In the narrative “Grace Is A Gift” Laura Durham talks about how in the third grade her teacher showed her grace. She was told if she didn’t bring her spelling test at the end of that week that she wouldn’t be able to participate in the activities that the other kids were doing. That Friday she forgot her spelling test but her teacher had still let her participate because how much of a good student she was. The meaning of the story is that grace is a gift and that you should be thankful for it and not take it for granted because it’s not everyday that you are shown grace on things like turning in homework late.
By being able to create resentment and a barrier between her and her mother, she is finally able to live her own life. She no longer will be considered a child by anyone; she is able to be a woman seeking love. Mag wanted to keep Maureen around because she wanted to maintain their emotional connection that they have. Even though Mag chose to lie to her multiple times, she did it out of love for Maureen. In most cases of unresolved Electra complexes, it does not come to this extreme of measures, where a daughter has to kill her mother.
Be Yourself “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” These words by Eleanor Roosevelt mean that you can be who you want to be and people can only make feel ashamed about it if you let them. Her words reflect well on my story because I felt this way my freshmen year of high school. My first year of high school was already nerve-wrecking because I didn’t know anybody so I was trying to make friends. I didn’t want to stand out and be the girl everyone talks about so I stayed silent.
I used Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques with some of my clients. I was not trained in this therapy but was familiar with the idea of being in the here-and-now. This technique worked for my schizophrenic client by keeping her focused on what was happening each day by writing in a journal and distracting her from what she thought had been happening in her past. I was able to use Art Therapy with the client I had with PTSD, depression, and suicidal thoughts. I had one client on probation who was ordered to be in counseling before she could get off of probation.
I enrolled in college not knowing what exactly to expect and with many doubts but by taking that gigantic leap out of my comfort zone, my life has changed drastically. In high school, I was never the type of student to strive for A’s or to be on the honor roll. My siblings were the ones who did great in school with minimum effort but I struggled and often became discouraged. I remember vividly telling my mother I was going to drop out in the ninth grade.
The time I experienced a major failure would have to be getting terrible grades in middle school. I would be getting failing grade, not caring at all. Once I ended seventh grade, my teacher had a conference with my mom and me , and they said that if I do not get my act together then I would repeat the grade again and that I remember my teacher telling me that I have to go High school because she said it was my calling to succeed in school. After I have finished with summer school, I got everything together and getting academics straight. One Day, I got an email, that said that one of my great friends passed away, and that left me so heartbroken, I stopped getting good grades; everything went downhill, because of that incident and that I became

Making sure there is minimal grammar errors is important, because it will make it easier for the readers to understand the essay, just like the sentence and thesis errors. When I would review my drafts for each essay, I started to look harder for these errors with each essay as the class progressed. I started to find more and more errors that I know I would not have found in the beginning of this class. There is an article that helped me learn to truly revise my essays, the title is, “Revision Strategies of Student Writers”, it is by Nancy Sommers. It is about different strategies students can use to revise their paper.
My grades and behavior were the main reasons I was on the border of not graduating. I was so focused on others that I never realized I let myself go. Graduating eighth grade helped prove to myself that I was not a failure and every step I took was only closer to being successful. Graduation year came faster than ever, I started to lose my outstanding grades and started to feel satisfied with low percentages as long as I was passing. It was my last year and all I wanted to do was have fun.
When I got into middle school and started taking classes like Algebra 1 and Spanish that would count for high school credit, it became very apparent to me that the grades that I get in these classes could very easily affect my high school GPA and my ability to get into a college of my choice. It was this realization that pushed me to further improve myself and my better being. During the seventh grade I got diagnosed with ADHD and started a medication regiment that significantly helped me focus and understand the lessons that my teachers were teaching. All of this was great and my grades did significantly improve, but the cons
I would frequently receive 3s and sometimes even 2s. However, the worst critiquing I have ever experienced was in 8th grade. My teacher Ms. Garncarz had us write narratives similar to the one I am writing now but she had us work in partnerships. After mostly working individually, with some help from my partner, my teacher told me that my writing wasn 't original and that I needed to stop having my writing rely on others. This took me back, because normally as children we were praised for our writing and collaborative efforts, however, now individuality is key and writing is criticized more than
The first time I had met Andrea was in the beginning of the spring semester of 2008 at ECC, when I was enrolled in her Typography class that she was teaching at the time. Frankly, my first impression of her was not positive. I felt that she was very intimidating and load-spoken. I wanted to drop the class after the first day, but I had to stay enrolled due to financial aid. However, after surviving a couple of months in her class, her style of teaching started to make sense.
