It paid off. Aunt Von became a doctor and owned a practice while dad became a successful engineer. Papa’s lack of institutional education influenced my parents to make education my sole priority which I soon appreciated their diligence. I’ve been blessed to be able to retain information well except for math. Math was the subject where I had to study more than my other classes and nothing really clicked.
Throughout my whole high school years, I had someone to motivate me. I wanted better for myself. I knew If I did the right things, good things would come to me. I like the finer things in life and I plan to have them. I go to school and work to have a better future.
For example I would always get on this teacher’s nerves and make them angry and I would feel like because of that sometimes the teacher would single me out for things that I felt I didn’t need to be singled out o. In the end I decided that the best thing I could do for myself and my teacher was just put the past behind me and start trying to do my best and just get over the past because school was more important than what the teacher thought of
Since I am the oldest child, I’ve always had to send a good message to my younger siblings and take responsibility for my actions when I didn’t. No one can have perfect character, it is impossible because everyone makes mistakes. I have shown responsibility by doing what 's right even though there might be consequences. When I make a mistake, I feel very bad and try to make up for it by making sure the work is perfect. I am always honest even though I know I could alway take the easy way out by cheating or lying.
I also liked the beginning when he started to guide Jodi, because the arguing with Jodi’s dad and him trying to get better at it. But I didn’t like the parts of the story when he was at school, because it was just boring and not interesting. Another thing I didn’t like was why Mig Russell and Lee Young felt that they needed him for lock picking, because they were already criminals and I felt that they never needed a lock picker so why
“ ISFP’s are sensitive to others’ feelings and value harmony.” In my friend group I have been called the mother of the group because I always try to make them feel better and are happy. This also applies to my family, like my siblings and cousins. I also am not a fan of conflict and I always try to end it. One conflict that I remember was actually between my sister and cousin.
In the end, Neil took his own life because he was so hurt and tired of the pressure he was under from his parents. Parent pressure can be so much stress on a child and it obviously affected Neil so much that he did what he did. “You know what my dad called me when I was growing up? Five ninety-eight. That’s what all the chemicals in the human body would be worth if you bottled them raw and sold them.
Coming to the US for most people, was the best thing to ever happen in their lives. It was the same for me. Until a time in my life slightly changed that, but I still think it profited me and helped me grow tremendously. On my first day in middle, I was so nervous to meet new people that I did not really talk much to people the first couple of weeks. One-day as I was sitting in class doing my work I saw someone look at me
I believe that the lack of technology made us not take the small things in life for granted. I learned what a hard day 's work was, and I can 't say it hurt me. I did struggle in high school with computers until I prayed and asked for understanding and wisdom to help me in my lacking areas.
“Mom, I am so glad you didn’t have any other kids because I like getting everything I want,” I said to my mom when I was about 7 years old. In this moment, my mom and I both realized that there needed to be a change in how we considered my childhood outcome. My family taught me to be the best person I can be, and how much I need to show I care to the people I am surrounded by. They always told me to be selfless and patient, and being an only child held me to a lot of stereotypes that I did not possess. Only children are seen by others as selfish, spoiled, and privileged, but my family knew that would not be the case with me.
Teachers The teachers liked at the beginning of the year and the ones I like now are totally different. Mr. Gronewold I’ve always been close with because of being a wrestling manager. Mr. Belkin I thought I would be his favorite because he is really close with my brother and I’ve known him since kindergarten. Mr. Knights I hated at the beginning of the year, but I realized he wasn’t that bad.
Wayne and Kelly have engaged well during the contact times and have missed no contact sessions. Wayne and Kelly usually arrive for contact well before the scheduled time. They also ensure they feed children during contact hours. Additionally, they interact well with the children and use praise while talking to the children. Although the parents use praise when talking to the children, I feel there is a lack of explanation on why they are being praised.
Mr.Prokes understood me. He knew what i wanted to do with my life, when I wanted to do it and how I was gonna do it. I never would 've thought that I would leave him the first year I met him. All though, he emailed my mother saying: "Dear Jeri Johnson, Your son this year had a rough year. Myself and Mr.Pargaen tried to make it better, but this class needs serious help.
I was the golden kid who got straight A’s and didn 't go to my neighborhood school so when they saw this F was a slap in their face. My mom seemed pretty mad at me, but my dad surprised me. He said he was the brightest kid growing up so when he’s happy that I turned out so smart, but sometimes I have taken my failures as reminders that i 'm still human and not a piece of machinery.
Carol Dweck describes fixed mind-set as a student believing their successes and failures reflect how smart they are. While growth mind-set describes a student looking at their successes and failures as an opportunity to learn new abilities and skills. Carol Dweck means fixed mind-set does not look at the effort a student puts in to an assignment, but only the grade they receive. Growth mind-set does focus on the effort a student puts into an assignment. Student’s either have fixed or growth mind-set and this can significantly help or hurt their self esteem.
