They didn’t even know if school would still be around now; they thought that teaching would fail, all together giving up on education. Students didn’t have computers or pens; they had chalkboards and ink pens to work with. In the 1900s every student would have to walk miles to reach the school, if your family was privileged or worked on a farm and had a horse, you could then ride the horse to school, but only the males; females were not allowed to ride. There was one stove in the very front of the classroom for when it was cold. Could you imagine having one stove to heat and warm up an entire room?
Some people thought of me as a prankster and risk taker. At the age of five, I was stricken with polio but managed to make a full recovery, I still had a slight stutter but that was fine. My mother raised me as a single parent. I never knew my father; a private in the United States Army during World War II. My mother worked long 12 hours days so I made sure to cook, clean, and everything else so I could be as much of a help to her as possible, I even did the laundry.
Even though we have been taught a thousand times before through trainings and information videos and pamphlets the first thing you should do is put on gloves, but as a teacher you grow a bond with the children in your class and after a while you think of them as your own, that combined with the responsibility to protect them at all times your first thought when they are in pain and injured is not to go rummaging around for gloves before tending to the injured child. This exact situation happened in my classroom a few weeks ago, and my reaction also was to grab the child without gloves. After I stopped the immediate gush of blood, I asked a co-worker to get me gloves. However, I realized my hands and arms were already covered with this child’s blood and I was fully exposed to any diseases this child may carry. Then I realized, I wasn’t aware of the medical history on this child, so how could I know if I was at any serious risk?
My problems don’t stop here. My children don’t go to school because they have to work with me. However, if there is one simple solution to all of these problems, it’s a reform for my children – for my family. A reform to TANF because did you know that 1 in 7 Americans went without
Role Strain: I try to be a good mother and wife, but I find that I do not have enough hours in the day to do all the house cleaning, keep the children free of germs, shop properly to provide the right nutrients for the children and my husband, to keep the car in good order, get them to school safely, to keep up to date with the world news, to provide them with the right moral guidelines in world which is constantly changing and It becomes a real strain to try to keep up with all that needs to be done. My husband works for the City of Conway so he is out of the house by 6:00am and doesn’t get home until 5:00pm. So, everything falls on me, all day, and everyday. I try to find some balance and tell myself that no matter what I do there is always going to be more that needs to be done that won’t get done. I have to convince myself that tomorrow is another day and what didn’t get done to day can get done tomorrow; otherwise I can literally drive myself crazy.
Nabila Shafi 1/23/13 English 1010 John Dursema My first step Moving to America was one thing, but starting school here was a completely different scenario in my life. I was very afraid of starting school. At the same time, I needed to learn the language. I remember the first day I walked into Granger Elementary, I wanted to run and hide in a hole and never come out. I felt absolutely terrible.
The next morning, he had prepared her a list of chores for her to do while he was out in town. The house was indecent, and tremendously filthy as if no one lived there. The windows had gaping holes, doors hung on it’s hinges at a jaunty angle, as well as having combs all over the house. That being the case, she didn’t quite finish all her tasks that day, it would at least take another week. Therefore she went to bed, without seeing Dante.
(Schermerhorn, Osborn, Uhl- Bien, & Hunt, 2012) Personally, I have worked a 4/10 work week and loved it. Of course, that job was when I did not have a child. I could not work that type of scheduling now. I can barely get him to his after school activities when I leave work at 5:15pm. My childcare will not stay open passed 6pm.
I know that I could let my 10 year old daughter walk to school by herself, but with shooting all the time I walk her to school. Sometimes, I get scared just sitting in my house doing nothing. It’s crazy to know that you are not even safe in your own home. The gangs are taking over society and holding us hostage in our homes. I don’t let my kids play outside, because of the violence.
