I also know that it is ok to like kids that you know are really great. I know that all educators constantly make changes to improve the lives of their students. So now I am asking for one more change, a change that is simple but not easy but could cause and astounding change for so many. All I am asking you to do is to stop asking students, “What did you do this time?” Assume that all students are in the right and if they aren’t work towards resolution and not humiliation. Let them know that .you don’t have to fit in “somewhere” to fit in at your own high school.
I feel as though I have changed a lot throughout my high school career so far. I have made new friends, drifted away from others, modified the career path I want to go on, and most importantly I have become closer to myself and have started to do things I feel are best for me. So much has changed in just half of my career at this school and I am very excited to see where the next two years take me. I can’t even imagine where else I will go in life but I will try my best to make it great. I have many amazing people in my life that push me to do what they know I can and want me to do what makes me happy.
Middle school is a very different time, a time to start discovering yourself. Many people figure out what makes them truly happy, or what they want to do with their life during this time. It’s also the road to high school, the last stop of your standard American education. As a middle school graduate, I’ve dealt with all the ups and downs, all the A+’s and the C-’s, all the old and new friends, and all the choosing of classes. Electives are the time to have something you enjoy in school, to pick what makes you happy, but also what will help you later.
I finally came to terms that I had to attend that school no matter what. I anticipated that it would be fairly easy to make friends because all the other kids were experiencing a big change as well. However, on the first day of school, I only made a few acquaintances. I felt very disappointed in myself and told myself that tomorrow will be a better day. As a result, I began to socialize more and I had the best friend group anyone could ask for.
How I Graduated High School Have you ever procrastinated for so long that it finally caught up to you? Well that was the story of my life in my senior year of high school. To me, high school wasn’t about learning and doing school work, it was more about hanging out with friends and living a life of leisure and free time. Needless to say, by the end of my sophomore year, everything changed and I learned things the hard way. Getting your responsibilities out of the way, and taken care of is always better done soon rather than later.
Knowing how to take critics is an essential in life, knowing how to deal with them is a necessity. I do have to admit that I met so many great people during High School that have support me and helped me, and now I am aware that I wouldn't be here without them. Not everyone will have the best interest in you and once in a while it is important to know that it´s alright. Sometimes the only person you need to achieve success is
I want to improve the CPS systems especially, because of work overload a lot of children are suffering. Eventually, I would like to open my own agency that will not only empower and/or encourage children to be there better self but will also secure them a future in life. An agency that is truly going to bring in positive and great results and would not consist of burnouts/work overload. Experience as a Student In undergraduate school, there were a lot of good moments, as well as struggling moments. There were times that I wanted to quit, but that was not
But music makes you smarter”(Jamie Foxx). This quote showed me that early interests could carry you a long way later on. Three salient things I wish I’d been aware of prior to my college experience are taking advantage of my extra curricular activities in high school, being more social, and attacking my grade point average early to ensure 100% success. As an incoming freshman you’re mainly focused on getting away and obtaining freedom, however during that first semester, you tend to forget your goals and purpose of attending college. Prior to me becoming a student at Prairie View A&M University, I wondered how I would pay for college because I knew my mother
Up until this time, I was unsure as to what I wanted to study in college. I came to the realization that I want to become a teacher, ideally in mathematics. I believe a teacher’s role is to lift up her students, help them gain confidence, and give them unlimited opportunities to succeed and most importantly, celebrate one’s differences. When I become a teacher I will always make sure I help all of my students and give them all the same opportunites to do what they want. Not having certain opportunities because of my size has truly affected me, and I would never want a student of mine to feel defeated.
My plan is to take this year as serious as possible and learn from my previous two years in high school. I know i'm going to have a lot of distractions but I know ill be able to work through them and make this school year as successful as possible. I’m trying to change my bad habits and have things done before I move on to anything else because I don’t want to end up going to another school to recover my credits. That's the last thing I wanna do because I don’t want to be away from this high school I Started here and I want to graduate from
