Along with most people throughout life, we all have mottos by which we live by. Some may be about life lessons, or even love.

The autobiography, Hungry, is an inspiring and uplifting memoir with a universal message about body image, beauty, and self-confidence. This story is more than just an autobiography.
Its purpose was to expose the need for equal rights and reinforcement of Title IX. Luckily, it was successful. The next day, the girls were on the cover page of The New York Times. Their coach, Nat Case, had been completely clueless in regards to the girls’ protest. Yet very embarrassed, Case was still very proud of his team for confidently taking a stand and getting their point across.
I was made fun of daily and got beat up multiple times, mostly by Dick. If it was not Dick bothering me, it was his friends. I would make up excuses to my mom so I would not have to go to school and have to deal with the constant abuse, but even that did not help. Dick would take pictures of me when his friends would give me wedgies and post them on Facebook. I never caught a break.
Emily McLoughlin Journal Entry #1 Today in Education 300 I met three new girls that I probably would have never met if I did not take this class. We introduced ourselves to each other and immediately started some small talk. Next we made nametags and filled in a seating chart. Looking around the classroom I immediately became excited for what the semester has in store for me. Little did I know that the next activity would allow us to get to know each other even more.
I was afraid to approach my teacher that morning because of her mood that I decided to remain uncomfortable and suffer in silence. Miss Y turned to the class and said there is to be no talking for the rest of the day and anyone who talks will be punished. Being seated at the edge of the seat I quietly whispered to the other student next to me to move around a little so that I can get space to write properly as half of my book was off the desk. Miss Y turned around and asked me why I was I was talking when she said no one was to speak. I tried to explain to her the situation and she shouted at me to shut up.
Not knowing this, we are glad we have a wine connoisseur only two offices over when we are in charge of the menu for our annual party. Cultural diversity is meaningful. Having that refugee working in your office as an understudy is good for her as well as for you. You see her struggling to learn and it brings out the best in you. You find ways of helping her and when she successfully passes her tests and is hired, you are delighted.
Following the game would result in the celebration party that ended in a complete massacre that no one from Crandon will ever forget. The week was a success as our town was decked in toilet paper, halls filed with decorations and emotions at an all time high. The pep-rally was a blast and everyone had fun. Mr. Caskey had the loudspeaker and everyone knew he meant business. He pumped up the classes and said the results.
KARA GARNER 12:30 0800 Graduating from Highschool One of my most special experiences is the time I graduated from high school. These special moments make me happy when I remember them. Receiving my diploma, changed my attitude, gave me confidence and allowed me to set realistic goals for myself. Ever since I can remember, I have gotten anything I ever wanted. Many people called me a spolied brat.
So, as I meet and greet every student by name each morning they are entering the Mrs. Freeman’s Happy Zone. This makes them feel special and lets them know I am happy they are there for the day. Students know from the very beginning of the year that only positive actions and learning occur in my classroom. There are numerous positive rewards offered in my classroom to encourage active learning. For example, I use a money system where I reward students for correct answers or participation.
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.
