There has always been more positive people to motivate me whenever I needed inspiration. Throughout my childhood, the idea of having a college education was importantly emphasized. As a result, it was my responsibility to be the first generational child to excel in my studies and achieve a life of good fortune and accomplishments. In the beginning, I found the stress of having further education to be a great weak point, but as I grew older, I began to realize the many rewards I have gained by having the skill to be literate. Learning to read and write became the basis of my development.
My choice of the best college fit for me is very related to my interest in math. I want to go to college to specialize in math. There are many types of colleges to attend. In my case I want attend a selective college, because, not wanting to show myself off, I 'm a very smart guy; I was in the top fifteen best students in my school. Going to a selective college will help me to achieve my goals and the interests I have.
The biggest headaches I get are from those students who have no training and no experience—yet they’re certain they have a divine gift or instinct for executive protection. These students are trainable, but they might have to repeat the class after some field experience to really understand what is new and different about this discipline. Repeating my classes is always free, and some lessons are much more real to students the second time around. I have a great track record with the quality of students who have come through my school. Nearly all are motivated to help others.
She’s got high goals that people can only dream of accomplishing. She’s not as outspoken as others, yet her dreams and goals speak louder than words. Her education is highly average and has a surprising interest for math. She’s always ahead of the game making every point towards her education count. Many people whom don’t know her as well think of her as an average student attending Sylmar High School.
Every time I failed, I became an emotional wreck because the idea of “failure” had always been foreign to me when I pursued things I cared about. With perfection as my goal, making mistakes were emotionally and mentally draining, and, it was clear, that making mistakes was inevitable. Early in my junior year, I received a 23%
I found inspiration and internal motivation to continue the battle by observing my industrious and diligent parents. After much effort invested, this course soon became my favorite academic subject but I still had to conquer many challenges ahead. Being the only Latino student, I often felt profiled and excluded
Although I was able to pass the class, and the passing grade on my AP test meant I got my grade boosted to an ‘A’ automatically, the failure I felt in the first couple of months was unlike anything I had experienced at that point. If I had not been desperate to find a better way to study, I wouldn’t have discovered that music soundtrack, and I might never have discovered Sierra Boggess and her powerful quotes. Even though I wasn’t happy at the time with my abysmal test and quiz scores, I’m glad I was able to learn this lesson that I am already enough, as it has changed my entire outlook on life so much. Now the next time I’m disappointed with a test score, or angry with myself for messing something up, I will be able to remind myself that I am always
Using the examples to learn about math and understand how it will guide us to a bright future, Cindy Dolnaldson persuaded us into believing that no matter what the situation is math matters. Math is mandatory in life and is appealing to us. Some students belive that just because math is hard they should give up. Math will lead us to many great goals and
Overall I was a good student in elementary, but I had many flaws and I still do. To begin with I was a hard working student even though I was horrible in math and reading. If people would describe me they would say was very shy in fact I rarely talked. I wasn't like the rest of my classmates, they would play sports every year and I only was in cross country for 3 years and played baseball for 1 year. I was practically a chill and shy boy.
In my experience, what Martin Luther King Jr. calls “thinking intensively and critically” is very different from what my high school teachers called “critical thinking”, most especially by the way Dr. King links intelligence and learning to the development of character, that is, growth as a person. Too often in my past, teachers mentioned critical thinking only as a mental activity of seeing through stereotypes, evaluating both sides of issues and understanding and accepting differences. As worthwhile as these are, I have found that high level thinking without having a more enlightened character is simply inadequate. That was a recent, very positive experience with two very nice people of different faiths. As much as we had been taught in class about prejudice, the recent terrorists attacks across the world bred a good deal of ill-will in
Returning back to college as a nontraditional student has been a rewarding experience at Appalachian State University Distance Education. The vast knowledge and expertise of the online professors are only multiplied by their demonstration of care for the education of their students. However, that winning streak was recently broken by Colleen Tarantino-Utter. Based on the experiences from my current academic pursuits and even after earning an “A” in the class, I was left with the perception that Ms. Utter portrayed the characteristics of an unequivocally incompetent and incredibly arrogant instructor. First, exemplified by her failure to correctly word exam questions demonstrated her fundamental miscarriages for the comprehension of the correct
This was one of the happiest days of my life because I knew in the future I would reflect back on my experience and think to myself I made it this far with so many complications that I know I can overcome anything life would throw at me. Although I did not graduate with honor society or one of the highest grades I still have the satisfaction of having my diploma and knowing I overcame all my failures in middle school. I’m proud to say thank you to my teacher who never let me down and always told me I can do it because of her I showed her my effort was more than
Joy is influential to Wes because she knew that Wes had the ability to learn and to be intelligent, she just needed Wes to push himself to be intrigued in school like how he was in music or outside activities. As Joy tried to get Wes’s grades up she finally came up with a plan to send him to military school. “Wes, you are not going anywhere till you
psychology would be my most challenging. All though it my favorite subject it’s not an easy class. I have a really hard time with the terms used in psychology. I got a D on my first text which was very depressing, but now I know what to expect and I now know what kind of notes I should be taking. My goal is to get a B in that class and I am very confident I can achieve that.
