Education
I remember as a child sitting down at the kitchen table, with my father by my side, making up math problems, for practice. I dreaded those times, I wasn’t the best in math, and my grade reflected that. With the help of my father, I was able to improve my grade slightly but not much. There was only a certain amount of math that he understood, so he wouldn’t be able to help me much longer. Once I entered the eighth grade I had a remarkable math teacher, which loved her job as her students. Her name was Mrs. Crawford, and she cared so much about my education and the rest of the students’ education. She unfortunately died, my freshman year of high school, but I still remember her to this day. As my high school career progressed, I was lucky enough to have wonderful teachers be my math teachers and help me and not give up on me. Now that I am in college, I strive to learn more and be successful in this subject that I suffered so much. Hopefully now that I remain in college I will seek help when required from tutors, which will help me follow my dreams.
The fact that I was shy, and still am didn’t help me much when it came to asking questions. Furthermore, whenever the teacher gave the lesson, she would just

Crawford died, I made a promise to myself that I would always ask questions whenever I had doubts or didn’t understand something. To this day I still loathe the subject math, but I am getting better at asking questions and I know where I can receive help if I ever need assistance. With the experience I had with my past teachers, which didn’t help me much at all, I hope to someday be able to help people that are in the need of help. I hope to pursue the career in physical therapy and help patients rehabilitate and learn how to do their exercises in the correct manner and form. Just like Mrs. Crawford helped me learn the correct way on how to do math problems. I will never give up on any of my goals, no matter what obstacles that get in my

    When I got home from school I would act like a math teacher and teach my sister math, even though she is older than me. I had the same teacher to teach me math in second and fourth grade; I love her so much. It was my math teacher, Mrs. Patrice Worrells who inspired my love of math and determination, and her example and knowledge led me to want to pursue a career as an accountant. Mrs. Worrells made sure I knew all the basics of math because without the basics there is no way to understand the higher levels. She taught me to always be determined, how to get through tests, and how to stay positive.…

    I always loved math so learning it came easy to me. In 7th grade, I took a test that skipped me one year in mathematics. I also learned mathematics through great teachers; however, since some of my math teachers weren’t good at teaching math, I did have problems in a few courses. In 9th grade, I took Geometry and struggled because the teacher wasn’t that good at teaching it. But when I reached Algebra II in 10th grade, I accelerated at it because I had a phenomenal teacher.…

    Learning facts should in some way lead to expanding a student 's thinking skills or relate to their daily lives. Some teachers consider this and work it into their teaching methods, but many don’t. It seems to me that in many classes, I am being prepared to do nothing but pass tests. For example, I am told that I should know certain things for the ACT, but not how they will help me after college. It is true that students have to make that connection themselves often times, but it is impossible if there is no connection to make.…

    Even though the year in a college level math class was difficult, I handled it fairly well with teaching myself the units that she did not cover. There were times that she did not even feel like teaching so we would have a “soak day” in which we simply studied material that we had gone over in the unit up until that point. After constantly worrying about my grade, I earned a 96 and got a 4 on the AP Exam (no thanks to my teacher). This past year, my junior year (I’m doing dual enrollment), I took accelerated precalculus with Mrs. Munsey. Her class was extremely easy for me, and I earned a 100 by the end of the year.…

    I hope to be a great role model for the teachers that are not as into their job as they should be. Some teachers will tell you that they gave been in the profession m any years, but you can’t tell that they are into their teaching as they should be. They are not giving this child the advice or help that they need daily. I hope to become more than just a teacher that is all about books and the curriculum, I want my students to always want to be ready and excited for the next day, that’s how you keep the students off the streets and into the books. I want all my students to succeed and become great at whatever they may do.…

    My experience with math has not been consistent. Some years in school involved a extra time working on math problems, while other years were relaxed for me. Through all of the hours working hard to succeed in math, I learned to be a better teacher. My first memories of math begin in first grade. I recall my teacher asking me to go to the office to make copies of a worksheet.…

    The co-teaching model set up in my second period classroom isn’t an ideal team teaching process. My mentor teacher and her counterpart haven’t successfully discovered each other’s strengths and weaknesses which can make team teaching very difficult and can cause them to lose sight of the ultimate goal, which is the individual student. Their supports do help students with disabilities in my classroom but I wish they would make it more of a team effort, instead of assigning one person to be in charge of individually helping a student. I hope to gain further knowledge into the co-teaching and collaboration world and learn techniques that I can use in the classroom. I am excited to continue to watch how collaboration and co- teaching play out in my classroom.…

    When my friend Lauren Bonarek brought up her regular level humanities class and the topic of hieroglyphics, I felt haughty as I had already learned about them two months ago. However, she blew me away with her in depth knowledge of Egypt. I failed to predict she would be so knowledgeable, because the school system had convinced me, along with many others, that taking hard classes was the best way to prove a person is intelligent. I see now that this is not the case, as a school system valuing perfection over hard work has turned students into fixed…

    As I previously mention, my cousin was one of them. She is a really important person in my life because she helped me to understand every term, problem, and formula, anything of math related.

Know a day she still around when I need her help even if they are upper grade math courses. My cousin was a really helpful person I appreciate her help on those times of struggle.…
