Therefore, high school teachers expect their students to turn in assignments on time and be in class. If those expectations are not met, some high school teachers will not accept the assignment or will expect the students to find out what they missed on their own. “The transition from a public high to a top U. can be difficult, stressful, and frustrating.

Sharpe Professor Tracy Moore ENG 103: Orientation to the College Experience 2 March 2018 Reflection Paper on Study Skills and Strategies for Beginning College Students College can be challenging, so I believe you have to set some goals, better study habits and learn how to manage your time. You have to set goals that are workable, positive, realistic, measurable, and controllable (Reynolds, 25). You have to maintain a positive attitude toward your assignment and schooling. In doing so, you will boost your drive for doing what you need to be done, as well as, becoming realistic with trying to achieve your set goals. The goals that you set have to be measurable, and controllable, which will provide you with enough time to correct

Now I am in college where I am currently studying to be a secondary mathematics teacher. There are several reasons why I want to become a teacher, but the two most important reasons are to make a difference and to enrich the learning process. Everyone has to have some reason of why he or she decides to pursue his or her particular career choice. I want to become a teacher so that I can make a difference in a young person’s life. My high school calculus teacher, who was also my role model, made a difference in my life.
Reaching My Students Through Real World Experiences High school teachers face the challenge of preparing their students for the real world. Students need real world preparation, not just acumen. Reaching my students involves building encouraging relationships and a sense of security within the classroom. Sharing my personal experiences, as well as the testimonies of others, can be an effective motivational tool for preparing college-bound students for the real world. My role as a teacher involves communicating the many obstacles college students face.
As students in college classrooms sit and listen to their teacher’s requirements and lectures, students often asked themselves why am I here? Why am I taking this class? Is it relevant to my major, my life or career choice? College-level institutions of learning have a hard time figuring out what is the best way to teach students and what works for the student’s best. According to John Dewey “how students are taught is as important as what they are taught” (415).

Whether they are teaching elementary school, middle school, high school or college/university, their main focus is to help students have a better understanding of a specific subject. In this essay, the topics that are being focused on are what a teacher’s duties are, the required education in order to become a teacher, job growth/outlook, plan for becoming an elementary school teacher, as well as the strengths and barriers. In an elementary school, teachers are required to know multiple subjects such as English, math, science, study skills as well as social skills. Educators are there to help, evaluate and grade students based on their performance. They also collaborate with their colleagues to gather more information on possible teaching strategies as well as any issues they may have with a particular activity or subject.

In short, teachers will encounter diverse student learning, and they need to do more than merely direct instruction that fulfills the school curriculum. Teachers also need to realize that their responsibility should be geared towards student learning. In order to ensure student learning, teachers must engage their students within the lesson, establish a positive, learning environment, and assess their students for the student’s sake.

During my high school experience, students had the opportunity to take college courses through our high school. This gave the more advanced students a chance to practice the same routine as “normal” students, but still challenge and educate themselves. Abolishing high school would not solve any problems in our educational system. There are many ways to improve upon our school system; however, we need to start at the beginning. In an essay by Harley Tong, high school is portrayed as “a waste of time and a struggle to remain interested in schoolwork.” He continues to describe his own experiences and how they led him to begin his college career two years earlier than most students.
