A high school teacher that has impacted my life is my 9th grade Geometry teacher, Mrs. Scully. Mrs. Scully has impacted my life from the very beginning. She has always been very caring and fun to be around. She is probably one of the most unique people in my life. She has always wanted me to do my best, and worked hard for me to understand the course. I was very troubled in mathematics, but the first time I received an 80 on a test in her class was the happiest moment for me. She is dedicated and she cares about you. She wants you to do good. I only had her for that year, but I still continue to see her. Sophomore and Junior year I would also use my tutoring time to be with her. I am now a senior class officer and she is our leader. She puts together senior activities and the officers help her. She influences me to be the very best person I can be. I see how she has these stylish cars and is overall happy with her life and committed to what she does. It’s inspiring and I can only wish to become as happy and successful as she is. She is a wonderful
In 6th grade Mr. Strupp was always kind and a bit sarcastic, but in a friendly way. Mr. Fosse was funny and taught me math and science. Laura taught me how to play and do certain sports. In 7th grade Mr. Leister teaches me history, and I get to hear his interesting stories all the time. Ms. Duncan lays the hammer down, and strictly grades, which always encourages me to do my best. Ryan teaches me science (with a little help from Tim and Moby). Lastly Mimi, is a fun, but clumsy math teacher. All of them have been superb, and helped me through my two long years of Middle School.
For example, when I was a freshmen in Clear Lake High School. My favorite subject is math because I’m good at it and also math is interesting for me. My Algebra 1 teacher was Ms. Brodus. Her class rules was so strict. She always told students to put their cellphones away but, she was so enjoyable, delighted and pleasant talk to. Also, she always gave her plenty of time to every students. She was so organized about her every assignment. Whenever a student has trouble in any problem she helps them. She always teach each problems step by step so, the students can better understand. She always shows students two ways how
In my 12 years of being in school, I have had a lot of different experiences with many different teachers. Some good and some, unfortunately, bad. I have had many favorites and some teachers that I couldn't wait until I dint have their class again. One teacher that I am so Grateful to have had is my 7th grade geography teacher Mrs. Gribble. Mrs. Gribble inspired me to always go after what I wanted, do my best at all times, and live my life according to me.
I have always been good in math, but when I would struggle with something Mrs. Crafton was always right there to try and help explain it in as many different ways as possible until it clicked in my brain. The last teacher I have to thank for all my success and valuable skills is Kimi Romey, she has helped me basically all of my High School career, always putting in extra time to help me with whatever I needed. She also helps instill confidence in myself when I doubted my skills. It did not matter what I need help with she was there to help me. She pushes me to do better, work harder, and not to stay in my comfort zone, but really push myself to my full potential.
Middle school and high school were very different for me. Both schools lack diversity and consisted of people just like me, but in middle school everyone’s identity were practically the same. I attended Catholic school until high school and had all white classes until then too. Throughout middle school I was a rather mischievous student who did not place academics too highly on my list of priorities, so I was often making the teacher’s job much harder than it needed to be. If not for how involved my family and I were with the church and the school my in class experience would not have been as pleasant. The only way that we ever learned about our own identity was through religion classes and through church so the fact that the entire school probably had less than five students of ethnicity in a school with grade 3-8 in it was never addressed. In middle school almost everyone was middle class or at least were not struggling like some of the families in more urban areas. If a family did begin to struggle enough financially they simply went to another school because the cost of Catholic school was no longer a luxury that they could afford. So the school not only consisted of people with the same race but also eliminated people that were not from the same economic background.
After cheerleading ended Mrs. Vera became my english teacher. This was my junior year so it was the most critical year for me to do well in school. English was my favorite subject so I was already good at learning the material but Mrs.Vera made English fun for the class because sometimes the material could be a little boring. She made a way to make learning things very enjoyable for the class. Not only would she teach us about the material we needed to know but she also taught as many different life lessons.
Her name was Mrs. Treneff and her determination and passion for teaching helped shape me into the student I am today. Her help paired with hard work allowed me to transition a year ahead in Math; something I never thought possible at that age. She made learning math exciting for me. When she taught me the basic principles of algebra, I was taken back to the excitement I would feel when I answered a history fact.
The junior high school and middle school is basically the same thing. Today we still have junior high schools but the mostly named that way because of the historically context. Looking at my notes taken from this year, middle schools span from 6 th to 8 th grade, the schedule is flexible and block depending on the class. Teachers have interdisciplinary teams and they work together as a grade level instead of working on common classes they teach. Lastly in the middle school, everyone is a team and everyone is working together. I picture it as one team, one heartbeat. Everyone is working together make the school alive figuratively speaking.
My 8th 9th grade Science/oceanography Teacher Mr. Raven R.I.P. really engaged with those he taught and was one of the most brilliant people I have met, one day in the future I could teach classes Like him
My favorite teacher, Mrs. Messina, was awesome in many ways. She was kind and was very considerate.She did not give me lots of homework. She still found a way to fully teach us. I also thought she was nice and considerate because she sometimes let us have naps and food.
My teacher for English my sophomore year was Mrs. Hales, she was amazing. Her class was what sparked my love for writing. Every day she would have writing prompts to do the first fifteen minutes of class. Just going into that everyday knowing that you could go in and just write about whatever you wanted was great. And another thing she did was she would always have music playing, but it was Enya. Which is smooth melodies and the words she sings are peaceful and beautiful. So that set me up to put me in the mood to write, so to this day I listen to Enya if I am stuck while writing. Her class just encouraged my passion for writing that I still have today.
In the sixth grade, I had Mrs. Adams; she was so much fun and amusing. She was a really good teacher and we did many activities to help us learn. Then I had Mrs. Teresco. She was the funniest teacher I ever had at S.M.I. She joked around and made everything she taught fun. I had Mr. Jensen for all of middle school. With Mr. Jensen, my class always had deep and interesting conversations about random topics. Finally I had Miss Baker as my teacher and we played a vocab game. It was a ball with words on it and when it was thrown to someone they had say the definition of the word their thumb landed on. My class loved playing that game because they liked to see what words people would get out on. For two years she had to put up with all the chaos my class made. In fact, all my teachers had to put up with the upheaval my class created in their
The teacher that stands out most in my head is my eleventh grade English teacher. She had a liberal arts background, and enjoyed the classic American writers; Hemingway, Steinbeck, what have you. She was in the class of teachers who was more impressed by actions and honesty
