Dr. Moorer states, "Like many of us, I thought I could fix my own problems." My academic achievement led me to believe I was smart enough for the streets. I loss what I learned and worked hard for and found myself in another foster home. I was confused and delusional to believe I could handle both school and the streets. I missed school, my grades declined and I lost interest.
This was by far the most difficult challenge I faced in connecting with my students. While students became pretty eager to attend the FIG session throughout the semester, they were not as enthusiastic about doing things outside of the class. The first event I tried to organize was a study session in preparation for the first round of midterms. I chose a location that was very central to where many of them lived and on a day of the week that they said was best. Throughout the week, I constantly reminded them about the study group session, however, on the day of the event, I sadly only had two students attend.
Cheerleading has helped me grow as a person, and has helped me become more confident in myself. I could never imagine my life without the sport of cheerleading. Cheer has taught me not only determination, but how to balance everything, from school to managing high grades. I decided to join my first allstar cheerleading team, at Midwest Cheer Elite, in 2012. When I first joined, I based on a youth level 2 team, and with the help of my coaches and supportive athletes, I was able to fly on a senior 5 team, my last year.
Due to intense five-hour weekend practices and other improvements, we have reached new grounds this year. For the first time in sixteen years, our school's team was able to advance to the third round of the regional Mock Trial competition. Although Mock Trial requires a huge amount of work and dedication, the final result is well worth it. After spending many hours with the team, I can confidently assert that everyone supports each other. After all, unity is
Cheerleading Tryouts We had cheerleading tryouts at the end of last year. It was one of the most stressful times of my life. One of my biggest dreams was to become a cheerleader. Before cheerleading began I had more free time, played other sports, and spent more time with my family. During the week of tryouts we practiced right after school from 3:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M.
One of my dreams is to be part of The National Honors Society and be part of the family; I am already part of The Spanish Language Honors Society and want to further build upon my academic career. I have demonstrated leadership, service, character, and scholarship and I hope to be inducted into the society. Even after I get inducted into the society, I will continue to volunteer in my society; as of this summer, I hope to be volunteering at Atlanticare. Volunteering in my community has been a great experience and I can not wait to extend it with a new chapter of my High School career. I am beyond thankful for being part of the first chapter of The National Honors Society and hope you will consider my
Knowing I had more potential, I pushed myself even further and my talents were recognized by the new coach my senior year. I achieved my goal of starting every game and played a majority of the eighty minutes of regulation time. My determination to get better and overcome my obstacles paid off my senior year when I awarded second-team
I learned quicker than others and was more intellectual than they were and because of these things I never really had friends. I passed all my classes with A’s or B’s. My grade average was high and I was prepping for college courses. My family had been telling me of all the great things I could do but never prepared me for the hard times to actually achieve any of these goals. During my summer break of 2011, I broke my ankle on father’s day.
I struggled a lot in my math classes, I think because when I first moved to Lake hamilton I was behind on my multiplication skills, because at my other school we hadn 't learned them yet. But for the rest of my school years at Lake Hamilton it has been awesome. I have been making good grades since the 9th grade, I started trying really hard and I think school got more easier because we got more freedom. I think that the main difference between Lake Hamilton, and my last school
I was discriminated, teased, and treated wrong for being an Asian who did not speak English. When I was a ninth grade student, I was awarded from my high school for earning good grades. When I brought it back home and showed it to my parents, they did not know what it was and I found it in a recycle bin the next day. I started to lose my motive for studying and began to hate school. My grades dropped significantly for years.
It has been about a year since I first met Winn Dixie. I started going to school, and Stevie and Dunlap are both in my class. Dunlap is fine, but Stevie is not. He always gets me into trouble. Because of that, I don’t think I will get the student of the year award.
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
This field trip was a way of celebrating that we all achieved a good academic year at school. I really like that my school rewarded us for doing well in our classes, but they did it at the end of the year for a grand finally of the school year. I believe at the end of that year was when I started being a good student. I found out how important it was to get good grades. As soon as everybody was on the bus we started our trip to Six
I took her advice, and at the beginning of my freshman year, I joined my high school’s student council association. I naturally loved competition, so I ran for an officer position for my grade. I didn’t win the election, but I kept trying each year until I was elected class secretary my junior year. That year I was also the student council representative for my state. The leadership positions required a lot of work.
