Today is our first day of being the leaders, doers, and problem solvers of the future. Those who persevere, who give it their all and approach each day with optimism will ultimately meet success and happiness. Of course, there will be many a failure on that windy road of life, but with dedication, we can do anything and make any dream come true. But, as we grow older and encounter success, we must not forget those who have had it rough, whose lives may have hit some potholes on the way, and we must take care of those who need a helping hand. As each of us leaves our mark on the world, be generous and be happy, and always remember the good times, good friends, and lessons learned at Marefat.
In her classroom her students get evaluated three times a yea... ... middle of paper ... ... and certain traditions that come with the holidays. For example, when it was Abraham Lincoln birthday she explained to her students how he was an important person in history and she read to her students a story about Abraham Lincoln. She feels that it is important for her classroom to have diversity. In Teacher ones classroom she mentions the way she meets with the parents for conferences and open houses is through communication. For the parent conferences it is optional three times a year this is to review the student’s progress within the classroom.
Mom and Dad, Tom and Jess, thanks for all the encouragement, support, and most important love and affection you have shown me every day. Without you, I am quite sure I would not be standing here and quite possibly might not have graduated tonight. Because of my great family, I have successfully overcome all sorts of downturns in eighteen short years. I figured I would not shy away from saying this in front of a crowd if I wrote it down in my speech, so, to my family—I love you. To succeed in this "real world," we all need to develop our own unique niche.
Tonight, we're here to celebrate our accomplishments [and you know we deserve it!] May we not forget how far we have come, and let us look to the future and continue to push ourselves to reach for our dreams and goals. Some time ago we took that all so important first step. We recognized the VALUE and significance of our educations and determined to better ourselves, and today each one of us has achieved an important goal. Congratulations to all of you.
She made me a mother, along with a 24-hour worrier and an insomniac. As I began to dwell more on the topic I realized that going to college has not only been one of my defining moments, it has made me who I am. With all the different classes we take Community College, we realize interests we never knew we had. My first three quarters here, I was in the Running Start program, which allowed me to graduate high school while taking college courses. I took a political science class, just to fulfill my American history credit, and I realized I love politics.
For example, during my senior year in high school, one of my teachers use to call parents after three continuously absences. Also, teachers give you deadlines which always add extra time the day an assignment is due. On the other hand, you have to learn how to manage you time in college. First, you meet with an advisor to arrange your classes considering your needs and time. If you don’t go to class, your teacher will mark you absence and they won’t worry why you did not attend.
Nothing though is worth doing unless you enjoy it, and knowing how deeply I enjoy it I understand my drive to and behind it. The stage is a place that I have been drawn too, and now it is a part of who I am, and with my passion, friendships, and enjoyment of this home away from home, it will continue to define who I am, and what I stand for. Passion is something that is a driving force for anyone who has ever tried to do something, especially when it is something one enjoys doing. People who have passion are the people who seem to have the biggest dreams, desires, and are more likely to fulfil those dreams and desires. I am passionate about acting, and the stage is my place for that.
Joshua is the fourth hearing-impaired student I have had the opportunity to teach in seven years at Northside. To accommodate the needs of my hearing impaired students, I took two sign language classes. I learned ASL (American Sign Language) and how to teach hearing impaired students by using a philosophy called Total Communication. I have chosen to do a case stud... ... middle of paper ... ...even with these threats to the internal and external validity of this case study, the researcher believes that the Total Communication approach would benefit any hearing impaired student mainstreamed in a regular classroom. Conclusion In a replication of this study, the researcher would continue to teach all first grade hearing impaired students to determine if their reading levels would increase by using Total Communication.
Having a positive influence in a student’s life is one of the most important tools they will use for the rest of their lives. I have seen the difference the teachers can make, and what I can do, it is too important to just walk away from. I may not be able... to help everyone but, t... ... middle of paper ... ...sated. This will give us all hope, and would show my kids that if I can do it, so can they; it would allow me to have a chance to improve not just my life, but my family’s and those students, which I would be able to help on a higher level. This is not just for me, but for my family, and all of the students that look up to me.
It has been said that the best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up. But as I reminisce about our years together at Lafayette, I realize it takes so much more to attain your dreams. Struggles, victories, joys, sorrows, understandings, confusions, these conscious experiences have paved the way for us to be here tonight, leading us to the realization of our dreams. This ceremony today marks the end to four nerve-wracking, diligent, years and the beginning of something which, although difficult to predict, is guaranteed to be at least the greatest adventure we as adults have embarked upon yet. The success, which we will confront and the many challenges, which lie ahead, will reflect upon the skills, we have acquired together.
