In the previous years, I have made the decision to work concurrently with my education. I have been working as a waitress in a local restaurant for years. My parents were opposed to my working since they wanted me to focus on my grades, but I wanted to lessen the financial burden for them. Both of my parents never received an education and they wanted me to solely focus on school to secure myself a better future despite our poverty.
HELLO GUYS!!! I have something veryyyyyyyy important to tell you! After all of my stressing about FAFSA ( Free Application Federal Student Aid) , Colleges, and Transportation, I decided to further my education at Rowan University. It took me a long time to make this decision because this wasn’t my first choice! My first choice/ dream school was LIU Brooklyn ( Long Island University) in Brooklyn, New York. I was recently accepted there and planned on attending there, but their out-of-state tuition was extremely high! Their tuition was $33,000 a year and poor black man like myself, cannot afford it. I really loved LIU because it's a great school, beautiful campus, and most of all, it's in New York. I had my whole planned before it even started,
Before I became interested in Spelman college, I knew the type of education that I wanted to receive. I wanted an education that would cater to my many endeavors. I wanted to learn wholly, passionately and creatively. During NSO, when Dr. Burnett spoke, I realized receiving a liberal arts education is more than learning it is an act of resilience, and an act of courage.
Starting in the fall of 2012 was a big change in my thinking and learning skills. This was the year that I started my Liberal Arts Education here at Bridgewater College. Before I entered college everything had come easy to me whether it was sports or school, but during my
My Love/Hate Relationship with English Class From a young age, I have had an interest in reading and writing. When my mother found out she was pregnant with me, my sister, Kaitlyn, was four years old. Kaitlyn had just begun reading when she found out she would soon have a baby sister. My sister, eager to share her reading skills, begged my mother if she could read stories to me while I was still in the womb. Once I was born, the story-telling continued. I gravitated towards books at an early age, most likely because my sister was reading by the time I was big enough to hold a book. Reading has always been around me. Bright colors caught my attention as a child. If a book had a colorful cover, I wanted someone to read it to me. When I was three years old, I started learning how to read in my preschool class. While learning to talk, my way of telling someone I wanted or needed something was to point. My mother would tell me, “use your words”. Because my preschool teacher
I love this thread! I was in your Rennaissance English class at Horn from 2001- 2004. I attended Stanford University for undergrad before moving to Washington, DC where I taught middle school math. After I left the classroom, I was a coach of first-year math teachers and then began coaching school
Getting An Education When I was in high school, I wanted to go to college. I wanted to become well educated with a good
The progression of my education goals are as follows: My short term educational goal is to accepted as a nursing student here at York Technical College. My next goal will be to graduate from the nursing program as a Registered Nurse.
After graduation, I want to attend either Bradley university, Lewis university, or University of Illinois at Chicago with intentions of receiving my bachelors degree in either mechanical or civil engineering. I have intentions to attend college for the sake of my future and my family. Being the first one from my clan to attend college would surely make the trials and tribulations both my parents undergo worthwhile. It would be helpful for me knowing that I would not have to live such a difficult live like my father, who lives paycheck to paycheck every week. I hope to make attending college possible by raising as much money dedicated towards my education so that my student debt does not overwhelm me. In order to do that, I must continue to
I always wanted to go to college growing up, but because my family, along with my sisters and myself, we born and raised back in a refugee camp in Nepal. The school in which I started my schooling was also in a refugee camp. We didn’t have enough financial help to have all the things that we needed. We had to depend upon the support we got from the agencies. When we arrived in the United States, we got a lot of assistance from different agencies. I also got chance to attend school again. But, my family is composed of five members. My parents have to look after the education of the three of us. They do not have a lot monetary resources to fulfill my desire to go to college. I had nagging feeling that college was a dream that won't come true
In English 1, I did not learn material that might be needed in Honors English 2. A few of my friends had your class during the first term. They told me some of the things I should learn, provided I wanted your advice. I was hoping you could tell me what to expect and if I ever need help what I could do. I do not know how to annotate, write pearls or thesis. I am aware it will not be easy, however, I know this could be good for me.
My growth in English 101 was a long and difficult journey for me this would be my second time around taking this class. The thing that was difficult for me in class was the fact my medication made me drowsy so it made it difficult for me to stay awake
So now here I am. The Tribe was able to fund me in continuing my education, and I’m finally able to attend college. I never thought that I would make it to college. I was always beating myself up for having a GED and giving up in School. My first day of college in January, was filled with anxiety. I thought I was going to faint. But I survived. I now I’m enjoying the college life. Although it’s not much of a fabulous life. It’s challenging, stressful, intimidating, intense, but also fun. I want to encourage my children to never give up. I also want to remind them about how important school is just like my grandpa did. That getting an education is important. That without one they would struggle like I had. And reflecting back to when I was a
My college education has helped prepare me for this position. Through out my education, I had to take a few Middle School Methods classes. During these classes, we were asked to create lesson plans and then teach them to Middle School students. We also learned about the
Personal Narrative My Education Public school systems need to be more sensitive to their students. Parents play the major role in determining a child’s academic outcome, but the school system needs to notice children who don’t necessarily acknowledge their gift. These children need guidance -- I believe it is the schools’ responsibility to provide it to them. I have been through a situation that makes me feel strongly about the subject. My example is an indisputable case in point.
