I have been looking back on my first semester and though it was my lowest of low points, I now see overcoming it as one of my proudest moments. As I pursue my education here I hope to learn more than how to stage manage and being here for only one semester I can honestly say that I already have. I am learning how to be a better person, how to communicate with those who
Although it may not seem like a big deal in hindsight, the first time I failed a test taught me one of the biggest lessons I ever learned: the value of knowing that you are always enough, no matter the situation. As a freshman in high school, I was used to getting good grades with little effort. So taking an AP class seemed like an easy opportunity to buff up my transcript. Little did I know that that would be one of the hardest classes I would take. On one of the first tests we took I scored a forty percent.
He also set short-term goals of earning A’s in every class during the first semester. To accomplish these goals Jerome developed a written self-management system and showed interdependence by starting a study group. When the semester ended Jerome had failed accounting 101. The author goes on to talk about Jerome’s inner guide. “ Jerome made some strange choices during his first semester.
According to the TNCC 's Graduation Transfer Retention report, only 15.7 percent of students were able to complete their degree in 2012. This statistic is appalling because the students are working hard in their classes, paying the college 's financial gills, and hoping to get their degree. Some of student cannot graduate. I am attending Thomas Nelson Community College, and I hope to earn my degree within two years. Although college is difficult, I will be successful by seeking advice from experts and developing some effective study strategies.
My freshman and sophomore year were the hardest years for me academically and socially. But that all changed for me at the beginning of my junior year thanks to my AP Calculus class. My teacher Mrs. Bandt didn 't only teach me she made me think in a whole new way. This class really helped me break out of my shell and got me thinking that i could make
But I try to ignore the comments I ask myself and try to be positive. I’ve also got in honors classes and I like the teachers I like they get us prepared for the next grade. In conclusion I loved every middle school year because of the teachers and the students. I’ve gone through many changes during middle school but I never knew they were so weird. But I’ve learned to adapt to this changed so it doesn’t feel as weird as the first time.
I am a better student because I have learned effective strategies and pondered over my future goals. I have learned a lot about myself as a reader and a writer. When I first began class, I tried to read the DRP test. I had forgotten everything about college vocabulary that was on the test since I left the university in 2013. I had not read any books in a few months until teacher recommend for me to take fifteen minutes to read
In my junior year of high school, I came to dominate the role of a junior class representative in the English Honors Society, a secretary in Mu Alpha Theta, and a junior class representative in Science Exploration Club. In my senior year, I became the president of Mu Alpha Theta, vice president of English Honors Society, and event coordinator of the FIU Science Club. Due to the difference in hours of commencement for the AAA program and for Dr. Michael Krop, my peers and I could not engage in the activities conducted in our main high school. Thus, through the roles I presided over, I brought back the high school experience that the AAA program
Every parent wants their son or daughter to get good grades but my parents wanted me to have perfect grades since then, I have had an issue perfectionism. In high school, I had done well in classes. But now that I am in the second semester of college, I am shattering apart even though in the prior semester I was on the Dean’s list. I have so much pressure in college classes, not to
While I was at home, I missed a half a unit and a test prep in algebra and the unit test was the next day. So when I got back to school, I had to take the test, and I had no idea what to do. If I was at school I would know what to do and would have done better. If a freshman wants to be successful they need to get to school and classes as much as
Moving to the United States was not an easy journey for my family and I. I had to get integrate to a new society which meant a changing to my traditional lifestyle and habit and learning a new language and culture. In high school, I adapted well because many courses were not too vigorous, and the classes moved at a slower pace. On the contrary, college requires juggling multiple classes and adapting to the new college life. For eighteen years of my life, I had never spent more than two days away from my parents, so it was quite difficult at first. When I first started college, I pursued a major that I have no interest in.
After trying for many years to get better grades with little to no success, I gave up on trying and just accepted whatever grade I ended up with. When I got into middle school and started taking classes like Algebra 1 and Spanish that would count for high school credit, it became very apparent to me that the grades that I get in these classes could very easily affect my high school GPA and my ability to get into a college of my choice. It was this realization that pushed me to further improve myself and my better being. During the seventh grade I got diagnosed with ADHD and started a medication regiment that significantly helped me focus and understand the lessons that my teachers were teaching. All of this was great and my grades did significantly improve, but the cons
My short term goal for this week and the week coming forward is to continue to use my time wisely to study for the last few test that we will have. I have progressed a lot this month with getting my grade up. In the beginning of the month I can honestly say I did not use my time like I should have. I did not fully read the chapters I was given, and my grade showed. The second quiz my grade went up a little more, and during that time I did take the time to read some, but not all chapters.
