Looking back, there were several poignant moments when I was struggling with my classes and would have given up trying to achieve my goals. However, I chose to endure those moments because I believe that those challenges were there for my betterment. For example, my Accounting and Microeconomics class last semester served to be one of the greatest challenges I had to go through. There came a point when I almost failed several long tests and had a low grade in several class activities. The difficulty pushed me to work harder and harder.

We had finally completed high school and were ready to move on to the next step in our life: college. The moment the head master of my school had announced us as the graduating class of 2011, we all tossed our caps into the air and we were happier than ever. As soon as we paraded out of the ceremony, sadness began to emerge. We were saddened because most of us were moving on to different colleges and we were not going to be able to enjoy each other’s company everyday like we did in high school. Although many people have told me that the best times of your life are spent in college, I knew I would still miss my friends from high school as we moved on to the next chapter in our lives.
Teuila Seumanutafa TASK ONE: Explain the value of play and exploration. The purpose of this task is to explain the value of children’s play and exploration. In doing this it helps us define what we think the value of children’s play is, and what others think the value of play is. “Just by watching young children it is easy to see that play is often stimulation and rewarding, and that they get a great deal of emotional satisfaction from playing” (Sheidan, 1999). As a mother and teacher I have always been fascinated with how children learn.
For now I flashback on the things that have brought me this far in my endless journey. So many people have influenced my life in different ways. From the crazy friends that I have grown up with and now consider family to the immature boys who I thought I loved, but broke my heart, they all will have an everlasting influence on my life. In elementary school, I met Chelsea Phillips. She was my first best friend; I was so upset when she had to move.
There is a huge range of subjects both academic and vocationally based that can be studied and learned to develop new knowledge and skills. What we learn through formal education can be an underpinning factor in the career we do, and it also helps employers to recognise candidates for job vacancies that have relevant skills, subject knowledge and training to help them fulfil their job roles. Through my own experiences of working with young children in a nursery and after school club, I would define education in this situation as learning the basic skills and knowledge to prepare them for their oncoming adult lives. Children are like sponges and develop rapidly, learning a huge variety of different basic skills on a daily basis. This is delivered in a fun way, often with the children not realising they are actually learning through their play and daily interactions and experiences.
Richard Feyman is another author who agreed with both Bacon and the public school system, Feyman stated, “with more knowledge comes a deeper and more wonderful mystery” (225). With this new mystery being attained it opens up many new doors that the student will be able to explore and pursue, they will have time to discover their likes and dislikes which will help them narrow down or specify their goals for a future job proving their education successful. In addition to being well rounded one must be willing to take all opportunities presented to them, in other
I play an integral role in preparing them for their futures so I need to support them, and create a rich and encouraging environment that empowers every child to succeed. In order to keep students engaged I will need to be organised in my planning and implementation of every lesson. I will also need to develop my teaching appropriately, it needs to be relevant to the students prior learning, interests and learning needs. Standard one requires me to be flexible, creative and to take a learner-centered approach to teaching that is imbedded with the use of ICTs. Generation Y have been born into a technological era, which makes them natural visual and kinesthetic learners.
The students were apathetic, my colleagues were unimpressed with me, and at the end of the year I was crushed when I received an average performance review. When I switched schools, under the impression that a change of scenery would improve my experience, I somehow carried with me in my bag of tricks the same perfectionism and tendency to overwork that had poisoned my first experience. To my frustrated mind, it was as though my previous school’s faculty had gone backstage, changed costumes, and reappeared in new garb to undermine me. That year, I was so determined to make a name for myself locally that I worked myself into an almost hysterical state of constant anxiety and busy-ness. Responding to every emergency, I took on all the weaknesses of the struggling school system in an effort to feel important and indispensable.
