I immediately knew that forensics was what I wanted to do, but I still had so much to learn about the field of study. My sophomore year of high school in my civics class I realized that I also had a passion for law. This led to me meeting with my school’s career counselor and my civics teacher to try and figure which one I should choose. Kerri Loury, my guidance counselor, advised me to join Wayne County’s Teen Court program my junior year and after meeting with several people who worked in both law and forensics I discovered that I could do both. I quickly scrambled to find out how I could go about doing both and I talked with several people who work for Wayne County to plan out my career path.
Hello I 'm Michael Mandich and this is my first year in help desk and my second year at NHS. I enjoy learning to hanging out with friends and playing games online. The reason I joined Help Desk is because I am interested in learning about technology and how it is rapidly changing the world of education. The way I sparked my interest in technology was when I was younger I would disassemble computers, despite the fact that I had no idea what any of it did I would take it apart and put into small piles of components I would probably never use again. What was really important to me was learning about what I was doing.
I dabbled in a little bit of everything during school, but my affinity for technology persisted from my childhood. Building computers from scratch, writing my own code, blogging, photography, competitive gaming, and selling digital art for commission set me apart from my peers. In the era before “social media star” was considered a desirable job for many my age, I felt like an odd one out, especially when faced with the subconscious sexism of the stem field. It must’ve been hard for the ignorant students to see me in my frilly freshman dance team outfit showing up to audio visual production class, because I could feel it in every interaction with them. Condescending tones, harsh glances, and judgement prevented me from becoming friends with many who shared the same interests as me.
Through examination of the previous sophomores’ advice and my own predictions of the year to come, I have formulated a definitive set of goals I would like to accomplish in Algebra II Honors this year. Looking back at my past year in Geometry Honors, I have recognized many improvements I need to make to my personal studying habits to reach my full potential and excel in this course. Last year, I was slow to ask for help, many times waiting until it was too late to come to my teacher and ask them to explain the concepts on which I was still a bit fuzzy. This year I am making it one of my personal goals to work harder to fully comprehend the mathematical concepts and ask for assistance as soon as I start noticing a problem. I also would like to make it a goal to stay much more organized this
Last spring semester, I took GOVT 2305 - the Federal Government- and found myself involved in discussions and debates. I immediately registered for the next government class and thought it would be another interesting class. Not many students have an opportunity to study government during the most intense and exciting time in America - the presidential race. Considering it is an Honors class, I thought it would be a challenge with many assignments and exams that are due weekly. By taking my academic progress to a new level, I wanted to challenge my time-management skill and improve my writing skill; I also want to get a special recognition from the Honors institution on my transcript and separate myself from other students.
Only having had the perspective of a student, it was reassuring to see educators seeing a problem and actively seeking a way to fix the problem. Though testing is necessary with the current structure of evaluating students, there is a conscience effort to improve schooling for students. Hoping to stay teaching in Eastern Washington, I am excited to see teachers setting the foundation for change. I hope that I have the opportunity to not only help my students inside the classroom but also in a more political way that will help students that I am not teaching. Like many things that I’ve experienced in these last ten weeks of class, my thoughts on education have definitely been
I will learn the basics and fundamentals of coding, so I can go into a class and apply it. Second place is to take a computer science class at UNCC to get the experience. This is where I will learn how to code from teachers and use the lab to apply my studies and notes on there. Others should be open to learn how to code because technology is evolving and will be with us for a long time. We need people to program a device or piece of technology so it can go do things and function properly.
When we taught together I do recall her having a heavy focus on vocabulary in her science class. She developed a vocabulary game called, “Last Man Standing” to help the kids not only understand vocabulary words, but also the parts of words. I always saw the positive impact it had on students’ success, but never understood why she had such a heavy focus on it. After our interview I now understand the why and it makes perfectly good sense. I then began to wonder what strategies could we, as a school, provide for our parents to help them support their child’s vocabulary development?
I reached this GPA by working hard in subjects that were difficult to me such as mathematics and working with my teachers pass the class. So I ask this committee to understand my GPA and to admit me into the program either fully or provisional to show that I can do the work. I love simulation and modeling
I sincerely would love to be a part of the computer science program here at Texas A&M University and feel qualified with my background in computers and various programming languages. I have been working to be the best student I can for this program by participating in coding activities and competitions like Hack TAMU, Hack Texas, Code Red, and some others. Along with that, I have been attending informative seminars like the Google Tech Talks and Resume Workshops hosted here at A&M to learn and help pursue my career related goals in the future. Also, I have become more involved with the Aggie Computing Society to network and attended informative meetings. I feel that I have proven my knowledge, ability to code, and ability to problem solve
