I have been at Udall since preschool. I currently play volleyball, run track, participate in organizations such as FCCLA, FBLA, SADD, NHS Treasurer, and Student Council President. I am employed at JAG Gymnastics in Andover, where I teach and help girls learn to do gymnastics. My sister and I had physical therapy when we were injured, and it helped us both significantly. I will be attending Cowley County Community College for my first two years, then transferring to Emporia State University to pursue my career as a Physical Therapist Assistant.
We have heard our whole lives that reading is fundamental and in our society reading is one of the most important skills that we learn in school. Although reading skills are essential to succeed in today’s society, reading is not treated as the necessary skill that it should be. Teens are not reading like they used to. Today's society and technology has encouraged more superficial reading or even no reading at all. The digital revolution has made everything more convenient for the children of today's society.
The quote above from “Improving Adolescent Literacy: Content Area Strategies at Work” by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey, squares with my thinking because I believe giving reading assignments to students must be purposeful. In my grade years, I would always get irritated with my teachers for assigning reading without purpose. I believe teachers should give worksheets to the students when they assign reading. Assigning worksheets that go along with the text helps the students read more in depth. It also shows the students what they should be focusing on which helps the students understand the material. The quote above from “Improving Adolescent Literacy: Content Area Strategies at Work” by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey, expresses how observing

After obtaining my associate degree I began my own step team and mentoring the young ladies at Arbor Hill Elementary in Albany NY. I then decided to continue my education with obtaining my bachelors degree in Business Administration. Being that I have become a mother of two, I knew that the chances for me to go into the classroom were slim to none. I made the decision to return back to school online to Everest University. By the time I started I relocated back to South Carolina to helped out my dad that was sick at the time.
This September I will be going off to high school. I will be attending Monsignor Farrell High School in Staten Island. I can’t wait to go to high school and take a big step toward adulthood. I expect a lot of things will happen in high school and I am looking forward to it.
In today’s society, there is an immense amount of young adults and teenagers who don’t enjoy reading as much as teens from the eighties. This may be because of the increase in technology starting from the beginning of the twenty-first century, or just because people choose not to read. One of the most evident reasons to why teenagers in this century have to force themselves to read is because of all the other distractions and things they would rather be doing than sit in complete silence, reading a book. This isn’t a cause for celebration, or a statement implying that reading is only for educational purposes and not the enjoyment, because it isn’t.
An article in the Teen Tribune tells how a 3-year-old black bear was captured at an elementary school in Bakersfield. The bear was first seen wandering around on school property and it not only interrupted the last day of school but, also a graduation ceremony that was being held at a middle school close by. The bear spotting caught everyone by surprise and soon all students that were outside were sent back to their classrooms as the bear started to come closer. And even though the bear kept its distance and nobody was in harm’s way, the authorities were called. It didn’t take long for the officers to get there, and when they did they cornered the bear, captured it and released it into the wild. The bear may have just been looking for something
My Freshman year was the best year ever! I got to be in marching band, FFA, and I got a tremendous academic placing. I definitely did a great job this year compared to last year. I broke out of my comfort zone and worked my hardest to get a high GPA, and join some different clubs. I met new friends and even passed driver 's ed.
When someone who commits a crime is determined to be mentally inadequate to be held accountable for the crimes they have committed, there are things that we do to charge them, but in a lesser way because of their mental capacity. Which begs the question, why are we allowing children to be sentenced to life, when their brains aren’t fully developed? When a child commits a crime we look over that, and stop seeing them as children. We shouldn’t sentence children to a life in prison when their brains are not only underdeveloped, but also missing a good portion of gray matter.
The Chapel has been a place for prayer and where I find peace. I am looking forward to the second half of the semester.

This book is relevant today becuase it has important messages about bravery and putting things into action and exploring. I think these messages are important in current events today in many ways. One ways is that we always need to be brave in everything we do. Also we need to explore and see new thigs I the world to get a better understanding of different places in the world.

This year, I have continued to achieve academic excellence inside the classroom while continuing to be a leader in the St. Paul’s community.

Since I was young, I have been passionate about lending a hand, to a person I felt needed support and this passion helped shape what my future may hold. An event happened that has been instrumental in developing my character and guiding my choices ever since. It was a late summer night and it was almost midnight when my soccer game ended, After the game, I ran into the washroom because I was dying to ease myself. I took an excessive time and missed my ride home; they must have thought I had another ride home. My situation made me become bewildered at what to do next then, I thought to myself on giving my mother a call. My bag was by my side so I reached into my bag for my phone and tried turning it on but, it was unresponsive so I figured my phone battery was dead.
