Even if these students entered these classes they had a probability that they wouldn’t have a teacher for that course. “Out of the 180 teacher-slots, typically 25 or so cannot be filled and have to be assigned to substitutes” and that is for the spots the school cannot fill, furthermore some teachers didn’t even show up for class at all they the students would have at least a sub everyday. After attending a teacher meeting Jonathan noticed that the students didn’t pick the classes they wanted to take they just put in classes until they filled up and than move on to a different class. The library was closed for almost a quarter of the year every year because of testing or other stuff that being said the students
Why I describe that period time as a torture? The reason was I suffered school-bulling and teasing in the first month. At that time, my English was very poor, so I can barely write a few short paragraphs and read some short article. Also, I was shy, and very scared to talk to people. That was the first month in my high school, in a Language and Arts class.
When I first started Unity high school I was nervous high school was going to be rough and hard to make friends but I 've been enjoying high school so far in freshman year. The biggest fear for me in high school was that there were going to be little bit of people to hang out with. This freshman year I have not joined any clubs but sophomore year I would consider joining clubs. This freshman year I don 't think I 've changed much from middle school but I have learned many things this year. When I had my first day at Unity High School I had a feeling that It was going to be rough for me and it would be hard to learn things but so far it 's been going well nothing has really changed from eighth grade.
For the first year, I stayed in contact with my friends through Facebook and we would meet up once in awhile for playdates and birthday parties, but it would not last. Eventually, after a couple of years, I became more and more engulfed in my new circle of friends in public school. As a result, I grew more distant with my old Schechter friends and would only see them a handful of times a year. Fast forward seven years later, I’m a senior in high school and I’m at the point where I see them close to
My sophomore year however I made some great friendships with guys on the cross-country team. I had never really been close to an upperclassman either, but that year my best guy friend was a senior. I never knew what it was like for a friend to just leave and go to college. At the end of my sophomore year I would lose one of my best freinds to college and that affected me greatly. It affected not only my running but also my outlook who to make friends with because upperclassman would all eventually leave me.
Not going to college was not an option for me, but I simply did not think I was the type of student who went to community college. I faced an identity crisis unlike one I had never known. Why did I spend my entire high school career taking solely AP and honors coursework only to end up staying in my hometown while all my classmates all got to go to four year universities? Seventeen year old me thought this was truly the worst thing that could have ever happened to me, but reflecting on that time, it truly was
When I started school, I got to meet English-speaking Latinos who helped me immerse in this new culture. It was a challenge to memorize words in English; it was like starting to write with my left hand. Despite all of this, I always kept focused, and this helped me discover the real meaning of perseverance. When I started high school, I began as an English Language Development student, and earned high grades. My junior year, I petitioned to be switched to regular classes.
The Transition C/Kusakavitch “Your life is a story of transition. You are always leaving one chapter behind while moving on to the next” – Anonymous. As I finished my first year of ROTC and began the second, I realized definite changes in myself as an AFROTC cadet. As I began my second year of ROTC I was less nervous and more confident. I had gained friendships and maintained bonds with the fellow cadets throughout my first year that carried over into the beginning of the second.
When working through the simulation, my avatar formed a close friendship with a fellow college student, and the choices I made brought us together. We subsequently possessed many of the previously mentioned qualities in our friendship. Another life changing decision in early adulthood is one’s stance on romantic relationships and marriage. I found myself selecting options that had me focusing on school and work, but not completely shutting down the possibility of finding love. When my avatar started dating, it developed slowly over the course of a year or so, after the initial two stages, the stimulus stage and the value stage, we began to talk about marriage (Feldman, 2015).
The class had many after school teams such as rifle team, drill, and raiders. I hadn 't joined any of the teams and because of that I was looked down upon by upperclassmen and others who had joined those teams. In the period I was in, almost every freshman would grow up to be great leaders for our school and for the JROTC program. As for me I could care less and decided only on passing my classes and didn 't care about being active in my school and for that I hadn 't made much friends in the JROTC program almost like an outcast, but that also went for any other kid
I attended classes regularly, but lacked in effort and ended up barely passing or failing most of my classes. At the end of my junior year I even heavily considered dropping out for online school. I left my own home, and was living with my aunt and uncle for six months. I got kicked out of football, my favorite hobby. In April of my junior year, this all changed.
It wasn’t exactly a concrete decision, but it was something that I had readily accepted as a fact. I later learned that I was actually supposed to go to another school in the district, but I remained resolute. When the school year began, I entered 8th grade at a local K-8 charter school. Moving to a new school is hard for anybody, but going into a smaller school with social anxiety disorder felt like a death sentence. Everyone there had been with each other for years, and on top of that, I had
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.
During high school, the biggest obstacle I faced was the extent of the classes and resources offered to me, or lack thereof. Growing up in a rural town with a small high school meant I missed out on many opportunities students in urban areas were offered. For example, I did not have the option to take classes to prepare for going to University, or training involving my major interest of political science. There were no Advanced Placement (AP) or Honors courses offered in some of the common subjects like World History or Civics/Economics. While I was disappointed that I did not get important opportunities like AP, I understood that this was a trade off of living in a small, supportive community, and I accepted this fact.
