my teachers started to tell me that I need to pull up, or I wasn’t going to graduate 8th grade. So, during my last few weeks, like five, to like, 6, I buckled down and got everything I needed to get done, done. All my homework, all my other assignments, you name it from my class, I got it done. So, when I
Yes, I have been through some very grueling times, like when I had a 58 in science after being absent for just two days! When I was presented with that problem, I studied very diligently, I re-watched all of my platitudinous lectures over and over again. I was determined to bring my grade up. I spent abounding hours (which felt like days) studying, improving my skills and working to come out on top. Finally, all my hard work got me to where I wanted to be.
Homework has been the bane of many a students existence for the past years, as countless think it’s unimportant. Restless nights of practicing equations and writing paragraphs are known by all children, especially within high school. Contrary to belief, homework benefits the average student so much more than people care to acknowledge. It conditions the minds of our children to think independently and become familiar with the knowledge they’ve gained. Grueling nights of completing page after page of homework only ready you for upcoming school work, much like in the words of Malcolm X, “The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.” The war on homework has been going on for quite some time, originally being upscaled in America during 1950’s to keep up with communist nations.
So that was kind of how the daily routine went for all of elementary. Every day after school we sat down together and worked on the school work that would always be giving me trouble whether it was a spelling test or some math homework. Most conversations went like “Your brother Erik can do it just fine, why can't you?” or “Everyone else in class understands this just fine, so that means you aren’t trying enough.” Eventually things started to click it started slowly at first like “Wow Isaac you did ok on this spelling bee.” my mother would say or “You did most of this homework by yourself?” I gradually became independent enough to do work on my own and only with occasional help from my mother or Erik my brother. Finally about the time I started middle school my mother's expectations didn’t go lower it was that I was able to meet them easier. So now when it seems like my mom doesn't expect much it’s because we share the same expectations for me to be responsible and successful and it's not something that needs a constant reminder or outside help, because they match my own
I don 't know if you would remember me or not but I had my INT 101 with you my first semester. It was Understanding Self and Others and we discussed race, ethnicity, and segregation nearly every class and we had to write journals discussing these topics. The reason I decided to email you is because I 've thought a lot about those journals I wrote. I remember that I was constantly arguing that people should get over the past and we should just ignore the past in order to heal and realize now that I was ignorant. I had no right to tell anyone to just get over the past because it 's already happened.
This same problem followed me into high school. I was always striving to make my notes absolute perfection. Not wanting a single stray pencil mark or any pen bleeding through the paper. Now that I am in college I realize I have turned my problem into something useful. I take notes in class in pen, and then after class I go back through and edit them.
Every teacher voted on this award and they chose me. I made my way to the isle, while all my friends wished their congratulations or patted me on the back, and then stiffly walked up to the podium. Although I did not realize it at that moment, I entered a new part of my life with accepting the citizenship award. Throughout middle school, I had been a more reserved student and individual. I took a few advanced courses with mostly standard ones, participated in a
High school was always a challenge for me, it was really tough to make it through. I made a lot of mistakes in highschool and learned from them. At the beginning of high school it started off great I was passing all of my classes, doing the best I could possibly be doing. I remember making great friends, having good peers, and having people to reach out to if I needed them. I had a really great friend named Emalie she was always the one I could rely on.
Since the day I was born, my parents knew I was a thinker. With my first breaths of life, I silently observed the room with a meticulous eye, not letting out signal shriek. Growing up, I was incredibly passionate for math and science. Often, I added the numbers in my soup, counted the clouds in the sky, and bombarded adults with numerous questions about the Earth and the universe. School was a great influence in my life, and I couldn't spend a single moment not reflecting on my future.
