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.
Although my mentee is different than me in some ways, we have found various ways to connect on other subjects. I have helped my mentee go from making C’s in all of her classes, to now being an honor roll student. We’ve worked each session on study skills, time management and organization. It has been so rewarding seeing her achieve all of her goals she has set for herself at the beginning of the year. Also, aside from grades and school my mentee struggles from a lot of changes that happens in their home.
When my friend recommended that I should be a part of the team, I did research on what the team did in the college community and instantly wanted to be a part of this ground-breaking team. I feel like communication skills and being comfortable with many views are both great necessary qualities to have when dealing with a diverse college campus. I am very open minded and respect other people’s views even though they might not agree with my views. I possess great social skills and find myself very personable. I get along well with multiple different people which I think would be a great addition to the counseling team.
Along with many friends that helped me get through rough times to make me the person I am today. My family for sure, plays the biggest part in shaping of who I am today. Growing up wasn’t always smooth sailing, I often was influenced by many negative people that tried and guide me in the wrong direction;however, my family members were the ones that never seized to stop improving me. During the peak of my junior year when all the algebra, physics, history, and english classes were piling up in enormous numbers and were causing me to stress and
I am honored to be amongst the meritorious students who are being considered for induction into the National Honors Society. Being an active member of this society has been something I have been looking forward to since middle school; having previous family members inducted, I regard acceptance to it a goal I must accomplish. I would be honored to be a member of this society which is known for benefiting others. These limitless opportunities of contributing to my community will help me grow as a person which will undoubtedly help me in my future career in the medical field and leave an impact on my fellow community members. The National Honors Society is an important organization made up of students who demonstrate leadership, service, character,
It is an honor to not only have the chance to view others art and help engage the community with these events, but I am also pleased to say that last spring quarter one of my digital art pieces were chosen to be presented as well. Having my art viewed by others in the art gallery was very exciting, and I will continue use my art as a way to communicate to my community.
Coming to middle school was scary at first I didn’t think I would be able to get to my classes on time or know where they were. But I had some of my friends to help me through it. And as the year went by my classes got a little harder. As the year progressed, I found new ways to get to class faster so I wasn’t always late. This new school opened me up and tested my ability to deal with people.
A lot of times I would go into work at seven in the morning and wouldn’t leave until ten at night. There were instances where I worked twenty-four hours. Those were the worst days, but I made it through and it helped make the time go by. I didn’t really have much time for a girlfriend. I had a girlfriend in the beginning but it didn’t work out due to a lot of reasons.
I would recommend it to anyone thinking about transferring. It was beneficial to me and I learned new things about schools I’ve already been to. The transfer fair was a great experience for me and I am glad that I was able to attend
You would think it’s helping with their situation, that it’s changing their perspective while helping them find ways it could have been solved, but some kids don’t think of the solution in the blink of an eye. When kids get suspended, all they’re thinking about is a few days off from school. But not anymore, even though some kids may rethink the dilemma they had gotten themselves into, most of the times that’s not the case. Here are a few things that happen when we suspend kids, and a few things that would be helpful instead of suspending these children. When children are suspended over and over, they are most likely to drop out.
