If I could go back to freshman year to change some stuff I would. First, I would go back and tell myself to not try so hard on my appearance, but still try every once in awhile to look decent. I look at some of my clothes now from 3 years ago and I want to cry at how bad I started high school. Usually I just wear something comfortable now. Second, I would tell myself to lay off the make up. I always had top and bottom eyeliner on and with my black hair, I almost looked emo. That change needed to happen earlier. Third, I would tell myself to get more involved, because now all I do is work when I should be playing basketball or joining a club. The last thing that I would tell myself would be to not date the first guy who
Since freshman year, the Junior Reserves Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program has been an invisible hand of guidance that strived to bring out the best in me. This longstanding program has an impact on me in ways so innovative, it is impossible to find another program filled with diverse exhibitions of life lessons, discipline, and teamwork. JROTC has given me a lifelong readiness to combat the harsh realities of the real world that exist, which in return has helped me better myself and my community in contributions to being a citizen in the United States of America.
KIPP was founded by Michael Feinburg and David Levin, with only the two of them creativity allowed for an exceptional learning environment. However as KIPP has grown so has the bureaucracy and the management. At KIPP Houston each subject in each grade is taught by one teacher. Each teacher reports to a grade-level chair and a department chair (who is responsible for aligning the curriculum for all grade levels). The next level of management is decided by the individual principals at each school, some schools have have both a Dean of Instruction and a Dean of Students while other schools have combined the duties of these two positions into a single assistant principal position. The top management position at the school is the principal whose unique vision was used to create the school. The principal reports to one of the four Heads of Schools located at Houston’s regional office. The Heads of Schools then report to Superintendent Sehba Ali. As KIPP Houston has grown it has lost some of the creativity which made for a uniquely exceptional learning environment. The bureaucracy associated with the growth has led KIPP to becoming more regionally aligned losing some of the uniqueness embraced by the school
That school was a weird school different from most regular middle school’s. I seemed to fit in real quickly though because that school made me who I am now. I went there from 6th to 8th grade, and there was some good times in the Charter School days. The thing I liked the most about that school is the dance class/singing class we has the best teacher his name was Mr. Blackburn he was both funny and serious, and made that class really fun. I learned how sew at the Charter School which was beneficial if I needed to sew something. There was a class called games class it was PE basically but we called it Games class. We played games like bunker ball which is the teacher is in a bunker with a certain amount and the students with one life. When I graduated at the Charter School we went to place in Carmel where the graduation had happened in. Everybody said there speeches, and when it was time for me to say my graduation speech all I said was I graduated to keep it short and sweet. While all of the others said some important memories they had at the Charter School. When they showed pictures of the past them I was there for a little bit then left to go eat at a chinese
My high school experience was overall a mixture of being scared and growing to become who I am today. When I was in my first years of high school, it was just high school nothing more. I had seen teachers as teachers and friends as friends. I just
Throughout my adolescence, I have attended five different schools. They each had their pros and cons, but ultimately, I left each one except for Christian Brothers High School. For Middle School, I attended Lausanne; however, it became far too expensive. After Lausanne, I went to Germantown High School at the beginning of my Freshman year. This turned out to be one of my worst mistakes which, in turn, became one of my greatest failures.
All businesses have a number of stakeholders each with individual interests in what the business does, the owners (In co-ops case, the members) will want good financial gains from their investments. Businesses such as co-op should be managed with the interests of all stakeholders in mind.
I attended South Lafourche High School in Lafourche Parish which is in Louisiana. Some positive points about south Lafourche is that it had great teachers. The school also had many AP and many Dual Enrollment classes. The school offered many extra-curricular activities such as band, JROTC, family and consumer science, and many more. There were approximately 800 students who went to my school.
For elementary school to middle school I attended Federico Degetau a public school about twenty minutes from the area I was living at. For ninth and tenth grade I attended the Academia Adventist del Norte, which was a Christian academy. I have great memories from that wonderful academy. One of which I had my first leadership position of being the president of my gradating class (9th grade). Walking into the classroom of that academy I remember as if it were today, feeling a sense
The high school experience is something that will forever dominate the psyche of most American adults. It was an unforgettable time of fun, rebel-rousing, summer loves and parties. It was a time of warm summer days at the pool and chilly autumn nights, watching the football team and wondering were the party was going to be that night. School dances and hotel parties. Seems like all I can remember are the good times. High School is a very emotional time for many teens and everything matters. The insidious problems that I had to face are but a smudge on my memory, things like too much homework, zits, mean people, gossip, and algebra. The social atmosphere that permeated every aspect of high school could
Throughout my career in the social sector I worked with a variety of for-profit companies; over the last few years I’ve noticed interesting trends. Corporations are changing how they structure and evaluate philanthropic partnerships and fewer and fewer organizations are opting to donate through traditional methods. Social entrepreneurs are even integrating philanthropy into their business models. Just consider, big names such as Toms and Seventh Generation and newer start ups like Bombas (a sock company that donates socks one-for-one for every pair they sell). One-time event sponsorship and foundation giving seems to be losing ground to newer, innovative community investment strategies. These shifts have encouraged non-profits, including
High school was an easy transaction. I felt like I had the education and maturity level of a young adult. I knew I could handle all of the work and stress that was going to be dealt out in my classes. I noticed that high school was a lot like middle school and that I could handle the schedule. I did not really have any close personal relationships with any of my teachers like I had had in the past at my other schools. I only really liked two of my teachers out of the four years I was at school. Both of them were my math teachers for my junior and senior year. The last two years of math I learned so much that now I enjoy doing math because I actually understand it. The only other teacher that made an impression on me was my junior year English teacher. She was the only English teacher I had that actually taught me how to write and read great books. She took the time out to work with me individually. She gave me the tools I needed to write papers. High
High school was when I developed a curiosity for writing. I had known from my previous experiences in middle school that writing in a classroom setting was exhausting and boring. Adding extra words to try to fill the last half page of a length requirement became dreadful back in sixth grade. I felt my writing was not interesting, but the
