Throughout my twelve years of school there have been four teachers that have really stood out to me, and I hope to impact my students’ lives as much as they have mine. When my mom and I moved to Franklin, she worked at Needham Elementary School. Miss Marchant was a first grade teacher there, and she is the very reason why I want to be an educator. Ironically, I never had Miss Marchant as a teacher. Instead, everyday after school I went to her room to help her do anything she needed.

I started the conversation with the teacher who I will call “Jesse” by discussing the services for children with intellectual disability or modifications used in her classroom. She explained that only two children with special needs attend her class and both children have an aide to assist them during class. Jesse’s responsibility is to review the student’s file and determine what he r she is capable of doing in the classroom then assess that child based of his or her ability. Jesse has only been teaching for a little over a year and stated that she has not encountered and issues regarding the educational laws and regulations. Jesse and I also
Attitude, Legislation, and Litigation The education of students with disabilities has changed drastically over the years. Twenty years ago, classrooms were nearly devoid of exceptional students; and if any were to be enrolled in the school, they were sent in a class merely to be looked after. However, in today’s classroom, students with disabilities are highly valued and recognized by legislation as individuals worthy of fair instruction, where they can be acquainted with society and taught how to function successfully on their own. Teachers country-wide are expected to do everything thing in their power to fill the needs of each individual student in their classroom. Schools have implemented IEPs and RtIs to assure parents that their children are receiving adequate attention in their schooling.
They offered plenty of visual arts and fine arts classes which was perfect for me, since that is what I would like to do with my life. Another plus was that Twin Valley counted my 8th grade year of math, which left me with no math class for my senior year! So I would get to leave early every day and go to work early. It worked out very well and I was pleased. Overall, my experience at Twin Valley High school was alright.
Engage parents in meaningful ways in school activities, such as school health teams, tutoring, mentoring, or assisting with grant writing. Identify special opportunities for parents with limited resources or scheduling difficulties to participate in or contribute to classroom or extracurricular activities. Seek opportunities for parents and students to share their culture with others in school. Communicate regularly with families about school and classroom activities and policies by e-mail, letters, or updates on the school’s Web site. Translate materials into languages spoken in students’ homes.
Ms. Tubiolo isn’t stupid and knows when someone is cheating and I deserve what she gave me. I want to continue making my teachers and my parents proud of me but I am starting off on the wrong path. I’m not going to cheat anymore because this one thing has caused a lot of trouble and consequences for my actions. From now on I would rather take a late grade on an assignment then go through this all over again. I go to school to learn new things each and everyday but I can’t learn anything from copying off of another student’s homework assignment.
At the age of 11 my aunt passed away, so now I use that as a motivation to keep going and apply my mind to want to go to college. After middle school I maintained my good grades and leadership. When I went to the 10th grade I was chosen to be in Georgia Pacific’s YEATL program where we competed against other Aps schools. Now that I’m in the 11th I won’t have to take nothing but one GGT because I passed my entire end of course tests. Also I recently joined the Health Occupation Student Association (H.O.S.A) program where I am training to become an EMT.
Their convictions are that being a sole parent makes them stronger persons because they are forced to make all the decisions for themselves. They also no longer have any one to get in a fight with and no one to complicate things. One of the women says that her daughter is doing very well and that she could hardly imagine, if a man would be there, it would go any better. They also mention that the upbringing of a child, when being a single parent is more harmonious because they do not have to divide their attention between their children and their partners. 2.
