Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps can lead to many career paths. JROTC cadets can go into the military at a higher rank or the program can just help students with leadership for any job. I joined JROTC because my dad is the Commander. Also in the year before I saw many friends go through the first year of the program and learn so much. I have now seen results first hand and through two days realized how much JROTC can help me. I have high standards for everything I do, and JROTC is no exception. I really believe the program will live up to my standards because there are wonderful role models, excellent instructors, and amazing friends. I expect to become more of a leader and be able to work better on a team. JROTC is mainly based on teaching leadership, so with the addition of being surrounded by exceptional people, I think I can achieve my goal of becoming a better leader. Another major part is teamwork. Without teamwork the unit wouldn’t function properly, as is the same in a sport like soccer. We have done platoon sit-ups and platoon push-ups together and just through these small team activities I have seen the importance of teamwork. I have also discovered the importance of not getting kicked in the head through these activities. My expectations are high, but I believe through hard work and dedication I can achieve anything I set my mind to. Expectations are one thing but accomplishments are another story. Accomplishing something can mean that a goal is met or a dream has come true. During ROTC I wish to accomplish improvements on my times for running, becoming a better leader, becoming more physically fit, improving my soccer technique by becoming a better team player, and learning to like dodge ball. These accomplishments are very important to me because they can help me succeed in life. I started running track this year and my fastest mile time was 6:46
personal experience of being a part of the JROTC Program at Parkdale High School has been unforgettable from the beginning to end. I was not in JROTC since the first day of school, I had to work hard and be on top of my counselor, as well as talk to SGM in order to be put in the program. I do believe this is one of the reason in which I put so much effort in to succeeding in the program. Another reason is because my older sister was a part of the JROTC program at Eleanor Roosevelt High School and…
“JROTC builds character and leadership”
To begin, the JROTC helps build character by having you take part in the program. JROTC shows you how to be a good leader, and if you become a good leader you can go far. It also helps you find yourself and what kind of a person you become. We do all kinds of activities where it has you take control of your class. I know that it has helped me become a better leader and a better person. Just from being in the program for three years JROTC has showed me a…

“Why Did I enroll in JROTC”
The reason I enrolled in JROTC was to better myself as a young person and to learn the fundamentals of the Army. When I was in the 8th grade at James Martin Middle School we had things called high school days which were when Zebulon B. Vance High school used to come over and talk to us about high school. I remember one day they came and it was their ROTC program but they have the air force program…

There are several ways that the JROTC program motives young people to join in. One of
those several ways is community service. Doing community service is very important to the
JROTC program. It does not only define the selflessservice you give but the integrity you have.
In JROTC you can do community service by putting flags on veterans grave sites, helping out in
the Red Cross Blood Drive, and so many other things…
area so all teachers have the opportunity to use research-based practices. Personally, I believe that you will have to assess for yourself whether these strategies help your students improve their test scores, become more motivated to learn, or are better able to grasp the materials that you are teaching.
In conclusion, these research-based strategies are data driven and teachers are encouraged to utilize them in their daily instruction. Study shows that students interact with the teacher more…
everyone who worked for our organization. The committee was formed by this individual about 3 years ago, and is now a part of our organizations culture. Every year we look forward to employee appreciation week, everyone donates and each year becomes better than the last. This is an example of how one individual can make a suggestion and be proactive, and inspire an organizational change.
Cultures bind the organization together and at the same time greatly influence the behavior of individuals.…
alive on. In that I have the. program of JROTC to be thankful for, because without it, I doubt I'd have discovered as many opportunities to get involved outside the classroom. For four years I've volunteered at football games, Color Guards, festivals, and details, and among these I've experienced a wide array of roles as a participant that grew from being a team member to holding service as Cadet in Charge. These lessons have all taught me how to become a better citizen whilst still remembering to enjoy…

parents were very strict and my brother and I were raised as if we were living in Colombia so that we would appreciate all the opportunities we have here in America and so that we would remain humble where ever we went.
As time went on my mother got better and she started working long hours in the factory again. By the time my brother was old enough to go to school, I was put in charge of both of us and our well being. I would have to wake us up, make breakfast, made sure we both got ready for school…
