My involvement in Science Olympiad includes my position as president of the club. As president of Science Olympiad, I am responsible for running practices and supporting my teammates in preparing for their events, all while preparing for my own events. I provide advice to my teammates for how to tackle studying for a certain topic or building a certain system, along with resources to solve problems on their own, and advocate for their needs to the team’s coach. My involvement in math team includes my position as vice president of math team and my selection onto Chicago’s regional math team. I lead my school’s math team by performing well, as evidenced by rankings in the state, and by organizing the efforts of my team.
I would not say writing English assignment is very hard for me, but I mean I make some mistakes. We wrote four paper assignments this quarter, two of them about the story we read in class, one from a story and outside material and one about English 101 class at itself which is this paper. We must submit the rough draft before the due date of the assignment, which helps us to have clarification from our instructor and from a classmate. I am always improving after each paper I wrote, because I follow up with the comment I received, edit my paper then make an appointment with my instructor before I submit my final draft. These comments make me feel confident in the next paper.
Working with children can be extremely challenging. Because of my values, I am determined to come to the best solution I can when dealing with challenging situations. I also use my determination to keep my place of work tidy and organized. I consider myself a reliable teacher and coworker. If any of the kids have any concerns or questions, they can rely on me to try my best to help them find the answer.
In my school and community, we have found that there is a large setback with the incoming freshmen and their ability to adapt to the new atmosphere and changes of high school. They either have social problems, home life problems, or high school is just a huge change for them. Six years ago, my school created a program hoping to solve that problem, the mentor/leadership program, which is open to juniors and seniors. I applied, and was accepted into this program my junior year. In the mentor program you meet with a freshmen every week and discuss some of the challenges they are facing while adjusting to high school.
The phrase: “Helping others is the way we help ourselves” from Oprah Winfrey inspired me to choose this profession. Helping people solve their problems, giving them the opportunity to let off steam and share their feelings through confidential talks makes this profession unique and exceptional. I have abilities and values, such as: persistence, kindness, and loyalty, that are highlighted and essential to this job. Also, I have a plan that I will already start following it because this is what I want to be. I want to be a person that happily stays the whole day trying to understand peoples’ thoughts to assistance them in life.
In highschool I was highly committed to a program called "Breakthrough" for my last three years in high school. Breakthrough helps first generation students go to college, starting to work with them in middle school. It's an amazing organization and helps the kids every step of the way, whether it be tutoring for a hard math exam in 8th grade or application help when applying to college in 12th grade. My role was to be a mentor leader during Saturday sessions. From 8am to 4pm, we would lead 12 - 15 students through activities to learn about college, or just work on important skills such as writing, reading and research.
He trusts all of us as a model for us to trust him and others. He helps us through our problems as an individual and as a team. He gives us reason to trust. We don't realize it at times but Coach Ricardo is always there, as we start facing difficulties as a team, he's there to raise us back up. He doesn't let us give up because our teammates trust us to do our best and work through our physical
It is also about studying and making those grades! But my friends positively influence my study habits as well. They encourage me to study rather than get distracted by other things such as my phone, internet, and procrastination. Just the other night Justin and Giselle were helping me with practice questions for my midterm. It was pretty great of them to help me because I got an A on the test.
Case Scenario Practicing in a school setting, there are numerous individuals in the same building looking to positively impact and change students’ lives. Interdisciplinary staff consistently work together to meet the various needs of the diverse student population. As the social worker, I am privy to the strengths and weaknesses of clients as they are presented to me by the student and his/her family and shared in interdisciplinary team meetings upon the consent to do so by the student’s parent(s) or guardian(s). Teachers are only present and involved in the interdisciplinary meetings when a student assigned to their class is being discussed. However, after a meeting last week, a teacher sends me an e-mail inquiring about a student she had
This is the reason why I had a long enduring battle to be able to speak a new language and unstable academic performance throughout my college career. During Spring Quarter of 2017, I had the opportunity to volunteer in a program called Conversation Partner Program through my diversity study class. In this program, I conversed with my partner, who was new in the United States, on a weekly basis. Each week, we talked about our cultures, interests, and hobbies. As this program helped my partner practice English, it also helped me gain self-esteem and confidence to express myself openly about what my academic and personal challenges were to the people who know me best.
She spends many hours tutoring her peers and helping Spanish speaking students to help improve their content skills and English. She has spent time at the Boys and Girls Club and at Centennial BOCES tutoring and translating. Many young people in our community have benefited from her willingness to give back. She has great understanding, especially for a high school student, how much change can happen if we all help each other. English is not Lucero 's native language.
I expect it to be really challenging and hard. From what I have heard you get a lot of homework and essays. Since my teachers in middle school are really good I don’t think I will have a problem in high school. I also expect high school to be a lot of fun. It will be fun because I get to have classes with my friends and I get to do fun activities like gym and different clubs.
These time commitments taught me to manage my time and to never take weekends for granted. However, even though I have been very active, I have also been a conscientious student who has strived to achieve excellence in my educational endeavors. I have maintained a
I have taken 3 AP classes previously, and currently enrolled in 2 for senior year of high school. AP classes have prepared me for college classes which take time to study and comprehend. I have also taken plenty of Honors classes, by having the opportunity to expand my learning. I was involved in Cure Club, HOSA Club and Beta Club my junior year of high school. After I changed high schools, after my junior year, I joined HOSA and Beta again at my new school.
Link Crew I would like to be a Link Leader because I remember how scared I was as a freshman coming to the high school. Having two link leaders made me feel less scared. I was glad there was someone I could ask my questions to. I enjoy working with people and helping others, and I hope that I can help the upcoming freshmen with the questions they have and do fun things for them because I know what it meant to me. I think that I should be chosen for Link Crew because I am always able to help out, give directions to lost freshmen, influence them in a positive manner, and be a kind upperclassman.
