BG As I walked into Kaolin Mushroom Farm, I was scared of the power I held within my hands. “It was time,” I thought, I’m was going to teach my first citizenship class. The supervisor and I had already printed the papers, bought the official flashcards, and prepared the powerpoint, yet I still could not shake the butterflies in my stomach. From the first moment I arrived, I never imagined the impact and success the program would achieve. An idea that started as an announcement on a whiteboard, turned into a two-night a week session that allowed immigrants access to free citizenship and English classes.
Hello Garth Webb,s first full graduating class of 2016 I’m Sebastian in case any of you forgot or still just didn 't know. Four years ago, I first entered Garth Webb; it seems like it has been just was just yesterday I wheeled into the school—did you guys get taller or is just me? I have thought long and hard about my journey and what I ought to say to you guys and while writing this I realized I still hate public speaking even more so this should be interesting, thanks Mrs. McLeod. I gotta be honest and say that I was pretty nervous about giving a speech; I kept thinking: What if I was like Taylor Swift and someone came up and interrupted like Kanye did back in 2009 but instead they said “Sorry I 'm gonna let you finish but someone
He couldn't write straight so he also started to write down every single word down on a sheet of paper to improve his writing skills. Within the days he spent at the library all he ever did was try to improve his writing. After all the rewriting the words from the dictionary It seems to be like now a days college is getting more and more stressful for students. Speaking as a college student myself it is difficult to work full time and come to school four times a week. Procastination is becoming a bigger issue in the education system.
In the semester prior I had some challenges in my english class. The challenges weren’t really bad, but the challenges were affecting my grade. For example, I would procrastinate on doing the notes for “To kill a Mockingbird”, over the christmas break. Also, I found it harder to do the notes by myself than it was with a partner. For that reason i believe I wasn’t able to complete the notes for “To Kill A Mockingbird.” Even though there were some challenges I still passed the semester final on “To Kill A Mockingbird,” with a solid B. I turned in all my work and had no missing assignments.
Good morning students and teachers. I honestly can't believe I've made it through my last year of schooling here at Southern Cross. Throughout my senior English studies, I have realised that individuality is something that is unfortunately lost amongst the trends and expectations of a developing society. Especially in regards to adolescents, I believe that it can be incredibly difficult to maintain a sense of independence and uniqueness in a society where everyone is expected to conform to the majority. Over the last two years, texts such as “The Kite Runner”, Shakespeare's “Othello”, Robert Frost's “Into My Own”, and the film “The Breakfast Club” have definitely inspired me to be myself and to stay true my own beliefs.
I combated with this challenge for the first semester of the year. I made numerous attempts to speak up in the classroom, but during my of these attempts, the class usually changed topics or someone already brought up my idea before I could speak. I attempted asking the only friend I have in the class to help open up the conversation for me, but that proved to be futile when many other students leaped at the opportunity when a new topic opens up. Every effort I made to get a spot in the debate did not work in my favor. At the end, I was left with only one option.
When I first started Unity high school I was nervous high school was going to be rough and hard to make friends but I 've been enjoying high school so far in freshman year. The biggest fear for me in high school was that there were going to be little bit of people to hang out with. This freshman year I have not joined any clubs but sophomore year I would consider joining clubs. This freshman year I don 't think I 've changed much from middle school but I have learned many things this year. When I had my first day at Unity High School I had a feeling that It was going to be rough for me and it would be hard to learn things but so far it 's been going well nothing has really changed from eighth grade.
Yes, yes indeed I had stage fright. I was a thirteen year old seventh grader going to Burton Middle School. I absolutely have a love for music, but I somewhat couldn’t express that publicly. That is why I chose choir as an elective, to see if the class can get me out my comfort zone and for the start of it….it was not going at all well. I was still somewhat the shy type.
When I picked out my classes last spring for junior year, I struggled immensely on whether or not to sign up for advanced placement language and composition. I already had signed up for four other advanced placement courses, so by no means would I have been slacking if I defaulted to enroll in honors English in lieu of advanced placement. In addition, writing does not come easily for me either; I feel like I am in a constant state of writers block. Grammar also has a way of tripping me up too. When I sat down to think about my goals for the year, and then on, my perspective evolved though.
There is always a group of students after graduation or even before graduation who cannot see their selves continuing school for another four years. Especially when they have alternative options some students in high school would spend most of their day at high school and after lunch, they spend their day at a trade school. During their time at a trade school, they get a further learning on skills that high schools do not provide. Skills in plumbing, automotive, cosmetology, fashion design, heating and cooling, and many more different jobs. Most parents stress that important it's getting into college after high school because degrees look good on your résumé, and it can get you further in your career.
