Things have really been looking up for me in many different ways; I was offered a part time job at the school itself as a student-employee. Feelings My first week back at school has been arduous, but very good and cultivating. I was very eager to begin school and my new job and also to meet my classmates once more. It was somewhat disappointing for me when school did not reopen as scheduled. Sociology is an intriguing subject; learning how people interact in a group opposed to when they are by themselves really opened my eyes to the reality of daily living.
I actually want to my best this year in college to get straight A’s and learn as much as I can. So I guess my worst college fear won’t really be a problem at all. The other fear I am worried about is that I will take all these college classes and still have no idea what I want do as a career. I am a pretty indecisive person so I am really going to have to love something to decide to do it for most of my life. Maybe I will have the opposite problem and I will like a whole bunch of things and won’t be able to decide between them.
Once all the students arrive, we spend several days getting to know each other. These days encompass classroom interviews, playing inside and outside games, bringing in memory boxes from home and various other activities that help promote a community of learners. Since not all students can find their “niche” on their own these games help them locate students with similar interests. My goal as an educator is to provide all students with a non-threatening environment where they feel welcome and want to take risks and
This may mean that I attend an afterschool activity, such as watching them play a sport or perform a dance recital. I feel that students will learn more for me if they know I care about them as a person not just as a student. I am known in our building as the HAPPY teacher. My classroom door is painted as a big smiley face. So, as I meet and greet every student by name each morning they are entering the Mrs. Freeman’s Happy Zone.
When I was first asked this question, it intrigued me. I have always loved learning about everything and reading, so seeing people who have taken years off from school fathoms me. Because I love learning, I have always wanted to obtain my degree for personal development as well as having a higher education underneath my belt. I come from a low-income family, so they could not afford to send me to college when I graduated from high school. Besides my father, who passed away when I was young, if I complete my degree I would be the only one in my family to have a college degree.
Second, ”Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” as quoted by Nelson Mandela. That is a quote to change your life, and you are only as powerful as you strive to be. I chose to go to Ashworth College because of the amazing reviews for the accounting program. I found similar courses online and at universitys close to me, but they were not appealing to me. The degree program I found at Ashworth was perfect, and the affordable tuition was the pivotal choice for my final decision.
So I entered high school in all regular classes. I immediately became entrenched in a world of boredom. All the classes were easy, I had straight A’s, but I was not motivated to learn. This event showed me that faculty members are not interested in the academic interests of their students, but following the system. At the time I did not realize that I was just part of a system, I thought that
Academic Challenge During my first semester at Health Careers High School, I faced several unanticipated problems which impacted my high school education. The most severe difficulties I faced were studying and procrastination. Graduating from a middle school with a high B average, I never realized studying may perhaps be an issue. I went into a magnet high school with an understanding that I wouldn’t struggle and it would just be like middle school, with the exception of more independence. I was wrong.
It wasn’t bad enough that I had to be up an hour early for my am classes, but as much as I prepared for the first day I couldn’t find my History books. I didn't really want to go to class unprepared for the first day, but my father told me it would be for the best. I arrived at the campus at about seven thirty. I entered the busy parking lot, I had been at the campus quite a lot before, but I never quite understood the enormity of the campus till I seen it with all of the students and cars. I hadn’t received a parking sticker yet so the campus police wouldn’t let me park.
I do know that I have changed very fast, only because I graduated from high school and entered the university, I am not sure whether this speeding up in changing good or bad. The only thing that I can realize is that I have to change to survive in collage and I definitely have benefited. In college life, there are a lot of things that you have to worry about besides your studying such as: social life, languages if you are an international student, time management, financial aid…..etc. Personally, I think time management is the point that most freshmen students struggle with during their first year in college, so it
