I am observing at Eastridge High School in the East Irondequoit Central School District. At Eastridge, I am working with Mr. Jeff Hoffman, a Nazareth graduate for his undergraduate and graduate degrees, who oversees the ninth through twelfth grade band program at Eastridge.
My academic goal is to earn my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Argosy University within 36 months and graduate with at least a 3.75 GPA by successfully completing two courses every session, effective September 8, 2016. This long term goal will be achieved by accomplishing various short term objectives such as achieving positive attendance/participation in each course while earning at least 90% on all my assignments. My motivation to reach this goal is provided by both intrinsic and extrinsic sources. I pride myself on setting an example for my children to follow. I put an emphasis on never losing interest in developing new skills and remaining relevant. Additionally, I look at earning my degree as a way to boost my confidence, which has been lacking since I left the workforce to provide full time care for my children. This inward stress I place upon myself is a positive force and my intrinsic motivation. My extrinsic motivation is provided by the prospect of career growth and increased compensation. In the military, once an enlisted member attains the rank of Chief (E-7), each consecutive advancement is more difficult. Being the recipient of an academic degree gives me a competitive edge for promoting through the

On Thursday, June 16th all 4th grade classes from Hanscom Middle School got their Every Kid in the Park passes, learned about the Centennial and met park rangers too boot. A neighbor of Minute Man National Historical Park, Hanscom Middle School is located on the adjacent Hanscom Air Force Base, located in the towns of Bedford, Lincoln and Lexington, Massachusetts. 50 students were awarded their passes as well as peppering rangers with questions about the National Park Service.
I think that attending Towson High School and being a part of its Law & Public Policy program has definitely changed my perspective and opinions. Towson High School, a predominantly white school, was very different for me because I'm not a localite and I'd only attended predominantly black elementary and middle schools. While I have been able to recognize prejudice at Towson, as someone who is politically liberal in a highly diverse magnet, I have managed to work with, get along with, and befriend a magnitude of students and contributed to conversations that expand everyone's worldview.
In 1993, the Supreme Court decided on the case of Zobrest v. Catalina Foothills School District. Based on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), this case was pressed in Arizona by deaf James Zobrest and his parents who wanted a sign language interpreter, publically funded from the respondent, the Catalina Foothills School District (CFSD), to assist James while he was currently attending Salpointe Catholic High School. The arguments of this case were based on the First Amendment rights in the Constitution; the Zobrests claiming that the case was infringing on their rights from the Free Exercise Clause and the CFSD claiming that the case was unconstitutional based on the Establishment Clause (Zobrest v. Catalina Foothills School
We, the students of Matoaca Middle School, demand the return of a less cruel grade system, as the current one is simply inadequate. That system has negatively affected or will affect every student at the Matoaca Middle School, and will continue this downward spiral for the coming years. Furthermore, your actions caught us unprepared for the simple hostility displayed with your actions. The signatories pledge their dedication to the cause. We hope that you consider to agree to the outlined request, so that this is resolved quickly. The current system should be resigned to the dustbins of the school’s history, and we can move forward for the future students.
Rancho Minerva Middle School (RMMS) is located in the rural area within the Vista Unified School District (VUSD). A major issue occurring at RMMS is corresponding to sixth to eighth grade male students being recipients of ineffective punishments as a result of their disruptive behavior. Students’ disruptive behavior refers to those who engage in altercations, disrupt teachers during instruction time, and become involved in substance use. The ramifications for students with disruptive behaviors are followed by disciplinary approaches such as expulsions, suspensions, Saturday school, and after school detention. Such approach has resulted in students achieving lower academics which can also increase the chances of engaging in risky behavior outside the school. According to RMMS School Accountability Report Card (SARC), in the 2014-2015 school year, RMMS reported 10.4% suspensions which demonstrated to be higher than the previous years. Additional factors that have had an effect on suspension rates are the limited in house services provided to this particular population at RMMS. Though RMMS does not have an appointed mental health provider or personnel to assist with mental health support on site, students are granted the opportunity to be referred to outside providers/therapist for counseling services. However, this has been a major limitation for our
My educational goals for high school would be to get good grades mostly, and the reason that is one of my main goals is because with grades your acceptance rate is higher to get into a college. With a higher acceptance rate, you get more options of colleges to choose from you aren’t limited to a certain college. For my college goals, they are to get a master's in nursing. Why I want my masters in nursing is because a master gets a higher chance in being hired, because they would rather choose someone with a higher degree in that area of work. Also with a masters you have more knowledge and that is always a better thing when applying to a job.
Southwest Montessori center is a new Montessori that recently started a year ago. There is a small student to teacher ratio. Although the school is small, it has some high expectations from their students. I was amazed at their first graders academics skills. I am grateful to have an opportunity to observe such intelligent students.
One of the broad goals of education is to assist students in acquiring knowledge that they will need in order to succeed. It is essential for this goal to be met regardless of whether the student will be continuing on to college or entering the workforce. In order to achieve this goal, it will be
