When I first laced up my skates after the long drought of not playing tears started to form in my eyes. I was not sad, but I realized the big mistake I had made. This year I am able to play both sports and manage to get all of my school work done. Meeting someone who plays hockey is such an amazing thing because we share something a lot of people do not have. Being raised in Texas meeting hockey players is special because there is not many of us.
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.
Over the years, my progress in writing had decreased. When I was in school, I could write a decent essay and achieve less errors. But writing an essay now is a harder task to complete than before. Years ago, reading was interesting because it kept me hungry to learn more knowledge. But being out of school for nearly two years makes it difficult to write essays.
Before I entered high school, I was never a fan of doing tasks that took a lot of nerve. Ever since I moved to Canada, I was insecure about my communication skills because I did not know much English and I was unfamiliar with the new environment. Therefore, my insecurity led me to become timid, as I started to have social anxiety. However, at the start of high school, I was determined to overcome my social anxiety and improve my public speaking skills.
At first I started off taking 1 or 2 classes per semester, but outside interference had me gradually upping the classes. Between work, a lack of motivation due to not having any idea of what I wanted out of life carved out, and pressure from family, I found myself not prepared for these classes. This is what you will see as you look up and down my transcript and see W's and WF's. You will see the unachieved goals, the times I thought I was an angel, the times I dreamt of being perfect. At the time of writing this paper I am 23 years old.
The beginning of the year started of rough as we started writing our first essay. I had no idea how I was going to write it at all. I struggled and struggled, but I started to get the hang of it, or well I thought I did when I got the essay back i had mad a 64. I was only one point from passing it which was still a bad grade but like I said I have never been good at writing.
for the first two years I always complained “It's so boring” and stuff like “don't force me to go again” but I got my stubbornness from my parents, so I kept going. It took a long time for me to stop complaining and realize that nothing is really “girly”. It wasn't until my fourth year that i realized it was something i really enjoyed. the dance shoppe has weekly hour long classes, usually just practicing, learning new steps, and combos and stuff. Then once it hits christmas break, we start to learn our dance.
My first time playing hockey was in the heart of winter on a frozen pond located down the block from my house. I went on the pond with my dad and brother for an afternoon of fun and sure enough that afternoon of fun turned into me falling in love with the sport and wanting to play it for the rest of my lifetime. My parents noticed my love for hockey and signed me up for a roller hockey class at my local community center. At first I made a major mistake and doubted myself because most of the kids in my class had already been playing hockey for a few seasons and it seemed like they were on a completely different level than I was. My parents urged me to keep trying and thankfully I never gave up and kept playing.
At the very young age of four years old I took my first of many strides on the ice. My first hockey season began not long after. I have three older brothers who all played hockey at that time, and I began to follow in their footsteps. I grew up watching hockey with my family and I believe that’s where my love for the game truly began. From the very first practice, I was simply in love and hooked with a responsibility to show up to all the practices and games every week.
Spring of 2014 I started my college career by enrolling at Highline College in Des Moines and take Highline’s placement testing. I scored significantly lower in math than what I had in high school, but I scored into college level English. I was highly discouraged with my math scores, I made excuses why I got those scores, blamed how long the test took, blamed how early it was but, after I calmed down and took the time to really look at the reason why I got the score that and realized It was because of my choice not to study beforehand. There understood that I wasn’t ready for college level math and where I placed was where I needed to start at if I wanted to start my college education with a solid foundation in mathematics. In Fall 2014 I began my first quarter as a Highline
In 7th grade, I transferred from Bryan Middle school to Visitation Catholic School and there was not enough room in the accelerated math program, which ultimately set me behind. In high school, I found myself bored in math and knew I needed to challenge myself, so I ended up setting up a meeting with the math department head and we discussed my options. Sophomore year, I ended up taking two math classes, which was not easy; double the test, quizzes and lessons! However, by taking two math classes, I was able to get myself into a higher math class which ultimately was my goal, and achieving it was an amazing feeling.
But then they started to overload her with work being a high school algebra teacher,and 8th grade math teacher . Evelyn couldn 't no longer handle all 3 jobs and came to a conclusion to quit . The last thing she did before before retirement with her husband was major in computer science . It was something she never learned before and wanted to give a open mind to new things .
For example, in the heading “Many students aren’t ready”, the author states “Some of them didn 't take enough math, some took the wrong math and some managed to pass the classes without learning the math”. The evidence explains that even though a student may pass a particular math course, they aren’t prepared to take college level math or even understand the concept of that math course. In the heading “Your child needs math every year” the author explains that just because some students took a higher level math in seventh or eighth grade and are able to “fulfill minimum admission requirements for all but the most selective colleges by the end of junior year” doesn’t mean they should take a break once they become a senior. Once they do take a break then taking college level math will be hard for
When I was in seventh grade my grades were struggling because I was immature and never did or turned in my homework. This was partially the result of my age. I am a year younger than most of the rest of my class. My parents, teachers, and administrator got together and discussed the benefits of holding me back to redo the seventh grade. I wasn 't fond of the idea, mostly because all of my friends would be moving on without me.
I was in two elementary schools,the first was Panama Elementary school. I was their for k - 4th grade and then moved to Leo B Hart Elementary school. I was nervous when I was going to go to jr high. My biggest concern was me being short and not fitting in. Also I thought it was going to be extremely difficult like my teachers explained, but when I was finally done with seventh grade it was not as hard as i thought.
