I plan to major in middle level education after high-school graduation, which encompasses fifth through the eighth grade. I love working with younger children and helping them while teaching. From personal experience from being a student, I love seeing the proverbial “light bulb” go off when something difficult is finally understood. I understand how much of importance education serves in our community and the world. Regardless of the salary I would potentially receive, I want to have a role of impacting on future generations and be an agent of change. I wish to make a positive difference in the lives of others which is very rewarding and important to me. I myself, enjoy working with people, while I enjoy learning on my own as well, which are

I am currently a Kindergarten teacher at Our Lady of Trust Academy. Although it is a wonderful private institution, my goal is to teach at a public school. I have chosen this career path because I am passionate about working with children, while they are developing their foundational skills.

My little cousin, Ella Jane, is in the stages of transitioning into middle school. A “skill” that I have recently mastered. A process that no one knew could be so challenging. That’s why I want to help correctly guide her down the path of priorities, extracurriculars, and friendships.
A pretest-posttest control group design was used to measure the effect of practical life materials on public school kindergartner children's fine motor skill development over a 6-month period.
During the summer between my sophomore and junior years, I was one of four students selected to represent my school and council at the National Josten’s Renaissance conference in Orlando Florida. My fellow students and I learned a great deal about other schools around the country and we wanted to take some ideas back to our school to implement them. One of our key ideas focused on recognizing various students at our high school that constantly achieve remarkable feats, but largely go unnoticed by the school as a whole. Being vice president of my class, I took charge of this initiative and designed a solution to the problem. I advocated that we replace our typical, mundane, class meetings with class rallies, a pep rally type atmosphere for more
As a student, people always tend to ask me what I am going to school for, and when my answer is education their immediate reaction is, “Are you sure you want to do that?” After reassuring them that it’s definitely what I want to do they continue to ask me what grade I would like to teach. When I tell them middle grades they really start questioning my decision, but my question to them is why not? I love the students’ personalities at this age and I love how vulnerable but at the same time independent they can be.
First of all, middle school students part-time job meeting and learning conflict, thus affecting learning. If we go to work after school and vacation, there will be no time to attend to study, so students will learn less time.

This is for the middle school students, it is to pick up the sesame and lost the watermelon!
Schools boards are important to the four pillars of democracy. By letting a student under the age of 16 go to school no matter their gender, religion, or culture, the school board practices: justice, equity, and freedom. Justice is shown when the school board shows that it respects any gender, culture or religion. School boards do not ban anyone that has a “different” gender, religion or culture. Everyone is welcomed and wanted. The school board makes policies to make sure that educational standards are met by teachers and they reflect the community’s values. They also make justice by creating rules that the teachers, students, and administration have to follow. The school board allows policy to be debated and decisions can be appealed. They
My elementary years can be described in one word, melodramatic. I went to a small private school names Victory in the Perryton Texas. My class had a around 15 kids in it and it only got smaller with each year. In preschool and kindergarten, my mom decided to “homeschool” me. In other words i didn't really learn anything, i just had more time to be a kid. I loved and when it came time to starting first grade i was actually very excited to be in school. Unfortunately i was quite a bit behind. I didn't know how to read, spell anything, and i was so much slower than the rest of my class when it came to completing my assignments. The whole i was one of the last kids in the class to complete all of the assignments. Then one day my principal, who was good friends
Jack struggled when he was in elementary school - he found it difficult to read, spell, and write. While the other children excelled during Mrs. Leroy’s 3rd grade reading time, Jack often became frustrated and upset because the letters and symbols did not make sense. One day, Jack’s older sister took him to the public library with her to check out a book. The librarian sensed Jack’s trouble when she saw him with a book, sounding out the letters with difficulty. She sat with Jack for three hours and taught him how to read; within weeks, Jack was a proficient reader and headed to the library twice a week to check out books recommended to him. The public library system affects the public education system in the United States by providing the students with achievement, lifelong learning opportunities, and an education.
Prior to a formal education process consisting of school buildings children’s education occurred through their interactions with their family. Fathers instructed sons. Mothers instructed daughters. This experience was carried out primarily by association and imitation. Children learned from life experience gained from living in groups in addition to participating in daily activities. In ancient times children were considered miniature adults after gaining control over bodily functions, the ability to independently groom and feed their selves. Even children under the age of five worked to support the household. As civilization expanded, training through apprenticeship evolved. Historical records over 4000 years ago, documented children
Ever since I was a little girl, I knew that in my future I wanted to become a teacher. I always looked up to my teachers, especially the ones I had in elementary school. I even played 'school' with my friends and pretended I had my own classroom. I loved being in charge. During a summer, I was given the opportunity to work as an Energy Express mentor and work with a group of eight children. This was one of the most wonderful experiences I have ever been through. I was a mentor to help guide the children, and by the end of the summer I felt as if I had really accomplished something. I am planning to pursue a career in elementary education. I love children, and just knowing that as a
