Although I was able to pass the class, and the passing grade on my AP test meant I got my grade boosted to an ‘A’ automatically, the failure I felt in the first couple of months was unlike anything I had experienced at that point. If I had not been desperate to find a better way to study, I wouldn’t have discovered that music soundtrack, and I might never have discovered Sierra Boggess and her powerful quotes. Even though I wasn’t happy at the time with my abysmal test and quiz scores, I’m glad I was able to learn this lesson that I am already enough, as it has changed my entire outlook on life so much. Now the next time I’m disappointed with a test score, or angry with myself for messing something up, I will be able to remind myself that I am always
Throughout high school, and some college I have experienced the some of the major things to deal with in life. In high school I was only kind of told about some of the challenges that awaited, but also was given some right there to deal with on my own. I started high school trying to be the best that I could be. Doing that caused lots of struggling to happen. 4 honors classes with homework in each class and trying to play games all night didn’t cut the study plan, causing a lot of stress.
ENC 1102 was a challenging course I had to overcome. As I was walking into class day by day, I learned and picked up something new each day. I considered myself a low-skilled writer, but after this class I can say I’ve improved my writing techniques tremendously. Although this class didn’t teach me everything I wished, this course did teach me how to research, how to write a thesis statement, and open/closed form essays, which I would carry throughout my career.
Despite not placing in the competition, participating in the FBLA county competition was important to me because of the valuable lesson I learned. I had a long speech prepared that I had spent several days preparing and memorizing, and was confidant that I was going to ace it. But the second I stood in front of the judges, I stumbled over my words, lost my place on my note cards, and was so eager to get it over with i rushed through the rest of my speech and didn 't make the time limit. I was so prepared to give a winning speech, i was dissapointed in my inadequacy. Noticing my disappointment, when my adviser came to discuss the performance, he told me he was proud.
Spring of 2014 I started my college career by enrolling at Highline College in Des Moines and take Highline’s placement testing. I scored significantly lower in math than what I had in high school, but I scored into college level English. I was highly discouraged with my math scores, I made excuses why I got those scores, blamed how long the test took, blamed how early it was but, after I calmed down and took the time to really look at the reason why I got the score that and realized It was because of my choice not to study beforehand. There understood that I wasn’t ready for college level math and where I placed was where I needed to start at if I wanted to start my college education with a solid foundation in mathematics. In Fall 2014 I began my first quarter as a Highline
From a freshman to a senior I grew a lot because in freshman and sophomore years I had always touched that I had to more years then I could catch up all of my credit so I could be able to graduate. But that did happen because in freshman I was a really social person and my grades were really bad I was not doing my homework I would rarely go to class than I had to get into a contracted. Even writing essay it always been hard for me because I would not practice now through junior and senior years I have been during I really improve a lot because now I go to my classes every day do all of my homework I practice all of my essays. And even sometimes I try to get involved with school like going a sport and it allows me always having a good Gpa so I could be able to play the sport. How does my learning impact my learning experience during high school?
In every science class I’ve had good grades. For example, on my sophomore year I’ve heard many negative comments about chemistry. “Do not take that class, you are going to struggle.” or “ Dude, chemistry f****d me over” But even though from such negative feedback, I still persuade to took that class. By mid year i was surprised I had a B as my grade. In general, I see science as a very interesting subject.
my first days in my new country were tough because I did not speak the same language making it harder to be able to write and communicate with the people around me. But as soon as I learned the language things got a little bit more easier. My writing improve a lot I went from writing short sentences to paragraphs and to writing complete essays for school. I still remember an accident I had with my English teacher on sophomore year of high school. She made us write an essay about a book call “ to kill a mockingbird”.
I even made some wonderful friends. But the longer i was in school the more bullies noticed me. i didn't need to do anything bad they just needed someone with enough low self esteme and i had it. i colored my hair and I started to struggle keeping my grades together and keeping my firends together and soon enough i was hopeless. As that depression grew i graduated highschool with C's to D-'s, my family was not happy.
The relationship began to get better over time which help tremendously because we started to talk more and I started to reach out and ask for help. Some people go through things in life but that does not define who you are or will be. My name is Ayleah Weaver and I used to not care about school or anything for that matter, I failed two classes which I am now making up and I got better with school over time and I am now an honor roll student, my senior year has been my best year. In high school you have some challenging moments but it is your job to get through them. My most challenging educational experiences while in high school were my most teachable moments in life.
The challenges that I faced last semester within this classroom was mainly home reading and writing, such as reading How to Kill A Mockingbird. This was a challenge for me to read over the break and weekends because frankly I’m not very fond of reading fictional things and things that have really no general interest towards myself. I just didn’t want to do the reading, which is a huge factor on my part, it’s not the wisest decision I’m aware of that, to not do assignments because I find them useless to me, but it’s hurting my grade which is having the biggest impact on me.
Though I do not have parents to monitor my attendance anymore, I get out of bed each morning and leave to go to school. Though no one is there to punish me for low grades, I study subjects that I struggle with and strive to finish every assignment. Not content with one semester grade in English 10, this year I took the initiative and volunteered to retake that semester for a better mark. It isn’t easy to perform well in school while keeping a job, but I do my best anyway and I succeed because of my drive. When others would give up and throw a worksheet in the trash or call into work for extra study time, I maintain both sides of my schedule with satisfying
