This is the year when I made all of my closest friends that I still have a relationship to this day. My homeroom, Mrs. Nelson, who was also my language arts teacher, was probably the most entertaining class. Ms. Thomas, the history teacher, was probably the worst teacher I have ever had. She made us just sit in class and listen to her talk everyday and would never let us talk. Ms. Bloom, my reading teacher was a mean old woman but we always found a way to have fun in her class.
Managing Failure in your Life In “Proficiency” essay by Shannon Nichols, the narrator explains how a failure in a test changed her motivation and enthusiasm about writing. She was always a great student, very smart, and confident about her ability to write and read, until she took this proficiency test, which is a test to decide whether or not students may receive a high school diploma. She could not believe it the first time; in fact, she knew writing was one of her strengths, so failing that part of the test was something highly unexpected. But, even harder to believe was the second time she did not pass the test. After that, she felt like a big failure; moreover, she quitted trying so hard and stopped taking English seriously, but her biggest worry was that she never knew why she didn’t pass that test.
My sister has an incredibly high IQ, but so did a hundred other teenagers from her graduating high school class. ASL is well ranked in education and teaches many future diplomats and royalty. With competition from these bright minds at its peak, my sister could not rely solely on her previous knowledge and great testing skills to beat them. Both of my parents are driven in their work and my sister latched on to that mindset at an early age, learning French from her au pair. My dad drove three hours round trip to work daily for three years so that we could attend ASL and my sister did not take that opportunity for granted.

Waverly’s restrained childhood years shaped her into the assertive person she later transformed into as an adult. These characteristics came from major points described in The Joy Luck Club written by Amy Tan. Waverly’s experiences in the limelight as a child chess prodigy; an insufficient relationship with her mother; and her developing rivalry with Jing-Mei all lead to her independent, competitive, stubborn, snobby, and forceful personality. Waverly isn’t entirely self-centered, however, as she proves to love her daughter, Shoshana, unconditionally. Winning chess tournaments as a child and eventually building a profitable career as a tax attorney, Waverly has always been a model of success.
When Waverly was a mere six years old her mother taught her the “art of invisible strength” which in the end allows you to visually see the end result or “Endgame” and that gives you the strength to see it become a reality. This proved especially true once she starts becoming interested in the game of chess. She is fascinated by the simplicity yet mystique of the game. Eventually she becomes a protégé of Lau Po, an old man in the park who has been playing the game for decades. Waverly’s strength in the game increases rapidly and by her ninth birthday she is already a national junior chess champion.
Mr. Keating also plays a large role in Todds new outlook on his academic life as well as who he wants to be. I can relate to this character because I have a friend whose younger sister was rather rebellious when she got to high school. My friend is a very intelligent girl who’s been on honour roll throughout school, along with being on many sports teams and a member of student council. Her parents often compared her younger sister to her and it wasn’t uncommon to hear them say “why can’t you be more like your’ sister?” When her younger sister’s grades were at a failing level her parents decided to send her to a private school about 3 hours away where she would live with her aunt. She’d been attending the school for 8 months and things had seemed to be improving.
Kathleen went to school to become a nurse practitioner when Becka turned one, and Brent took care of her during the day while Kathleen went to school. He worked as a custodian in the evenings.

However, the schools and Becka’s family have finally recognized the value of her placement, and have seen significant growth in Becka’s social and academic outcomes. Becka has one younger brother, Alex, who is in the first grade, and who is progressing well through the general curriculum.
“A Memoir and Impact of one of my Teacher in my life”: Teachers are a very important part of every student’s life. Although some teachers have no impact on students, there are those who leave a mark in a student life. Teachers not only teach their students about academics but also teach them about life. Teachers are sometimes one of the most influential people in a student’s life. However, those students who have close, positive and supportive relationships with their teachers will attain higher levels of achievement than those students with more conflicted relationships.
