I work harder than the rest of my classmates due to my limitations with my English. When everyone else in the class is chatting or on their phones, I am reading articles and learning new words. When I unexpectedly received an A in this AP class, it gave me the confidence to believe that I can actually do anything if I just put my mind into it. This motivated me to do more and accept more challenges causing me to take more AP classes to further prove myself. I am not doing this to please my 9th grade English teacher or other people.
The book Choice Words by Peter H Johnson challenges teachers to think about the words that they say because teachers have such a powerful influence on how children see themselves. Teachers undoubtedly are a very influential part of child’s life. The words that teachers say (and don’t say) influence a child way beyond the time that he or she is in their classroom. For example, my daughter is in the second grade; she has vivid memories of all of her teachers. She remembers their character and how they made her feel.
The way I view my students and clients as well as my aims as an educator with them, has been heavily influenced by my schooling experience. At primary school, I was quite clever and very well behaved. Manners and behaving appropriately in public was a very important message I received in my schooling years. That message was consistently in my head and kept me on the straight and narrow. As the youngest child, my parents also spoilt me and didn’t require me to help out in the house or over exert myself in tasks which I undertook.
School taught me how to cooperate with students my age, more established, more youthful, and with abnormal grown-ups. As I became more established through state funded school and into college I was and still am ready to learn and refine the relationship building abilities I have learned in school. Being of a middle class family with a mother, father, and three children cash was tight. My parents were constantly ready to manage the cost of educational instruments to help with school. I was managed open doors all through school to have the best possible attire, nourishment, and safe house to be a sound person.
I was an only child until I was almost three when my little sister was born. A couple of weeks before I turned eight my little brother was born. They have impacted my life way more than they realize. Being an older sister has shaped me into the person I am today in school and class, because I’ve learned how to cope with different things, learned that people like to do things their own way and I have learned how to set a good example. I have learned how to cope with things I don’t like very much being a big sister.
In a school setting, the teacher has different rules and repercussions that the children begin to interpret and abide by. They also begin to witness that their actions affect the other children. When children are surrounded by their peers, they master concepts such as sharing and how to form relationships. The value of friendship becomes a concept that they understand. Children also get to experience a much more diverse set of cultures during their preschool years.
High school grows you into the person you are. I have great memories, good and bad, some learning experiences and some that I’ll take with me the rest of my life. My high school experience has influenced my development as a person inside and outside of the class by making me more independent, choosing friends wisely and teachers motivating me to attend college and accomplish goals I have set for myself. I have gained my independence slowly throughout high school. The importance of being independent is being secure with who you are and what you believe in.
She showed me right from wrong and guided me and pushed me to do the right things in life and strive for success. As I grew up, my mom was always right by my side and accepted my dreams and wanted me to go out and pursue every dream I have. Looking back at everything my mom has taught me,
The way my mom raised me has made me the person I am today, so if I were to say she didn't impact my life I would be lying. The work values she instilled in me made me the hard worker I am, from my first job ever to all the hard work I am putting into my education now. I thank her so much for this because if I didn't have that in me I don't know where I would be today. She also raised me with a strong faith in
Education has a big impact on society by transforming the culture or tradition which also has a big impact on other generations (Salgür, 2013). A lot of people believe that United States are the leader in high education, this is the reason why United States made secondary schools for free (Wobbekind, 2012). The benefits of education can be personal and societal level. The statistics shows that an individual’s strong relationship exists between the level of education and earnings (Card, 2013 as cited in Wobbekind ,
