Not only have I been a leader at work, but I have also been a teacher at my church every summer and during vacation Bible school. It is always fun to be around children and teach them about the words of God. if I am indeed inducted into national honor Society I plan to take on more leadership roles to improve the community. I want to be the person that people look up to and say goodbyes from. I hope to be able to help others in anyway shape or form I possibly can and inspire others the same way that others before, had inspired me.

Also, Driscoll argues that “[a]n average grade in an advanced course is more meaningful than an ‘A in a regular course” especially when supported by favorable SAT and ACT test scores. Despite this fact, Driscoll discusses the importance of forming valuable relationships with teachers, involving oneself in one’s community, and the ability to “write - and write well” when applying to colleges. Emily Driscoll has an accurate perspective about what must be done. Average Performance in testing and in challenging courses, along with significant involvement within a community, heightens one’s chances of getting accepted to a desired college. College applicants with proficient scoring in testing and in advanced courses tend to have higher chances of getting accepted.
This is the attitude I grew up. My father died a while ago but the values he instilled me are still with me. As today, I help my community in every way I can contribute. For instance, I volunteer a local food shelf called Emergency Community Help Organization (ECHO), which provides emergency food assistance to people in Blue Earth County and North Mankato. I go to the ECHO foods when I have a free time to hand food to the needy people in my community.
All of these attributes are related in that they all reflect my determined mindset in achieving my academic goals. Because I experienced hardships during high school due to my lack of determination, I worked to improve these aspects of myself so that I am not only more confident in my abilities, but also have a goal set in my mind that I can work towards achieving. I practice strategies such as avoiding to carelessly rush through homework by setting enough time to thoroughly complete the task, and investing myself to the tasks at hand. All of these had a direct correlation towards my academic self-confidence, because I now believe in my abilities to work through difficult tasks and
Keys to achieve academic excellence: academic success strategies Academic pursuit is a transformative experience that does not only nurture mental, social, and emotional development, but also the child’s unique character and potential. In this regard, every institution must incorporate a holistic approach to consider the theory of multiple intelligence as existent and relevant. However, student’s academic achievement may also depend on their personal approach on how they handle and manage to survive in school with excellence. To know the keys to academic success, below are some guidelines for the students to follow. Practice time-management The secret to gain academic success is knowing how to control priorities.
I learned to find friends and be academically successful all on my own. I learned to use my mesosystem of the interactions between my peers and school to aid my development and allow me to end up in the successful place that I am today. I used the example my family gave me to develop my moral strengths. I created my own ideas and my own morals based on the cognitive and emotional challenges that my home life created. I used school as an outlet in order to aid my cognitive development.
The school system itself can help shed a light on the purpose of education. Individual schools vie for the highest test score; this leads educators to act under the belief that higher test scores to show accumulation of information is the true purpose of education. The learning of information is not the purpose of education, but rather the rich identity of a learner is sparked by the tinder of information. Those around any individual assist in developing their individual identity. For instance, I have picked up mannerism of my friends like words, phrases, and hand motions.
Alongside basic standards and world class teaching, students should get a good "character" education. The shadow education secretary claimed evidence now showed that building skills such as resilience, curiosity, self-control and grit were more essential than academic achievement when it came to succeeding in life. Researchers and experts agree that the "ancient ideal" of building character has a key role in modern-day education. Resilience, curiosity, discipline, self-control, and grit; whether at school, home or work, the evidence seems to suggest that possessing these skills in abundance is a crucial determinant of life-long success. It is needed more than pure academic
STUDY SKILLS Study skills or study strategies are approaches applied to learning. They are generally critical to success in school/university, considered essential for acquiring good grades, and useful for learning throughout one’s life. “You will never know what you can really do until and unless you free yourself from the way you have always done it.” A person should study and continue studying so that he can learn new-new skills. Some students think that their IQ level is less than the other students. And it’s often taken for granted that academic success is the result of ‘being clever’ and that is something you are blessed with or not at birth.
Joy is influential to Wes because she knew that Wes had the ability to learn and to be intelligent, she just needed Wes to push himself to be intrigued in school like how he was in music or outside activities. As Joy tried to get Wes’s grades up she finally came up with a plan to send him to military school. “Wes, you are not going anywhere till you
Therefore, my ambition motivated me to join Keep Brownsville Beautiful on the effort to improve the community’s environment. I was part of the recycling events in which took place during many high school football games to collect empty plastic bottles to recycle them to reduce greenhouse effect. My other participations in community service events are with the National Honor Society. As the Parliamentarian for the Lopez Early College High School National Honor Society, I contributed in the participation of the organization to be present at the Mile of Hope to bring awareness for breast cancer. In addition, we organized a canned- food drive to be donated for the school’s janitors and those in need during the Thanksgiving break, we collected toys for “Toys For Tots”, wrote Christmas Cards for Veterans and volunteered at Spanish Meadows, a nursing home, to share the Christmas Spirit with the elders.
Lambert once posed. After watching a film about the life of a famous composer he asked us, “do you believe intelligence is inherited or earned through hard work?”. My answer to this is although the chance to be born a gifted prodigy is a small chance, everyone has the ability to improve and educate themselves so hard work is key. As a student at Catalina Foothills High School, i’m realistic enough to be aware that even though a course may be rigorous and even a little exhausting, I need to set myself down because hard work correlates to knowledge gained. Overall, this relates to the tenet of service because I am willing to uphold scholarship and maintain a loyal school attitude, while also taking on difficult
In National Honors Society, they recognize students with outstanding grades. I believe that I have done so, and I have worked hard to get the grades that I have gotten. My cumulative GPA is a 3.923 which I think is commendable. My grades are a top priority, and they are expected of me from my parents. I really care about my grades, and I try my hardest to keep them up.
My sister graduated from Cheverus with excellent grades and now attends a very good college. Cheverus helped her academically, socially, and spiritually.

I know that Cheverus will set obstacles that may challenge me to think. Not only will I be receiving an excellent education, I will also be learning to grow into a more spiritual, moral person.
