Through my relentless hard work and perseverance, I believe that I possess the four characteristics of a National Honor Society member- leadership, service, character, and scholarship. Acquiring leadership skills along with a strong character and the sense to serve others is vital. A leader should be resourceful, dependable, selfless, and a good problem solver. I have led in many ways- inside and outside of school. Last year as a tenth grader, I was class secretary for Class Council.
It is an honor for me to be invited to join such an exclusive society of distinguished people. I am excited about being part of the National Honor Society in view of the limitless opportunities and the strong support system it represents for me. I consider myself a scholar, by reason of the fact that I thrive to excel in my academics and accomplish my best in any achievable way. Through my years as a student I have worked on helping my classmates and my community in any way I possibly can. By offering equine therapy to participating in the climate reality project I have demonstrated leadership and service to my community.
Pausch received at the end of his lecture, it would be fair to conclude that it had a great impact on his audience. This lecture portrays how the effective use of basic presentation techniques can create a spellbinding effect on an audience. Dr. Pausch’s lecture gave me a new perspective on life and my career goals. One of his quotes that stood out for me was: “Wait long enough and people will surprise you”. I completely agree with this based on the experiences that I have had as a student at Michigan Tech.
Taking college credit during high school will save many people money and time in college. Choosing to take the challenging classes will keep seniors focused. Quote As previously stated seniors can get nervous for the upcoming year with college ahead. A quote from Cyr(2015) says, a person might feel comfortable where they are at in life, but if he or she doesn’t step out of the comfort zone, he or she may never know what is out in the world (Cyr, 2015). Getting ready and prepared for college is stepping out of a comfort zone.
Agreeing to Schuman you ought to connect a gathering venture where, indeed, a few people from the gathering are more brilliant than others. However, where the achievements of the whole class matter more than the individual. Schuman shares her personal experience of teaching and dealing with different kinds of students in hope that her intended audience will learn a lesson of the importance of class participation. Her views are very instructive, truthful, and encouraging to all college students. The article was elegantly well written by Schuman, who directed college student how to take part in the course and benefit from it.
He enrolled and completed his undergraduate degree while employed full time at SAAF. He is well-trained, ambitious, open-minded, and humble. He brings with him real world experience, that I believe will be of great support to himself and his peers throughout the duration of the program. In knowing what I know about the environment, methods, and services at Arizona State University, I believe this site and program are a perfect fit for Abraham, but also believe he will be successful wherever he ends up attending graduate school. He will be a committed student and a proficient
In the last 6 weeks, I was playing a group leader role in the DTESB project and learned quite a lot from both the project process and the TOUR 7040 lectures. Currently, I would like to reflect the study of emotional intelligence (EQ). Using emotion to achieve goals is quite easy to be understand but not easy to be done during the cooperation. Personally, I am a straightforward girl with a short temper. And the perfect teamwork in my mind is that all team members could work together with a smooth communication and a high implementation.
Over the weekend I interviewed a Platteville RA (Resident Assistant), because they generally have good advice to incoming classes. RA’s deal with any problem on their wing or the whole building when on call. Zach Hahn is the RA on the eastside of Southwest Hall on floor three. Scheduling an interview with this popular man was challenging, although the interview was brief he shared some valuable information. Incoming freshman should know what happens when a student must be written up, why the first month of school is the busiest time, and lastly what is the best part about being a RA.
To assure it is sustainable, we have trademarked the project, worked with community leaders in Charlotte for funding, construction assistance and shipping. While ContainIt continues to help others, it has left an indelible mark on each of us involved. Not only is ContainIt transforming the community of Pine Ride, but it has opened the hearts and minds of students, who are now committed to participating in positive and lasting change for a lifetime. I enter college more confident in my abilities and look forward to Appalachian State University to afford me unique opportunities to continue discover how my talents and interests may intersect with service to others. I look forward to the opportunity to be an active member of a University that embraces the same mind and spirit of Covenant Day, a community that fosters academics and conscience.
Engagement 50/50 Explanation of Engagement: This score refers to my efforts that I put in and the success that I had engaging with the student. It is very important, in a one on one, for the student to feel as though the teacher that they are with actually cares about what they are doing. Explanation of My Grade: No matter what the situation was or how bad my day was going, or how bad it seemed like my week was going to be, I was proud of myself and my commitment to fully engaging with the students. It was incredibly rewarding to stay engaged with them. They kept my mind off of the things that were bothering me and worrying me.
Serving in this capacity she has exhibited great drive, developing and administering a bevy of initiatives such as the SMARTS faculty/ staff mentoring program, Project Finish Line, and Early Alert Intervention. Her efforts have yielded positive results such as a nearly 90% fall-to-spring mentee persistence rate with the SMARTS program and the reclamation and graduation of several students via Project Finish Line. Cynthia Calhoun’s presence is a fixture at the Student Welcome Center which assists thousands of students as they are attempting to navigate through the uncertainties of a new term. On a personal note I have found Cynthia to be very cordial and compassionate. She has always had an open door policy, welcoming my company and has been an overflowing well of information.
I also loved how the courses challenged me to think critically and exceed beyond my regular realm of thinking. The professors were very helpful and would stay after to tutor because they want you to succeed. I cannot express how much I needed to go to a larger, four year school, and how James Madison University was the perfect school for me to become more knowledgeable and invigorated. My freshman year was exhilarating,
It was through my PowerPoints, office hours, and talks with my students that I came to share my experiences with them, and help them settle into college. Furthermore, the Peer Advisor community helped demonstrate our concern for our students through our numerous activities that we planned outside of the classroom. The Peer Advisors organized many outings for our students. This time with them allowed us to connect on a more personal basis, and allow us to talk to them about their college transition. Being a Peer Advisor has been so rewarding in that it has allowed me to care and concern for these students as they settle into their journey at
I don’t know what to expect at school this year, but I hope that it won’t have too much of an impact on me. 4. Why are you interested in becoming a delegate in the LCM diplomatic program? I am interested in joining LCM because I attended the one-week summer program and think that I would find it fun and engaging to attend the year-round program. At school, I rarely felt challenged and I would enjoy being in a program that makes me think about real-world situations in a way that will help me later in life.
From going to this program, I realized why I wanted to Claflin University because there is a plethora of talent and culture that engulfs the University. Lastly, the alumni, board, authority figures and students are all invited to attend to celebrate the years and history Claflin has built and continues to build with the students that keep attending the University. From attending the 147th Founders Day Convocation, people described it as boring and mundane to attend. However, as the program progressed, it is obvious that the program is far from being mundane. The first part of the
