I can honestly say math is not my best subject since I constantly went in the morning or after school to receive help from my teacher but it paid off when I saw my grade. These classes were a challenge but my perseverance and self-determination pulled me through, showing my academic skills when I received A's. I say that I have the strength to maintain my grades despite the struggles I face, which I know the NHS tends to look at. Overall, my character and academic skills have made me a strong candidate to be part of NHS. My willingness to face challenges has me happy to prove myself to NHS, showing myself in different ways.
My grades and choice of classes prove the effort that I put forth in my learning. Working hard now can only pay off in the future. Learning now creates a well-rounded human being. Working to learn is why I am so dedicated to my studies now. If there is o... ... middle of paper ... ...e school, such as; Pelotonia, Light the Night for leukemia and lymphoma, Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities, etc… For many of these organizations I have volunteered more than once.
To conclude I’d like to say that something I’ll remember from this class years from now would be the great class experience. Everyone was very accepting and non-judgmental during the course of our class. Even when having to present in front of the class (one of my least favorite things to do) I didn’t feel that nervous, which is rare. I’ll forever be changed by the knowledge I’ve gain from this class because before I would have never imagined so many therapeutic accomplishments could become of group work. I plan to use this course quite a bit in my future career and hopefully help many people by the means of group work.
I had difficulties understanding things in middle school but getting into high school was the right part of understanding education systems and being excited about it. My life had changed a lot and I was able to get through struggles because of my education background. Education has been always special thing for me because of what I had to go through to learn. I had appreciated when I got the chance to learn limitless versus had grown very limited
GPAs will increase with a well-balanced education. There will be less failing classes as an overall. Usually teachers provide students with a lot of schoolwork that can be completed upon thorough studying. However, there’s no room left to do well in any other classes. A student can study really hard to get an A in one class, but barely pass all the other classes or study moderately to have al... ... middle of paper ... ... spend time with with family and friends.” It is very clear that getting rid of school on Friday is very beneficial to students as well as teachers in success, and teachers not having to reiterate EVERYTHING multiple times.
For example, I’m struggling with math because it’s a new material, but instead of dropping the class I’m going to do anything so I can pass that class. Even if I fail the class this semester, I will take it again and get a better grade because I’m not a quitter. Another example is I make sure to be from ten to fifteen minutes early for my classes. These strengths will not just help me in my school, but it will always help me throughout life, and I can pass this advice to my kids and they can pass it to their
Throughout high school writing papers and essays were very difficult for me, almost every assignment I would seek help from others. Whether it was from my fellow students, family members, or teachers, their advice helped me tremendously. My senior year I took a Creative Writing course, which I believe helped me a lot, because I would struggle to write a paragraph, but now I can put a paper together. Coming into college I knew writing was a major skill to conquer, but I still feel like I can improve a lot yet. Furthermore, my critical reading skills need much improvement, I have no problem reading a passage or book; however, I do have trouble with comprehending what I read.
This showed me that writing can be used to express emotion and it was not just something you had to do in school for a grade. Since I had someone to listen to me share my mental state with, it allowed my behavior to improve immensely. Writing is something I use daily to cope with life’s issues. It allows me to escape from the outside world and just write. I can’t thank Mrs. Williamson enough for all she did for me in creating a strong writer.
Our low income was the culprit-on-pushing-me to get started. I have been struggling for so long that now it is time for me to make a real difference in my life and those around me, hopefully resulting in an increase in my income, and self-worth. Working with students at the high school level in Special Ed and resource has been my main focus in the last few years. I really enjoy working one-on-one and having the responsibility of running a whole class. I have gotten better at being able to reach the students that everyone else has given up on.
Middle school became a turning point in my life, and I knew I had to depend on myself if I wanted to achieve my goals. I kept my grades up and continued to excel in my honors classes. Throughout my high school years, many teachers inspired me and others disappointed me. It was because of this that I decided I wanted to be the teacher that gives students the desire to achieve and not the teacher that loves to humiliate. It wasn’t until my senior year in high school that I knew English would be my field of expertise thanks to my senior English teacher.
