Mr. West, Hello. I am Rebecca Brown. I went to Sheridan Schools growing up and would like to return to teach English at the high school. Unfortunately, I have run in to a bit of a snag with financial assistance. I have two years remaining before my degree and to Praxis exams to complete.
In the beginning of high school, I made the poor decision to hang out with people who did not love God. They were bad influences and I suffered deeply mentally. I had anxiety and panic attacks during my freshmen year due to constantly feeling
Over the this past semester in freshman composition I have learned how to write a college level paper. Going into this class, I was a little unsure and scared that I wasn’t going to be able to do the things that were required for me to do. As the semester passed I could definitely see a change in my writing. I learned how to use the appropriate punctuation, how to write and refute an argumentation paper, which I believe is my strongest piece of writing and how to research and gather information to write a strong research paper. I knew coming into this class that I was going to struggle with my punctuations, word choice, and the overall flow of the paper.
Handwriting was one of my first struggles, in the beginning of grade school. It was always something that was very hard for me and I remember that. I had trouble on how to to write the letters and when I did the letters they ended up being enormous and all messy. I could never get my handwriting neat like the teacher would have. So I practiced, a lot, and I believe that helped me.
Yes. I graduated from the Texans Can Academy, an alternative high school for at-risk students. My level of preparation upon graduation was subpar. Since college was never part of my plans I never took an SAT or ACT. Throughout high school I was learning a foreign language and adapting to a new culture all while learning the required material in grade school.
The transition from middle school to high school is what shaped me the most and this adjustment has changed me in both good and bad ways. As a freshman, I enrolled in a private school, called Bridgemont High School. It was a very small school and did not have the same help as the public schools offered. I didn 't have an ELD class and classes providing extra help were limited. Eld means einglish language development, these classes are classes to help develop your english speaking skills even though i can speak english i had poor grammar.
It was a total mess, I was having unacceptable grades, difficulties in keeping up with the class and so on... After struggling for semesters, I finally realized that I wasn 't meant to be an engineer. So instead of chasing a dream that wasn 't meant to be and at the same time spending so much time and my parent 's money, I decided
A year ago if you had asked me what I carried my answer would have been, “I carry my shame, my depression, and my anxiety, I carry my fear of others opinions, and I carry my scars which I am ashamed of, and the constant reminder I am but a failure” and at that time this is what I genuinely believed. These being unseen, unknown burdens I carried with me everywhere I went. I had severe depression since the 6th grade and never thought I would be strong enough to one day overcome it. Asked today what I carry, I would assure I carry my pride, my grades and my progress, high and mighty. I would say I carry my happiness and my healthiness as if it were a trophy.
While I do not consider it a failure now at the time I was definitely frustrated with myself and considered it a failure. When I had to repeat my junior year I was mad at myself for not be able to complete the school year. As time went on I was able to focus on the positives in the situation and I was able to finally accept that I was not prepared for my senior year both emotionally and academically considering I missed so much school. If I did continue on to senior year I would not have been close to prepared as I am now for college. I ended up repeating my junior year due to the fact that I missed close to two-thirds of school due to a medical condition.
