I like to show the people I love that I love and appreciate them. Whenever friends and family do something to help me I always let them know that I’m grateful. By putting God first in my life I feel that it allows me to really have a conscious. I want to treat people the way I want to be treated. So I normally try to go over and beyond to make sure everyone around me is happy or having a good time.
Welton encourage the students to achieve their best abilities in order to be accepted by society. However, John Keating inspires the students to find their own paths and to think for themselves. He wanted them to stand against the conformity and not care about the expectations of society, but rather follow their hearts. In spite of this you see that some of the themes can also be tradition, honor and conformity in the film. Welton defines tradition as honoring the previous generation by maintain they values and become something so you can get accepted in the society.
It is very important and is always needed to become successful in out society. Some people do not care about their personal ethics no matter where, what, when, and whom they are around. I try and use personal ethics where ever I am because I would want others to always respect me for my honesty and good values, not only in the workplace and in school. Alot of people were taught good morals and to set higher standards for themselves when they were young, but choose not to put them to good use. It is always important to know the difference between right wrong in any type of situation.
We watch our family around us and see the importance of being loyal to ourselves and our families. This begins how each of us perceives loyalty in our future relationships. We meet people in life and friendships are created between some of them. We will have a certain loyalty within these friendships. Based upon one’s upbringing, we believe that we will do anything to help and protect a true friendship from harm or misguidance.
Of course, being obnoxious is not the idea. The key is to become a master of communication with teachers and fellow students, all of whom are a part of the school community. Most importantly, those who are outside of the community. I do not want to make Abraham Clark High School sound as if it produces the perfect students, because it doesn't. But the school deserves a lot of credit for its efforts.
This constant change has made me aware of the value of friendship, while accepting the differences in others. I have found myself to be a loyal, trustworthy and dependable friend. I am learning that even though situations have changed, my feelings for my friends do not need to. I can still care from a distance, and creating new friendships is as important as nurturing the old ones. I am most proud of the relationship I am building with my immediate family.
Jim Keenan English 101 It Puts The Lotion In The Basket As most kids gradually start to read more and more as they mature, I was one of the few who didn't learn to enjoy reading until senior year of highschool. The teachings of Tom Alessandri were the sole cause of my newfound appreciation for literature. All it takes is the inspiration of one individual to turn someone onto reading and writing. Tom Alessandri was the last highschool English teacher I had, taking his Science Fiction & Horror Literature class. While many people would be discouraged by the title of the class alone, I was intrigued and immediately signed up.
My parents realized they would soon have to spell things out, as many parents do. As soon as I learned to spell, which wasn’t long after I learned to read, my parents had no hope. I had entered their secret world of language, and I wasn’t leaving anytime soon. This love affair with language and books continued well into elementary and middle school where I surpassed my Accelerated Reading points every six weeks. My parents and I even had a system: when we had finished dinner, we would go into my room and snuggle up with a book that either they or I had picked.
Principally, I believe honesty is important because it provides accurate information, reflects good character, and builds lasting, trusting relationships. The fact that honesty provides accurate information is so influential to every aspect of life. In reality the simple act of telling the truth is prominent because it affects all others around us somewhere down the line. Honesty reflects good character because when people know that someone is honest they feel that they can overall trust that person. It’s always comforting and reassuring when you can count on that person no matter the circumstances are.
Their concern for others coexists with aggressive and self-centered impulses, which occasionally interfere with effective interactions. Middle Childhood (6-10 Years) Middle childhood is a time of sustained attention to real-world tasks. Children start to form serious commitments to peers. Friendships are important, and children learn a lot from interactions with friends and resolutions of disputes. Children start comparing their performance to others, start to internalize many prohibitions they’ve heard repeatedly, and they start to fain a sense of what is expected of them, and most want to live up to those expectations.
