Educational Autobiography My education journey has been through some setbacks, but I have continued to push forward and conquered. I have felt that I have a fixed mind set and just am not capable of achieving some things. After learning the difference between growth and fixed mindset I have realized that everyone is capable of learning anything through hard work and dedication. My biggest accomplishment in school is when I graduated high school early despite what others said. I decided that public high school was not for me, because of all of the distractions I had.
It was important that I go to a good university or I won’t be able to get a good job when I graduated. Even though, I didn’t rank as high as I was in middle school, I was doing well enough on my exams; my counselor and teachers told me that I might be able to go to any universities of my choosing. I was very relieved and satisfied with myself; this was my life goal after all. The life of a high schooler was much harder and more completed than a middle schooler. I had to study every day to keep up with the amount of materials that were given out in class—they were much deeper and complicated.
As students everything we achieved leads us to the path into college; everything the students worked for from k-12 pays off the moment they receive that acceptance letter. In today’s society succeeding in college is the key to live the ideal life. Truth is students will face obstacles in college, which can cause failure. One of the main factors is stress, 8/10 students in a college would frequently experiences daily (stress.org). Anxiety Depression Association of America’s Study showed 34 percent of students in a college would feel depressed, 13 percent are diagnosed with mental conditions such as depression, or anxiety, and 9 percent had considered suicide.
In the article, “How to Make It in College, Now That You’re Here” Brian O’Keeney discusses many different techniques to help freshmen, and any other students in college that need the assistance. O’Keeney’s article is separated into three main sections to help the reader focus on specific things: good grades, organization, and mental health. Personally, I believe that organization and mental health is what students need to be focusing on the most. Once entering college there are certain things that some students do not know, and it greatly affects their mental health. For example, my best friend and I just graduated high school this year, and once we entered college, we felt lost because of the things we did not know how to do.
It is time to turn the tables and test the teachers on the challenge of college. Throughout high school, students are told all about how difficult college is and what to expect. Not yet having experienced it, the students typically prepare for the worst. They teach themselves how to study based on the standards of their high school. They write papers, do homework, and participate in class in the attempt to meet the expectations of their teachers.
I remember the teacher calling my parents one day to set up a conference about what strategies they could use at school and home to help me grasp the contents of both reading and writing. At that point I was then diagnosed with a learning disability in both reading and writing as well as mathematics. At the end of my first grade year the teacher and principal advised my parent to hold me back into the first grade or otherwise I would fail the second grade due to lack of reading and writing skills, So like most caring parents would do, mine chose to hold me back to see if I would improve on reading as well as writing. It was extremely hard for me because at this age I was being made fun of for not being like the other students. My second year in the first grade began, my new teacher had set me up with a resource
Educational Autobiography I am Careena Loy and in this essay I am going to conclude talking about my high school experience. Through my past education I went through good and bad experiences where it me to struggle now through college. I also learned things out of school that made me who I am today. I will also be sharing the ways I have been praised because of my hard work and it has got me to where I am right now. Overall, high school was not a good experience for me just because there was a lot of drama and I wanted to be in college already with mature adults.
While in college, I have learned that there are difficult transitions you have to be willing to make in order to maximize your college success. Pace of class was one of the most difficult transitions I had to adapt to in my first semester of college. In high school you normally discussed one type of topic a day, however, that is not the case in college. Multiple topics are throw in the course of one class period. Strategy that
School will teach you that cheating has consequences and will get you in big trouble. You will have access to many tutoring sessions and much help as needed. They will prepare you and give you information for a dreadful final exam. Some class’s subjects are very similar and are intro classes for college. High school and college will show you how to be responsible with your work While we often see school is always the same from high school to college .They do have similarities but the big difference is the classwork, your freedom and the environment around.
.I remember when I started my first semester at college. It was different and tougher than high school. I felt like life was punishing me for my decision of reaching higher goals and education. I started first as a full time student, but then it got even tougher to me because I had to manage my time between my work and school. Time management was my only enemy during my first semester.
