1 in 10 students dropout of school because of repeated bullying. My survival experience is still going on today and has been for the past 8 years. I’ve tried going to councilors and talking to my parents, but nothing worked. I guess all I have left is to just get through middle school and hopefully it gets better in high school. Like most, I am a very healthy, average 13 year old girl.
She was only there for a few months and then leaving for maternity leave. This was the school year that I had two long term substitute teachers. While the first sub was there I was doing fine, but that soon changed when our next sub came in. The sub was moving extremely fast with all the math and science work that I couldn 't keep up. It was pretty hard to do a lesson in two days and then have quiz after quiz after quiz.
Kids need summers to learn not to take vacation because most students forget what they learned. In addition, Mctighe reports that the U.S. is falling drastically behind in school. In addition, she reports China’s education is ahead of the U.S by a lot. School year round is not that bad, kids get just as much or even more days off in the summer. It is very hard to get back to the school mode after a 3-month break.
I remember looking to the left and right of me everyone seemed to be enjoying the first day of school. Everyone including myself showing off our clean new outfits we had bought during back to school sales. Eagerly waiting for the bell to ring; I remember walking around trying to find something to do as I wait impatiently for school to start. Trying to find something I can go and chill I walk over to the school gym, taking a look around me I see our school colors, which are black and yellow. Almost forgot the name of my high school is Adrian Wilcox High, home of the thunder if I remember correctly or lightning one of the two but I digress.
On the first day, there were only six students there. Parents heard a lot about it from other people and every day Clara got more students. By the end of the first year, she had six hundred students in the tiny school house. She had two of her friends help her teach because she could not teach six hundred children by herself. Clara’s school got so big they had to move into a bigger
He and his friends used to do everything together; they played basketball, did homework, and attended church together every Sunday. But by the end of the day Kyle was in a better mood. This was due to the fact that he made some new friends in geometry. When they saw Kyle sitting by himself they quickly invited him saying, “Hey
My dad had signed me up for a class for my grade in order to get ahead in regular school, but after twenty minutes, it was pretty clear that I had already went through this material during school. So, after an agonizing twenty minutes of receiving compliments by strangers about completing the pretest after five minutes and having the teacher call me to the front to demonstrate long division, while she went to have a conversation with the principal about what to do with me, they decided to put me in a class that had both fourth and fifth graders. Right now, I was
My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before. I began slacking off inside as well as outside of the classroom. I stopped doing homework to my best ability’s, stopped studying for tests, and worst of all I was lying to my mother. For almost four months I treated my mother poorly. I constantly lied to her face about how my grades were.
The bell, loud and startling, rang as students stormed the hallways after a nice break from classes. Her fourth and fifth period consisted of introductions, class syllabus’, and get-to-know-you games. Lauren was in Algebra when the last bell of the day rang. She sighed in relief, she had just survived the first day of high school. While patiently waiting for her ride, she thought about her day.
Going to high school as a freshmen was just the beginning for me Sara thought. Eight classes in one day, early release, and boys but not just any kind of boys older boys. Sara has always been excited for high school and boys. As the day goes on Sara start to make new friends in her last hour. The school day is over.
”It was very shocking, but it gradually became more comfortable.” “I’m pretty comfortable,” said Ellison Girod, another student optimistically beginning her first year at Conifer. ”I know a few teachers already and I really like it here, so it’s a lot easier. It seems a lot better than middle school and I feel like [the school year] is going to go well.” Skirting the Commons are teachers, waiting excitedly with large, welcoming smiles as they watch their new pupils fill the commons. Just like the Freshman, many of these teachers are nervous to start their first year at Conifer High School; to teach their new students; to make an impression. “This will be my first year with Conifer; my second year teaching,” said John Shipley, the newest member to Conifer High’s athletics department.
Observation- On Tuesday12, 2016 the students were given a writing assignment about what they wanted to do during summer vacations. The assignment was given to first graders at Centennial Elementary School. The time was at five o 'clock and the lesson consisted of the teacher and eight students; five girls and four boys.

Some students were confused and the teacher explained that in summer they get a long break from school and then return and enter a higher grade than they are are today.
