Throughout high school I have tried to take classes that were not only challenging, but would also be relevant to my future. I have taken nine AP level classes since sophomore year, and I have thrived in the difficult coursework that is meant to be college level. So far, I have proven my hard work and dedication by passing all of the AP tests thus far. I have also taken advantage of the advanced math coursework that is two years ahead than normal. I began this track since the fifth grade, and I continued and progressed all these year.
During my last three years of college career, I have encountered not exactly the same but few similar questions about evaluating myself. Though I know what I am capable of more than anybody else, it is not easy to judge myself where I stand. In 2012, I came from Ethiopia right out of high school, and by the time I arrived in the US, my English writing and speaking skills were very poor. I came here to attend a college, so I studied English grammar, writing and reading books for one full month and I took the non-native placement test at Montgomery College. Surprisingly, my efforts paid off, I was accepted to take credit classes and I began attending college after another month.
I am Esteban Rogelio Reyes, and I’m in the ninth grade. About a few weeks ago you came and visited Rancho Mirage High School and gave us copies of your book, Autodidactic. That book really changed what I think about education, learning and taking responsibility into my own hands. After reading your book, I thought about who I am, my struggles and my accomplishments. I think one of the very few accomplishments I’ve made in my life include getting a perfect score of 600 on the California State Test in English or Math (I can’t remember) in fifth grade.

Who is Jennifer Kirby? I graduated from Bowling Green State University of Ohio with a Bachelors of Science in Education. I began my teaching career in Lakewood, Washington initially teaching junior high math before the district converted our school to a middle school and I became one of the 6th grade Math and Science teachers. After two short military moves, I taught 6th grade Math and Social Studies in the Fort Bragg community. In Louisiana, I worked mornings as the intervention specialist for Reading and Math at the public middle elementary school (3rd and 4th) while teaching 7 and 8th grade Math in the afternoons at the local private school and eventually covering the art classes when the teacher was on maturity leave.
In one way or another, we are all outliers. We each have a different set of skills which make us unique. Some people’s skill have made them successful in life while everyone else struggles to achieve success. Alas, being successful in life is not a simple task. It takes practice, teamwork, and many other factors.
Many people believe that success is based on a certain skill or maybe even just luck. In the outliers by malcolm gladwell, Malcolm discusses the theories that there are certain things that affect the success of someone in the long run. I happen to agree with Malcolm on the topic of that everything with success is calculated. It might seem that a person might have long term success because of coincidence, I do not believe that is true. Short term success can be influenced by a luck but long term success implies a lot more.
5 years had passed since the whole Jessica Feeney thing. We 've elected a new (real) president, I 've become better friends with Courtney, and I 'm finishing my last year at high school. I plan on going to college to be a general surgeon despite hearing all those stories from Jeff. Jeff was liar right? I mean, now that I 've finished 4 years of grueling high school I know the smart people words for what Jeff and my 7th grade class did to Jessica.
Overall, my goals for this semester are overcoming my bad habits and learning about how to be a better presenter. My public speaking experience would most likely considered average to most high school students. During many of my classes I have been required to present, from presenting book reports to presenting research papers. My school schedules a seminar during 5th hour; this hour was set aside to help improve students reading rates. My
And others have degraded my literacy development long-term. It was my final year of junior high school in the eight grade. I was one of the few participants in the last of the two spelling bees of the school year. “Participants please take your seats” the Principal said, eagerly looking
