When I was in MacCracken middle school, I always wondered what it would be like when I went to Spartanburg high. I kind of wished someone would have told me what high school would be like. Now that I have been here for a year and a half, it is not that hard. I have managed to learn not only a lot in class but also a lot about Spartanburg High School and its people. Friendships and reasonability are areas that I think students in the eighth- grade student should know before they arrive.
From there she worked as a computer literacy teacher for 8th graders . 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 .
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.
Lots of people say that middle school is hard, has lots of responsibilities and you have to be on time for everything. Then I thought there weren 't serious till I actually went to middle school myself. Soon after elementary I went to a middle school that I went to was called Lincoln middle school, it wasn’t a big school, but it was a decent school. When I first went into that building I was excited to make new friends and meet my teacher, but then this lady that was the 6th grade dean(consular) gave me this piece of paper that had many classes on it and I ask her “why there are so many classes?” she says “Because that how middle school works”.After words I went to my first class which was math and the math teacher told me and the class that
Throughout middle school and my first 2 years in high school, I’ve gotten mainly As in my classes with an occasional B here and there. So in my junior year of high school, when I heard that I can take more than 1 AP course, I immediately wanted to challenge myself. I registered for 4 AP courses along with orchestra, and spanish on top of my extracurriculars. “Are you trying to kill yourself?” is what all my friends asked when I told them about my plan. Their worries only fueled my urge to continue with this difficult challenge.
During my elementary school time, I had learned that this world is full of competition and you have to act out in order to stand a chance. I was quite intelligent in my classes, especially on the subject of mathematics. While I thought nothing of it,as I was bullied for that reason, my teachers saw it differently. Then, during the 4th grade, my teacher, Mr.Green, had asked me if I would like to join the school’s math field day team. At first, I wasn’t so sure, but after a few days, I was now a part of my school’s math field day team, along my twin brother, Anthony.
When it comes to learning about history, students aren’t always excited to learn about the past and memorize important dates. When I was in high school, I wasn’t too enthusiastic to learn about our history. It wasn’t until I had my teacher, Ms. Diana Guerra, that showed me just how amazing the past can be. As a student who wants to pursue in education and possibly teach history, I took the opportunity to interview Ms. Guerra at Harlingen High School (HHS) to find out if this is something I would like to continue doing. After having a very exciting face-to-face interview in Ms. Guerra’s classroom I was able to realize that being a high school teacher isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.
The National Honors Society has been a constant but distant presence in my life ever since I was in middle school. Every once in awhile, teachers would mention our GPAs and tell us to keep them up if we wanted to be accepted into NHS, or they would attempt to coax us into behaving better by telling us that the National Honors Society frowned upon our current behavior. Back then, NHS was a prospective part of my future, and I didn’t worry too much about preparing. In my first two years of high school, I watched my fellow students in NHS work to keep up their grades up and to meet the volunteer requirements. I watched them and waited my turn to join them, because after learning what the National Honors Society really was and what it stood for,
At 13 years of age, I was on my second year in middle school, excited to graduate and go through high school. I was surprisingly good at all the other subject except math. I hated it to the point of skipping the day that I will have a math class which fortunately was not every day. One day, my father came across my report card and he found out I had a C in my algebra class. I was grounded for a week straight with tutorial after school every single day and he sent me to an academy on Saturday that taught me computer math at Rice University.
it was because of this fire i had to be better that I reached out to teachers and mentors I felt I had in my corner wanting my success. The teacher that I had sought out most often was Ms. Scattergood, an English teacher whom I had never actually had, except for during the two-week transition program Sidwell offered to all new ninth graders. Ms. Scattergood helped me with my subpar organization skills and my lack of self-advocation in order to be able to get assignments turned in by their deadlines and schedule time to meet with teachers. After trying to change my study habits and staying more attentive in class, i learned which tendencies i needed to learn to get ahead and which ones i needed to leave behind. It 's these tendencies which i believe will let me enter college with the upper hand relative to my peers, because while others may have been successful in their schools, they may not have had to garner the skills to achieve said success at a higher level with less support, as i had to.
Grandfather taught Sookan, in private, about their religion and gave her a lesson almost everyday. Sookan changed because she was now learning new stuff and had to take care of herself when she got beat. Since it was the first day she had ever gone to school, she did many things wrong. Each time she did the something wrong her teacher would punish her. At the very end she even got
At Calvin Coolidge Elementary School, advanced math class started in fourth grade. I have been put into the higher math courses ever since then. Once I got to seventh grade, I was put into pre- algebra honors and in eighth grade I was placed in algebra honors. I have never had below a B in math ever which shows that I am a hard worker and I aim to do well in school. Dwight D. Eisenhower Middle School has prepared me for hard problems that I may face in High School, and I know that I am adjusted to go above and beyond in this school.
Me and my mom had to go to kealakehe school to see what I need for me to get in this class and they told me that I needed a state ID. I went to the DMV and I got my ID they I was registered for the GED. After waiting for couple weeks I have to take a test for math and readying to see what class I 'm supposed to be in because there was different level of classes. But as I was euphoric of doing what I can do to get my GED I was most likely over getting that GED because the person that had my case had no chance of answering my phone calls an I wasn 't moving anywhere with my education but I ended up going back for a little while then just never go after that I ended up staying home the rest of that school year. As summer came I wanted to make right choices so I decided to call the school and ask for the regaitor and I asked what I can do for me to make my credits up for my junior year and she told me that there where correspondence classes I can take but it costed money but for me an my family had put money into the corresponding classes and I got it an I have and I 'm trying to finish it so I can walk the line.
I always needed more attention when it came to that subject. My parents remember me having issues with math and falling behind in math class. My parents told me about how my third grade teacher Mrs.Pedraza called home and expressed her concern. I remember my dad went to walgreens that night and bought me flashcards and a white board. Everyday I came home from school and worked on my math homework.
This program appointed me to a counselor who would check my progress in class on a weekly basis. This gave me the opportunity to ask questions regarding any subject in school. My personal counselor not only helped me to learn English, but she also helped me to become more confident in myself. She challenged me to try new things in school and to make new friends. She never doubted my abilities to succeed in school and constantly supported me.
