In the 9th grade, my grades dropped significantly. Practices with the academy was 45 minutes away. I had to carpool with other team mates, leaving school 30 minutes after it was done, and not coming home until aroun 9:00pm. This schedule repeated itself Monday through Thursday. Since being diagnoised with Osgood-Schlatters, I began to be extremely passionate about pursuing a career as an orthopedic surgeon. After the season ended, I did not return to the Railhawks Academy. I instead played for my schools varsity team and have been ever since. Although my grades took a massive hit, I am determined to raise my grades. I am entering my senior year more determined then ever to get all “A’s”. While most of my colleagues chose an “easy class schedule, I will be taking AP Biology, AP Chemistry, and AP Psychology in order to be ahead in college. I no longer see failure as a set back. In fact, I love to fail. I love it, because without failure, how can I
I think that we should keep the 8th grade graduations. Graduation for the 8th grade is a big milestone in teens lives, because it means they 're going to high school. I think that it also lets people get the chance to expand a skill of theirs like (for me) art, since they can get awards for things like that, and a few other things.

In High School, there 's a strict lesson plan that schools follow when it comes to learning math or any other subjects. High School teaches their student all different types of history, math and a wider range of English and science classes. The question is, how do kids use these different type of course that they’re being placed in later on in their future? High School is where teenagers learn how to become responsible young adults, teaching high school students how to calculate income tax, manage their income, maintaining good credit, and other essential life skills. Instilling these lessons helps navigate them into the real world post high school. High School teachers should include important life lessons/methods for teens to survive life after high school. The reason is, in high school students are learning how to become young women and men and knowing how ways on how to go about doing income taxes, managing their funds, and other critical skills that come with being an adult. Adding life lessons in a schools curriculum is helping students become responsible and also teaching them accountability.
I graduated from high school in 2013, and attended James Madison University from August 2013 to December 2014. I began having health problems during the 2014 fall semester and when the semester ended I withdrew from the classes I had taken and returned home on a medical leave of absence. When I returned home, I spent the spring semester focusing on my health so that I would be able to get better and return to JMU. After taking the spring semester off, I decided to work at a landscaping company to help give me something to focus on again. When that went smoothly, I signed up for one summer class at my local community college. I enjoyed being able to take a class again, and received an “A”. I knew I was ready to continue pursuing my degree, but wanted to remain close to home while I continued to recover
Figure skating plays an important role in shaping my character and building skills for the future. Being able to perform gravity-defying jumps and spins on a thin blade requires more than just talent—it involves dedication and perseverance when in the face of adversity. As an athlete, I interpreted the saying “practice makes perfect” as pushing past my limits and training for several hours. Unfortunately, I ended up injured because I was pushing myself too hard and not resting.
I was never truly an avid reader when I was younger. I was the oldest of five siblings and left in charge of taking care of my younger brothers and sister. I was more prone to spending time outside than reading a book. Of course, I did find myself enjoying a good mystery novel, but playing ball would always trump even a good book. All through school, I would find myself actively participating in one sport to another. I loved being active and thinking only of what I wanted to do. Life has a way of becoming a reality. The choices I made during my younger years have followed me to my current years. The busyness of work, family, and children have restricted my own freedom of time. Reading has become my favorite way of personal freedom without having to leave home. My favorite author at this present time is Beth Moore. She meticulously portrays God’s word and opened my eyes to the strength and power of God’s word for me today. God created me and has a specific purpose for me to fulfill. In order to begin this process, I need to accept and believe in
My grade in this class last semester was a C and it wasn’t sufficient. If I had done my work correctly, on time, and complete I know I could’ve got a better grade. Doing a sport is what made my semester difficult, I didn’t use my time wisely and have a schedule set for school and playing a sport. I could’ve stayed after school or stayed in from lunch to help me catch up on my work, but instead I decided to go out to lunch and spend time with my friends. If i truly wanted a better grade and GPA i would’ve shown how much i wanted it by giving more effort. This semester, I would like to start over new so I can try harder to attain a better GPA and a good grade in this class. I do plan on trying out for a softball this semester and if I do make it on the team I
Throughout my life school always came easy to me. Once high school started that changed quickly. I never once studied for anything and here I am junior year doing homework and studying for at least 4 hours a day. It has paid off though because I've maintained all A's and B's with a weighted GPA of 95.9. It was a hard change and took a while to adapt to go from easy middle school classes to college courses freshman year. Since I'm in the Allied Health and Medical Sciences field, I have taken some college courses such as Dynamics of Healthcare 1 and 2, History of the United States, Biology and Medical
Most high school athletes across America share one common aspiration: play their sport at the next level in college. For a select number of fortunate athletes, that dream becomes a reality when they commit to a school and sign their letter of intent. But are they really fortunate? College athletics are oftentimes not as glamorous as one would think. The transition to college is not a walk in the park, but add a rigorous summer conditioning program, two-a-days everyday, and the pressures of coaches you have yet to impress, and you have a recipe for disaster. What Made Maddy Run by Kate Fagan shows just that.
The NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) had total revenue of nearly $1 billion during its 2014 fiscal year, according to an audited financial statement. Over the past decades, the popularity in America for college athletics has grown exponentially. Therefore, the amount of money colleges make from college sports can be immensely lucrative. The debate is college athletes receive athletic scholarships but should they be compensated beyond that. As wealth continues to rise for the NCAA, college athletes should be compensated with pay or salary. Some of the reasons college athletes should be compensated include: they put themselves in a difficult position for the future, hold down a full time job and help generate abundance amounts of revenue for the NCAA.
Children have strived for years to make their parents, teachers and coaches proud of them. Kids have come to practice Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday, and Friday to get better, while their academics are suffering. Students have pushed their bodies to the limits, causing extreme injury that will hold them back from sports in the future. Student athletes are not getting the opportunity to play multiple sports during the year, because they are expected to spelize in one sport and focus on it year round, leaving no opportunity to play other sports or do other activities. Youth sports are becoming too intense for young children to keep up with.
up with your classes? If so follow these key steps to stay in college, and continue playing the sport you have chosen. Most student athletes have a wide variety of options when there in college. Most athletes in college chose to take one to two years of college before they go pro. My program would require student-athletes to stay in school until after their junior year of college. So their knowledge would further developed when going to play professional sports, and being in the real world. This would more then likely keep young adults interested in there academic excellence rather then doing two years, and leaving to get the big time money when going professional in most sports. This would be an academic program set up by the college to help these athletes by managing money, and would urge the students to stay in school for one more year. The NCAA has a program like this, but I think they should consider allowing student- athletes to get paid for their sport that their in. What I mean by this is allowing the athletes to
Who is Timothy Lucious? I tend to ask myself the same question of “Who am I”? At this present day I come to realize that I am a lot of things in this world today. I live by a certain rules in my life: that God comes first in everything I do, Family is the most important thing to me, and Football is my passion and First love. I am a person who loves football, it has been my love and passion ever since I was a child. It has been my go to place when things got rough as I was older, to where I can just play a game or practice to take my mind off of things. I am a young adult, who has lost his mother as a child, and whose father was never in his life. I have a large family and I love each and every one of them, even if there are some who tend to
High school grows you into the person you are. I have great memories, good and bad, some learning experiences and some that I’ll take with me the rest of my life. My high school experience has influenced my development as a person inside and outside of the class by making me more independent, choosing friends wisely and teachers motivating me to attend college and accomplish goals I have set for myself.
