As the school year progressed I remember felling stress on how much work she would hang out. Many of my friends dropped her class due to the poor grades they would have. I was feeling lost I was used to having a lot of free time and that was all gone. She expected us to read three chapters each week with about twenty-page notes for each chapter. She would also give us homework every day not mentioning the quizzes and in class writing assignments.
One example of one important action that develops to reveal the theme is in the beginning of the story. For example, in one scene Carly decides she needs the Taker to be able to get a better grade on the SAT. One important quote from this scene is when the author writes, “for better or worse, I made up my mind” (62). This is important in helping to reveal the theme because Carly thinks she can not ace this test. Her parents and friends thinks she can because all school year she she has high grades and is a smart child.
Imagine that you have been trying something hard for so long and then finally just quit. I have always had ok grades here at Lowell Middle School. this year I started to go in the lower range of grades like D’s to C’s. But other years at lowell schools were not even close to years like this.
Some things changed, like I joined National Honors Society, cross country, and the fall musical but was unable to continue with basketball (yet still managed) and math team because I lost interest. I loved being the student who was super involved, taking all the challenging classes and being at the top of the class. My senior year, however, was lower than where I set myself up my first few years. After I tore my ACL in May of my junior year, I noticed that the rehabilitation process was going to be a long road that required a lot of time and effort to get back to full strength. I had to stop doing some activities in order to spend more time in the training room.
In the article “In praise of the F word” Mary Sherry discusses the “F” word, which means failure. When someone hears the word “failing” they tend to work hard.

Once I switched schools, I quickly fell behind. I missed my friends from my old school, and didn't make many friends at my new school. I struggled with the new skills we were learning and I had a hard time focusing in class. I couldn’t start and finish a book.
As a student in high school, life was dramatic and challenging. I was not ready to face huge changes during my freshmen year, and I often thought life was as easy as breezing through a straight tunnel. Then, I started seeing many gifted and talented students struggle and fall behind in high school, and I feared that I would be the next victim in line. Gradually, I learned step by step to grow and adjust to the changing environment, like a metamorphosis from a caterpillar to a butterfly. I became more determined to earn success in academics and athletics; most importantly, I found out who I am: a small girl with a big heart to change the world.
First Journal Entry The countdown to graduation has officially begun! A senior means I only have a few more courses to take. Of these courses, the field experience course is the one I have looked forward to since I declared my major because it is the pedagogy of my social work education. Last year, when school ended there was this nervousness and stress that was starting to consume me because of the unknown, this unknown was because I had no idea of where I would be doing my field placement.
This school year isn 't over yet but the seven months that I have been in the seventh grade I learned that nothing is more important than finishing your homework and getting all your assignments in. I also learned to never wait until the last second to do assignments. Seventh grade has been a great experience and a big challenge but I 'm glad I got to finish the year strong and confident. My first year at Sam Brannan has changed me into a very confident and athletic person.
I couldn’t accept my failure like him. I always wanted to excel in every exam that I take in my school and had positive attitudes to sit my next exams. Until, the end of last year when I made “one” silly mistake that changed my final exam result. My emotions started to jumble inside my head. Anger, regret and disappointment.
They simply expected me to do well in school. In third grade, I was consistently scoring perfect on my spelling tests, however, once I scored a measly 3/5 and my parents spent a whole hour yelling at me, telling me that I had to stop playing video games and read more books. Everyday, I feel the pressure radiating from my parents. This is similar to the narrator’s situation, he’s being pressured
I stopped doing my homework and studying for all my tests, I began to worry about boys and all the fun times my friends and I would have. I got suspended and asked to get sent to a anger management school to help me focus a bit more on myself, nobody would have expected that from
I observed for five hours at Westside Elementary School. Westside Elementary School is located on the edge of Sumner County. I observed a 5th grade elementary classroom. There was 9 boys and 13 girls, so there was a total of 22 students. The students were equal in gender.
1.) believe that I maintain the Four Pillars that National Honor Society is looking for in a student. I demonstrate Scholarship by getting good grades. Last year at the end of the 1st Semester, I had a 3.7 grade point average. During the 1st Semester, I was busy juggling The Musical, Drivers Ed, and Group Speech.
I will never forget my first fire drill! Setting: I am in a wheelchair. At that time I had a lot more strength than I do now so I used a manual wheelchair versus the electric one I use now. I actually didn’t spend much time in my wheelchair because so many of the games we played were on the floor.
