She gave us all of the AP rubrics, a sheet of transition words to use in our writing pieces, and she even showed us the agenda she had planned out for the rest of the year. As the year went on, I got accustomed to her teaching style and I was doing well for the first few months. As the assignments got more challenging, my grade seemed to be slowly dropping. It usually dropped .01%, but that was still something. In all honestly, I wasn’t worried as I’d always got by doing the bare minimum.
When the state exam finally came it was nothing relevant to all that we had studied the entire year. From that point on I felt that English classes were a waste of time, and I was no good at them. When the results from the state test came, I received a

Now I’m doing something completely different from all three of the previous years. I’m preparing myself to raise a child. High school changed everything in my life. I one was good at math, I never had so many teachers leave at one time, my taste in friends was proven to be a typical high school experience, and my free time changed. After Senior year I’m not looking forward to adult for the rest of my
When I read the description of the JMU Honors program and saw the three questions that described the desired candidate, I couldn 't help but think that this was the perfect program for me. Throughout high school, I have continually challenged myself by taking classes that required my constant attention and focus. Other than required classes, I have taken nothing but Honors and AP courses. During my junior year, I also worked an average of 25 hours/week. Between work and my difficult class load, I have learned many lessons about balance and time-management.
*As all this was going on, my grandma was still teaching away here. * Well, a few years went by, and not only did the two sisters move up into new grades, my Unlce Greg came to Burdick school, looked upon as a Pee-Wee-Herman by his fellow older sisters. A year later Justin Seefeldt, the youngest of the group, was finally going to be enrolled into school, and you guessed it, that school had been Burdick. This meant that my grandma was teaching at A.E. Burdick school and her four children had attended the school as well.
I went soul searching to find out what I really did like about english. I found out that I loved novels that somehow tied into life happening all around me.

These two learning events, which are prominent events within my first year of studying OT, include the OT June exam and making a chair in APT (Appropriate Paper-based Technology) for a child with Cerebal Paulsy and Microcephaly. To look into these two significant learning events in more detail, one must understand the theory behind occupational therapy, and in order to do this, a few terms and concepts need to be defined and discussed. According to the American Occupational Therapy Association, AOTA in 2008 and the World Federation of Occupational Therapists, WFOT in 2010, “occupational therapy is the art and science of helping people do the day-to-day activities that are important and meaningful for their health and
I am also a big supported of women’s right and I look forward to learning more about these topics and having civil class discussions. I hope to learn more and get more perspective from classmates. I hope to apply what I learn as I continue to voice my beliefs in our community in a respectable way. I look forward to exercising my critical and analytical thinking in this class. In this first week I have been intellectually challenged by my professor and other classmates as they have asked thought provoking questions and I strive to attribute as
