During class we discussed about whether its a good or bad thing to end up having a different goal that we have set for ourselves and right away I thought about how I changed some of my goals that I have set for myself. One of the goals I changed was how staying close to my family because I am a very family oriented person but I felt like I had to get out of my comfort zone by choosing to attend Johnson County Community College. I always thought I would make a positive impact in the county that I got raised in. Later on I said to myself that I have to do a greater impact by being a leader outside of my community in order to grow as a person but also a well-rounded leader in regards to living up to different expectations compare to the expectations
In the article “Want To Get Into College? Learn To Fail” by Angel B. Perez the main idea was that colleges want to know the real you,the imperfect you not the just the great things you’ve accomplished over the year ,but also the failure you had to overcome. The reason why they want to know this is to see if you can overcome failing a class or two just to how you can you handle this, because life is not easy and healthy,family and money sometimes can get in the way of things but the goal is to make you succeed. Another thing I learned that I think is a main point is that parents are the ones pressuring their children to be perfect. So much that they didn 't want their child to take a risk in a class if there was a possibility for failure.
Education plays an important role to allow me to move up the social ladder. Although my family cannot provide me a sufficient financial support to continue my postgraduate studies, I am able to finish my undergraduate studies due to the assistance of TSFS and learn some professional knowledge. Also, I can learn foreign language course in the university so that I can have a higher competitiveness in the future occupation. Indeed, the undesirable financial condition of my family’s current social class position may cause some disadvantage and avoid me to get some life chances like the opportunities to study postgraduate courses overseas. This may also affect me to get a higher professional job in the future.
Should pros be allowed to draft college athletes before they graduate. I believe that the pros shouldn’t be allowed. My reasoning is that players need time to develop & think about what’s best for them. Another reason is that players should graduate first so that if the sport they play doesn’t work out then they have a college degree for a back up career in something else. There are plenty of good reasons but something that players should think more about is the longer you stay in college the more developed & ready for the pro sport you dream of going into.
To succeed in my majors, I first have to do well in my standard classes such as Fitness and Wellness or American History (classes that don’t contribute to my major). I personally believe such classes are stepping stones of furthering my knowledge and comprehension even if it doesn 't specifically correlate with my intended majors. While attending Converse, I have to keep a 3.5 or higher to keep all my scholarship; this pressure is intimidating, but this also contributes to my motivation for higher learning. During my college career, I hope to intern or work part time, so I can build my experience, connections, and
When I enrolled at GCU I had extreme motivation to find a program that allowed me to work and be in school. I have always believed in the value of higher education but in the past year of school I found myself frustrated and knew that there had to be a different way to be able to do everything I wanted to do as well as be in school. GCU’s online program sparked my interest because of how it did not hinder my ability to work my preferred hours. It rekindled the spark of motivation in me that finishing school does not have to be troublesome. Having the motivation to finish school is so important for a students success because without motivation nothing can be done.
I certainly have not always been interested in law, especially before my senior year of high school. In fact, I had friends, as well as one teacher, who told me that this idea would be a terrible fit for my personality and that I should just scrap it. What these people failed to realize, however, is that I want to do this for so much more than a high salary, great benefits, or prestige that comes with having a Juris Doctor; I want to do this for others. The two factors that really led to this decision are 1. my family situation as a child, and 2.
Adult learning theory is such an important theory that organizations should consider. “Knowles’s theory of andragogy is a constructivist approach to learning that involves facilitating adults to draw on their experience and so create new learning based on previous understandings” (Cox, 2015). Under his theory, there are six assumptions of adult learners, including the need to know, learner’s self-concept, role of the learner’s experience, readiness to learn, orientation to learning and motivation. Adult learning really helps organizations to understand and focus on adult learner, because adults as employees in organizations are totally different with students learning. Compares with students, adult learners dissatisfied with formal learning environments, the learning theory which assume ‘learners only need to know that they must learn what the teacher teaches’ cannot used for adults (Halpern and Tucker, 2015).
I feel that my experiences will both help and hinder me, in a sense I have a deep understanding of what many people whom will need a social worker are going through, but because of this I will also have a harder time ensuring I do not over relate than some of my fellow classmates will. I have not made a decision on what branch of Social Work I actually want to go into, as of right now I am open to anything. Although I have already decided that as soon as I graduate with a Bachelor’s degree I will apply for graduate school to obtain my Master’s
Haden argues that our future generation entering the workforce should not take this advice. Instead, students should be advised to find a job that contains some form of value. Although the author’s purpose of arguing is well supported, and he might be sending the wrong message.
In regard to work, which will accumulate more headaches, is not the best option. I recommend spending time with her son and helping him make future plans after high school is very important. Concerning his living environment, discussion the issue with the aunt and friend’s parents is very important toward making the decision. Telling the son about the life changing situation would be
Finally, you should side with Dr. Huxtable because he has more experience and knows more about how you should use and what you should and should not spend it on than Theo. Those are all of the examples and reasonings why you should side with Dr. Huxtable and not Theo also why you should do good during high school so if your mind changes, and you do want to go to college and get further
Delbanco explains how students have changed their reasons for attending a college when he states, “...yet on the assumption that immersing themselves in learning for the sheer joy of it, with the aim of deepening their understanding of culture, nature, and, ultimately, themselves, is a vain indulgence” (222). Secondary education has become too expensive for learning to be an indulgence. Students only go to college to get a degree in order to gain a high paying career. Davidson explains how dire the situation with low paying job is by saying how the process should work, “Only through productivity growth can the average quality of human life improve” (339). Unfortunately, the productivity growth only leaves a bigger pay gap.
My biggest expectation going into the internship at DFCS was that I would learn more about the social work/social services field and confirm that social work was truly what I wanted to spend my life doing as a career. I also expected to confirm my thought that DFCS was a place I would enjoy working and could see myself working in the future after graduate school. This internship met my personal expectations, however it happened in a way much differently than I expected. While the internship experience did confirm that I love social work and the social services field, it showed me that DFCS is not the agency that I want to work with as a career. I stand behind DFCS 100%; however, I don’t think I could work with DFCS long term.
