Stories like that excite me, because for those who know me, know that the number one thing in which I am passionate about and excel, is working with little children. Becoming a pediatric nurse is my passion and something that I can see myself doing for the next 30 years. I would love to be able to go to college and come out debt free, but the fact that my family makes less than thirty thousand dollars a year, makes that likelihood very slim, if not impossible. This is why I am asking for your help with this scholarship. Providing me with this scholarship money will not only help me get through my schooling now, but it will also give the world, one more nurse who can be an angel to a sick child, like my cousin Vincent.
With school starting later, the bus schedule can make a tremendous change. Also, with school getting out at two in the afternoon, parents have to still attend their jobs. Another problem is how kids always complain that they do not have enough time to eat breakfast in the morning. With school starting later in the morning, they would have a much need amount of time to grab something to eat before heading out the door. It is extremely important for you to have something in your stomach
In my house, internet is a necessity because of online classes, but having a house phone isn’t necessary so we could cut that out. I made my own laundry detergent and have saved over $25 so far. We won’t be able to go out to eat, cutting down to basic satellite, not going many places or doing a whole lot that costs money. The job market is also terrible right now, and it doesn’t help that I have been a stay at home mom for thirteen years. You can’t be hired without experience, but you can’t get experience if you don’t get hired.
The mainstreaming of the cell phone has made it possible to be in contact with the family at all times. Whether Dad needs to let the family know that he is running late due to heavy traffic, or Mom forgot to jot down the grocery list before leaving for the supermarket, the solution is just a phone call away. Breaking down on the side of the road is less distressful when help can be contacted quickly thanks to the cell phone in the car. The smart phone lets the consumer compare prices on the internet while at the store to ensure they are getting the best deal before they make that high dollar purchase. At first glance it seems it would be equally as beneficial for adolescents to have a cell phone to help parents stay in contact and keep track of them, but with a closer look at the negative effects that a cell phone can cause to a teen’s health, behavior, and education, it becomes clear that the possible detriments far outweigh any conveniences that a cell phone may offer.
Extended School Day Persuasive Essay An extended school day may night be the best idea for students in today’s society. Most students do not need to spend an extra two hours of school getting help on their homework. The majority of students would rather finish their work at their own pace and would not be able to sit through a longer school day. We also must keep in mind that students today have many responsibilities that they must manage outside of school; these responsibilities range from after school jobs to even having to babysit their younger siblings. First of all, many students have after school jobs that they have to maintain.
"Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. "- H. Jackson Brown (Crawford, 2007). I also know that I will not be able to pick up extra hours at work because I will not have much free time in my schedule. This also means that financially, I will have to use my money wisely and not spend money on unnecessary
Another reason why is people who leave home will not be able to work full time so will not be able to get somewhere to live or be able to buy food and clothes. A lot of people will want to leave school and start earning money because they have enough GCSE’s to get a good job. Also will schools be able to discipline 17/18 year olds who can drive and get married etc, for example in class a teacher would feel a tad silly and weird telling a 18 year old to get outside and think twice before chewing
Being able to attend college online, communicating with my long distance relatives and taking care of all my finances online are just a few ways technology has simplified my life. Technology has definitely changed the way students learn, how teachers teach and whether or not either one has to step foot into a classroom. In my case, getting into a classroom became almost impossible. My boss commutes back and forth from New York City every day. Most days she would come home on time, but it always seemed that, on days, she knew I had to get to class; she would either miss her train or take a later train home.
Courses like home economics, entrepreneurship ,and accounting should be mandatory. Not everyone has a mom that will teach them how to cook or do laundry or a dad that can teach them how to do taxes or fix a flat tire, so these life skills should be available to us in school. The curricular system that's currently being used is outdated, just like the textbooks we "learn" from. Decades ago school was a place people wanted to go, they yearned for knowledge. The curriculum that was being taught matched the jobs that that era needed.
We sat down and worked out a solution we ordered a new computer, we only hope this helps us get more college work done and in a timely manner leaving us with less stress. Loosing days at work to go to school has put a huge struggle on me even though I know school is important. But having less money come in is a huge stressor that I have not found a way to deal with except telling myself that after I get an education I will get a better job. After sitting down and thinking very hard about this I have developed my action plan. One big thing that seems to help people deal with stress is going to the gym.
