My experience at Yti was good. I discovered things about myself I did not know. Our class was great when we first began. We worked together and accomplished many things such as getting money for our trip to NY, or even our project for victimology. I was always kind of shy, did not speak much so I was able to observe everyone around me. School really changed my life in many different ways, it gave me confidence. I have had many high points during my tenure at Yti, not so many low points. I believe second term was my lowest point when an instructor made me feel i was never going to make it. He did not like me, I did not like him either to be honest. I guess we were even, he always made fun of people with accent, he always made fun of …show more content…
I personally got along well with both of them, I still do. Another thing i did not like was seeing some of my classmates giving up and coming to class not wanting to learn. It was sad to see young people with all the chances in the world not taking advantage of them. So many good things happened to me during these 21 months. Receiving the president award was definitely an honor. Getting along with all my classmates was a great gratification for me. I treated everyone with respect and I left a good impression on them. When I went through my immigration issues I can attest that each one of them approched me and wished me good luck. Those things are important to me, I try to live my life with integrity and be true to myself and it was nice to know that my classmates saw that on me. This paragraph is going to be dedicated exclusively to you Mr. Henry. When I met you in third term I was not sure how things were going to work out between us. I had a bad experience in second term so I did not know what to expect from you. I knew I was going to work hard and do my best.

My first year of college I was devastated because I didn’t pass my math class due to procrastination. Not because the class
It is an honor be part of the Geography department at Frostburg, and earned a 4.0 GPA in my first semester at Frostburg State University, and getting accepted into the National Honor Society. I was never an honors students. In fact, growing up involved a life of setbacks and challenges. School was very difficult for me. I was held back a year in first grade, and placed in self-contained special education classes, I been diagnosed with severe ADD and learning disabilities. While in elementary school, at one of my I.E.P meetings, the teachers told my parents that I would never make it to college and that as a teenager I could get caught up in drugs and possibly be suicidal, And, that I would need medications and to see therapists. Also, the
Firstly I want to thank you so much for the help you have given me and the dedication you have put into your classes. It really shows and I was surprised with how much I was able to learn this year. My writing style has improved amazingly and it's actually pretty surprising. I never thought I would be able to write full essays in just 30 minutes or be prepared for the AP exam, but because of your class and your amazing teaching I was able to and I cannot thank you enough for that.
I got one of the greatest people in my life do to the single message that he sent and taking him up on that message. Without him I would be completely lost! He helped guide me in the right direction, made sure I always did the right thing and made the best decisions. He impacted my life an enormous amount, I would not be where I am today if he wants here with me to help. He taught me many thing, such as to never give up and always try and do your absolute best. Also pushed me to become successful life. One person can change your life, and make you who you
In junior year of high school I took an Advanced Placement European History course. Even though I passed the final exam, my overall score in the class was a failing grade. I was never so angry, upset, and embarrassed by a class before.
When I was presented the award, I thought back of all the community service and other events I did that helped shape me into the man I am today. It was a true honor to win that award and it’ll always make me feel proud that I gave back to the community that gave so much to me growing up. The second example would be losing in the Sectional Championship Game for baseball in my sophmore season. I’ll never forget all the great memories we made as a team that year, but coming up 1 game short of our goal was devastating. The seniors taught me so much, especially when it came to work
I felt like I could not do anything to help fix this and before I knew it I was graduating. I graduated knowing that I could have done so much better in school and that I did not show my full potential. That was a tough lesson to learn
Good Morning, I wanted to apologize for putting Gertsma instead of Prof. L. I was following the example in My Darton Guide to Writing. It also showed the date in the same format that I used. I was seriously thinking about dropping your class during the first week because I have three other classes and couldn't take a chance on failing, but I'm glad I didn't. When I use to get your emails my stress level would rise to the sky, but now I actually look forward to your feedback. I honestly believe if I had teachers like you when I was in High School, I wouldn't be in college now at 44 trying to start a new career. Thanks Professor. Gertsma
I also received a couple of honor certificates in different subjects and this made me think to myself, “maybe I’m not so bad after all” It was such a big deal to me, because some of my friends and teachers had told me that they didn’t really see any potential in me, and always compared me to my siblings. I proved them all wrong, and also made myself proud.
It was delicious. It tasted like victory, sweet and savory. It made me realize that all the sweat and tears are worth it. Receiving that award made me happy with not giving up and dropping the course.
