Although I was not expecting a good grade, I still wondered what I had done wrong. The paper had one mark on it that was it, but I was too shy to ask what I did wrong. The same thing happened again on the next essay we wrote weeks later. I was just about ready to give up on the class, not like I actually could quit it but I was not very motivated about it. After that essay I did ask
In fact, the odds are against you.” -robert greene I picked this quote because teachers are not going to going to hold you hand throughout high school. Their just their just their to teach the students who want to make it in life and some do not care if you pass or not. My grades have changed since I first started high school they were really good at first but then I got side tracked thinking I would pull up my grades last minute. I was horribly wrong and realized that it wasn’t as easy as middle school. My sophomore year was probably the worst because I slacked off and procrastinated but I picked myself up thanks to a little motivation.
How many times does someone believe their parents when they are in middle school anyways? As I arrived in my Student Advisory room I realized that there was no point in being afraid that I would not fit in or that I would be awkward the first few days. I realized that I would be awkward for a little while because this was a completely new experience for me, but I also realized that everyone else was still awkward. This realization is what made me think the following, “I can survive middle
I said to myself, “I was wrong about the USA people.” After all, I got home and rest for two days. I was very afraid to go out not because I don’t like to go out. I do like to go out but I was afraid that people will … at me because I did not know how to speak English. Then I stated my high school in 2009. On the first day I was so scared to go to school.
n AP Chemistry, test scores weigh heavily on our grade in the class so they are not taken lightly. It just so happened that the Tennessee HOSA (Future Health Professionals) Leadership Conference coincided with the final days of lecture and review for the test that was to take place the day after HOSA members arrive home. My teacher specifically told me and a classmate, who was also a HOSA competitor, that we were not expected to take the test on Monday but rather one day after school. Since she had given us extra time, we both focused on studying for our respective competitions rather than the AP Chemistry test. This, however, turned out to be a horrible mistake.
Surely getting international level education which provides you with a foreign certificate has an extortionate price, but my family enrolled me in an international school starting first grade. I cannot recall how exactly I learned to read in my early stages of education, but I remember that I hated it. I’ve always disliked reading, I thought it was very boring. My school mainly focused on teaching students to be proficient in English and barely met the government requirements of our first language, Arabic. One of the things I remember in my first few years of school is going to the library at the end of each week to pick up a book to be read by the help of our parents during the weekend.
She took the course not knowing the tedious work that was yet to come. Four Statistic classes were required to get her PHD. LeeAnn gradually started to do poorly during her first semester Statistics class and eventually was failing. However, LeeAnn’s master advisor told her that if she failed the Statistics class that she would not get her PHD, so she powered through and turned her ‘F’s’ into A’s.
Spring of 2014 I started my college career by enrolling at Highline College in Des Moines and take Highline’s placement testing. I scored significantly lower in math than what I had in high school, but I scored into college level English. I was highly discouraged with my math scores, I made excuses why I got those scores, blamed how long the test took, blamed how early it was but, after I calmed down and took the time to really look at the reason why I got the score that and realized It was because of my choice not to study beforehand. There understood that I wasn’t ready for college level math and where I placed was where I needed to start at if I wanted to start my college education with a solid foundation in mathematics. In Fall 2014 I began my first quarter as a Highline
I almost immediately regretted that decision as soon as the first essay came in. As I looked at the essay requirements initially, I thought “this won’t take long.” After about three hours and laughable progress, I realize the little writing skill I had was long gone. I ended up struggling for quite some time but managed to complete it. I am not sure of the total time spent, however I do remember by the time the class got around to the second essay I completed it way faster than the initial essay. There was two reasons the first essay ended up taking much longer than the second.
In 9th grade, I had a 2.7 GPA which really decreased my current GPA and it will greatly affect how I can get into a college. My current GPA for this year is a 3.57, but it isn’t good enough for me because I need a higher GPA to get into a better college. My concentration problems are the main cause for why I’m doing so bad in school. I usually don’t pay attention to all the important parts of the classes that we would need to know for a quiz or a test, so I just usually fail them. I could probably fix this habit, but I’m usually too lazy or sleepy to try.
I did not touch you is because you said you would send me an email after looking for my grades, but I always did not receive your message. You already said that you do not want to receive emails about changing the grade, so I think maybe meeting you directly would be better. Yeah, I know, my Aplia grade is not great since I forgot the last assignment and I had meetings on every Sunday night, and Clickers’ grade is not good too. However, my attendance did not affect my grade. I almost went to every class in the first half semester, but the midterm grade is not appropriate.
When I turned into a freshman, I decided to transfer to a deaf school for my high school years and graduated there. By then, my struggles with my writing and reading were improving by working hard. IN my freshman, there was an English teacher, Mrs. Copeland-Samaripa, a strict teacher I ever had seen and I failed this class once because of lack of my doing in homework and tests. I didn’t want to repeat the grade so I decided to work hard by studying notes for test and turned homework in on time. For next two years, I really didn’t learn lot about writing because of different teachers weren’t taught me very well then in my senior year, a bearded man, Mr. Dirk, came in my life.
I then spent weeks and months working on these ideas on the side and at night. Most of the time I would get bored and give up on the project or if I finished it, no one would sign up when it was launched. I did this for so many years it 's kind of embarrassing. AppFog was the first time I did something different, and this change in my usual game plan occurred because I was too tired to jump right into the programming right away.
As a freshman, I thought this was out of reach for me and pointless to work toward so I decided to put NHS out of my sight. I did not realize my potential as a young scholar; in doing so, I set myself back academically. My priorities were set on understanding the hectic schedule instead of the vigorous goals that I have now. As a fourteen year-old in freshman year, my standards were set lower for myself since I was unorganized and lost majority of the time. I lacked skills in time-management and multitasking; skills which I practiced and perfected through my school’s use of the modular schedule.
Firstly, Procrastination is a problem I faced early in the year and I should not have. At first it did not affect me as much as I thought it would but now that the semester is almost over I am stressing over my grades. If I would have taken my time and not waited till the last minute to finish lots of my essays
