From her two scientific studies, she concluded that this instruction worked; motivation and grades skyrocketed! She noted something I have observed in my study skills classes for years: "You may think students are turned off, but I see that they never stop caring. No one gets used to feeling
Every day, I aspire to use the full capacity of my brain in an effort to achieve academic excellence. My mother has a degree in Mathematics & Engineering; therefore, she really enjoyed the movie. During my early years, my mother taught me not to fear mathematics or the sciences. She expressed to me the importance of forcing my brain to think a certain way to understand mathematics not fear it. My mother would say “Terence you are over thinking your math equations; the answers are in front of you, just force your brain think a certain way without fear”.
That change of motive, prompted me to begin attending all after school tutoring sessions to learn to master my skills by seeking any and all resources available, including other math teachers on campus. My perseverant efforts were recognized by my teacher and he began to have an interest in helping me in my pursuit and desire to improve. Additionally, he began to understand my deep incentive to destroy the imposed profile. My test scores began to rise exponentially. When I received my midterm score of 98%, a score better than all the students profiling me, it was a day of victory.
She put me in her college english class when I became a senior, because she said I showed potential to be successful, and I am so proud that I took that class because it taught me how to do more. When I went back to public school I joined the reading competition team again, and for both junior and senior year, I became captain because I showed the team that I was the willpower to read all 30 books within the deadline. Even though our team did not place in the top ten, each year we grew closer and closer, and my team says it is with the help of me. I think going back to public school has helped me. Even though a lot of people believe that Jeannette is not a good school, and that they do not teach us the necessary components to get us to learn, just like in Sherman Alexie's reading, but we have shown people that they are wrong, and that we have some of the best kids in the school around the area.
You all have been obsessed with meeting expectations and grades for the last four years of your life. Checking power school two, three, four times a day. Making sure that GPA stays right where you want it to be. You have been so self absorbed with this that you have completely lost focus on what truly matters. It's more than getting an A on that math test, more then getting into that ivy league school.
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.
It strikes an interest in me because I am an Elementary Ed major and I will deal with certain situations that I have read about and I hope I make the right decision when my time comes. I want for all students to get the best education they can and be proud of who they are. I do not want my students to worry about other things besides school and helping them better themselves. I really hope I can express this emotion in my paper to earn a good grade and finish the semester strong. I just want to make a good
I willed myself to communicate effectively. I helped my classmates see past our differences by being kind and studying with them. The two hours I spent commuting everyday was to attend the best school I could. My efforts became the genesis of my Academic Excellence and Scholar Athlete Awards, as well as lifelong friendships. Without a doubt, if I had not met such changes in my life with the same eagerness to excel, I would not be as well-adjusted of a person as I am
After I got home from school, I immediately started on my homework and I did not stop until I was finished. Sometimes it would take me hours to complete my homework, but I did not give up. When it comes to finals, I study until I know all the material that I am supposed to know. I start studying a week in advance to remember everything for each class. I want to get the best grade that I can get so I study as hard as Katie did.
All of this teaching made ms.granville want to publish not one but two math books over a 3 year time frame . Many colleges bought her first book and her second book “New Math” was about changes in the teaching of elementary school mathematics . She said that “ writing these books were very demanding and time consuming” . After all this writing she was called into to work by the board of education of the Van Independent school district. From there she worked as a computer literacy teacher for 8th graders .
I expect it to be really challenging and hard. From what I have heard you get a lot of homework and essays. Since my teachers in middle school are really good I don’t think I will have a problem in high school. I also expect high school to be a lot of fun. It will be fun because I get to have classes with my friends and I get to do fun activities like gym and different clubs.
I perform well on my classwork, tests, and quizzes. My work ethic and study habits are strong. Quizlet, flashcards, and notes are all study tools I use. I have been on Honor Roll for each year at Jack Jouett Middle School and get all A 's. When confused about a concept, I always ask for help early so I understand it before the unit becomes further difficult.
I am a better student because I have learned effective strategies and pondered over my future goals. I have learned a lot about myself as a reader and a writer. When I first began class, I tried to read the DRP test. I had forgotten everything about college vocabulary that was on the test since I left the university in 2013. I had not read any books in a few months until teacher recommend for me to take fifteen minutes to read
I believe that college algebra will be something I look back at and say that it started the path to my knowledge in advanced mathematics. This class will pave the road to my career and gave me the beginnings of a type of determination that will take me to my goal of being a college
