Throughout high school, and some college I have experienced the some of the major things to deal with in life. In high school I was only kind of told about some of the challenges that awaited, but also was given some right there to deal with on my own. I started high school trying to be the best that I could be. Doing that caused lots of struggling to happen. 4 honors classes with homework in each class and trying to play games all night didn’t cut the study plan, causing a lot of stress.
The majority of adults go to work for eight hours a day, then go home and spend time with their friends and family. They have time to do these things because oftentimes, they do not have extra work to do at home. The inestimable amount of homework given to students each week precludes the opportunities to do everyday activities. Although one of the main aspects of school is homework and the majority of teachers assign it each night, there is an ongoing debate about whether it is advantageous. Some say that homework is beneficial to students because it gives them more practice on the content they are learning, however, studies have proven otherwise.
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.
ecoming a college student can be exciting and mysteriously, until you get thrown a pile of work with strict deadlines. You may think college is similar to high school but it 's completely different with much more responsibility . What makes it challenging is trying to keep up between school and your personal life. You have to manage school,work and personal activity into what is important to the least important at the same time. Managing your time really come in play because I use to procrastinate on many of my work assignments and not get turn them in on time.College instructors sometimes don 't even let you turn in late assignments, so you have to keep up or else you 'll fall behind.
Throughout high school , I struggled with academic work . It wouldn't be that I didn't want to do the work ; it was just that it became more difficult for me to remember what I learned and put it to use . But for sports it was a different story , I could remember every single play and execute what I learned with ease . But that was high school now I'm in college and everything is ten times harder . Sometimes I wish the class room were as simple as me being on the field knowing what to do .
My first year of high school wasn't so bad, but I’ve learned a lot on how to be responsible and to care about my grades, because no know will be there to tell me to turn in my work, or to tell me what i'm doing wrong and that taught me a lot about becoming an adult. My second year of high school wasn’t the best for me when first tri started I was doing good, I was turning in my work trying to get passed the days, After first tri got over I started to get really sick, so I didn't come to school for a couple of days. When I came back to school I was behind, therefor I had to stay before and after school to get caught up. After I gotten caught up things were going good. During one of our breaks my stomach started to hurt, so bad I had to go to the hospital to have my appendix taken out at 1 o'clock in the morning.
Why are my goals important to me? For me, my goals during high school have always been important because it made me think that I would try my best, but unfortunately, during my school years, it was really bad only in some subjects. Like English, Scientist, and World Geography because I would not pung a lot of interest because I whether talk to my friend instead of paying attention in class. But since the beginning, I always tried to have good grades and good to school every day, but I really did work on and since I have always regretted because I think that I missed a lot during school. Your academic skills or effort and why?
It supposed to be my leisure years because I had already known where I went to. However, my family compelled me to take tests at a gifted school, moreover, what they learned was beyond my knowledge and my ability. So one thing deviated from the safe path: studying in a good secondary school. In the end, I was in the middle school that I knew I would go. Certainly, it was still a good one, but it wasn’t what my family expected.
At the beginning of seventh grade I was very worried about the first day of school, but as the days went by the worries went away. The first thing I was worried about the most, was getting lost in a big school. As I got used to where my classes were I was not worried about getting lost. The second thing I was worried about was the new principal, Mr. Watkins, because I didn't know if he would be mean or nice or how he acted. Mr. Watkins is a nice principal so my worries went away.
I went through sleepless nights, imagining myself standing in front of everyone and under careful scrutiny. I feared of the social event that I was about to go through and fear of failure because I did not know what would be the right things to do as it was my first time ever being a teacher. I felt like what I have learned for the whole semester one was only about theories, methodologies and concepts of successful teaching and learning practices but nothing was practical to resolve the uncertainty I experienced. However, the orientation and practicum workshop did shed some lights for me. On the orientation day, I learned about previous teacher trainees ‘experience of what to do and not to do, and how to prepare myself.
