Ever since I was young, I remember being completely fascinated with science, and specifically biology. Middle school was when I realized how fascinated I am by animals, their behavior, and their welfare. I began to notice the overpopulation issue of strays and the overfill in local shelters. It opened my eyes to what seemed like a different aspect of the world. There are so many social issues that people are focused on, and some people have started to ignore other living creatures. This has struck me. As I've been getting older, I feel, more and more, like I can make a difference, at least in my community. Now, since I have started driving, I have rehabilitated a kitten I found, taken countless stray cats to a local spay/neuter clinic, and

“Seventh Grade” and “Melting Pot” both have conflicts. In “Seventh Grade” Victor has an internal conflict and in “Melting Pot” there are external conflicts. An internal conflict is a conflict that is happening in someone or something’s mind. An external conflict is a conflict that is happening in the real world, it is not in someone’s brain. Both stories have conflicts that are vastly different.
During the past few weeks, I've found out that I have not been inspired by anyone or anything because of my lack of not exploring the world. But so far, I could be interested on three kinds of careers that might benefit me economically and socially. One of them is to work as a person who demolish tall buildings, I personally enjoy watching things being torn into pieces ; I guess that has something to do with my childhood. But in the other hand, I also enjoy working with animals, for example when i was a freshman in high school my english teacher took us to a field trip to an animal shelter ; I personally forgot what the whole point of going to an animal shelter was for. Anyway, during the time that I attended the animal shelter, I saw how these animals were abandoned by their owners in the streets, and with no love ; because I guess they are not cute like they were when they were young. I personally think that every single pet in this world deserves some love by their owners.
I sat quietly in my room, staring at the stacks of newspaper published in different languages on my desk. The drastically different opinions these newspapers express on the same issues had always surprised me. Though dissimilar from one and another, the arguments of each article appears convincing. Not knowing which one to believe, I fell into a vortex of confusion. When I was little, I thought each question can only has one solution just like every single door that can only be unlocked with one unique key. In elementary school. I was always told to behave and think in ways my teachers told me to. If two are argue about the same issue, one must be right and the other must be wrong. As usual, there is never room for doubt. When I was fourteen,
Part of the Russell County Middle School (RCMS) mission statement declares that we as an organization will help students accomplish what they are capable of. Procedures are in place to assist special education students and cater to gifted students, but some students seem to fall through the cracks. About five percent of the student population is retained each year and about one percent fail to capitalize on the opportunity to be promoted mid-year the following school year. A review of these students’ average data showed that absenteeism and discipline were issues, but that the students performed on or close to grade level on standardized tests.
I am not what someone would usually expect of a typical teenager. I am involved in many volunteer groups. I work diligently for animals and their rights. My love for animals has lead me to
George Washington Middle School has a fairly large population of special education students ranging from lower to higher functioning students. The teacher of the special education students at the middle school, Ms. Jones, had a difficult job in creating lesson plans and activities that would be engaging and on the appropriate level for all students. Ms. Jones found a new computer program that she knew all of her students would be able to enjoy and learn from. The mobile computer lab was a very hot commodity in the Middle School amongst all the teachers because they were new and they supported all the software that was coming out. Ms. Jones tried to see if the new computer program would work on the older computers so the class would be able
In “Social Class and the Hidden Curriculum of Work “ Jean Ayon states after supervising and monitoring personally 5 elementary schools. She comes to a conclusion that there are 4 kinds of schools in America and those are 1. Working class schools, 2. Middle-class schools, 3. Affluent professional schools, and 4. Executive elite schools. Anyon states that all classifications of schools are determined by your family’s social economic standpoint. Anyon claiming education pretty much stretches as far as the community will let it, and that most of the time children turn out to be in the same boat as their parents, or sometimes there are different circumstances and outliers. Like in any theory, prediction, or judgment there is always that chance or
