I knew the lesson for maths and the power point was up on the computer. After 10 mins the teacher had not returned so we decided to get the class started on the lesson. The teacher was out of the class for 40 mins and by the time she had come back we had a majority of the lesson given and she had only a small bit left to do. During this time I was very nervous as it was my first whole ... ... middle of paper ... ...y skills from reflections and learn to progress in a positive manner.

In my mind I was telling myself I can finish the rest of the test strong. Forty minutes was finally over and I complete the ACT test and it was time to go home and eat lunch. In my mind I felt confident that I scored high on my test and could not wait to get my test scores back. After five weeks waiting to get my test scores back, they finally came in and I did not score well at all. After taking this test for the 1st time I prepared myself to take the test again, which turned out to be eight more times.
I plan to achieve this by taking more than 12 credit hour classes, and passing them all with B 's or better. In order to pass them, I 've got to study a lot harder, and do every single homework assignment given to me. During my meeting with my advisor, she was explaining to me how the classes I had together weren 't probably the best to take together and that I should see about swtiching them around. That helped me a lot because the less stress I have on my part, the easier it will be for me to get good grades. Another smart goal I have is to achieve at least a 3.5 G.P.A all four years.
Through dedication to my studies, I completed some a month earlier than my peers. I realized I had the work ethic to enroll in honors and advanced placement classes in high school. Throughout my years in high school I have had some ups and downs, but never have I let that hinder my academic excellence. I have taken advance placement English and Latin, and honor math courses all of which have showed me that I can succeed at any level. My first two years of high school I had enrolled in computer science courses, which I thought was going to be a typing class.
In the last year of my schooling in grade 12, I was given a task along with three other boys to visit all the junior classes and collect information from the juniors about how the school teachers have helped them outside their classrooms and what extra had the faculty done that year to help the students. At first some boys were hesitant to speak upon this matter. So there was another task standing in front of me which was to tell everyone not to feel afraid and tell the truth as it would help to improve the faculty for the coming year. I was given this job because I have always had a nice bond with all the juniors of my school. The next day as all the boys gave their reports, my team was very impressed with my work because everyone had provided us with the right kind of information.
Recently, the eighth graders of Parkway West Middle School’s Gifted program went through the White House Decision Center at the Truman Library in Independence, Missouri. The library is a long way away from their hometown of St. Louis, so the teens had to catch their charter bus bright and early on Friday, November 8th. “It was strange to be at the school before anyone else!” said student Betsy Wait, giggling during the interview. On the way, the students ate lunch and then performed the Truman Library’s simulation for about four hours. Mrs. Carter, the instructor of the program who is very dedicated to her students, reported that “The kids were tuckered out.
After a long 2 hours it was finally time to go home. I said goodbye to my teacher and my friends and almost forget to take my math homework home. I went home and surfed the internet for funny videos of people falling. IT WAS HILLARIOUS! After some good laughs, I decided to do my math homework on pages 82-84.
For all classes’ essays I just take ten or twenty minutes to put all the ideas on my mind in writing block. After that, I take other 40 minutes organizing the order of the ideas in the computer. And finally I get to the end of my essay polishing the final details in 1 hour. Writing an essay at the beginning of the course took me between four or five hours. Now I can do the same work in two or three hours.
To my dismay, I would not be able to change my class schedule until the middle of the fall semester. As a result I entered an Algebra 2 class in the twelfth week of school and had to make up months of homework. However, despite all these complica... ... middle of paper ... ...earn about the work of great scientists including Sir Isaac Newton, Michael Faraday, and my favorite, James Clerk Maxwell. I also was grateful to have learned about waves and energy, my favorite physics concepts and the cornerstone behind modern physics, with unique tie-ins to mathematics. Knowing my time with this course would be basically transient; I relished every moment and hope to further study this topic in college and graduate school.
I especially like my IB Biology and IB Art classes because I enjoy utilizing my creativity and also because I've had an interest in biology and medicine since I was in the third grade. Also, both classes involve a lot of hands on interaction. My classes and the homework I have typically fit in with the rest of my day pretty smoothly. I usually come home from school, start my homework for about an hour or so, then I go to basketball practice. Once I return from practice, I finish any left over homework that I have.
