Every student starting middle school has a conflict in making new friends the first days of school. Me myself also had problems making new friends because I was very shy. Fortunately I had one of my friends from elementary school. Although I'd love to tell you the way I made friends I changed over the year to survive middle school. Overall I was a good student in elementary, but I had many flaws and I still do.
There are many different traits that people possess that make them individuals, for me, the most important or prominent trait would probably be my need to always have things planned out in advance and as well as possible. I gained this trait mainly through elementary school, I was very unorganized throughout most of it and even though I wanted to be getting good grades, I was always losing and forgetting about my homework. Over time I think I just started to sort of overcompensate by being much more organized that I need to be. While it can sometimes be hard to plan out everything as much as I would like, it has been very helpful for me in the past with school work and all of my jobs I’ve had for me to be pretty good at organization and time
In the course of the year, due to the Peer Leadership program, I feel much more motivated. At the beginning, I was insecure and unable to carry out the responsibilities successfully. Many times I found myself out of place and expressing myself was a challenge since I did not feel confident. But I have been able to feel part of a group for the first time in a class at school. I can share with other peers and unwind more easily in front of them and out of class as well.
As a 9th grader I made a few bad choices at Lemoore High School because I was immature. After 9th grade I learned and haven 't got in trouble that much at all. As a senior now I realize how much I matured since freshman year. The most important thing from my mistakes is that I learned not to do it again. As I get older I feel like I will continue to mature and fit into the real
The Game of School: Why We All Play It, How It Hurts Kids, and What It Will Take to Change It by Robert L. Fried is a great tool for identifying challenges in school systems and planning school reform. This book explains in great depth the problems faced by students and educators in schools today and ends with a call to action for solving these problems. Some major concepts that arise frequently throughout the book are time being wasted, students feeling powerless and the prioritization of test scores over authentic learning. Time is wasted by everyone in school and is wasted in various ways, for example students are given busy work and teachers rush through a curriculum while students learn nothing. Students, while they are the most important stakeholders, feel as though they have no control over their education.
Going to a new school is tough going to multiple schools is tougher. In the book Wonder, August feels what it’s like to be the new kid at school; I could totally relate to this, as I have gone to many schools and experienced the dread and anticipation that goes along with it. August is transferring in to a school instead of getting home schooled, I have never been home schooled but I have been moved across country from Hawaii to South Carolina. It was a huge transition because I wasn't used to the different people. I was a little first grader in a huge school filled to the brim with first to eighth graders, so I didn’t know how to act yet.
Life is a very diverse and complex topic, and being a teenager mixed into this society where all of our hormones are all over the place, self-esteem drops, and people are changing; makes it even more confusing. I am not a student who has been bullied, to an extent, I am not one who struggles with major things like body dysmorphia, but I have been through a lot, and had to grow up very quickly. Since my parents divorced when I was about 6, I realized many things about life. The most major thing is that it 's extremely scary out in society, I 'd get lectured many times on how to survive in life the best, mainly financially, I learned about basically setting a budget for everything, knowing to barely spend anything, only get cheap plans
I might have lost the school spelling bee but I’m still keen in spelling and learning new words everyday. But that specific day had left me traumatized. From that day forward I felt uncomfortable sharing my literature, expressing myself, participating in academic events or something as simple as talking. This predicament fortunately faded away gradually throughout my years of development especially in high school. Anytime I am placed in the same position I was on that day I get feelings of nostalgia of this episode that occurred in my life.
That’s why the idea of talking in front of a class (composed of students I don’t know personally) was really overwhelming for me. The day before the first session, I was really scared and worried. I felt that I was still not prepared despite reading the modules repeatedly. I was like, “What if I stutter and forget what I need to say?” “What if they make fun of me?” But during the first session, the odds were in my favor when Benny joined our group. We divided the class into four small groups, and thankfully since there were five of us I got paired with Fret.
Ever since I was little I have been good at English, so I have never really learned much in Junior High. The reason that I want to teach high school is simple, I want to teach the students something more than just grammar. In high school, we do poetry, short stories, argumentative essays, and articles of the week. I do think that I would also be a good Math teacher because my grade currently rests on a rounded 100% and it is easy for me as well, but I do not enjoy it as much as English. Just
