The short story “The First Day” by Edward Jones depicts an economically challenged mother’s obstacles in taking her daughter to her first day of kindergarten class through the perspective of the young girl. Jones uses repetition and imagery to reveal a mother’s willingness to do anything in order to provide the best quality of life for her children. The author starts by describing the details of both the girl and the day. The girl seems content with her clothing and material possessions. Imagery is used here to describe how comfortable the mother wants her daughter to be, letting her wear a very nice “checkeredlike blue-and-green cotton dress,” making sure her daughter does not go hungry, and providing her with school supplies.
Retirement is the last thing on my grandma 's mind, as she loves her job, (she has many friends there, as well as the fact she says it’s relaxing) so she doesn’t want retirement, although she could take a year off because of how many days off she has saved up. She loves her quiet life in her small town of Homer, she is courteous to her neighbors, giving treats to them on the holidays, she does anything to just be nice. She sees her kids and grandkids as the light of her life, forgiving our mistakes and pushing us to always achieve what we want to do, she truly is an amazing person. So you see, Sheila Thompson really is an inspirational person, as she reminds me to always stay positive. Even though she went through taking care of three kids alone and having her husband leave, she managed to work through it thanks to her just being positive.
She also inspires Junior with life lessons that Junior needs in order to become more successful. Her wisdom has always proven to be true even in the weirdness scenarios. Grandmother Spirit is truly an inspirational person who Junior looks upon for his success. His grandmother also has a wonderful set of morals that Junior carries along with him. She teaches Junior how to forgive other people even if it was her killer.
In the following paragraphs, I will demonstrate how Laura learns to stay true to herself. One of the main reasons of how Laura learns to stay true to herself is through self-acceptance and by not letting her enemies in school win over her. Laura 's worst enemy is the boastful Sunny Rasmussen, the most popular girl in her school. She calls Laura “Fat Larda.” (p.2) Laura 's grandmother, who is also named Laura, encouraged her to not feel ashamed of herself and to be confident. She said, “It 's time to be proud of who you are.” (p.95) This quote means that
118). Calpurnia takes pride in Jem and Scout and shows a massive amount of courage taking these children to her type of life, and to her church. She teaches these kids that it’s not always the right thing to do what everybody else is doing. Calpurnia looks after these children and takes them in as her own when she is told to. Atticus shows the most examples of courage in this story.
At first, Scout is an outspoken, scrappy young girl who doesn’t know much about how to treat others. She invites Walter Cunningham over for lunch one day and ends up judging him for putting syrup on all of his food, which she doesn’t see as normal. Calpurnia pulls her into the kitchen, irate. “She was furious, and when she was furious Calpurnia’s grammar became erratic… ‘That boy’s yo’ comp’ny and if he wants to eat up the tablecloth you let him, you hear?’” (32) This is a defining moment in Scout’s developing maturity. Throughout the book, Aunt Alexandra tries to force Scout into her “young lady” norms, while Scout wants no part of it.
She is Intelligent, Aggressive, and determined to succeed in life. Brave orchid is one of the most intelligent students in her class at the Keung School of Midwifery. Hard work and high intelligence is an extremely useful trait for a young Chinese girl growing up in the mid 20th century. Higher education usually correlates to a stable income making life less stressful for the family. Brave Orchid also shows her aggressiveness when she kills a vicious ghost.
Hard work is definitely important, but you must also make sure that your loved ones know you care about them. In conclusion, Leslie Knope is an important role model for young adults. Young adults will see positive examples of work ethic, responsibility and how optimism can help in reaching life goals. She is the perfect example of how to achieve dreams and have a valuable life. Young adults will also be able to learn how to maintain valuable friendships from watching her.
The two daughters will one day be mothers, if they are lucky and might have to sacrifice life their mother has. It opens a new light for the daughters on the strength and grace their mother has shown raising her children.

Shoemaker showed each of her students a picture of God. She never yelled at us or lost her temper she is one of the most patient people I know. When we wen to her after a bad day telling her all about it she would listen intently even though our little kid problems were microscopic compared to the adult problems she was experiencing. Mrs. Shoemaker taught me that forming a nurturing relationship with students is essential in being a good teacher. When a teacher is nurturing children are more open to learning.
