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.
I was so happy that I didn’t have to worry about the stress of this topic anymore. My parents were so proud that about how determined I was. Now I realize that it wasn’t until I completed the Geometry class in my junior year that I passed the regents in June of 2011. I believe this is because Geometry was the necessary class to take before Algebra II Trigonometry but the curriculum in my school district wasn’t set up that way, causing many students to fail. Many students who failed were “A Students” and never failed a test before this.
Week 7 - Self-Reflection Essay I started this Project 586 class with no experience in the project management field, but with the help of Professor Michael Hall throughout the entire class I learned about different phases of project life cycle.

Jamison Mullen Ms.Cramer Final reflective essay 5/24/12 It’s been a long hard year for all the students that took English 10. It’s good that people take English because it affects the way we talk, live, and function in day to day life. I can say personally English helped my writing tremendously.

Taylor Heskett Professor Raker English 101 January 16th 2013 Peers, Problems and a Presidency “Taylor you’d be great for this position!” I barely heard while I was counting down the seconds until my High school History class was over. “What did you say?” I proclaimed. My teacher, Mrs. Mckannan, elaborated her point by explaining that the election for Senior Class officers was approaching. I had always been a part of committees and clubs throughout High School but never before considered running for Senior Class office. Mrs. Mckannan said there was a major lack of interest this year and very few students were running.
I always wonder why I seem to leak learning things. The answer to that was known two people learn the same and it is up to you to process the information and get the help you need.

I got a job and made some decent money so I decided I didn’t care for school. Moving from job to job made me realize that I have to go back to school. I couldn’t go back in time but I can try it now at ITT Tech and now I am even more focused than ever. At least two goals I set in this class are just to show up and do the work. If I show up and do the work, there’s no reason why I can’t pass the class or even get an A for my grade.
I went thru school for several years and each summer I would go out and help my dad do construction work. I didn’t enjoy it because I wasn’t interested in it at all. It wasn’t until my sophomore year in high school that I got the opportunity to take a welding class down at our vocational school. I signed up for the class and I got accepted into it. Little did I know that this was going to start my career of on the right foot.
These courses offer more comprehensive and fast paced learning than normal. In eighth grade, your teachers either recommend you for honors classes or you are excluded from them for the next four years. I was excluded. Although I believed that I was able to perform in an honors course, my teacher did not. So I entered high school in all regular classes.
I just arrived at America, everything was new for me. My daily routine comprised of going to school, coming home, resting for a while, waking up, hanging out with friends, coming back home, sleeping, and then repeating the same thing the next day. I didn't care about my homework or even classwork for that matter. In the meantime, the first semester I studied at ELAC, I got 4.0 GPA.
