an internship and teaching experience.

One or more of these softs would be a good basis for a PS. The point of the PS is to show a side of yourself that does not come through in other components of the application. Did you change a life during your teaching job? Did a life change you? How about the internship? You worked awfully hard for those grades and that score. You might want to consider consulting an admissions counselor to be sure your PS is of the same calibur as the numbers.
