I was the strange child, I still am the strange child in the class. I wasn’t afraid to tell people what my opinion was about them or their ideas. I wasn’t afraid to find common interests with new friends and share my experience stories with them. More importantly, to me at least, I wasn’t afraid to talk about: my depression, my anxiety or even my bipolar and the feelings of ups and downs that those ‘illnesses’ had put the emotions and mental state I have through. “Everything changes when you arrive at HIgh School,” and, “it’ll be the best years of your life,” I’ve even heard, “you’re going to miss being in school.” I will tell you that while I will miss the three friends I have here in High School, I’m never going to miss the resentment and self hatred that followed my soul all through the first semester of Freshman year that I’m still working through.
I used to think that going to high school would be scary, but with all my friends and everything that my teachers have taught me, all I feel now is excited. I want it to be the first day of 9th grade fast, I want to start High School. I know that my friends would be here when I need them as well as teachers willing to help me. So it 's time today to end the second part of our education and enter the third. It 's time to leave behind the middle school facility, say goodbye to the U14 teams and be introduced to JV, and most of all, time to go from the middle school community that we 're familiar with, that we love, and that we are in charge of, and go upstairs to the bigger, busier, and honestly, scarier high school, where we will all be 9th graders.
How are we able to teach the kids of today, if we don 't teach ourselves and stay current with the times. I can tell you that as a child with dyselxia, I see all of these current tablets and other learning methods that are being inplemented and I am so happy for the students that are able to benefit from using the items, I wish that I had those things at my disposal when I was in school, i 'm sure it took someone who had a passion for the schools and kids to come up with a way to integrate these items and findings that hepled the kids to succeed. I think that we need more teachers that will constantly try new methods of learning and teaching. I was one of those kids that wouldn 't understand your way of teaching no matter how many times you repeated yourself to me, and often I was told to visit the teacher during office hours instead . Yet the moment you explained it to me in a different way I would get and never forget.
The first ACTSage awareness step was enough for me to know I needed to make changes and to get started doing it. It’s that way for everyone and, just as I experienced, most people find that taking even simple steps can make life better. If you are like me and others, by now, you may be clearing out some of the dysfunctional support or transactional connections wearing you down. You may have set better boundaries and no longer tolerate poor service. You may be taking time to care for yourself.
We all look forward to the day of graduation and the day we turn our dreams to reality some find it easy and some find it difficult. I remember being in high school two years ago and thinking about what I wanted to do after graduation as to -- whether I should go straight to nursing school or start off at a community college to eventually transfer to a four year university. In life, lots of students come across transitioning from high school to college to become successful in life and to achieve their goals. Some people find it easy or difficult to transition from high school to college. The reason for this is people fail to realize that high school is way different than college.
On evaluation day, all of the students had to wear matching black leotards, and perform the same combos and skills. We started getting ready for these tests in the beginning of the year, so we had time to learn our routines, but the dances we needed to learn can also be found on YouTube. As an overachiever, I would always work outside my ballet classes with the videos, so by February, I would already be prepared for my examination that wouldn’t happen until December. Being an overachiever is a positive quality of being the oldest child because it helps us avoid procrastination, but at the same time, all this dedication can be very
It all seemed great, but was I ready or would I ever be ready to see people in their worst days? It took me a whole year in college to realize that firefighting was something I did not want to pursue. Desperately looking for a new major, I started to consider teaching, but purely for selfish reasons. However, somewhere during my second year of college, there was a significant spark that led me to want to pursue teaching for a different reason. In high school, sports were everything, maintaining a good GPA was crucial.
I am describing my junior year with the word tutorial because I look at it as a lesson that I did not have to study for, I just had to be ready to deal with anything harsh that was to ever be thrown at me or into my direction. From my junior year, I remember so many things such as being kicked out of my first high school and attending my second semester of my junior year at Euclid High School, making good grades, having a few friends with many laughs, trying to participate in events that the school would hold so that I could be more involved with the school staff as well the student body, helping out with the yearbook class, and having conversations, that will remain unforgettable, with the adults of Villa Angela- St. Joseph High
I feel that to properly understand me you should receive an understanding about my high school experience, my academic mistakes, my long term goals,and how I plan on succeeding at Lindenwood University. I strongly believe that Lindenwood is the perfect place to cultivate my interests into a career and I want to convince whoever it may concern that i will not waste this opportunity. High School was always this vision of freedom that middle school Destiny yearned for. Being a fan of cliche high school show tropes I thought being in high school would be like being in an episode of “Glee”. I soon realized that highschool is not some teenage dream.
Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to be successful in life. I have always wanted to be the better version of my parents and achieve many things in life. During my freshman year in High school, I knew I was going to major in business. I come from a household of five, my father, mother, two younger sisters, and myself. I am the first in my family to go to college and with that being said, I have always felt the pressure to be the best role model and example for my younger sisters.
