Through my relentless hard work and perseverance, I believe that I possess the four characteristics of a National Honor Society member- leadership, service, character, and scholarship. Acquiring leadership skills along with a strong character and the sense to serve others is vital. A leader should be resourceful, dependable, selfless, and a good problem solver. I have led in many ways- inside and outside of school. Last year as a tenth grader, I was class secretary for Class Council.
A few fundraising events in which our council has carried out include a Tie-Dye booth, countless bake sales, raffles, and the Color Fest. In addition to Student Council, I am responsible and dependable as a student and fellow peer. However, the reason why I feel I need to improve my leadership is because I need to demonstrate more leadership within the classroom. I will do this by speaking up more, offering opinions, giving feedback to the teachers on common issues all the students are facing, and so
Sophomore year my friends and I formed the Supporting Minority Students’ club in an efforts to discuss issues of diversity and minority politics while serving as a support group for the small minority population (especially the current 1.6% African American population) at our school. As the secretary, marketing manager and web designer, I make all the promotional posters, announcements, schedules and contest along with creating and updating the club website. After attending a multitude of, volunteering events, club fairs,showcases, orientations, and meetings we finally were able to gain recognition at school and amongst administrators. Our club helped to influence the creation of a school diversity council and diversity day to bring more awareness to the
As each individual has different goals, realizing that work will have happen is what creates success. For the teaching application for the Salt in His Shoes, I would use the idea of family values to create a lesson. This book highlights the support from each family member and the importance of each individual. To apply this concept for my student I would have each student use a basketball drawing to create an individual ball of values. The students would write in each open area an important family value, such as love, support, thoughtfulness, and honesty.
Hi Peeps, Today 's Quote "I enjoy learning, listening, thinkings, growing, chewing, processing, and crunching God 's Biblical Data to then scientifically study how truthful this information exist and works in my heart, mind, body, and soul, which clearly describes and musically pictures how the cogs of habitat work together in our world for our Good!" ~Jon Barnes Learning I personally discovered my chemical balance and optimal state of learning and competing with myself, during a music competition in middle school, with my teacher Dave Hariston. He said, eat a big breakfast and come to school ready to win this competition. It turns out for me that my belly was full but my mind was asleep, like I had been drugged. I couldn 't
I try to be involved in anything I can to help the school, from being an active member of the tennis team, volunteering at several locations to give back to the world, and being apart of REBEL to help spread awareness and guide people to make better decisions. I believe that I would be an asset to the society because I always bring a positive attitude, always work hard to achieve my goals. I make every effort to assist my fellow students to do their best and will be a very dedicated person to any scenario National Honor Society brings in my pathway to
I believe leadership can be represented by both an individual or a group. This year I was chosen to be captain for both basketball and football cheerleading. Because I was captain, I had to lead the other cheerleaders by teaching underclassmen the cheers, choosing which cheers we did, and arranging practices for the team. I not only find myself as a great leader in cheerleading, I also find myself to be a great leader in track. Because I start so many events, I am always staying after practice to practice starting blocks.
Mentoring younger students during my lunch times in chemistry, taking part in speeches with the debating society in school, captaining the school 2nd hockey team, as well as house cricket team and representing local cricket team in the regional and national competition, winning numerous trophies and medals, playing tennis and going to the gym regularly, I have the art of time management, leadership qualities and organisational skills. I feel these interpersonal skills are essential and will be a great asset as I train to become a doctor. My passion and resolve to pursue a career in medicine is not a starry eyed one, but grounded in real life and based on in depth consideration. I believe that my enthusiasm and drive along with my experiences have equipped me with skills necessary to be resilient in the face of challenge and to relish any difficulties. Furthermore appreciate the opportunities that come alongside being a doctor in the evolving field of
I have had a wonderful experience observing at Buffalo Creek Middle School so far. The teacher is excellent with her students and uses various activities to get the kids involved. One activity that was used multiple times over the two days that I was there was: Think, Pair, Share. The teacher would write a math question up on the board that went along with whatever topic they were going over that day and then she would ask the students to try to solve the equation. After everyone seemed to be finished solving the equation, it was time to pair up.
I led a team of fellow students in a science and engineering challenge competing against several other schools in South Derbyshire. On top of winning first prize I was also awarded a Silver CREST award as recognition for the time and effort that I dedicated to the project. As well as being a prefect I was given a role in the pupil leadership team working closely with the senior leadership team helping to bridge the communication gap between pupils and faculty. Additionally I volunteered to be a games maker at the Derbyshire school games. I worked with other volunteers to deliver coached sessions of boccia to children with learning disabilities, which was an extremely gratifying
I gave back to my scouting community by taking the place of the older scouts and help lead the troop, guiding the younger scouts on their journeys to Eagle in the same manner as the older scout did with me. I also learned about the importance of volunteer work. I volunteer at the public library, and would help out in the afterschool “Math Lab”, tutoring students struggling with understanding what they were learning in their math classes. To this end, I live by the Boy Scout slogan: “do a good turn
Character is a culmination of traits that make up a well-rounded person, such as being altruistic or possessing comradeship. Examples of both my character and ability to serve present themselves in Color Guard and Softball. Leadership is present in the two years I served as captain of the Black History Quiz Bowl. My duties included motivating my team and helping them study while simultaneously memorizing my own information and being the official spokesperson for the team. Being captain required me to help my team after hours as well as provide insight on to them on how best to prepare for the competition.
After summer break, I returned to Westlake High School for my junior year, feeling as if something was missing. The decision to spearhead the creation of a chapter of the Science National Honor Society (SNHS) at my school arose because of my desire to establish a niche where high school students could express their shared passion for the sciences. The SNHS would provide enlightening scientific activities and opportunities for students, and the Science club would serve as a path to introduce members into the society. I initially proposed the creation of the society in a meeting with the Principal and Board of Education. Quite a few obstacles had to be overcome to start a new organization in the school.
I have developed leadership qualities when my Tae Kwon Do coach trusted me to lead our team during national championships. This has led me to then hold various leadership positions in undergraduate and dental school clubs. Moreover, my critical thinking abilities have excelled from being a mathematics and physics tutor. Tutoring has always challenged me to think outside the box in complicated problems, and this would allow me to use my creative skills when facing complex cases in my field. Persistence is another key element that is crucial in success.
