It was my freshman year of high school where I was just a lost fish in a hugh sea of people attending Byron Nelson High School, with no clue who I was and my place in life. Life seemed rough but then again it was freshman year. When I was attending Byron I didn't know what I was going to do with my life in the future. On one day just like any other the morning school announcements came on; talking about some meeting in the counselor's office about some academy. At that time I had no idea what they were talking about and I had never even heard of Eaton High school, which happens to be the new high school for my school district. It came to lunch time where my friend that I sat with was absent, so I figured why not go see what this meeting is
My transfer process from the dreary and jaded feeling halls of my High-School to Isothermal Community College was drastic. Rutherford - Spindale Central High made me feel trapped and like none of my choices mattered in the slightest bit. When I finally graduated I knew my life would change and it has quite a bit. I make my own decisions and I am responsible for important things, such as my education and grades. I am thankful for the freedom that my college life gives me as well as the responsibility.
Carolina Flores has had an extraordinary experience at Casco Bay High School. She had a passionate smile as she said, “I would redo my four years here again.” Her journey before a CBHS was different. Her 8th grade year everyone kept telling her only weird go to CBHS or it's a hard school. But her mother didn't wanted her to go to Deering High school because her older sister had a horrible experience at DHS. “My older sister didn't want me to same experience as she did in high school,” Carolina said. But right now she is so grateful and thankful for mother forcing her to go Casco. She learned how to come out of her comfort zone, for example, her biggest millstone was being a dj at her 10th grade year for the Halloween dance.
When I was in eighth grade, I did not know it, but my mom was about to change my life forever. I still remember the day she showed me the website for the Vet Science program at the Morris County School of Technology. I was in my grandmother’s house, and my mother pulled me over to the counter where she was sitting with her computer. When she showed me the program, I dismissed the idea of changing schools immediately. I did not want to think about going anywhere for high school but my small, Christian private school because I was content and did not feel the need to step out of my comfort zone.
Before I attended Middlebridge School, I went to Holderness School in New Hampshire. At Holderness, a very nice school with strong academics, I felt that I wasn’t supported in my education, which I had struggled with. At Holderness School, my teachers did not understand my learning differences and I struggled in many of my courses. My first year, my academic advisor was not a member of the academic staff and, though he supported me to the best of his ability, I wasn’t able to show general growth in my studies. Toward the end of my second year, my parents and I decided for me to take educational testing and from that testing and, through an education consultant, find a new school that could support me academically and socially.
As I reminisce about all that I have gone through the past few years, I’m glad that I chose to receive my education from the Takoma Park Magnet School and Montgomery Blair HS . Looking back, I can undoubtedly say that it would have been unwise for me to have taken a different route. In conclusion, I’m willing to take risks regarding my education, and I know that the money and time I invest to go in a certain direction with my life and career will have countless positive
The summer after my first year of high school, I made a hasty decision to switch to a new school in a new town. I decided that it could be a great opportunity to improve my student profile. Before even thinking about it, I applied, got accepted, and was moving in with my father forty-five minutes away from the town that I had grown up in.
I just entered 9th grade in Hampton Bays High School. I enjoy playing soccer and I love photography, I think that it’s such a beautiful art. Before I came to Hampton Bays I was from East Hampton. Entered Hampton Bays towards the end of 8th grade. I learned a lot about transferring schools. I learned in many ways from negative to positive. People would always tell me that people in Hampton Bays were nice that I should be happy. That just entered from one ear and left right through the other. Now I have started to learn that I should be happy about starting a new chapter in my life. Because moving from place to place doesn't always have to be towards the negative, it can always be towards the positive. I think that everyone who has taken part of my journey in my life is part of who I am. People that I am close with, or not and just have only spoken to them once. I learn from them knowing what is right and what is not. No matter who the person is I learned something about them. That’s what I think makes me who I am, learning from others.
Since entering Hingham High School, I have developed into a leader equipped with skills that allow me to take roles in improving the community. My junior year, I became a Student Council fundraising committee head, where I was first introduced to taking initiative on a large scale and utilizing organizational skills to bring the school together. A noteworthy example of my leadership skills occurred when I, along with my fellow committee heads, were tasked with organizing the Hingham High lip sync. Initially, we worried that the event may be canceled as it had been the prior year when Student Council failed to sell tickets and assemble a team of teacher chaperones. Many members of the student body expressed their disappointment with previous
I was at a holiday party at some rich kids mansion. My high school was invited to host the festive hangout in their families house. Wreaths were hanging from all the windows and doors, a Christmas tree in the corner of the room full with ornaments of all shapes and colors, and a dim glow filled the room. Lighting was produced by candles sitting in their respective menorahs, and the warm radiance of the glowing ornaments. Though despite all the festive cheer, I felt lonely. All of the people attending were students of my high school and there was not anyone who knew me. I had looked across the room to see a girl, someone I have never seen. She seemed interesting, but I had decided against making any preceding judgements.
All in all, I feel like my experience at Hopkins County Central High School was a success. I eventually revisited my earlier question of “Are you sure this is what you want to do?” and I can truly answer this with a “Yes”. I feel that teaching is for me, although I know that High School would not be my first choice of path. As I am pursuing more the Middle School age, but by no means would I turn down a chance to tackle the challenge of a High School classroom
Well, my experience at the Career Night at West Potomac High School was a great experience with a lot of informing information. I learn so much about how each person I talked to choose their career and what made them do so. I gain the understand wat it is like to be in their shoes for a daily. They told me what makes their jobs so special. I learn that finding a career is not as easy as people may make it out to be. The best thing to do is always to find something your passionate about. For instance, I interviewed an FBI agent and she told me that she started off as a teacher. Then one day she was watching a movie with her husband about murder. From there she knew she likes the critical thinking of trying to find out who killed the victim.
Brooke knew that she should’ve been awake thirty minutes ago to get ready for school, but she had absolutely no motivation. Brooke was a student at North Shore High School, in San Jose, California. It was her first day of the last year of high school at the school she had nothing but hate for. Brooke loved sports, but didn’t like the fact that she had to go to school to play sports. She was involved with many activities and clubs, like volleyball, basketball, art club, choir and many others.
During this week I had the opportunity of attending Guilford Middle School on Tuesday September the 20th, I was there during core 2 which starts at 10: 58 until 12:05. I arrived a little early which gave me the time to talk to the teacher who I was assigned to. We had a small conversation about what plan was for Tuesday, he gave me a brief summary and I asked questions such as what would you like me to do? For that they I would just observed the activities around class, they were going to star by completing a study guide as a class. They would have a test soon and the information on the study guide seemed familiar to me, it was mainly about how the earth was form, plate tectonics, rock formations etc. During that day I also study my soundings,
