De Pere High School Leadership Examples

Improved Essays
As a student of De Pere High School, I, Abby; try my best to show a good example of how a De Pere High School student should represent themselves. Showing a good example for other students has always been very important to me. I show the students how to apply themselves to become better people whether it’s in or out of school. As I make an impact on others, I hope to make a big enough impact so that they will want to keep impacting others as well. Leadership is the one big thing that helps you impact others, and I believe that I show that at De Pere High School.

This year, I wanted to start getting more involved in clubs and extracurricular activities, because I felt last year, having just moved here and being a freshman, I was a little hesitant when joining clubs and activities. As a result, earlier this year, I decided to run for student council representative. Happily, I got voted in, and so far I’ve loved it! I have got to plan and help set up events, and recently I just got voted into being the next upcoming Blood Drive Coordinator, which will show my leadership skills. The Blood Drive Coordinator runs and works the Blood Drive; this job carries the duties of keeping in contact with the American Red Cross Association, buying extra food and decorations, and then setting up who’s working the shifts.

Just overall, I show great school spirit in anything the school puts on. For example, during dress up week during the fall, I dress up every week, because I want to show other students that dressing up or getting involved with school activities is “cool”, because it so is! Or if student council is putting on a badminton tournament, or DREAM Team is putting on a dodgeball tournament, I encourage students to participate in those events, because being involved in those types of school activities is what keeps you out of trouble, and it keeps you

    By sophomore year, I had put in hours of extra practice, attended camps and really honed in on my skills and was voted to be the JV team captain by my teammates. Gradually, my perspective began to change. I realized very quickly that because I was the team captain, I was being watched as an example. This meant that the way I conducted myself around others could make an impact on them and I wanted to be sure that my impact was always positive, even in the most seemingly insignificant…

    Throughout high school I was involved in social justice club, debate, and outside of school volunteering and all of these extracurricular activities showed my friends and community that I am ambitious and motivated by the aspect of changing the future for the better hopefully through politics and lobbying. My friend Emily noted my self-awareness and passion, “Emma is an advocate for social justice and is passionate about everything she gets involved with. Not many high school students know about how they want to go out and change the world, but by senior year, Emma knew exactly how she wanted to impact her community through the Justice Club and Faith in Action class by getting involved in Habitat for Humanity.

    Preparation for college began when I was in middle school. I strove to attain favorable grades in all of my classes and form valuable relationships with my superiors. When I entered high school I realized I had to step up my academic abilities in order to succeed, however, this was slightly more difficult than anticipated. After freshman year had passed and I was able to get a feel for what high school was like, I joined clubs and sports for the sake of keeping myself occupied with extra curricular activities. Joining JV swim team taught me how to manage my time so that I could achieve good grades while still being able to participate in a sport.…

    I thought the tour was a good thing to do in order to learn more about juvenile’s delinquents and the agencies they are put through, plus it was my first time going on a field trip sense freshmen year of high school. I also thought the trip was a good thing to attend, because it personally helped me get an idea of what it is like working in a job field like that for a backup plan. Another positive thought about the trip was that we got a little taste of what the juveniles go through on a daily basis there, both good things and bad. The only problem I had with the trip was that it was very short and felt like we were being rushed. I know we got there late, because of someone, so next time I think the class should leave no matter who isn’t there on time, but overall I did enjoy the tour and I learned a lot about it as…

In my undergraduate program I always knew I wanted to working with children, but it was a challenge for me to choose one career path I felt my work would make a difference. The defining moment for my career was the passion I found working with special need students, and the hard work to help them succeed academically. Being part of the education growth for students with special needs helped me find the career path I fell in love with, and knew I wanted to continue to advance my education in the field.…

    Education provides a thorough background in social, cultural, and academic areas. These skills must be passed on to each student, despite his or her background or intellectual challenges. In order for the goal of education to be accomplished, teachers must be willing to challenge, support, and encourage their students. Becoming a teacher is important to me because I feel like I can accomplish more as an educator than I could as anything else. I believe that I have the capabilities of being a successful educator.…

    It was small volunteering roles back then such as score keeping after school every day. Then in grade 8 I was awarded the “Student Who Makes A Difference” award by the staff members at my middle school. I was awarded this because of my ongoing positive attitude and outgoing nature and was also an active participant who encouraged other learners to reach their full potential in both school and the community. I was also recognized for my active participation in the school and community by being the chosen female to go to a summer camp called OELC, which stands for “Ontario Educational Leadership Centre”. This was a camp where potential leaders were picked out of their high schools all across Ontario and were sent to OELC for a week.…
