“Don’t be nervous.” This was the last thing my mom said to me before I entered my first audition for a ballet summer intensive. I was eleven. I did ok and I ended up getting in but like always there were things to improve on. Little did I know then that the teachers are always looking for three things; technique, confidence, and artistry. The audition was for Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory.

Kimorah is a second-grade general education student from a school in the St. George area of Staten Island, New York. Upon having Kimorah assigned as my student and before meeting her, I learned that through prior assessments it is established that she is on a C reading level, and in the second grade. When I think of second graders, I think of babies that were just born into this world a couple years ago, but among meeting Kimorah I quickly realized that she is a person in every sense of the word. Kimorah is a 7-year-old extroverted girl, who is expressive and full of personality. Consequently, shyness does not affect her, but to break the ice further I decided to conduct a set of fun activities.
People could only imagine knowing Miss Soar on a personal level, yet here I was about to spend a full two weeks by her side in a classroom. Although I knew of Miss Soar, we never had a conversation, but that would soon change. Sitting at my study writing a shopping list my mother had asked for when I heard the doorbell ring followed by a brief conversation. It was Miss Soar! At dinner later that night my mother broke the new, “Honey, Miss Soar has requested your help at her camp this summer.” she said.

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. In the narrative Laura helps us understand what her point was by talking about her emotions.
I was in 4rd grade and I have never been to Mexico before. My mother decided to take me there for about two weeks to visit my family there and my grandparents, but during that time I was still attending school so the teacher just gave me two weeks of school work to make up when I get back. I got home and my mother was already packing up, so I went to pack my stuff and picked out my favorite clothes to wear. Once I was done, I went to sleep, mother awakened me up at 3am to get ready to leave to the airport. After a very long wait in lines at the airport, we were finally boarded on the plane.
My mother and I returned to Seattle when I was six months old. My mom and I moved in with my grandmother for a number of years. Though I didn’t realize it until I was a little older, I watched my mom balance her schedule between two to three jobs and going to school. My mother wanted to have a better life and future not only for me but herself as well. This strong determination led her to put me in private school instead of public school.
In some parts of the United States, in order for a college student to receive a prescription to treat ADHD, he or she must endure two months of testing and paperwork. Student Lisa Beach “had to sign a formal contract - promising to submit to drug testing, to see a mental health professional every month and to not share the pills.” This amount of commitment did turn off some of her “peers from using the student health office to obtain” the medications. Schools such as University of Alabama, Marist College, and Fresno State “require students to sign contracts promising not to misuse pills or share them with classmates.” Other schools refer students to off-campus providers to make a proper ADHD diagnosis instead like George Mason and William & Mary. Although students may think that these requirements are making it hard to get treatment, it is hampering the abuse of Adderall. Duke University addressed the misuse of Adderall as declaring it as academic dishonesty, essentially cheating.

What did she say” I ask, “She said that you got the babysitting job!” said my mom. “Yay “ I scream jumping up and downing. “For how long did she say I will get to stay there and when do I leave” I asked “She said she will need help for the whole summer so you will leave right away when school ends” answered mom That summer changed me into a better person.
Then I started thinking, “What if I started a cupstacking club in my old school?” So I decide to talk with elementary teachers over the summer to see if I can get a sponsor.
