It seems like it was just yesterday when I decided on what I wanted to do or to be in my life.Time has gone by but I still have the same idea and that is being a music teacher. When I was younger everything around me, including the people, influenced me to want to teach music . As a teenager I started working every summer at a music camp in New Orleans. My job was to teach children ages six to thirteen how to read music and also how to play the instruments. My first year here was difficult but by my second year I became someone my peers and younger kids than me looked up to.
After his death, he was not very well known throughout the world at the time. Before I continue with Bach’s music works, I would like to continue with the other great composer who was a part and contribute for the development of the Baroque music style- George Frederic Handel. He was born in 1685 in Halle, Germany. His parents did not want him to be a composer, but because his musical talent was so developed in his early years, his parents consented for
English 101 October 29, 2008 When I was in high school my friends would make jokes about the Marching Band, my friends would say that it was so much easier than other activities. For example; chess, quiz bowl, basketball and even football. They never played an instrument, nor marched while playing one. They never took the time out of their day to see how hard playing an instrument and marching in rhythm and in sync with other band members, really are. My mom had just dropped me and my sister Kristina of at the North Branch High School by the band parking lot.
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.
I started early in the week on working on the courses. I knew I would not succeed doing so, but I fill better trying. I commonly get in arguments with my sister, but they ended fairly quickly. I also did not run into any obstacles so therefore my tranquility was not tested too much. It is really hard for me to contribute to my virtues because of the injury I got from football.
I started out in ballet then the next 2 years did ballet and tap, in 4th and 5th grade I did jazz and tap and my last year I did hip hop. Dancing was fun but I got bored really easily with it. It was more of way to spend time with my friends because we all did it. I never wanted to be competitive with it and that's why I never went outside of school with it. Ballet wasn't the only thing I did in elementary school.
Chelsea Malone Dr. Watkins Daniel Bruno's Entitlement Education essay is quite true. There's a difference between passing your class while actually understanding, and passing without truly understanding. You see it all the time. I often find myself jealous of those who can study right before a test and pass, and yet I can't. How do they do it?
I tried to keep focus but my solitude was starting to become unbearable. Yes there were many students around but they all seemed to have their own network since they knew their classmates from their previous schools while all of my friends were in regular ed classes. I started to rebel and slacked off so much that teachers began to wonder why i was in a advanced class since they thought i couldn't hack their work load when in reality all i wanted to do was be placed in regular ed just to be with my friends. Odd and dumb reason, i know but I didn't know that at the time. Eventually I was moved from classes due to my insubordination and i was content at the time.
It felt like my peers were better than me because it seemed like they put a lot of thought and input into their school works while I felt like I turned in something worthless. This attitude led to dropping out of my honors classes and getting into regular classes my junior
The things that made me start in those positions were listening to my coaches and what they had to offer and help me with. I just basically did what the coaches told me to do while the other players didn’t really do what the coaches told them to do and I beat them out of the position. The listening skills always don’t work on the baseball diamond. Listening skills have to be the best in school though because when you’re in school and you listen you learn stuff. Even though I really don’t listen that much I still learn some important stuff in school.
