My most memorable school experience, revolves around the extracurricular of being a cheerleader. Being able to have the opportunity to thrive in school spirit and to be able to build lifelong friendships has allowed me to cherish my high school experience. Even though being a cheerleader
WHAT STRENGTHS WOULD I BRING TO THE YEARBOOK? I have many strengths that can be asset to the yearbook club. Most importantly being my sense of creativity. I have a keen eye for color scheme, layout, and photo perspective. Secondly which
Four years of my life drained away at this place called Troy High School. After this year I will be walking away from Troy, worn and torn from the hours of anticipation for grades to be posted, the next weekend to arrive, the answer to whether that special someone will say yes to the next dance, or the unbearable wait for that painstaking bell to ring. Troy is a place of education, a very good one at that, with its Blue Ribbon Award and national recognition, you’d think I would be walking away with knowledge that will serve me well for decades to come, but no. I could have learned the same things I learned at Troy anywhere, it is the insight I picked up that will take me far. “What insight?” you ask. Its priceless wisdom really, it’s a
Yearbook In the yearbook class, I think I did good enough to pass. My grade should be about a B or higher. The reason why I think this, is that I took the time to do my pages and I did a lot of work to finish my pages in time. I also would like a passing grade, because, I think I put a lot of thought in my pages, like the background and other things and creativity to my pages. I was assigned Staff, Middle School Baseball, Middle School Boys Soccer, and Middle School ASB. In the beginning of the year, I was working and giving ideas to my partners on the Staff page and the Middle school Boys soccer page. Towards the middle of the school year I had to work on my pages and they worked on the other pages for me. Julian did the staff page
The following content areas form the foundation of my yearbook course. They were crafted into a pre-post test as well as educational learning units: Yearbook Terminology, Photography, Writing Copy, Website Tool and Functions, Ethics Responsibility and Student Press Law, Editing and Revising, Marketing
In this aspect I was indeed correct, and we took many pictures. We also sorted the pictures and uploaded them to the computer. One of the hardest things I had to do in yearbook was try to match faces to names without a list. There weren't many cases where I had to do this, but when I did it was very difficult. When you are taking pictures at like the spelling bee or geography bee I would make sure to take way more pictures than what you think you need, cause it's better to have too many pictures than too little. We ended up not having many pictures for the spelling bee and it was a little complicated. Something I wish I had learnt earlier than what I did was that you could pick designs and layouts instead of trying to come up with one from nothing. When you choose a layout you have something to go off and it is a lot simpler then trying to come up with something from scratch. Also I didn't realize how to do format on the captions which was really useful to know when I figured it out. You could adjust the font and the blur or size. There were a lot of things that I could of guessed we would do, but I also learned a lot more than I thought I would. Being in yearbook showed me lots of editing tools and how to work together to get a good page. I got to come up with my own pages and work with my classmates to get the yearbook how we pictured it. My experience in yearbook was much more than I thought it to be, we learned more things than I anticipated. I learned many new things and worked with lots of new people. My time in yearbook made me more confident on giving my opinion and working on a computer. I got more familiar with faces and names, I also got more familiar with placing pictures where they look good on the page. I realized that you have to place pictures and captions where they look appealing on the page. You want it to be legible and eye catching, but not too much to where it’s a
We tutor underclassmen and represent the math department. I have personally helped organize the induction for next year’s members. I am also the drum major for the North Marion High School Marching Band. My job is to conduct and control the band. I try to welcome and teach freshman who have not marched or played an instrument before. I have been in the marching band since eighth grade because I stepped up to help support the sound. I also went to Governor’s Honors Academy over the summer. This was an amazing opportunity that truly expanded my knowledge and perspective on West Virginia. The three week academy made me realize West Virginia’s potential and true abilities. I was taught not to let the stereotypes put on our state dampen my dreams and
The highlight of my Junior year was being one of the Horizon High School Frontline section leader. I learned new things about how people work, what it is like to lead and what it is like to share power. In addition to learning, I was able to put my people and musical skills to work in order to be successful.
What drew me to applying for Yearbook is the incredible opportunity to delve into aspects of Northside, including students, staff, and events, that I may have otherwise failed to gain exposure of. Although my knowledge of Northside certainly expanded throughout freshman year, I feel that there are still many things that would be a pleasure to explore and learn about. Additionally, the thought of creating a work to be shared with the entire school is an exciting prospect. Moreover, I enjoy design, writing, and experimenting with aesthetics.
Psychology is an unavoidable aspect of life; we can observe it every day - from mental illness to the acquisition of language - everything we do, think, and feel is determined by our minds. What particularly interests me is the biological explanations behind human behaviour, and why certain neurological factors,
Throughout my time at Andalusia High School there are a variety of memories I can reflect on, and things I wish I would’ve done differently. The memories that made my time here very memorable were the ones spent with my friends, and taking interest in things that I never would’ve became fond of.
Students were allowed to express their creative freedom through their assigned yearbook pages, but the guidelines were clearly dictated by the teacher, with her having the final say-so. Normally this observer would claim that the finality of the teacher’s word would hinder the creativity of the students, but this teaching style is appropriate for this specific elective class. Creating a yearbook that is cohesive, engaging, and accurate (spelling, captions, grammar, etc.) is challenging with so many minds contributing to the process, so this writer greatly approved of the teacher setting clear parameters to work within. The teacher appeared to have a good rapport with her students, verging on too casual. However, one major complaint that this observer had with the cooperating teacher was her disparaging comments about the students in her following class period. This writer found this to be irresponsible considering that the comments may reach the teacher’s other class, consequently causing a blow to their self-esteem and leaving them
High School is About Learning, and Nothing Else Most of a high school is a blur at this point. I can barely remember anything from ninth grade and only bits and pieces from tenth grade. There are certain memories, however, that I can see clearly with perfect detail - even though they are pretty small moments in time. Sitting in Western Civilization when Mr. DeFusco asked me if I was “okay” with being in Advanced Placement United States History the following year. Jumping up and down in Mrs. Leister’s room surrounded by jittery sophomores because we were about to take the Advanced Placement United States History Exam that morning in May. Writing a snarky comment on a quiz on Iran’s government in Advanced Placement Comparative Government with Mr. Schwenk. There are other memories that are perfectly vivid, but these are the most significant. Why these memories in
Bell rings, my yearbook class starts. I proceed to sit down, pull out my Mac, headphones in, now I’ve teleported into my working world. Everything around me is blacked out now. All of my focus is directed toward the end goal. To produce a yearbook that could be printed before the end of the semester. Doing repetitive tasks aren’t just boring, but also time consuming. “There had to be a better way,” said the engineer within me. The so called better way was found. Using my programming skills I automated the page creating process and made it export it into a PDF file.
Memories are like a storybook that is embedded into our heads filled with the good, bad, funny, and unforgettable moments that has happened to us through our journey of life. Looking back at moments that has happened in my life I never would have thought that moment would become a memory that will stay with me forever. The day I did archery for the first time at East Elementary has made so many memories for me.
