Senior Reflection The best experience I had at Thousand Oaks High School was having teachers who cared and pushed me to my limit. Mrs. Almenara taught me organizational skills.

Before going to Immaculata, I went to Hillsborough High School. Despite the acclaim the school gets, such as recently being ranked the fourteenth best school in the state of New Jersey, I was extremely miserable for the entirety of the time I went to the school. I had nobody I could talk with within the school, as every student avoided me, and the guidance counselors were more concerned with burying complaints to continue advertising a positive environment. Not even my teachers cared about me, as I would often be ignored when asking questions and I was even skipped over when groups were assigned multiple times. By the end of Sophomore year, I was extremely depressed, and would have no energy to do anything after doing my homework.
While at Nashoba, I have only had a few classes that have caused so much distress as my freshman World History class. I left eighth grade with a huge ego in history, but that was middle school and Mr. Sakellarion’s class was a whole new ballpark. Looking back, I should have dropped to accelerated and gotten an easy a, but my pride and love for that class got the better of me, and my grade. For those of you who were wise enough to stick with accelerated, Mr. Sakellarion’s tests and quizzes caused severe anxiety, breakdowns and stress from most of his students, however the day to day classes made that stress worthwhile.
Transcripts My freshman and sophomore years I did not do so great. Mainly in English, Math, and Science. I believe that I earned those poor grades because I wasn’t trying my hardest in those subjects, and I wasn’t paying attention in those classes. Once my father and grandmother pointed out that my bad grades will affect my future, and my ability to get a decent job I began paying more attention in all my classes, and started trying harder. Although I admit that I messed up in my past years and I have earned some unappealing grades my junior year
Having kids play competitive sports many times contains of middle schoolers developing a poor attitude because they think they 're better than everyone else . Although many people argue that the young teens learn to become a “better sport” , see things differently such as trying hard for what they want. Others argue that teens nowadays don 't known how to have fun, they 'll take things more serious than it needs to be. I will argue that kids who play in competitive sports are more likely to develop a bad attitude in which nobody wants their child to have. My first reason has to deal with the attitude of the parents can tend to lead their teens to acting the same.
This really made me feel down, as just the year before, I was the 2nd overall chair in my class. For a few weeks, my confidence really wavered; However, with the encouragement of some upperclassmen, I eventually decided to move on to the next thing. All-Region, the real deal was only a month away. By using my failure as motivation, I discovered a work-ethic I never knew I had, practicing more than I had before. Every day, I would get back home and the first thing that was on my mind was practicing the trombone.
In the first semester of 9th grade I had a 1.4 GPA and managed to raise it to a 3.57 GPA and I am really proud of myself for that. Attendance In my years in high school I miss a day of school very rarely. I haven 't received any awards in my years for perfect attendance but I was really close too it. I feel like if I miss school I would miss really important information and fall behind so I don 't like missing school that often. Having a good attendance is something I take pride in and will help me in the future with my job.
These were just extra obstacles that were put in my way for reason to benefit at all, considering I was told that junior year was already the hardest year for any high schooler anyway. I was furious yet frightened to see the thing that I value and work for, to be turned against me and everyone else. Across many schools within Jeffco, students all together performed a walk out during school to protest this issue to point. But this walk out was only the beginning of the Jeffco Recall that many teachers, parents, and students supported and carried out throughout the year. And while we did have to compensate for their poor decisionmaking that year, the recall was eventually set forth and finalized at the beginning of my senior year.
Though I was afraid to fail, I convinced myself to enter the Running Start program. This decision was difficult for me because it meant leaving the few friends I had for a place filled with strangers. It meant having to be alone again. However; in my heart, I knew it would lead me to a bright
Many of the students felt the same way, one in particular, Dennis, never thought he would be able to finish high school. Traditional school just wasn’t for him. Now, fast forward __________ years to Elizabeth Forward School District. You know what you would see walking down the halls and in classrooms? Students, lots of students.
In Piper, Kansas a high school teacher, Christine Pelton, failed one-fifth of her biology students on their end of semester project because she found out that they had used the internet to cheat. After the parents of the failed students complained, the Piper School District ordered her to lessen the punishment; Christine Pelton then made the decision to resign in protest. The issue over plagiarism is not just happening in the small town of Piper, Kansas, but it is actually happening all over the nation. Pelton’s actions regarding the issue were justified because the students did actually plagiarize their work which makes them play a part in the bigger issue, the national decline in integrity. Some people claim that Pelton’s punishment was
Rumors can be good or bad. Jesse Singal, in “How to Fight a Rumor,” quotes DiFonzo as saying, “Lots of times people will share a rumor not for their benefit or for the other person’s benefit, but simply because they’re trying to figure out the facts” (514).

Students that had her class were not serious and were close to failing her class, so they spread the rumor that she was a very bad teacher, and the rumor spreads around the whole school. Next semester, I took her class and I found out that she was a very good teacher.
