High school has impacted my life in so many ways. High School taught me so many things, from personal relationships to creating a relationship with my education. As a freshman, I made a huge amount of mistakes and I regret doing foolish things, but I’ve realized, I was only maturing into the young adult I am today. Freshman year, I was out of focus and I was only trying to find myself. I would also prioritize other things and ignore my parent’s advice, where they would tell me to focus in school and give it my full attention.
Just because they are in their senior year teachers should see if that person is capable to read spell or write. Another thing is the students who puts their effort into school and still are not able to understand the subject then that will be different. For example, students with special disorders are the ones that will fall into that category. One of the many night students that sherry teaches said “I was a good kid and didn’t cause any trouble, so they just passed me along even though I didn’t read well and couldn’t write” (1). This example, shows that instead of the teachers using a method that gives her the power that she needs, students do as they please without much effort.
Becoming as upcoming students from middle school transitioning to high school can be a scary experience for many freshmans. Having different fears such as getting late to their classes the first week, not knowing who to talk to in their new classes, and what type of teachers they are going to get. A few ways that I overcame my fears as a freshman is by not getting lost in the school building, overcoming hard-work plus a lot of homework, and making a few new friends. First on how I overcame my fear by not getting lost in a totally complete big and new building. For example, asking around helped get to the classes more easily and more quickly so being late would not be a problem.
Many of us are faced with tough times, hard decisions, and struggles but there are only certain people that have the willpower and determination to overcome those obstacles and change their life for the better. Many of us are faced by little challenges like when the alarm clock goes off for school. Do we get up and go to school or do we go back to bed? The immediate reward is going back to bed and getting the satisfaction of more sleep but the downfall is that you miss your classes. This didn’t seem like an important decision for me until I got to college.
Reading was my only solace from the realities of struggling in school and not having many friends. When my reading addiction persisted into high school, I started to realize the severity of my actions, and how failure in high school was not an option. I took it upon myself to give up this obsession. Of course, I never expected my withdrawal to be easy, but I understood that the rewards would be worth it. Initially, I was always cranky because books were all I could think about.
Not a bad change, but certainly a busy one, though not at first. Much of this came with Drama club, a thing I had had interest in but very little actual experience. This would take over much of my time after school, though much of my time in the program was spent behind curtains or working the house. I was a great student through high school too, taking all honors and AP classes. I was still a great reader and found I had a fantastic memory.
Student athletes often struggle with keeping their grades up in school. Not only do they have to study and have to do their homework every night but they also have to practice every day. Student athletes have to work harder than non-athletes to get their work done, but they can do it if they really put their mind to it. Most student athletes depend on their grades to get in the college of their dreams and play for their favorite team. They need good grades in high school if they want to get accepted to their dream school and play college ball.
Is homework becoming too much? Every day students spend hours upon hours doing homework every night and stressing out if they aren't able to finish it. The first form of homework was given as a punishment to the kids that would act up in class. The teacher would give them extra school work to take home and do instead of being able to go home relax and have fun. Although homework can help increase understanding of new topics this kind of practice is not helping students because it can interfere with sleeping, stresses kids and teenagers out and can cause depression, and even make a kid give up on school altogether.
Having this issue, I got put into an “extra help” reading class. This class didn’t amuse me, it actually made my day worse every time I had to go. Having this class made me dislike reading even more. The teacher made me read books I didn’t want to, which took it to another level. Being in this class for almost the whole year really opened my eyes, it made me want to
My first impression of Tevis was how it was bigger than my old school. Junior high was not as difficult as I thought it was going to be, but on the other hand some of the classes were kind of difficult. The most difficult class I’ve had was Mrs. Buchholz history class in seventh grade. It was a challenge because she had us take long notes for tests and I really couldn’t keep up with her at first. Also, the test she had us take where hard if you didn’t study and she would give us about one class period to finish the
She states, “There are some days where everything is going great and no one is giving you trouble, and there are other days where the students are just not motivated to learn and are being extremely difficult.” When she was telling me this the first thing that popped in my head was “so every day is practically a new adventure in this type of environment,” because literally each day there is always something new happening especially when you’re working with high school students. Ms. Guerra continues on explaining how there was a particular year where the students did not want to do the work, and were okay with failing the course. “I spend so much time in each lesson and I do everything I can to make everyone participate, but when my students don’t reciprocate to the enthusiasm I have I start wondering what am I doing wrong? And you must be mentally ready that not every day is going to be a good day in the classroom.” This had me realizing that teachers, put in so much of their time for their students and sometimes are not appreciated and given the credit they deserve. Besides the negative parts that can possibly occur she also explained how there are days where everything is going smoothly and there is so much cooperation and participation going on in class.
While my bad things are that sometimes I would be late to a doctor appointment, activation, and therapy because I have to stay in class the whole hour then go change and drop my stuff off to go to my appointments. In conclusion I’m very happy with the class because it help me understand how my classes are going to be when I move up classes. I take English again next semester. I’m probably going to be pooped out from all the essays we did from this semester’s English class, but at least I know how rough it’ll
Asperger 's Syndrome is difficult to live with. It affects me in all aspects of life. In school, I have great difficulty communicating in groups (for example, Socratic Seminars); I either fail to speak up, misunderstand what someone is talking about, or ignore the entire discussion. This failure to follow through has drastically affected my grade and I immediately knew I needed to change my behavior, and fast. As I entered high school, with the help of my parents and prior experience, my social skills have steadily improved, and I began to work as a group.
Now don 't get me wrong; I do spend a considerable amount of time at rehearsals and voice lessons which limits the amount of time I have to complete homework, but from my perspective, this is what is particularly motivating. Perpetually being both intellectually and physically engaged drives me to complete my academic work. I know that when I do my homework that I will work efficiently because it means that I will be able to go to rehearsals without the stress of schoolwork haunting me. This concept also enabled me to see how much time I wasted before taking advantage of every opportunity to work in order to complete assignments as early as possible. I try to complete my homework during study halls, lunch periods, before rehearsal, or any
I almost went to every class in the first half semester, but the midterm grade is not appropriate. I did not go to several last classes, but I studied and reviewed at home, that is also the reason that I can get a good grade in the final. I am so sorry for my bad grade
