But I try to ignore the comments I ask myself and try to be positive. I’ve also got in honors classes and I like the teachers I like they get us prepared for the next grade. In conclusion I loved every middle school year because of the teachers and the students. I’ve gone through many changes during middle school but I never knew they were so weird. But I’ve learned to adapt to this changed so it doesn’t feel as weird as the first time.
As the only other person except for my mother who works in our family, I have to support her. Everything I earn goes towards rent payments each month. If there are any leftovers, I try to cover my personal expenses, such as club dues. As a fan of debate and public speaking, I decided to join Mock Trial at the beginning of my junior year. At the time, I did not know, that Mock Trial was going to change my high school career.
I willed myself to communicate effectively. I helped my classmates see past our differences by being kind and studying with them. The two hours I spent commuting everyday was to attend the best school I could. My efforts became the genesis of my Academic Excellence and Scholar Athlete Awards, as well as lifelong friendships. Without a doubt, if I had not met such changes in my life with the same eagerness to excel, I would not be as well-adjusted of a person as I am
My extracurricular keeps me busy but I would not have it any other way. Aside from these activities, I am a student. I’ve had my fair share of good and bad teachers, good and bad students. I remember loving school from a very early age. I love learning.
Janet Arlene Stroup, at the age of 79, has quite a few stories about her days in school, and lucky for me, she was happy to share them. Janet attended Evendale Grade School from first grade to eighth grade. Every morning she walked two miles to school with her five younger siblings. At the beginning of the day, someone would ring the bell on top of the school and the children had to begin coming in from playing outside. If they weren’t in their seats by the second bell, they were marked tardy.
The junior students at my school rely on student mentors for support in their individual growth. As a mentor, I develop weekly lesson plans to engage grade 8 students in their transition to high school. Supporting these students and providing guidance in their academic and personal life is what I am there for. These grade 8 students need senior students who will encourage and ensure that they will be fine in high school because they can form connections as students. I only had personal connections with two senior students when I entered grade 8, and they were both family members.
She put me in her college english class when I became a senior, because she said I showed potential to be successful, and I am so proud that I took that class because it taught me how to do more. When I went back to public school I joined the reading competition team again, and for both junior and senior year, I became captain because I showed the team that I was the willpower to read all 30 books within the deadline. Even though our team did not place in the top ten, each year we grew closer and closer, and my team says it is with the help of me. I think going back to public school has helped me. Even though a lot of people believe that Jeannette is not a good school, and that they do not teach us the necessary components to get us to learn, just like in Sherman Alexie's reading, but we have shown people that they are wrong, and that we have some of the best kids in the school around the area.
That change of motive, prompted me to begin attending all after school tutoring sessions to learn to master my skills by seeking any and all resources available, including other math teachers on campus. My perseverant efforts were recognized by my teacher and he began to have an interest in helping me in my pursuit and desire to improve. Additionally, he began to understand my deep incentive to destroy the imposed profile. My test scores began to rise exponentially. When I received my midterm score of 98%, a score better than all the students profiling me, it was a day of victory.
Mom and Dad were with me as we waited for my teacher to come to the office to retrieve me. When she arrived, she was kind and asked me to follow her back to her classroom. I said goodbye to Mom and Dad and followed my new teacher, the timid anticipation bubbling up inside me again. The room was empty because the other kids were finishing up their recess so my teacher, Mrs. Jaeger, introduced me to the morning work that the class did every morning. I was working on that when the students started walking into the classroom.
And a leader does not let themselves down just because my school did not choose me as a nominee I did not give up I proceeded and well I got nominated by my summer job Where I worked in the courthouse. I believe this shows how I can persevere and always tried to overcome the obstacle for me. I remember the night I got home and i open my computer to see my email and I see an email from Posse saying that I was nominated I was so happy I could not stop smiling.I remember the email telling me that I was nominated for the Posse scholarship because Emily my organiser for my summer job saw good leadership skills with me and she wanted me to do my best with the posse and to never give up. The posse interview was one of the many things that students can go to and gain inspiration from it they teach you valuable lessons. Seeing the difference faces, different ethnicities made me happy because It was not just one race, but many and all of them were leaders in many different ways.But when I was there my stomach was rumbling but not because I was hungry, but because I was nervous So I did not pass to the second round, but I was not disappointed because i mae not have passed, but the posse interview made me realise many stuff and it actually gave me even more skills to keep trying to make them
The National Honors Society has been a constant but distant presence in my life ever since I was in middle school. Every once in awhile, teachers would mention our GPAs and tell us to keep them up if we wanted to be accepted into NHS, or they would attempt to coax us into behaving better by telling us that the National Honors Society frowned upon our current behavior. Back then, NHS was a prospective part of my future, and I didn’t worry too much about preparing. In my first two years of high school, I watched my fellow students in NHS work to keep up their grades up and to meet the volunteer requirements. I watched them and waited my turn to join them, because after learning what the National Honors Society really was and what it stood for,
Then I started thinking, “What if I started a cupstacking club in my old school?” So I decide to talk with elementary teachers over the summer to see if I can get a sponsor. The first teacher I ask said she was in charge of a program that will teach many new activities to children. By the end of summer the school cancel the entire program. I did not give up. I talked to more and more teachers and each one of
During my time in high school, I would get Bs and Cs, but now at Brookdale, I am getting grades I could only dream of and also enjoy learning athte same time. For example, the ALP was tough at first but during all the journals, the freewrites, and the essays were really were not so bad and they were easier because I paid attention to my professor on writing better and to make my emotions on paper,. To summarize how Brookdale was a good choice for me was I met good people, the courses, less money to spend, has a great hands on learning experience, and getting good grades. For all the new students in the ALP, learn and enjoy being in that program because that program really helped me learn two English courses in one semester so that
At school, I rarely felt challenged and I would enjoy being in a program that makes me think about real-world situations in a way that will help me later in life. I would like to expand my knowledge concerning negotiation and debate in a friendly setting. Last year, I learned things at LCM that I had never heard of before. It would be nice to be learning these skills for the entire year, as LCM is my only source of information concerning debate and
