A significant moment of my life had to be the day I graduated from high school. It was on May 26, 2016, I had woken up like it was any other day, and I went about my daily routines, I had spent that morning with my sister because she was visiting from North Carolina and was soon due to deliver her baby. It wasn’t until 10am that I realized I had to get ready for graduation. At first it hadn’t hit me yet that this was one of the biggest days of my life. I had gotten ready while my sister did my nails and my makeup, while my mother helped me with my hair.
After our family talk we would prepare our flavorstar dishes to be wrapped up to be taken to my grandmother house. As I would help my mother get the food ready I would admire the cinnamon/ sugary scented sweet potato pie which has always been my favorite. Once the food was covered we would all dash down the hall in our bed room and scuttle to get the house clean. Feeling like superwomen and a ball of light, we managed to clean the house in twenty five minutes. After everyone was dressed, we assisted my mom with putting the food in the car.
A few weeks later, I opened my own private studio at age 13 with two students. In 2010, I was awarded “Most Dedicated Young Piano Teacher” by my teacher's district teaching association. After practicing with the choir and teaching my first 30-minute lesson, I knew I wanted to teach and direct for the rest of my life. After finalizing my occupational goal, I noticed I was engrossed in life’s routine. With Homecoming activities approaching, my role as Student Council President increased to include more meetings and late nights preparing a fun filled week for the entire student body.
Within her classroom news letter she explains to me how she uses it to inform the parents what went on in the past month and will be starting on in the beginning month. She feels this is a good way for the parents to see what their child is learning, plus if there is an upcoming field trip she mentions in the news letter the parents can volunteer to come. Within the centers newsletters she mentions how she normally writes a little paragraph on what the class has just completed or learned. For the invitations to the parents on Friday she sends home a letter to the parent’s upcoming events for the week. She writes in the note inviting the parents to read to the class, and come in a volunteer for field trips that week.
The day I woke up realizing it was my graduation day, I was smiling all day long knowing that I had made my family proud of me. I remember everything about my graduation day: my party, cake, dress, makeup, hair, cap and gown, and the gifts I got from family and friends. I opened my eyes at around 9:00 a.m.; I could not imagine that today was my graduation day. I was so excited to get ready for the day I had dreamt of for twelve years. I called my cousin Sandra to remind her to do my makeup because she is a makeup artist.
Having a mom that is a teacher he had very high standards for himself making all A’s in honors classes. Quickly I began to look up to Nick academically. He mentioned one day in gym that he was going to essentially skip senior year and go to college in a dual enrollment program where he would be getting credits for his senior year to graduate and getting credits for college. Knowing at this point it would be beneficial for me to do this programs, I began studying for the test to get into the program. Night after night of studying the test was in only a week.
A month after the examinations of class 12 were over, my friends wanted to have a reunion before getting into college. I volunteered to organise the entire meet alone. My first aim was to prioritise the list of most important things to take care and then carry on with the rest. Firstly I mad... ... middle of paper ... ... career option for me in the future because I was always good with my accounts and math.

Having my mom as a teacher in kindergarten was like having recess all day long. However, she could always get me involved using her amazing imagination. When our family had to move to North Fork, Colorado to follow my dad’s job, my mother continued to teach me as well as my brother Andy. Her creativity never stopped... ... middle of paper ... ...sh a job, I am a college graduate and will now work smarter.

As they are taking their showers, I get a hot breakfast ready so they can come eat right after they get dressed. Sometimes it’s something simple like microwave pancakes but more often than not it’s orange juice, toast, scrambled eggs and a piece of fruit. After breakfast, as they are walking out the door to head to the bus, I hand them their backpacks and lunches. It would be much easier for me to sleep in and let my kids take care of themselves in the morning, but since I became a mother I have to put their needs ahead of my own. For me, being a dedicated parent means sacrificing sleep in order to make sure my children have a good start for the
When I received my diploma from Elkin High School on the evening of June 12th, 2015, I soon realized this would be the best day of my life. Looking back, I would have never imagined how much hard work and effort led up to that night. Since the beginning of my senior year, I had set several goals I wanted to accomplish before graduation. Those goals included graduating with honors, being inducted into the National Technical Honor Society for the second year, being inducted into National Honor Society, and being inducted into the Music Honor Society. Another goal I had going into my senior year, I wanted to be able to do an internship in the Labor and Delivery department at Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital.
