something you get in school, but in reality education comes from different places and people not just school and teachers. For example, way before I started school I was already being educated by my parents, they taught me how to eat, behave, use the bathroom, talk, and a lot of other things that help out in life. I started my educational career in John F. Kennedy Elementary. I don’t really remember my years there because I only went there for Kindergarten and 1st grade. After that, I went to Sepulveda
I am proud of where I stand today. Like in others life they go through hardships, heartaches, embarrassments, exciting moments, and good times, etc. As I was growing up I say that my family was almost to the mid class but not quite there. I grew up with one brother, who is older than me, my mother, and I could say my step father was there but wasn’t really there. From when I was younger, my biological father had a substance abuse so my mother separate from that relationship with him. I
been told, “high school is what you make of it.” High school is in fact what you make of it, but it is also the time of great change in everybody. Entering grade nine you still feel like a kid, your post-secondary and career choices are far from top priority. However, by grade twelve we become more mature and grow into young adults. Personally looking back to my grade nine self and comparing her to my grade twelve self of today, I am able to see changes in my character, my athletics and my goals.
My Writing Journey Writing takes time and patience to succeed at doing it. I just think about how long the average American learns how to write. For instance, whenever I first started to write I was in first grade. Fast forward 15 years and I am still trying to perfect my writing. That is not to say I have not made great leaps and bounds throughout my journey, but there is still work to be done. Coming out of high school and going into college is like being thrown back into first grade. No more
traditional Chinese girl. In my memory, I was always told that I was very quiet and assiduous, and I was always being commissary in charge of studies of a class from my elementary school. After 6th grade, I enrolled in an outstanding students class of junior high school with distinction score. In the junior high school, I also studied hard, it was certain that I got good grades during my junior high school. There was a turning point to me in 2011. After consulted with my parents, I decided to go to
without my parents together and always arguing about who's going to have the custody of myself and brothers and sisters was not something easy. My parents separated when I was about seven years old. The separation made me not only a stronger person, but it made more mature when it comes to education and life. My education is something that I have been fighting for since the separation. Both of my parents have some education. My mother completed her GED, and my dad graduated from the high school I currently
My experience in education from kindergarten to being a senior in high school was very challenging but rewarding. Throughout my schooling, I was blessed to have some exceptional teachers and coaches that had taught me life lessons and challenged me to be a better person outside the classroom and a better student in the classroom. From kindergarten to being a senior in high school, I attended three different types of schools in the South Carolina School system. I attended a small private Christian
Ring! Ring! “Alright class everyone grab the books under your desk, and turn to page twenty one, please.” This is the worst thing that I could ever hear. When I was in just sixth grade I never wanted to attend school at all. School to me was like the prisons that hold all the killers and fanatical men. But let’s snap back to in that classroom, “Shawn, Can you please read the first paragraph?” As much as I wanted to scream no, I could never come to saying it. “Sure Mrs. Nelson.” Okay Shawn its time
My overall experience from Pre- K to high school was good. Although experience with school did not start off on a good foot. I hated school as a child. Anytime my mom would drop me off to school, I would cry for an hour. In fact, I did not stop crying when my mom would leave me at school until I reached the second grade. School always made me feel anxious, no matter how many friends I made nor how many teachers I liked. Although the anxiety has not gone away, I have learned how to deal with it.
before my seventh birthday my brother and I, traveled from Jamaica to Miami. Prior to this time we live with our mother, however, she made the difficult decision to send her children to live with our dad and grandmother. Years after she explain that she made this decision to give my brother and me the opportunity to get a better education and ultimately a better life. Although it was a difficult decision, fast forwarding thirty years her dreams for me has definitely been fulfilled. School in America
