The junior students at my school rely on student mentors for support in their individual growth. As a mentor, I develop weekly lesson plans to engage grade 8 students in their transition to high school. Supporting these students and providing guidance in their academic and personal life is what I am there for. These grade 8 students need senior students who will encourage and ensure that they will be fine in high school because they can form connections as students. I only had personal connections with two senior students when I entered grade 8, and they were both family members.
High school and jr.high athletics are very beneficial to every student that is involved with them.

Throughout the years I realized that this rules involved always being good to others, our parents since we were little kids they were teaching us that helping others and being kind was the behavior we were always supposed to follow.

Although, at the end of the day kids must be self motivated. Mentors and other relationships can influence a child’s choice, but they must decide themselves if it is worth it or not. Experiencing extreme poverty and violence can be the right amount of motivation for a child to lead a better life. Homeless students may also be motivated by success stories such as the, “100 Long Island students who were granted scholarships by the Family and Children 's Association (Amon).” Influences and powerful stories can impact a child’s success, but only the child can decide to be
Personal Essay I am the second oldest in my foster family, but I lived with my foster grandma. Whenever she needs a fast babysitter she usually asks me to do it and I never have her pay me for doing it.
