I do not that not let any setbacks or obstacles interfere with my education. I have maintain a 3.7 GPA despite of my after school job during my junior year. My mom told me during my tenth grade year that my junior year was going to either make me or break me. She explained I had to be really on top of my studies and I had no room for small mistakes.
I began college as a freshman at Central Michigan University thinking I was going to become an elementary teacher. I knew I wanted to make an impact on peoples lives but after my first week of classes, I remember telling myself becoming a teacher is not how I wanted to do it. I went to my counselor and added a social work course to my schedule. I had finally found courses I enjoyed taking and academically excelled in. Which brings me to where I am now, pursuing my degree in social work.
High School teachers should include important life lessons/methods for teens to survive life after high school. The reason is, in high school students are learning how to become young women and men and knowing how ways on how to go about doing income taxes, managing their funds, and other critical skills that come with being an adult. Adding life lessons in a schools curriculum is helping students become responsible and also teaching them accountability. In High School, students feel as if they aren’t learning anything that’ll be valuable in their future, they’re not being taught life skills. We can relate to not learning anything that helped me with the real world after high school and the pros and cons when it comes to taking out loans.
Growing up, my parents pushed me to do my best in school; I didn’t question it much, although looking back, I recognize that schooling is a vital component to be successful in life. I will be attending UNR this fall, the first in my family to do so. Being a first generation college student, my parents cannot provide any information regarding college classes, scholarships, or tutoring. I’ve worked diligently throughout high school but I cannot venture into college blind; TRiO would be a highly beneficial program enabling me to reach my potential in college.
She is loyal to the core and the most authentic definition of a champion the world has ever met. Her faith in me, and my potential is the sole reason that I’m pursuing a degree in elementary education. My hope is to reach students that are loosing confidence in school and themselves and assure them that they can do anything that they are willing to work for. It may not be easy but it’s possible. Mrs. Howell unquestionably instilled in me a love for learning and it is my mission to infuse that love into the hearts of children in my classroom for years to
I want to improve the CPS systems especially, because of work overload a lot of children are suffering. Eventually, I would like to open my own agency that will not only empower and/or encourage children to be there better self but will also secure them a future in life. An agency that is truly going to bring in positive and great results and would not consist of burnouts/work overload. Experience as a Student In undergraduate school, there were a lot of good moments, as well as struggling moments.
That is what this life is about. You sacrifice for those you love. That is what my parent’s did. They brought my sister and I to this land of opportunity and even though they used their chance on us, their chance to follow their dreams, I will follow mine for them. People always ask me how I do so well in school, how I have the energy to do all the homework, study for the tests, do extra curricular activities, and never give up.
College readiness is a topic of great importance to several groups, including the High school teachers who prepare the students prior to college, parents because they are aware that their children hopes and dreams of a bright future depends almost entirely on it, employers who desire qualified workforce with the ability to enable the companies to be productive and globally competitive, and the government officials who appreciate the value of having educated citizens (McCormick, 2011). However, it has been noted that a large numbers of high school graduates are not adequately prepared for post-secondary education therefore showing the need for a good college readiness school curriculum (Center for College Readiness, 2015). SLIDE 3 Data supporting the argument Rigorous course work like IB and AP in high school better prepares students for post-secondary education.
I am incredibly grateful to have received this scholarship. I am currently on the way to graduate with my Early Childhood Education degree in the spring of 2018. It has been a bit of a rocky road for me in my college years; I support and live by myself, and the cost of paying my tuition has weighed heavily on my shoulders. By being selected to earn this scholarship, I can now focus more on my education instead of my financial issues that comes with paying tuition.
I am studying a Psychology degree and this field I have chosen really interests me because I have a passion for helping people. Generally, I am that type of person to put other's happiness and well-being before my own, because it makes me feel like I have a sense of purpose. Also, since I was a little girl I have always been so fascinated with the way people interact, behave, think and feel. I always asked 'why?' and I still do to this very day.
Being selected to be a candidate for membership in the Kenwood chapter of National Honor Society is a great honor for me. It means that I have achieved my goal of demonstrating my determination to be a part of something that appreciates and values students with exceptional qualities. I believe that I am able to become a valuable member of the NHS because I am hard working, reliable and I possess all the qualities required by this prestigious organization, such as scholarship, leadership, character, and service abilities. Over the years I have begun to realize that one of my best qualities is my determination.
My annotated bibliography consists of 4 sources related to the Child Development major. Child development degree programs appeal to students who wish to pursue careers that make a difference in the lives of children. Students learn everything about children's physical, emotional, social, and cognitive growth from infancy until adolescence, and how they develop within their surrounding social contexts. Students gain a clear understanding of social and behavioral sciences, the theories, major research findings, and research methods fundamental to the field of child development.
There a dozen of us stood, giddy with the feeling of accomplishment that we had passed and elated that we were done. As we received our certificate for completion of the certified nursing assistants course, we looked ahead to ponder what was going to be done with our new knowledge. We would never be together as a class again, but we would all have a special bond that would forever connect us. The course was just a start to what I had in mind for a later career, but I couldn’t imagine where I would be without it.
