State standardized tests are exams students take to assess their schools, teachers, and what they learned in their year. Many parents and teachers deem these tests useless and see it as an unnecessary stress added to their child’s life. Students should not be taking this exam because it causes a major curriculum gaps between students, causes stress and loss of interest in school, and after almost a full year of learning, this test is supposed to determine a student 's knowledge of the year’s curriculum. Although some say this test prepares students for college, the stress and loss of interest in school caused by this test and test prep can affect student’s mental health and grades. State tests cause stress and anxiety in students, especially lower performing students because of the pressure of making sure all students, regardless of ability, reaches the same level.
Numerous students feel that the school administrators do not trust them, and that is why they perform the locker searches. However, in most cases that is not the truth. Most of the time parents believe that it should not be legal to search their child’s locker, so it all comes down to legal issues with the school. Parents believe that hiring staff to perform locker searches is a waste of precious money and time. Although there are many different views on performing random locker searches, there are many good supporting claims from both sides.
My sophomore year, I placed eleventh out of over 130 students at the very competitive state level. Because of DECA, I am much more comfortable communicating with business professionals and expressing knowledge in business topics. I actively participate in National Honor Society, as well, and I currently serve as the vice president. National Honor Society recognizes students of high academic standing and places an emphasis on community involvement. As vice president of National Honor Society, I have led efforts such as our annual canned food drive and peer tutoring activities.
The reasoning behind assessing the concerns in this order is to address the most crucial concerns first. With type 1 diabetes checking blood sugar and giving insulin injections is going to become a part of the patient’s daily routine so it is imperative that they properly know how to do this. Side effects are always a big concern when giving medication and it is important that the patient knows what is expected and what is not expected from a medication so that they can come in to see a doctor is any adverse symptoms arise with taking the Insulin for type diabetes or Bactrim for urinary tract infection. It is also important that the patient knows what foods are going to help or hurt them with type 1 diabetes. Lastly, it would be important to address the patients concern about if they will be able to run cross-country because this is something that is important to them (Gentile, 2011,
I am going to keep flyers in the public places such as Library, Community centers, local groceries store and coffee shops. In the meeting I with my partner will be talking about the importance of community safe and how the program can be implemented. In addition, I am thinking of involving high school students and youth as a volunteer. This opportunity would provide youth, the sense of responsibility towards the community (Wang, 2006). These volunteers can escort residents to their destination.
In today's society, those who dress differently at school are often bullied and made fun of. Another example of conformity in today's society is bathing. I guess it is showing good hygiene, but if a person does not shower every day that doesn't make them weird. If you don't want to bathe every day, do not. “I’m antisocial they say.
What that teacher said prompted many doctors appointments and tests and speech therapies. That is a lot for a fourth grader to take on. One doctor told my mom I had aspergers and that I would never make it anywhere just as my teacher had told me. My mom was not going to take that answer, she took me to a specialist who diagnosed me with something else. What this doctor diagnosed me with fit much better and explained a lot to my mom and I.
The other serious problems like hypertension, arterial diseases, lipid disorders or even heart disease are also linked to diabetes . There are two types of diabetes which include; a) Type 1 Diabetes and b) Type 2 Diabetes. The reason for Type 1 diabetes is inability to produce insulin in body while that of Type 2 is insufficient production of insulin or inability of the body cell to recognize insulin. Diabetes is called as a lifelong disease as inability to produce insulin or insufficient production leads to high levels of glucose in blood. In normal individuals release of insulin triggers removal of blood sugar and also stimulates liver to produce more glucose which help in maintaining the blood sugar to normal level.
As secretary, I let members know they could rely and come to me for advice and help. Students would come up to me and ask for help planning their schedules for pre-health tracks or for help in organic chemistry. Another example of my leadership skills was when I was team captain for, "Into the Streets", a community service day where we assist organizations
A few fundraising events in which our council has carried out include a Tie-Dye booth, countless bake sales, raffles, and the Color Fest. In addition to Student Council, I am responsible and dependable as a student and fellow peer. However, the reason why I feel I need to improve my leadership is because I need to demonstrate more leadership within the classroom. I will do this by speaking up more, offering opinions, giving feedback to the teachers on common issues all the students are facing, and so
“Anything you can put in your pantry,” Charland said cheerfully when I asked what type of donations BABH was looking for. Besides donating food, students can get involved with the many events lined up for this fall season. October 3 begins the Big Kick Off Event at the Ferg from 11-3 (Division of Student Affairs Beat Auburn Beat Hunger). Students are encouraged to come out and learn more about the organization. Free snacks and beverages will be provided.
The book is basically Mr. O’Connell’s recollection of being diagnosed pre-diabetic, his journey to find more information on treatment and how effective it is, and Mr. O’Connell’s father passing away from not taking care of his diabetes. Before getting into the takeaways from the book we need some definitions and to shed some perspective on how dire the diabetes problem is. So, what is diabetes? The short answer is it’s when your blood glucose or sugar is too high. How it works is when you eat food your body breaks it down into sugars that enter your bloodstream to be distributed throughout your body for energy, when this happens your pancreas releases a hormone called insulin to transport those sugars to the
I see the struggle present in the community and it pains me to see that we are a food desert, it pains me to see that our schools aren 't properly funded, and it pains me to see some of our teachers are inexperienced. I am pained because my Montbello is my home. My school is a result of a broken and corrupt system that took a bulldozer to the staple of the community; Montbello High School. However, I love my school. From creating the Student Council my freshmen year, to serving as Freshmen, Sophomore, and Senior Class President, I work to the best of my abilities to better my school.
The classrooms and management are under strict pressure from the government. They are mandating testing and basing teacher performance on student scores. With the focus on numbers, we are not able to meet the children where they are in their educational needs and are unable to provide them with thriving environments for educational growth. This pressure results in failure of leadership, micromanaging classrooms, and constant change in employees. Another issue that challenges school systems is the threat of violence.
Quite a few obstacles had to be overcome to start a new organization in the school. As part of the proposal, I wrote a concise, detailed document that included tentative guideline of events. In addition, I researched and formulated bylaws with enhanced requirements for admission into the society to fit the standard of high-achieving students at Westlake. I recruited a team of officers to help implement my ideas, and found spirited teachers to be the faculty
