He gets the credit for making me the player I am today. He would help me change my shot and give me positive feedback, but would also be tough when needed. For over three years I was coming in early mornings and late nights to practice my shooting form with him. All those practices have finally paid off and the form of my shot is more consistent than ever. Even when I left Hoop Dreams he would still come to the gym and help me shoot.
In my four years of high school, I have been very active in everything the school has to offer. I have filled up my after school hours playing sports, performing in plays and choral concerts, and working at the school to help teach the younger generations Language Arts. During my summers, I volunteer at summer school to assist in the math classes for middle school and high schoolers while I also have a job being a lifeguard. Basketball, softball, and golf are the sports that I’ve played over my high school career. I’ve participated in four years of basketball and softball, and three years in golf.
It gives descriptions of what people will do over the summer and also makes it sound like the narrator can just go on and on about the different fun activities that people do. The couplet adds some irony to the poem. It says that the whole list of summer activities was just a dream that a student had in math class and now summer is starting for real and they get to live through all those
Our dinner Wednesday night with the folks at EdMap was wonderful. We are anxious to meet with Andrew next week for a virtual demo. I talked with Jeremy as well as Maureen about piloting EdMap with a couple of our Gen Ed courses to be developed. We met Dr. Ron Hannaford and Dr. James Tedford from Biola University. God was so good to seat us across
It is heartwarming that she recognized my hard work and dedication. I thanked her later that evening and today my name is engraved on a plaque presented in a school display case. If I had never started tutoring kids in fifth grade then my appreciation for sharing my love for school academics wouldn’t gotten to where I am today. By providing tutoring assistance helped me understand that we all learn differently. I hope that all the students I tutored will continue to improve academically.
After that, I took their feedback, revised, and then turned it into my professor to get more feedback. Once I got my professor’s feedback, I then could revise as many times as I wanted. You are probably thinking this sounds a lot like what I did for your class. I realized once again after having your class, that revising my papers makes them much stronger. I was able to improve on the way I wrote for this genre through exploding the moment and setting the scene for my audience, which made it stand out more.
I completed my practicum experience at Ellen Hopkins Elementary in Moorhead in a second-grade classroom. Mr. Larson was my cooperating teacher and he taught me more about teaching and relations to students than I think he realizes. The students also taught me every single day new ways to see certain concepts and positive ways to react in situations. I think Mr. Larson was an excellent cooperating teacher who helped me realize and see a classroom through the eyes of a teacher. My favorite component of the classroom was being able to build on what we were learning and discovering in ED 205 and see it first hand in the classroom by making connections between our readings from Ayers into seeing how the readings take place in a real-life context.
One way is to be very organized. I learned every year how to be organized and I learned new techniques to improve. AVID helped me significantly to be organized. I feel like organization is a key to college because if I was not organized, it will be hard for me to find my assignments and I do not think I will do well. All my teachers love my binders because it is neat, organized, and easy for them to find assignments.
For spring break my family and I went to Gulf Shores. Gulf Shores is in Alabama and we have been going there for the past 5 years. In my family there is my brother Jake, my sister Audrey, and my parents Jeff and Kathy. We take a car down there and meet some friends that go to the same school as us. The restaurants down there are very good and I go golfing with my dad and his friends.
When I first learned how to read, I developed a very strong internal motivation. I utilized this self-motivation in high school to reach my educational goals and aspirations. My self-motivation was vital for maintaining high academic standings, good time management and staying organized, which are all important for doing well in college and the working world. Finally, Dyslexia was actually a blessing in disguises because it helped me how small details work together to make the big picture. I was willing to put in the effort to learn to read because I saw how vital it would be for future academic success.
The pillar of scholarship has taught me to appreciate the people in these groups as they guided me towards my academic goals. Sharing their advice, they have taught me to take pride in my work and my dedication to getting things done. I not only learned to keep my grades high, but I enjoyed the work and kept enriching my knowledge. Attending the National Honor Society and other groups allow me to set priorities, a skill that gives me the ability to manage my time. Managing my time is what helped me maintain my high GPA, as it was always my top
