I always told myself I wasn't going to be like them. They were telling me one thing, but I wanted something completely different. At least that's what my 12 year old, indecisive brain thought. I was young, and of course I didn't want to do what people said. I changed my mind every three days, but I was adamant, I wasn't going to listen to them.
Everyone has their first memory when they have to enter the adult world, mine just happened to be my junior year of high school. This year was just a little glimpse of what was going to be the rest of my life. Getting my first job was bitter sweet. I had to learn how to manage my time between school, sports, and now a job. After my first week of school I had to start my new job.

Science was not my favorite subject in elementary or middle school, but my fondest memories of those years involved science. I can vividly remember working on a project on mucus in the eighth grade, and the fun I had putting my information together. When my name was called, I thought my teacher would tell me I had done poorly, but she applauded me and told me my project was among the best. From there, my love for science blossomed and I looked forward to completing research projects. In the ninth grade, I wrote a research paper on stem cells, and I did not even consider it a burden; instead I looked forward to the debate on stem cell research, which was a component of the project. I looked forward to educating my peers about what I had learned during my research process. I wanted to hear all about what they had to teach me as well. Once a week, we would work on labs for the regents, and I always looked forward to doing them and analyzing my results afterwards.
My “1 student with a score of 0” received a one because he did not pay attention during the lesson. I might have been able to help if I had stood next to him and kept him on task. I believe he knows the information because he said things during the experiment that leads me to believe he can do better. His diagram actually reflects our experiment not our lesson and that in itself is interesting. My “1 student with a score of 1” was one that asked questions. I tried to provide different examples so make it easier but in hindsight I should have SHOWN an example by providing a visual. (I will be doing this in class tomorrow)
The concept of staffing was one that I felt, could fit well with this picture as well. Assessing performance helps managers and employees know how they are doing and what they can do to reach new goals or current goals that are not yet met (Klebern, concept 6, slide 15). This related to the picture because, the traffic light stands as the assessment sheet, where red means not meeting expectations, yellow means meets expectations, and green would stand for exceeding expectations. The lamp post represents the height that the employee wants to reach. The light is red so the employee needs to work harder to reach his/her goals in order to reach the view at the top of the lamp post. Assessments can be scary, but it is important to know how you are doing, so that if there is something that needs to be improved on than it can be done so, sooner than later. This will help you get better at your job along with help the company, so it is a win for everyone.
In 9th grade, I began tutoring every Tuesday after school and this continued through 10th grade. During that time, I discovered that my students had a negative disposition towards science. Many saw science as "boring." I wanted to change that idea, to help them realize the wonders of science, to prove that science is fascinating and entertaining. The following summer, I prepared my proposal and pitched my ideas to Mr. Terrence Davis, Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Hopkinsville.

Before I Was Born Did you know that my grandma’s family name was originally Karlsson if you were a man and Karlsdaughter if you were a woman? When my great, great grandfather moved to America they changed it to Carlson so it would be more American. This is how they came to America.
My first source is, “bmj.com.” It is an article, about a surrogate mother who lost her baby and how the parents came in contact with her. It also explains how she went to court because of losing the baby. My second source is People Magazine. The magazine tells a story of a mother who was a surrogate for her daughter's child. The mother was very supportive of the idea of a surrogate mother Sherri Dickson, told People Magazine, “‘I decided that if they needed somebody to carry their child, I would volunteer’” (qtd in Coder
After doing my Exploration of Aesthetics Paper last week, I decide to take it a step further. In my exploring the night sounds, it was hard to focus because of the loud sounds of the cicadas. I really didn’t know much about the insects except they come every 17 years and are really loud and everyone I know didn’t like them, so I didn’t because I don’t like bugs. However, a friend of mine posted a video and I watched it on cicadas. It changed my whole view on how I look at the insects at this point. They are beautiful creature and tell a story just like humans. We all have purpose in life and so does the cicadas. They live underground for 17 years. On a warm night they emerge and surface the land. They connect with each other, just like little children wanting to play with their friends after not seeing them for a long time. Then they transform to begin their final life on earth. The process is like giving birth as a human or letting out the lost soul and finding god for the first time. They become adults and search for their mates when shell hardens. Synchronized choir, we all call noise, is their mating call. They are finding love for the first time. They come in all colors, it’s sad watching the video
Disease Detectives, Astronomy, Hovercraft, and Mousetrap Vehicle are just a few of the many events you’d see while skimming the schedule for this year’s Science Olympiad competition. Ranging from tests to builds, the events tested students’ abilities in various scientific disciplines in a fun and competitive environment. This year, the

My two photos are of living room spaces, one more modern than the other. I personally love the 2nd image better as a living space because of the natural light. This element allows the space to seem much larger, if the first image would have more natural light it would
When we were told to pick a partner for the “Photo Partner Project” I felt like I was running around like a chicken without a head trying to find a partner, then the boy standing next to me asked if I wanted to be his partner for the project. I had never talked to, or even seen, this boy before, but I decided it was the perfect chance to get to know someone new. Shortly after my partner was picked for the project, I met my photo project partner, Dale Senart, in order to get to know him so we could complete the project. The vibe I got from Dale is that he is super into science, as his major is engineering physics, however, he has a strong interest in music, as he plays the trumpet and enjoys listening to many different types of music.
