I would watch tv and recite things that sounded important as though they had purpose. I liked going to see my pediatrician because of the nice professionalism of the women there; all the files and colored papers and nice handwriting was admiring for me. Soon enough I realized I was into math and science, which turns out to be the medical field. I was always a good student but battled with consistency, all during high school it was an uphill battle getting myself to understand that high school was a given for to enhance myself for my future. During College I have had some similar issues I have been working to break myself out of the cycle of being in an inconsistent state.
Hi-Lighters is a club devoted to spreading positivity and instilling healthy lifestyle habits into members of my school. All high school students, myself included, experience stress sometimes, whether from school or family matters. Our goal at Hi-Lighters is not merely to encourage an optimistic outlook, but to work with members of my community to recognize sources of stress and strive to find ways to properly handle this stress, whether it be by developing stronger study habits or finding small ways to add movement into their busy schedules. Hi-Lighters also encourages students and faculty to recognize the incredible efforts faculty put into their work, with our popular Teacher Shout-Out Box. This is an opportunity for students and faculty
After the teacher could gain control of the class she started to more attention to what the teacher was saying. In the end Sindy made a new friend and she like a class in school for once in her life. I think they are similar in many ways. One way is that they both had a friend die before in front of them. Also, at first, they were not too fond of English class, but they learned to like it a lot.
Brown’s hand, gave her eye contact, and greeted her. Then, we sat down and she asked me questions and I answered the questions thoroughly, and at a very good pace, I was also very honest while answering my questions. My interviewer was not as harsh as I would have expected for her to be. Ms. Brown is an EC Director for Weldon City Schools, so when she asked me to tell her about myself and what career I may choose, I told her that I tutored EC students for a semester, and I would love to look into being a EC teacher, and she was very impressed because many students are not interested in being a teacher for a EC children so she felt that I had same intentions that she did, that we both want to see EC children succeed in life and not be brought down, to encourage them but also people who have misunderstandings about the children. Ms. Brown and I discussed how passionate we are towards the children and how we got involved with wanting to help them which I felt that was the main reason as to why the interview went very smoothly with her, and her wonderful personality.
My friends would take my mind off of the mean girls by helping me study the material I was at campus to test over. Of course, since I studied the entire time I was waiting I did excellent on all of my tests, and quizzes. When the girls realized that their action of making fun of us was helping me on my tests, they stopped. Negative peer pressure can have an opposite effect of those who understand what the mean girls are trying to
One day earning a Bachelor’s Degree as a Spanish teacher. One strong, successful skill I have is being able to balance being a mom as well working and being a full-time student. In spite of, meeting new classmates it can be a bit intimidating, but it can also help one build communication skills as well getting to know one another. I view this class differently now and I am open to meet more classmates as well as Mrs. Graves in getting to know them as an individual. Stephanie is a sweet individual with dreams to conquer.
I started to play the game of how successful I could get without letting barriers stumble me. During my first years in this country I was put in classes that would help my dialect evolve, I was very attentive and eventually was able to grasp the English dialect, my Spanish accent almost unrecognizable. I always enjoyed learning, but this was a new challenge. A new language, new expectations, and all I could feel was the isolating sensation that burden me. All my peers seem to master the subjects at school and I would always admire those who shot their hand high, while I held my hand down on my lap.
Heaney when she talks to the whole class I feel like she is only talking to me because I am looking at her and listening which makes me even more focused on the person. I have articulated ideas and thoughts clearly when someone is explaining to me or when I am about to say something or before I action. As a Collaborative Worker: I have developed interpersonal skills by trying to make friends and talking to strangers in school that of course are in my class and by entering the teen entrepreneur academy in summer that led me to do presentation better than when I was in 9th grade. I have valued individuals ideas when working in a team or when debating in class or outdoors for example in my dance class and English class I have valued my classmates ideas in how to structure the steps or how to create a do what chart. I have contributed to a team in all my classes for example in my geometry class we students have our teams to work with and as well in my Spanish class that lets us communicate when we do not understand a lesson.
This semester I have learned a considerable amount in Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise. The wide array of content covered helped me learn a lot about different subjects. Some of my favorite activities were the Fitness Fridays and the various speakers. I was glad this class had a mixture of ways that the material was presented because it helped really understand the topics. The main topics that I feel like changed my lifestyle the most were the Behavior Change Contract, the Access Yourself Quizzes, and the lectures.
Being unpolite is a practice that can benefit people who are usually taken for granted. First, I look at teachers, those I consider the main group who in general can benefit from being unpolite. Throughout school, they were the prime example of how even the slightest amount of politeness can lead to your kindness being taken as a weakness. I personally witness teachers struggling to gain control of their classes because students found them too lenient but I also witness students having panic attacks because their teachers were strict. The students would constantly test teachers to see how much they could get away with and once they figure out the teacher’s tolerance the reputation memo spread throughout the school.
When we taught together I do recall her having a heavy focus on vocabulary in her science class. She developed a vocabulary game called, “Last Man Standing” to help the kids not only understand vocabulary words, but also the parts of words. I always saw the positive impact it had on students’ success, but never understood why she had such a heavy focus on it. After our interview I now understand the why and it makes perfectly good sense. I then began to wonder what strategies could we, as a school, provide for our parents to help them support their child’s vocabulary development?
What’s a coincident Maria, I noticed from reviewing your subject’s profile that both our subjects have several things in common. Both like to read “The Diary of Wimpy Kid.” Both don’t like to read at play time. They like to watch T.V., and both are eager to be better in reading. It’s great that Sarah is one of your students so you get to work with her constantly; at the meantime you shall notice the improvement in different areas. You mentioned that the school offer support and assistance for her as an ELL students, that a wonderful and helpful!
Releasing her novel into classrooms around the nation taught the students about the Southern views and their oppression which helped bring to light the reasons for the movement. Her novel kept up a popular status to his day and her ideas of hope and justice still empower classrooms. When talking to a teacher here at Pilot Grove about her stance on the book she stated that “if she had to choose a book to teach in classrooms, it would be this one because of its literary variations and its overarching sense of hope.” Another schoolteacher noted that “Harper Lee’s greatest contribution to our culture was that she found a way to make people listen who weren’t listening. To help people see who would have rather turned away.” (Crum 1)Her writing made the idea of racial segregation and stereotyping come to light by addressing it in her widely popular novel. Lee’s greatest feat in American literature, her contribution to the Civil Rights Movement through her book To Kill a Mockingbird, impacted the way that not only authors, but the way people of this day
If you have ever used the statement, "They were doing it too" or "He made me do it" then you are wrong because as this quote says, you make your own decisions even if you are trying to impress your friends. Make your friends want to impress you in the right way. My school years have been filled with those statements and I still use them to this very day. Although everyone has had that moment when they blamed their wrongs on someone else they still have very interesting and happy memories. I am excited to share with you my 2nd and 3rd grade years.
In high school, I became involved with Berea Teen Mentoring (BTM), a group of college 'mentors ' who created a safe place for the local teens to gather to socialize and learn about current events. This group took my social anxiety very seriously and made me much more comfortable talking to people and speaking my ideas. I was no longer the shy and quiet person of my childhood. This group left an incredible impression on me, and I created many memories of community service projects and friends that I will always remember fondly. Through BTM, I gained ambition for my opinions, I got over most of my social anxiety, and found courage to stand out and make myself recognized.
