Appeal Letter For Reinstatement

Good Essays
Dear Members of the Reinstatement Committee: I am applying to be reinstated for the spring semester of 2017. This past semester has been tremendously harder for me that I originally thought. The statement, you don’t realize how much something means to you until its gone could not have proved more true to me in the past couple of months. I have loved my time at Washburn but last spring I let myself get lazy and I take full responsibility for that. I did participate in the STAR program like I should have. My time management skills were lacking, my study habits were less than suitable, and my overall attitude about school was not where it should have been. I took school for granted and I am upset it took me not being able to go for me to realize …show more content…
The short absence I took opened my eyes to how much I really do love school and love getting further educated. Not being able to be in school changed my whole perspective on how I need to go about life and my education, but also my attitude has changed and I have become much more motivated to succeed in everything I do. The first chance I had when I returned to Topeka from summer break I contacted the reinstatement advisor so I could start the process as soon as possible. I met with her at her soonest appointment time so I could fully grasp what I needed to do, and what my options were. During our meeting I explained to her that I had spent the last three months trying to figure out ways to be more successful in school. After tremendous thought I have found ways so that I will find the right balance next semester, if I am granted an opportunity for a second chance. I will use the resources Washburn so graciously provides their students, like tutors and the writing lab. I will also participate in the STAR program because I feel that will also help me succeed with finding the right balance in my classes and provide other helpful information. I will also create a set schedule of study time to better improve not only my study habits but also my time management skills. I am also planning on hiring a tutor for my more difficult classes to give me any extra help I can get to better understand the material. I …show more content…
It made me grow up and learn to take responsibility for my actions. Although it has been a negative experience it has given me a more positive outlook on life and how lucky I am to have been given such a great opportunity to further my education, and how it has opened my eyes to not take things to granted and only I can take the blame for not succeeding. The only way to fix a wrong is to make a change and I am more than prepared for the work I have ahead of me, and I am so eager to see how far this motivation will take

    My English skills are good based on my country education, but they are nothing to compare with the natives when I came here. The entire things, which I expected before, did not happen in the right ways. I started to struggle with English and communication. Struggling to understand the teachers instructions made me want to give up and go back home badly. A lot of students made jokes of me because I am different than most of them, and could not get along with them.…

    By this time I had already gotten myself a new job with the company I am currently with, and after a few years of hard work and promotions they encouraged me to go back to school. They have even been willing to work with my schedule to some degree. This, and the motivation to succeed long term and move up in my career has brought me to where I am now. I have still struggled trying to juggle full time work and school, but my grades have sufficiently improved as well as my study habits and my drive. I study now because I want to actually learn the subjects, not just to pass a test.…

    I expect to use professional communication at all times and always be in the loop with teachers, so I can always have a solution to a problem or if I have a question about something. Students need to know why it is important to learn what I am teaching them and how it can empower their education. I will get better at communicating with parents and staff because I will constantly be providing feedback about students and myself to them. Conducting conferences with students and the school’s staff will mold me into a master teacher as the years come by. My mentor tells me that without communication there would be gaps and that is not a good aspect of your teaching path.…

    Over the course of the semester, I have learned all of the skills necessary to excel in school and college. Some of the most important things I have learned were how to manage time and how to be an active reader. Before learning how to manage my time, I would easily get distracted and procrastinate but now I have learned how to get everything done in a timely manner. Also, before the course I would struggle to comprehend what my textbook said but thanks to the course, I now spend the time to reevaluate what I am reading to fully understand the material. Other helpful lessons I have learned from this class were how to take good, helpful notes and what kind of learner I am.…

    I wish I had not come into it with the expectations that my classroom would be anything like my old classroom. One of the reasons that I was extremely interested in taking Project FOCUS for a second time was the ability for me to go right into teaching without having to overcome such a large learning curve. Unfortunately, Ms. Williams, my classroom teacher from last year moves out of state and I was introduced to an entirely new learning curve at the start of this semester. Once again, this taught me that value in being adaptable, something that I often struggle…

    During the first week I really struggled with my time management and I put the things I wanted to do with Kjell before the things I needed to do, such as school and picking up. At the end of the day, that left me with a huge mess and a boatload of classes. However, during the last week I was able to schedule out our play time and my school time. Better time management allowed for a much more relaxed and enjoyable week. Mastering that particular skill will help me in all of my future tasks, whether its college and I need to get homework done or I am working and have to turn something in for my boss.…

    So from this realization, I started doing things that would better myself as a person, as well as benefit the community. For example for the past three years in high school I have dedicated a couple hours a week to tutor underclassmen in mathematics. With my help in the past few years, several students have gotten the grades that they wanted. In addition to tutoring, I started an engineering club with a friend this year, our aim is to help students explore career paths and build interest in the role that engineering has in the world we live in. Seeing the little differences that I make in other people 's lives is what drives me to succeed today, because I know that if I am succeed in life, I will be able to help many more lives.…
