Teachers are aware some students require more time and undivided attention; as a result they provide their time to students who really want to accomplish their goals. I signed her up, and advised her of the benefits of attending. She seemed pleased and happy to know the school counselors are available and pushing her to succeed. Another interesting event that occurred is Mr. Colaio, knew the principal Ms. Gallardo of Bronxwood Preparatory Academy.
Today, we are gathered here to remember and celebrate the life of a dearly loved friend, neighbor, lawyer, and most importantly father. Atticus Finch was loved by many. From a young age, my father taught me, not only simple things such as right and wrong, but life long lessons. As a young girl, I didn’t always realize what he was doing but he managed to sneak in a lesson in just about everything we did. I used to think Atticus was the an epitome of absolutely everything I thought was a perfect father, I now know that he was in fact.
I have been shown how to work with others, how to put my pride aside, how to lead as well as follow, when to speak and when to listen, the importance of open communication, pay attention to detail, and to many other skills too comfortably list. What I want to do with my life is to teach. Mr. Gilreath and his band had such a positive impact on my life. I aspire to be what he was to me and the rest of his students, a fatherly figure who we could openly talk to and help us through our lives. Mr. Gilreath created a family for us band geeks and we loved being able to make music with a man that truly cared about us and what we did with our music.
My experiences helping immigrant’s students was very rewarding for me because I could connect with the students and understand what they were going through. I will definitely continue to help as a peer tutor for next semester and I will recommend some of my friends to volunteer there too. Also I hope that my contributions to them, helped them achieve their goals and to be
I am polite, humble, and respectful to others. I have a passion for helping others and making their life better. For that reason, I decided to become a Marauder Ambassador. By being an ambassador, I introduce freshmen and new students to the school campus. When I started school in the United States, an ambassador welcomed me and familiarized me with the school; therefore, I became a Marauder Ambassador to give back and serve the community that welcomed me when I came here.
The BSA was an experience that transformed me and I strive to encourage any and all to be a part of it. The second experience that has impacted my life is simply my drive to get good grades. In the past I 've always kept good grades in my classes and finished things neatly and on time. Over the years I have pursued and actively tried
Trey has a very special place in my heart, for I have been spending time with him every day helping him with tasks. I have seen the good times and the bad times he experiences as well as seeing him grow and learn new things. By showing kindness to him, I have felt that kindness has become contagious, making me want to show kindness to other special need kids in the Fairview community. After showing kindness to Trey, I was inspired to volunteered to be a mentor for a freshman boy in High School who has Down Syndrome. His name is Cullen, and I have gotten the opportunity to help this amazing young man adjust to the High School.
Moreover, I applied the same strategies when teaching in the classroom by building relationships and making sure my students knew that I cared about them both as my student as well as a person, provide visuals, graphic organizers and other strategies, making the task of learning and remembering fun, and having a sense of humor. A deep
McCandless and Westerberg 's relationship began when, as an act of kindness, Westerberg decided to employ the young man. This soon evolved to be something more than a employer-employee relationship. Initially, Westerberg wanted to help McCandless and "take the kid under his wing," as it is mentioned on page 14. As time passed by, McCandless proved to be a hard and ethical worker which made Westerberg respect and even admire him. Westerberg is a very observant man and he appreciated all the good qualities he was able to see in Alex.
“Amazima,” or “truth” in the Luganda language is the name of the non-profit organization Katie Davis established in 2008. The establishment’s main goal is to meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of the people of Uganda (Amazima Ministries). The people that Amazima helps have endured the loss of their children due to malnutrition and starvation as well as living in extreme states of poverty. The program provides nutritious food, medical care, Bible study, and general health training to those in the Masese, Uganda. The thriving organization all began when a young student decided to leave behind all that she knew to follow what she believed to be her path led by God.
The passage I chose takes place during Magawisca’s trial. Towards the end of the trial, she tells Governor Winthrop she would rather be sentenced to death right away than placed back in the cell. To some this can be seen as Magawisca being weak. The text says she spoke with a sense of impatience for the first time. To me it shows that she is simply tired of being strong and she needs someone to come to her rescue.
