I never really took school seriously, I never even dreamt of being a college student, I wasn’t motivated. That was until, I saw that my parents were struggling financially and then filed for a divorce. Every time things got hard, both my mom and dad would tell me to “Focus, take school serious so that you can be successful and help us in the future”. Those words were my call to adventure. That was my motivation, that made me graduate high school and enroll myself at College of Saint Elizabeth.
I’m not particularly good at anything outside of my studies and if I can’t attain high grades, then I’m pretty much useless. I would be more lost than I already am, since only real goal throughout my life has been to get good grades. It’s a double-edged sword in my life. Grades are the reason for my stress since I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my work, but maintaining high grades is pretty much the only goal I have right now. If I didn’t have the goal to maintain high grades, I would just be lazing around doing nothing with my life.
He enrolled and completed his undergraduate degree while employed full time at SAAF. He is well-trained, ambitious, open-minded, and humble. He brings with him real world experience, that I believe will be of great support to himself and his peers throughout the duration of the program. In knowing what I know about the environment, methods, and services at Arizona State University, I believe this site and program are a perfect fit for Abraham, but also believe he will be successful wherever he ends up attending graduate school. He will be a committed student and a proficient
Now being at Rowan University I enjoy my profession and practice course as well as my life span development course. All three professors did not make the course dreading with meaningless homework. They would make sure you studied exactly what you needed to study, they gave you assignments that would help you with your career goals, the professors made the course a course that you can say you enjoyed and took something from it. So attending grad school is something that I find will be useful so I can be exactly where I need to be and gain all the experience and then some before working the youth. As you can see I always had a passion for working with children ever since I was young which is why my future goals are to build my own recreation center for kids eight to eighteen which will be called “Kinship Unity”.
I have made a promise to myself that I would work hard when I can, keep my grades up in school, practice hard topics, and study daily. Whenever I have an idea, or imagine something in my mind, I write it down or change it. As a person, I chose this path because I really wanted to go through it. I am proud to have accomplished many of my goals. I hope to learn more about the career I want and fulfill many of my goals.
I began as a nursing major, but after spending a summer working with children, I changed my major to education. I got my undergraduate and graduate education degrees from University of North Texas in Denton, Texas. I have loved teaching so much that I’ve gone back to school to add new certifications and have taught everything from 1st grade to college! The influence of my parents and brothers, though always present, has been displaced by that of the family I have helped to create for myself. My husband and I have four children who bring us much joy and many challenges.
This quote reflects one of the important ideas that I have learned in this class. In the past, I typically thought of happiness as only an emotion. I never thought of how essential happiness would be to live an excellent life, let alone my health. However, as I continued to attend this class, I realized how important happiness was. I am sure plenty of you all have felt this, having to wake up early in the morning to trek to school to at 7:00 AM for a seemingly useless class.
My passion for nursing and perseverance to be the best nurse I can possibly be has been the key to my success. I remember the first nursing test I ever took in my Health Assessment class and I received a “C”. I told myself that I would not make a pattern of this and I had set a goal of getting an A in the class. I not only received an “A” in that class but I also earned an “A” on the cumulative final exam. At that point, I felt that I would never be satisfied until I achieve a 100% on every
Who is to say that failure cannot ultimately lead you to success? Most people fail at some point in their lives, and they have to generally fail at something before they can ultimately reach success, even though failure can be defined as a lack of success. A person fails because they did not adequately prepare for success. As a sophomore in high school, one of the high school courses that I was required to take was American Literature and Writing. I did not have myself signed up for any of the AP classes offered, so I lacked familiarity with the struggles a typical student endures while they are taking an AP class, but all I knew was that the school year of 2015-2016 was personally successful for me.
For the past three years I have dedicated myself to my education, making sure to attend every lecture regardless of the weather, my health, or my ever growing exhaustion level. I have become consumed with the concept of success, and failure is just not an option. Although things have not always been this way for me personally. I am passionate about school because I discovered social work, a blessing in disguise. My first semester of college I enrolled in a community college with my major listed as “General studies” because it sounds better than “Undecided.” I was straight out of a high school of less than 400 students and I was utterly clueless, and at the end of the semester my GPA reflected it.
Hi Professor Fernandez, This is Kim Phuong Nguyen. I took your Chemistry 110 course Spring 2015 and I found it to be one of the most enjoyable courses I have ever taken. You may not remember me, as I often came into lab on Mondays when you were there. Chemistry has always been a more challenging course for me, but I was very proud of that A I received from your class. I know that you are a busy professor, so I will just get straight to the point.
Returning to college has been an exciting and terrifying decision for me. My husband has encouraged me for 1-2 years, but my fear of failure overwhelmed me and kept me from pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree. I wasn’t even sure what I wanted to pursue. I’m now on this journey and ready for whatever it is that God has planned for me. I have worked hard encouraged my three kids as they transitioned their way through elementary school through middle school and on to high school and graduation.
My grades and behavior were the main reasons I was on the border of not graduating. I was so focused on others that I never realized I let myself go. Graduating eighth grade helped prove to myself that I was not a failure and every step I took was only closer to being successful. Graduation year came faster than ever, I started to lose my outstanding grades and started to feel satisfied with low percentages as long as I was passing. It was my last year and all I wanted to do was have fun.
Receiving college for free through the ECHS program and having the opportunity to emerge from high school with an Associate degree is the motivation for why I will be attending college throughout high school, I am extremely grateful and lucky to have the opportunity to attend college in high school as not all are as fortunate. Completing the college program means I will have my core classes done, therefore once I accomplish my goal I will be able to concentrate the majority of my time on my major. I expect to become better educated from this experience and understand the world around me clearer. Beginning college is one of the utmost significant decisions that will impact my life forever and to be completely truthful, I am extremely nervous
Perfect Student Of Garber High Garber High was a life changing experience for some of us. It was challenging. There was no talking back to teachers, no “getting out of class just cause”, nothing. Garber high had many clubs available to join such as: NHS (National Honor Society), SLS (Students Leading Students), Student Council, etc. If being apart of those clubs was us, they thought highly of you.
