From a freshman to a senior I grew a lot because in freshman and sophomore years I had always touched that I had to more years then I could catch up all of my credit so I could be able to graduate. But that did happen because in freshman I was a really social person and my grades were really bad I was not doing my homework I would rarely go to class than I had to get into a contracted. Even writing essay it always been hard for me because I would not practice now through junior and senior years I have been during I really improve a lot because now I go to my classes every day do all of my homework I practice all of my essays. And even sometimes I try to get involved with school like going a sport and it allows me always having a good Gpa so I could be able to play the sport. How does my learning impact my learning experience during high school?
I was presented with a whole new curriculum and teaching styles. Needless to say, my school grades went down since I was still adapting to a new language and school system. My first two school years in the United States were by far my worse but that did not stop me from succeeding. Even though I was young, I was able to understand what I was going through. I knew that I needed to not just put in the same effort as other kids my age but far more.
It helped round me out a little bit so I could see both the academic and the athletic sides of the school. Growing up with three older siblings there were a lot of situations that they ran into and I got to watch how they handled it and maybe how I would change it if I were to come upon a situation similar to
Since I was a little girl I would always hear my parent telling my older sibling how important it was to graduate high school and go to college. Now that I am grown, I understand why my parents would tell them and me to get a degree. My parents had poor education none of my parents finished high school, because in Mexico the highest free level of school was six grade and after that the parents had to paid more expensive tuition. Like it mentions in chapter 16 about how important is for parents to give advise, listen, and encourage their children. My parents remind me how they were not able to do or have what we have now when they were my
When I was younger I did not know who my parents were and I always thought I was the only child. Until I was about five was when I had first met my biological mother and my life changed drastically. I had visits with my mother until I was my be six years old then she stopped. Then when I was eight I moved to my fifteenth and last foster family (not home because I moved to my foster mother 's mom 's house when was thirteen and currency still live with them). I had unsupervised weekend visits over my biological sister 's house when I was 9, but I was treated very differently by my bio mother than my other siblings even though I was the youngest.
All I knew was that I did not want to accept that I was the youngest of three sisters and one brother. All my siblings experienced the joy of being the oldest, pampering their younger siblings and being the “boss” of everything. But I did not. Just like them, I wanted to share memories with my younger sibling that will bring an instant smile and be the guide that my sisters and brother was when I was growing
Whenever I was younger, I never realized that school was so important. I was at a stage where I did not care about school and gave up on everything including my grades. Until one day I knew that it was not a good decision and school is very important. Early mornings, and leaving my house for seven hours to sit at school and learn things is kind of crazy. Junior High was never my favorite school.
Once I realized that the move had affected my education, I changed my ways at school very quickly, by changing my study habits and how seriously I took my education. I tapped back to the values that were instilled into me at a young age, to have high expectations for myself and my educational goals. What also followed shortly after, was my appreciation of being able to receive an education and to this day I am excited to get to school everyday because I will be able to learn something
My father’s health has had several ups and downs, through the process of dealing with his illness. Most importantly, im getting my life back on track. I come back to college to finish my Associate degree, getting a new job, and most of it is getting back to how my life was before. Sometimes life puts us by the edge of steeped, not to punish for the wrong things one has made, but to teach as human being to value more what really matters in life. In my personal life experience, I had to leave everything and anything.
As mentioned, my first year of college I had the blessing of a life time, an experience so great that it would switch up my entire career and life. Becoming a father was not the hardest part of it, but the time it consumed out of my study time. As such, when I recently had to devote time and energy into my little one, it seemed like indirectly proportional to my grades. My grades were falling ever so radially, like if a boat was skinning faster and faster. Trying to balance being a father, work to support my family, and school to escape the spiral of poverty in my community was difficult to do.
