I have not seen no progress of Kalina this school year. I believe the lack of communication from teacher to parent is a strong impact of Kalina’s progress. I introduce myself in the beginning of the school year to inform all of her teachers of my strong input of Kalina’s education, but when it comes to there Kalina’s concerns and/or struggles, I am not informed of there and/or her needs. I have been in contact with her math teachers, but that is not a lather of concern as Kalina does not have a math IEP
It was the height of a spring softball game, and all of my girls were lined up against the chain-link fence chanting cheers in support of their teammate. I took a moment away from coaching to see one of my players standing isolated by the trees. She was talking on her cell phone looking more distraught than ever before. I walked over to her and asked her if everything was okay. She apologized quickly and said she needed to take this phone call, for it was her dad, and he was calling from prison. I was in shock- it was hard to believe that underneath all of the happiness was a girl who has had a much tougher life than I could have imagined. It was in that moment I knew, there was more depth to my 10 year old girls than I could have imagined. My job was to be much more than a softball coach.
The transition from childhood to adulthood occurs when an individual is able to recognize the impact he or she can leave upon their community, gaining life skills doing so. An accomplishment that marked my transition from childhood to adulthood, would be best demonstrated by the process and completion of a leadership responsibility when I performed my Eagle Scout Project. I joined the scouting program when I was very young, and have been very active since ever. Becoming an Eagle Scout has many challenges that a young Boy Scout must undertake, including the completion of a community-based project, which is an important step in obtaining this notable rank. The Eagle Scout Project is designed for the scout to learn different leadership responsibilities. The project allows the scout to have practice with difficult situations to give the young man experience in life lessons. My community-based project was
My interest in math has influenced me to look at future careers that involve math, such as biological engineering, because I will enjoy taking the math classes required in that particular major. Ever since my grandmother died with lymphoma, I have been very interested in biology because I want to find a cure for cancer. Before going into biology, I did not think that biology involved math skills, however, it did not take me long to learn that it is very important to have a good understanding in math to do well in a science course. As I began to exceed in math, I began opening doors to other career options that involved math. Also math has influenced me to look at life from a different perspective, a more mathematical
Ashley has been extending her knowledge of math this year. She is continuing to work on concepts above grade level. Her facts are becoming faster and she is applying them in a variety of ways. She is feeling more and more confident in her skills and is always eager to learn more.
Sonia is an exceptional student when it comes to academics. She is very hardworking and will put in all her effort for everything she does. She has always had a great passion for science and finds her way to get involved in any science event. For example, last year she participated in the Alameda County Science Fair, and received fourth place for her experiment. She hopes to have a similar experience at the Stanford Medicine Research program as well, and her beneficial experience with the science fair pushed her to try out this summer program.
I have never been a perfect student. I have had many shortcomings and struggles throughout my middle school years. Regardless of that, I’ve always tried to be the best student I could be. The thing that got me into trying even harder to maintain my grades was not my parents, but the stress that I had piled onto myself. Yes, my parents wanted me to achieve excellent grades, but it was mostly me who put the pressure on myself. Sometimes I would stay up late to finish an assignment and other times I would have a panic attack because I got a B. In the beginning of 8th grade I had so much pressure on myself that my parents decided I need to see a therapist. I even let friendships suffer for my grades, although I’ve stopped the habit. However,
Last March, I came to realize that all of my focus was only on school, sports, and work and I didn't take the time to help out my community in enough ways as I should. I wanted to do something that I would enjoy and knew that I loved kids so I decided to email our elementary school principal and see if there was anything I could do to help out in the school. So ever since then, I started going in every Thursday to volunteer with whatever he needed me to do. Sometimes I would work for him, other times for the librarian, secretary, or other teachers. A lot of the time, however, I would pull kids out of class and help them on a paper that they didn't understand or we would read books together. I loved to help them because it put a smile on their
The egg experiment was a creative way to helping us learn more about the development of children. I really enjoyed this project. I was able to learn a lot and be creative all at once. My child was a girl and I named her Victoria Blake. Victoria was an overall great child although we did experience some bumps in the road. Luckily I chose a great style of parenting in which Victoria and myself could grow and learn in a healthy and positive environment. I also realized that parenting is not such an easy thing and that there are many things that go into helping a child develop and grow.

What’s a coincident Maria, I noticed from reviewing your subject’s profile that both our subjects have several things in common. Both like to read “The Diary of Wimpy Kid.” Both don’t like to read at play time. They like to watch T.V., and both are eager to be better in reading.
One of my favorite memories growing up is how much time I spent reading. Whenever I got a new book I couldn 't put it down. I remember that I would always read on the bus ride home. Reading was something that I liked to do. As I’ve gotten older my choice of books has changed alot, a different genre for each of my phases. Today the books that always manage to get my attention are usually the books based on true events.
Like many others, the chocolate chip cookie brings back memories from my childhood. One of my favorites is running into my grandmother’s house after chasing my dogs around outside and being greeted by the warmth and aroma of freshly baked cookies in the oven. Even nowadays, when I enter her house, the sweet smell fills the air and I leave any bitterness, frustration, or sadness that I may have at the door.
