Nowadays there is more and more pressure being placed on students to decide their futures with haste and that pursuing an immediate college education is the best and only option. There are those who say that yes students can go and work for a short time and that yes they should enjoy a little time off but that the only smart decision is the one where you start your life sooner and skip all the procrastination all together. These people that view this as the only plausible option for a good future often beg the question as to what can possibly be the value of not continuing a college education. Now, though these opinions may hold some logic, taking time off cannot be as negative as it is perceived by parents and adults alike. There are arguments that taking time off, post high school for example may lead to maturity through experience both negative and positive, and that taking time off also may help lead to lead personal growth and mental development of an obvious underdeveloped teens or your adults. Essentially taking time off may in fact be negative but the personal gains and life experiences earned are well worth the risk. Though taking time off soon after high school may lead to a growth in complacency and procrastination in a student, taking time off may show to offer a series of experiences that otherwise if in school would never be experienced. Taking time off to work is a smart and independent decision as you place it on yourself to be your own person. It teaches…
until I had taken several of my general studies classes that I made a commitment to teach. Having played football through middle school and high school, I just assumed that whatever I did would have to be related to football. It was, however, during a time of reflection that I thought about a former football coach and the rapport that he had with me and other players. He wanted to bring out the best in each of us. It was then that I realized that I wanted to do the same.
As a teacher, I would strive…

helper or partner to students. A good teacher displays self confidence when he or she is teaching, as he or she has control of the classroom and the students know who is in charge. Without doubt, a good teacher knows what to teach and how to teach the most impressive knowledge to students. After reading these two articles, I have deeper understanding about good teachers and perfect education in an ideal way.

are designed to calculate a students’ performance in a classroom setting and their intellectual standing point on a particular subject. There have been many debates on whether or not the testing system is an accurate depiction of the success of a student. Students’ minds are cluttered with thoughts about how to increase their chances of getting that “A” instead of thoughts about how much they can learn from the class. Rather than learning about a specific subject, students have learned to cut corners…
There is all kind of students in the world today. Students can be all ages, races, and sexist. Students have the ability to study from home, school, and some students’ even study abroad. Some students don’t study but, instead they cheat. The kinds of students that I am going to discuss are elementary students, middle school, high school students, and college students.
Elementary students are students whose ages vary from the ages of four to about ten. The grades are usually kindergarten…
Organisation or Education
Chelsea Academy a great secondary school but struggles with one of the most important issues that students disagree on. Detentions.
I wonder whether Chelsea Academy cares more about their organisation or the education of their students. My point of this argument is that everyone makes mistakes in life including the old and young which we therefore learn about and come to a solution to make sure the issue doesn’t happen again. Don’t we…
the learning of their students with a learning disability. It examines the role of the parents and how they help and sometimes do not help when it comes to their child’s learning disability. It also examines the role of the school board and how they help with this important issue. It is important to realize that no one is at fault for this, but more so, solutions need to be found for this growing problem in elementary and secondary schools.
