Some days I think I have no home work and won't go on to grade portal to double check. Then I will go to school and realize we had homework or test. Sometimes I would even check, but I would wait to check the morning it is due and try to finish it before 1st period. This is one of my biggest problems. Also I'm not the only person who does this.
Not to mention my memory isn’t as sharp as it was years ago so I have to study extra hard and do extra work to help memorize what I am doing. What I read and learn today I am not going to remember for test three weeks from now. So I have to take advantage of the teach and learn center to learn the subject like the back of my hand no questions ask. In addition to my age, having little money is an obstacle in my education as well. Going to school to better my education is quite expensive and time consuming.
Literacy Autobiography Playing sports, socializing with friends, and working – All reasons why I am an alliterate reader and writer. I never realized the importance of paying attention in school to learn to read and write properly when I was younger. Although I graduated from high school and have a diploma, the lack of initiative and motivation in school has led me to be an alliterate reader and writer today. While in high school, playing sports was more important then learning how to read and write properly. Socializing with friends and going out to have fun was another reason why I did not learn how to write proficiently.
I knew college wasn't a place for me. My grammar and punctuation was bad, and math was also, a poor subject for me too. I struggled a lot just to finish high school, I managed to make it through high school. I had to take it one day at a time. Sometimes, I didn't want to go to school because I knew I was going
Toni Hall September 18,2012 Writing Bill Nedrow I had to cope with being the new kid at two different schools. At my first school I didn’t know anyone, the environment was different, and they had us working. At my second school I knew a lot of people, I wasn’t use to the children behavior, and events happened that I never experienced. Switching from school to school is very difficult. The very first high school that I attended was Christ The King which was a catholic school, and because I was the new kid I really didn’t know anyone.
Brianna Stahl WR 121/400, Ms. Roush Unit 1: Dialoguing with Others about Ideas Monday, November 04, 2013 Who does not need education, apparently you? Do children really need an education and if they do are they in school too long? This question causes many different reactions from me because I see endless possibilities with schooling and without a financial barrier I would attend school for the rest of my life. As a working adult, who has little time, I often think that schooling goes on for too long. In his article “Against School: How Public Education Cripples Our Kids and why” John Taylor Gatto blames the education system for creating a cattle drive that sends people towards a specific labor goal.
In his story, Brody explains that he was not a very bright student and that he hated school. Until one day a very special girl caught his eye and he suddenly found ambition in himself. Nothing could get in his way from getting to his goal, in order to gain Debbie’s attention he would need to learn and keep on learning to then get her attention and then win her heart. Brody started reading and continued to use his brain as a sponge absorbing every bit of information he could withhold to bring to the table at school and impress the girl of his dreams. Brody was on a path that he then could not alter even if he wanted to.
After I graduated, I did not know where I wanted my life to head so I did not go to school and just worked and had fun. Then my son came, and all my priorities changed. I started wanting better things for him. So I went back to school and found that I really want to be a teacher because of how fast they learn and are influenced. I want to be able to influence children to make the right decisions in life.
That changed my life a lot. Now I was in a situation where I had to focus on work to provide for my mother. Bills just kept building up and it got to the point where I was working too much, I was too tired to go to school. So I was kicked out because I missed too many days. I can go on and on about my life after that but that would end up being a book instead of a paper.
Returning to School A year ago I never would have imagined that I would be back in school. It was something I had wanted to do, but I had continued putting it off. It was never the right time, or I could not figure out how to manage everything, or even how I was going to pay for it. Lately, I have been going through a lot of personal changes that has made me also want to better my place in life. Deciding to continue my education, I felt, was the best way to do this.
