I was raised in a Christian home where my parents taught God’s Word as our guide for life. Every single evening, we all prayed together as a family, usually standing in a circle with all six of us holding hands. It was usually brief, but it was not taken lightly, and it gave me a strong sense of security in God and family. The Bible says, “Train up a child in the way that he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it”, Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV). My parents firmly believe this, and they showed it, as not only did we pray together, but we also had family Bible studies and attended church together. My parents also gave us a good sense of high moral standards. I remember, when trying to figure out how much I should do for a “needy” friend of mine, my mother reminding me that we were called to be servants, but not slaves! I have remembered that ever since and now, finally, I have learned to say no to other’s expectations of me when I feel it necessary, without feeling too badly about it.
I find myself reading this short paragraph over and over(above). My topic sentence makes me happy and proud. Going back to school was the best thing I have done. I chose to talk about going back to school to the “future employer” because it shows I am motivated as well as dedicated. This class has brought a lot to my attention. The mannerism that is expected in the “business world” is to speak and write well. It is extremely important to know how to write (type) a meaning full and proper paper whether it is for school or work. I have noticed a great impact in my vocabulary and writing skills. My boss told me on Monday he is impressed with the new docs I typed up for our new clients (with no help from him). I was not excited about this class
What well in your classes? What did you need to do differently? What is your plan for success this semester? In this class, what will you need to do to be successful?
Imagine falling of a chair. Not that bad right? Now, imagine falling of a chair in front of the whole cafeteria. Funny? Yes. Painful? Definitely. So embarrassing that you hid in your teacher’s classroom for the remaining time of the school day? Sounds like me! After many years of mental preparation, physiological therapy, and complete avoidance of using chairs in front of others, I was finally able to overcome my tragedy. Like every other day, I ardently waited for lunch time to arrive. As soon as the bell rang, I ran to the cafeteria. I sat, I ate, and just when I was about to throw my food away…
The class I am tutoring is a 3rd grade classroom at Palmers Elementary. Mrs Keri Shivle is the teacher of the classroom. I tutor Tuesday from 12:30 to 1:30pm. The times i'm in the classroom the students are always reading or doing an language art activity. The times i have been in the classroom i been working with three students. One is Jakiey and Lavonta and sometimes i work with Angeli. I do different things with them such as helping them with homework or reading to them and then having them read it back to me. We also play games such as vocabulary ones, phonics.
My guided lesson 3 went really well this week. This week the lesson had been implemented exactly the way it had been planned. The lesson began with students looking at the title page and making predictions about the book. Everyone had interesting points to share about the predictions they made. I could tell the students were really excited to read this book as it was very colorful and it got their attention. Before we started reading, I asked the students to look for main events that took place in the book as it will help them retell the story at the end. All the students were able to retell the story to me at the end. What went well the most was the fact that my students brought the main events to my attention on their own before retelling
I am very interested in taking College Prep. English instead of English 11 for my second semester. I feel by taking College Prep. English it will benefit me most during college, I want to have the ability to handle what college has to give me and by taking this class I feel I will be prepared.

My goals to become a better writer is to enhance my vocabulary and express myself more in my writing and I know this class will help me achieve my goals.
As a teacher, I’ve had the opportunity to work and interact with many professionals and families from different cultures. Personally, and considering the fact that I also come from another country, I’ve seen myself facing several cross cultural barriers.
As a college student, I am growing mentally and physically. I learned how to communicate with others, manage my responsibilities, realize my abilities and be confident in my life. This course is assisting me in my growth by every Saturday learning a new capability about myself and enriching my mind. Also is helping manage my emotions since I am taking phycology I know more about my depression and anxiety plus I learned that many people have and have experienced the same emotions I have been experiencing.
At the beginning of 2016, I didn't think I’d be coming out so soon. My AP Language Arts teacher assigned a performance piece that quickly crept up on me. We were told to stand in front of the class and share a piece of our identity; it was nothing like any other assignment I had done before.
My faith in Christ and college experiences have taught me the freedom found in Christ and wider perspectives than the boundaries I am held to within my family system. I have changed my view from needing my parents’ permission to now asking advice as I am maturing; however, I must still consider my actions that my parents believe reflect how they raised me. I can demonstrate humility and God’s teachings by putting my desires aside sometimes and respecting my parents’
Growing up, I’ve been told the same line over and over again, “Make sure whatever you grow up to be, you will love.” With this advice, I began my life journey of finding out what I wanted to be. This advice haunted my life for multiple year as I struggle to find what my life would become. This constant struggle had myself worrying that I wouldn’t find anything I would love. Eventually, my final decision was made. This is to become a special Elementary Elementary Teacher. Entering the field of education, not only seems what's right, it also seems like I could change the generation of children.
Throughout my teenage years, I have been inviting people to church with me, so I can introduce them to God. I have found that in my life I have been my best self when I’m with God, and when I live through God’s ways. About a month or two ago, I asked my friend, Dominic, if he wanted to go to church with me because we had talked about him joining me in church. He notices the way I live my life, and he knows that I try to live
I’ve only been able to teach a handful of lessons in my pre-service, but the two core teaching strategies that I have used the most are whole group discussion and student led learning. While teacher led instruction is very important, I find that lessons stick with students better when their voices are being heard and they’re personally delving into the content. I really like when students look at primary materials, establish their own opinions, and then share their thoughts and processes with the rest of the class. This allows students to gain different perspectives and really think through the topic at hand. These strategies work on students’ listening and critical thinking skills which are just as important outside of the classroom as they
Having a dad as pastor is harder than one might imagine. It is hard to come to the realization that you do not have a relationship with God. I knew all the book smarts, but not Jesus. It was not until we had nothing that I saw God at work. And then I realized I needed him dearly. I trust that when I die I will hear,” Well done my good and faithful
