During middle school, I have grown into a more mature person. This is evident in three primary ways: I have become more of a self advocate; I have gained more self respect and I have taken on more responsibility. As I have matured, I have gained the confidence to become a self advocate. During school, I speak my mind and ask various questions if I am confused. Not to mention, I also seek out advice if I am feeling confused with any of my school work. It is important to state your opinions and ask questions because no one will know if you feel confused or overwhelmed in your work. I speak up for myself if I feel something is not right. I am a self advocate not only at school, but wherever I go. At school, I speak up when I need to, but socially I speak up too. When I am around my friends, I still make my own decisions and speak my mind even when

So life had to drastically transition from me being a lax sophomore that depended on my parents to plan everything for me and keep me in check for school work to living on my own and not having that sturdy support. At this school when I was learning to become an independent individual I had many opportunities to work on my time management and scheduling, and I had to learn how to get over my emotions on my own as a teenager with no parent or sibling to express these feeling to. Also through this whole school experience I had to have relationships with my teachers independently be able to figure out compromises and create bonds with them, without the help of parents and keeping a handle on my

The transition from middle school to high school is what shaped me the most and this adjustment has changed me in both good and bad ways. As a freshman, I enrolled in a private school, called Bridgemont High School. It was a very small school and did not have the same help as the public schools offered. I didn 't have an ELD class and classes providing extra help were limited. Eld means einglish language development, these classes are classes to help develop your english speaking skills even though i can speak english i had poor grammar.
Both High Schools and Middle school are tailored towards giving their students the knowledge that they need to learn. The physical environments, as well as the organizational routines, tends to be very similar, yet the feeling and psychological backdrop differs.

The size of the school is changed drastically. You need to come to the reality that you are surrounded by peoples who are four years older than you, adults.
Sophomore year, I learned more about hard work than ever in my life so far. I doubled up in science, I was constantly bogged down by copious English assignments, and my basketball coach pushed me further than anyone had ever before. I made a lot of bittersweet memories in the hot, musty OAC that winter during those practices. Junior year was an absolute blur. I made an effort to engage in my friendships and learn more about the people around me.
By the time I entered middle school, I had greatly improved my English speaking, reading, and writing. I learned to embrace my accent, and take pride in my Hispanic heritage. I still can't believe how much I have grown as a person in the last 9 years. The struggles that I endured growing up, strengthened and prepared me for the future challenges I am yet to face. I will be a first-generation college student next fall, and I know that I will be successful because I have always been able to overcome the obstacles I face.
Growing up, I don’t mean anything like my body grew, but what I mean is that I started to think a bit more mature than I was before. There was one saying that my mother often told me every time I got bad grades at school “It’s okay. You tried your hardest. I know you will try harder next time” (in indonesian language).
A huge number of kids that are going on to junior Think the won’t be able to survive, most of them are scared to come because they fear that they won’t have enough time between classes, Not opening your locker, and lastly they fear that they will be squashed or pushed by the 8th graders!

Now that I am in middle school I’m smarter, more mature and I am older. I am 12 now and my parents expect more from me now,which makes sense I am no longer in elementary school. Now that I am 12 if I do something “dumb” that “dumb” thing might result in something worse than it would if I was 10 or 11.
The first day of middle school for me was both terrifying and exciting. I made a lot of new friends within the year. I remember the first day very well. I had woke up at 5;30 a.m. I was extremely tired.
Seventh grade was awesome. School was still easy, and every Saturday morning I had a Bar-Mitzvah party to attend. Seventh grade was also really difficult. During fun Bar-Mitzvah parties I forced a smile; the ground was shaking from the music and the stomping of people dancing but I was stuck in my own head sitting at a table alone.
High school has impacted my life in so many ways. High School taught me so many things, from personal relationships to creating a relationship with my education. As a freshman, I made a huge amount of mistakes and I regret doing foolish things, but I’ve realized, I was only maturing into the young adult I am today. Freshman year, I was out of focus and I was only trying to find myself. I would also prioritize other things and ignore my parent’s advice, where they would tell me to focus in school and give it my full attention.
In the duration of my middle school years, I maintained excellent grades, except I had just one issue that held me back from a satisfying life. That issue was the fact that friends came very hard to me in my middle school years. Before my struggles at my middle school, Trafton, I had a very productive social life in the Elementary school I attended, Roberts Elementary. Here, it was very easy to make friends and have a great social life, since no hard work was required as a kid. Middle school, however, was a great challenge for me.
Kindergarten to 8th grade I attended a private school called Holy Family Catholic School. The school was very small along with classes, teachers extremely strict and hallways always quiet, the totally opposite from Dr. Henry A. Wise. My first day of high school I was very nervous I was not used to big classes, endless amount of students in the halls and the loud ruckus. This was an educational challenge for me because it was a totally different learning environment for me that i had to get used to quickly. My studying habits also challenged me through high school because test and quizzes were given out frequently and if you didn't know how to study you probably wouldn’t get a good grade.