The Superintendent walked solemnly down the dimly lit hallway. The vast walls of lockers gave him an overwhelming sense of nostalgia, eating away at his soul like acid eating away metal. The psychologically effects transmitted to his outer body, causing him to halt to an abrupt stop. Standing like a deer in headlights, his mind was instantaneously flooded with brisk images of the once flourishing hallways. He stifled a faux smile, composed himself, and erratically walked into the main office, where he prepared to apologetically deliver the final afternoon announcement of the High School’s history. Alone¬¬––later in his office, another pang of dense, impenetrable darkness suffocated him and he let out a cry of resignation. He put his chapped
I want to show the world how absolutely amazing God’s creatures are, and, for those who are not a follower of Christianity, I want to bring back the world’s fascination of zoölogy. In fact, as Dr. Jane Goodall, My biggest inspiration, said: “My mission is to create a world where we can live in harmony with nature.” Similarly, Anthony Douglas Williams said that: “It’s not whether animals will survive, it’s whether man has the will to save them.” These people and more are the reasons why I strive every single day to learn more and more about the animals of this world, and how we can save them. I have created multiple petitions, as well as organizations (Such as the Opossum Protection Program of South Florida) that serve to fulfill my huge dreams. I do not stand by the animals, for I stand with them; and, with an education, I want to protect and love
I think schools shouldn't ban dyed hair because it shows creativity as stated in the article. Also, people say it is distracting but it isn't because people focus on the teacher or their work. Schools shouldn't ban dyed hair because kids want to be creative. That is why schools shouldn't ban dyed
To get a better understanding of how a single person could make a difference, I joined the RRR, Recyclers, Reusers and Reducers team, which was a group of students that spread and encourage recycling and the proper separation and disposal of different materials. This way I taught myself ways to live in peace with the environment by respecting and managing natural resources. Not only was water conservation my mission during high school, but reusing materials to reduce waste was and has been my specialty ever since then. In addition to that, I became very interested on the study of the animal behaviors from my biology courses during my high school education and to gain a different insight; I volunteered in the K-nine Movement dog shelter where I learned compassion and respect for animals. By the end of high school, biology was part of my life, and the solid foundation of skills that I had grown in me like respect, humbleness and curiosity encouraged me to the study of biological
I’ve always known my path in life, ever since I was a little girl. My mind constantly revolved around one idea; working with animals. Nobody knew better than I that this was my fate, my purpose. I dreamt of being able to work alongside a variety of creatures, no matter the species; I’m not afraid of much. My biggest opportunity came to me in the late spring of 2017. It was like I was given a gift by the gods themselves; I was chosen to volunteer at the zoo.
Gant Elementary School is a typical of American society in being culturally and linguistically diverse. According to its enrollment demographics, the total enrollment in Minnie Gant Elementary School is 590 over the school year from 2014 to 2015. Among them, 52% of the students are white, 20% are Hispanics or Latinos, 7.5% are Asians, 6.4% are Black or African Americans, and 6.1% have two or more races. “Language diversity is a fact in U.S. school,” said my SERVE class teacher—Mrs. Mueller—now teaching third grade, “approximately twenty percent of students in my class speak another language other than English in the home.” Later, as I found that there are 29 students in my third grade classroom; although they are all fluent in English, five of them speak Spanish, one speaks Vietnamese, one speaks Thai, one speaks Japanese and another speaks Russian.
Social classes has been one of the biggest problems in the world today and even more so in a time before us. Some people might even ask what are social classes, well they create the rich, the poor, and the common blue collar worker. They are the reasons there are social inequalities. The bourgeois or the rich are supposedly the best of the best because in their minds money is what makes them better than everyone else, then the common working man, then your poor people ergo, the homeless, beggars, or the unemployed.
In addition to becoming more interested in science, I also became more involved in social issues. I became a member of the Peace Club, where the focus of education ourselves and members of our community on maintaining the peace. This was a significant problem in Northern Nigeria, where I lived. It was a
