My Goals
This semester is a new beginning for me. I 'm excited to continue this year working hard for good grades and experiencing new opportunities that make me a better person. My grades in school are my highest priority. I’m always worried about my grades going down or not being prepared for an exam. However, I will not back down this semester. I plan to do the best I can to learn a good impression for the rest of the college years. This year is the start of many more and I don’t want bad grades to lower my self esteem. The way to keep good grades is to study hard, go to class, and focus on the education. Anytime I can find time to study before or after work, I will make good use of. Waking up in the morning for class can be a struggle some

However giving back to the community is something I still want to pursue more often when I can get the chance. I enjoy helping out in nursing homes but can sometimes be hard to help out for so many hours. After working in the hospital for 2 years, i’ve come to realization that I enjoy working with senior citizens. This motivation I had to give back gave me new opportunities at different nursing homes meeting a variety of people. The St. Francis Ministry would be a great place for me to visit to find more information about service at various places who need volunteers. I see service now as I am helping those who need me, when no one else will or can’t afford to. When I become of age in which I need guidance, I would want someone to do the same for me. Working toward this dream of mind, to work with seniors, Next summer my goal is to take a physical therapy technician course. This course will give me a view on what my career field will be like. The class will teach me the start of what I will be doing for the rest of my life. I will also be able to help others in a way that I feel makes more of an impact. I will need to enlist in the course soon to ensure I get an opening as soon as possible. This course will take a lot of time out of my schedule and may be challenging for me. Never before have I taken a class that is specialized for a specific job. To prepare for this class I can talk to a counselor and maybe discuss what I can do in preparation of the course and how to sign up. I am very excited to be able to make a difference in the world so early in my life with a fresh start. This semester I believe is going to change me as a person for the greater and help me overcome challenges in the far

    For my first year in the classroom, one of my goals is to find a behavior system that I will be able to use throughout the whole year. To go along with the behavior system, I want to improve the routines and procedures. I always have them in place, but do not always follow them. It is imperative to follow these consistently because if a teacher does not, then the students could believe they do not have to. If the students do not follow the rules and routines, the teacher could lose control of the class and it will take a long time to get the class back under control.…

    I believe that it is important for someone to have a great education and I am currently in that process with gaining more knowledge in college. I worked extremely hard in my life to make sure I can become someone successful in the future. I am making sure that in my life I will be able to help my future family have a happy and prosperous life.

    The journey through High School could sometimes be difficult for some people, but for me it was all about having to shift my focus to school and do whatever needed to be done to insure that my schooling would have a positive impact on my future. My high school experience, as of now, has been pretty good considering that I had to make some changes to how I view education and its importance.
