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.
As I’m from Mexico I did my high school in Monterrey and they don’t give the importance to this aspects for college and for some international people like me is tough and the evidence is that this is my second time taking this course because they didn’t teach me how to become a better writer or reader and this paper is really helpful for me because not all students are prepared equally so for this semester I’ll read important and high cognitive books to progress on my English, not only talking or expressing but writing as well. There are many ways in which the high school students can improve over the four years and some mentioned by the Sullivan are Reading, Writing, Thinking, Listening, Grit and the Attitude Toward College. The author mentions reading as an important quality because college requires lots of reading comprehension since students needs to read too much in order to learn and is included in all of the courses. The author outlines other significant reading-related strengths students have towards college, i.e. “Students who are ready for college like to read”, “Students who are ready for college have read some good books as well as some important books while they were in high school”, “Students who
Being in middle school for 3 years has changed everybody. It made some strong and some stronger, some just lost it and switched schools. They couldn’t deal with the pressure middle school had to offer ,but it wasn’t the teachers, the tests or trying to find your classes, it was mostly just trying to “FIT IN”, and also finding out that who you are kinda affects what people think about you, but for some people they didn’t care about what people thought, they just focused on trying to find that one “special person” but to some peoples realization its to early to find love right now, but other people have different opinions and they disagree. Middle school for some people may have been fun at first but once they got used to it, it changed. People learn a lot during middle school like for my experience , I found out that best friends are the people that actually care about you and even the friends you’ve known your whole life, that doesn’t
But this injures students educationally as well. While the rest of the world references Vietnam in many of today’s situations or debates on whether Iraq is the next Vietnam and other issues, high school students are left out of the loop because their high school textbooks and teachers refuse to teach them what they should learn, what they ought to learn. High school students are hurt the most because of this. While textbook authors and editors are not likely to break away from the template soon, they should at least find a way around the system to provide pictures and information that would give students sufficient knowledge on the topic of Vietnam. That way students would be able to keep up with issues from which parallels to Vietnam are drawn or participate in such
School was hard for César because the teachers only spoke English and César did not understand English. César thought some teachers were mean because they would punish him when he spoke Spanish.

Sbeckner24@gmail.com Sara Beckner In Class Essay Writing 110 Appletree Christian Learning Center Initially, when I took this job, I thought that I would hate it. I was twenty two years old when I applied for the assistant teacher position and I didn't think that I would like it because I knew that I would have to work with the babies (1 ½-2 years) instead of the older children (3-4 years). Working with the babies requires a lot more tedious work and patience for example the teachers have to constantly change diapers and not all the babies are able to talk or communicate well. Appletree Christian Learning Center is not a typical daycare, it's very structured and the children learn a lot like they are
This used to make me so angry. I sometimes did not feel like going to school because of the comments and questions students would have for me. Each and every day of school used to go by with me explaining to my classmates what Muslims really were and how much my religion were against killing innocent people. Then, after a month or two, things cooled down and everyone started to realize that not all Muslims are terrorists and that they should not be racist to those, who are not responsible for what had
When I first learned how to read in English, it was a pain in the butt. My first language is Spanish so it was very difficult to start all over again with a new language. When I first got to this country I had to adapt pretty quickly to keep with my new classmates. I had no problems in any subject but English. Kids would make fun of me but I never gave up because in a situation like that, that’s the worst thing you could do because if you don’t keep trying you will never learn, everyone learns from their mistakes.
If I would invest the time needed to organize I would have received a better grade. English has never been my forte in high school; I failed one whole semester because I was infected with senioritis. My mentality was that I didn’t HAVE to do anything because graduation was just around the corner, but boy was I wrong. This set of mentality pushed me back in my senior year and it prohibited me from enjoying my last year as my friends were living it up at all the parties while I was home finishing up my online class as a result of my failure. Online classes required self determination and a lot time.
The Future of Students Equals Change in Everyone The American people make excuses over and over about why our children are struggling in school, but the true question we need to ask is: why aren’t we doing enough to make a change? A few years ago the elementary school that my children attend had implemented a dual language program. After four years, my children were fluent in Spanish. This program was doing so well, that ninety eight percent of the children in the program tested out gifted. Unfortunately somewhere down the line, the school board members at the district, and state level didn’t think the program was worth keeping.
