I would always avoid reading anything to them or near them for the fear they would find out I was a terrible reader. It was easy to cover my bad reading, until fourth grade when we had to read aloud to the class. My parents had no reason to`question my skills in anything academic since I had straight A’s in all my classes. Looking back at this time in my life, I truly have no idea how I did so well in school but could not read. It wasn’t until my fourth grade teacher had a parent teacher conference with my mom, that my parents found out my reading level was actually two levels behind.
I have gone through several classes where I just hurry and memorize as many facts and examples as I can so I will get through the class and still earn a good grade. I end up not being able to remember such information after the semester is over. An example of this would be my Chemistry class. I am an Early Childhood Education major, and I do not need to know Chemistry to be able to teach Kindergarten through Fourth grade. Therefore, in my mind it was acceptable to just get through the class, because I felt that the material was not necessary for my future career.
Since I have had her for two years and knew very well about her, I also became strict on time; therefore, I have never received any tardy for entire school year. Through this experience, I was able to learn a good habit from her, which benefited my high school life. I strongly believe that she does not mean to give out tardy to students just for fun, but to give them opportunities to learn a beneficial habit by being stricter with time; this indicates her love towards her students. Moreover, she is accountable for students’ education. I know that every teacher does feel responsible for educating students, but her reactions and attitudes distinguished her among other teachers.
I’m a hard worker, I’ll push myself to the limit to get what I want, also my motivation source is my hopes, dreams, myself. Two years ago, I’ve failed my chemistry exam but my hopes and dreams to get accepted here pushed me to work on myself and even stay after school with my teacher as a result of that I passed my finals which indicates that I’m the type of the person that will learn from her mistake and won’t let any barrier stay in the way. I also can understand people and listen to
“Failure is the mother of success” – I usually comfort my friends time to time, but I never expected that I would have to console myself the same way until I faced the dreadful failure for a Vietnamese student: to fail the Entrance Exam to get into the High School for the Gifted. As a Vietnamese student, learning in a High School for the Gifted means you are in a “higher class” compared to students in unspecialized schools. Being in a High School for the Gifted means you have an 90% chance of getting into top universities; it means you have everyone’s respect, you made your parents proud, and you would have opportunities meet friends who could help you succeed in life. All in all, by any means and at any price, I must get into a High School
In the process I had to change schools six times; but instead of ruing my predicament, I took it as an opportunity to meet new people and learn their customs, all the while developing a positive attitude as I adjusted to every situation. I must confess though, that my grades were somewhat mediocre in school, and I lacked interest in most of my subjects, except Math and Science the only subjects I loved the most and in which I scored well. My parents never once chastised me about my grades; rather they went out of their way to emphasize the importance of a good education – something they were not lucky
Academic classes do help prepare students for college, but if students only focus on the academics and do not take the time to learn how to prepare a meal, balance finances, or learn how to change a tire they will struggle on their own. Schools have relied on the parents to teach their children about basic life skills, but most parents these days focus on their own work or only push their students to excel in the classroom. Learning how to take care of oneself is far more important than being at the top of the class or excelling in the classroom. Students without independence and confidence about living on their own will have a harder time succeeding in
Her two brothers are troublemakers who don't care about anything and have dropped out of high school. On the other hand, Jane is a good person who always keeps her grades and has a high reputation to everyone. However, Jane is not a perfect girl who makes mistakes but still learns from them. This would be the reason why she would be my favorite in this book. 2.
Whenever people are having trouble with their classes there 's always someone who can extend a helping hand. For instance, last semester I had an important biology test that I was stressing over, so I expressed my pre-test anxieties to one of the older guys, James. Instead of simply giving me assurances that I would figure it out he took time out of his night to help me prepare. As corny as it sounds the next day I went into class and confidently completed the test. Shortly after exiting class my phone buzzed with a text message from James saying, “Hey man how did your test go today?” Even with a strong emphasis around doing good in school our brotherhood shows strongest during the
Drohn was that I got the chance to relearn type 1 and 2 diabetes myelitis. Last year in the fall of 2018, I remember not really wanting to attend my pathophysiology class. The class was stressful and I felt like a failure because I could not understand the lectures that were being taught. But shadowing Ms. Drohn, I liked how animated she was when teaching her students. She made certain not to move on to the next topic by assessing whether the students comprehend the lectured.
