Since being in this course I had some challenges that I hope I have overcome some of them. I feel that I have a long way to go but I do not want to give up. I have enjoyed this class immensely and feel that I have grown a little. I really enjoyed the learning how to prepare PowerPoint presentations as I do believe that is my favorite. It has been a long time since I have been in school and I am not as confident as I want to be yet.
Capitan Mark Kelly Ever since I was a young girl I have always had great dreams and high expectations for myself. Anytime I was asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I would quickly reply” a lawyer” As the years went by I still had that goal in mind, but I began to realize that I was not exactly Ivy League material. Though I did work really hard in my classes, I was still at best average. During my junior year I took my SAT’s, and cried when I got my scores back. For many years I was scared to go to college because I thought I wasn’t college material.
Jenny Graves: The only thing that I would change really is doing more everyday with each child. I know there is only so much you can do, but I feel that there is always room for more. You can never learn enough in your life time. Cynthia Moore: What do you like most about your job? Jenny Graves: I love being able to help the younger generations learn and to guide them to be the very best they can be in life.
I thought that I would make friends right away and do well in school, but I did not. People were not only very judgmental but they would bully me for being different. At the age of nine or ten I could not understand why they hated me so much. There were many times where I would come home to my family crying my eyes out. It has taken me years to make good friends, but now that I have them I feel ambitious and more motivated.
Though, i know that with me being a full time employee and parent, college will be a little more complicated. I know that im on the road to sucess and that alone brings a great sence of sucess to my person, for which im very proud. I am very proud of being a role model to my children and family members. I have
_When I walked into SNAPS class I had mixed thoughts on how the semester would go, but as the school year is wrapping up, I am pleased with the new knowledge I have on autism. Throughout the year I had great pleasure working with Anders. I also enjoyed finding new ways to motivate him into working and make him smile. Not only did the book help explain problems with Anders and the solutions, but it also expanded my knowledge on autism. Although I am exited for summer, I am going to miss SNAPS class and the learning that came from it.
Joining this Fraternity has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I know through this I have many so many life-long brothers that will always be there for me at all times. It has been quite an adjustment, but it was not hard to do at all. When Percy says “Such a man is far more advanced in the dialectic than the sight-seer who is trying to get off the beaten track-getting up at dawn and approaching the canyon through the Mesquite” (Percy Par. 11) it is a great example of a new person like myself walking into a public University for the first time.
My ninth grade was pretty cool until the last week of school I let my mouth get the best of me and said some things that I really should’ve not said and because I did I earned the next semester at the alternative school. When school started back I was very sad because I had to go to the “bad” school with all the “bad” kids and I was very nervous. Once I got there it was pretty cool and I really enjoyed it because the classes were smaller and you got more one on one help. My grades went up and my mom decided that I should spend the rest of the year there, which really messed me up because they did not offer any elective classes only the basics . My eleventh grade year was also a disaster because of the struggle of passing my biology state test and I was really distracted and just wanted to go back to the alternative school but my mom and the principle would not send me back.
The effects of NCLB affected everyone, whether you were at the top of your class or toward the bottom. To those of us who experienced the affects if NCLB first hand, it seemed like the students who put in the least amount of effort got rewarded the same things that the students putting in hours of work got. I asked my good friend Casey Collins, who attends University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, if she felt that NCLB was affective she said, “In all seriousness it was passed to help those who were behind get back on their feet, but it never took into account why all of these students were doing poorly in the first place. It's not effective in the fact that these kids are now moving forward but still don’t have the knowledge to do so. It also holds back the kids who work hard to succeed.” Many of the people I asked agreed in some way with Casey.
Hannah Garrett Professor Lee English 110 17 September 2015 Teen Movies Summary In “High-School Confidential: Notes on Teen Movies” David Denby expresses his thoughts on high school and how kids overcome the treacherous four years that shape their future. Over many years, high school has transformed into a twisted, judgmental “hell hole” and does not have much potential of returning back to the peaceful and conservative place it used to be. Prior to today’s disrespectful student population, teachers and parents of the students were looked very highly upon and were associated with scholar and wisdom. However, today‘s environment is completely flipped; teachers are not taken seriously and are treated as if they are a joke and parents
