My Personal Goals And Expectation As A Student
It has been 20 years since I have been in school and I want to be here at The University of Phoenix to finally get the degree that I have put off for so many years. I realize there may be road blocks ahead of me that I am not aware of at this time, but I am making a commitment to myself to be successful. The road I have chosen is long overdue, but I believe it is the right choice and something I strongly desire. I selected the U of P due the accelerated program offered, the high caliber of educators, and recommendations by friends. After just one class, I'm very excited about my choice and look forward to the challenges ahead.
At the U of P, I hope to obtain the knowledge and tools to help me be successful and to finally make things "right" with myself and my employer. I say this as, in the past, I have misled my former and current employers that I have an education beyond high school. Through hard work and dedication, I have been able to produce and prosper in my professional life, even without an education beyond high school. But I feel with a "real" degree in hand, I'll be more confident and proud of myself for the hard work and dedication it will take to accomplish this goal. Also, the dark cloud of my misrepresentation will finally be lifted. I believe I will finally be proud of myself and gain the honor and integrity I desire.
My personal goal is to obtain a Bachelors degree in Business Management. As I pursue my goal at U of P, I must dedicate myself. To achieve this goal, there must be commitment, discipline, desire and expectations. There will be many challenges that lie ahead of me as I steadily make my journey to achieving a degree. But I feel I can overcome any obstacles and face any challenge, due to my maturity level and positive outlook. Twenty years ago, I did not feel the need or have the desire as I do now.
Other than the obvious goal of obtaining a degree, I hope to finally have the skills, knowledge and tools to obtain further success in my professional life. I also feel a degree will give me more confidence in myself...

My Goals as a Teacher: Changing Student's Lives812 words - 3 pages “To teach is to touch lives forever.” Erin Gruwell is an inspirational teacher that set an example of how a teacher should teach.

The reason people go into teaching is because they have a passion for children and the reason teachers succeed is because they never forget that passion. In an...

This essay is a typical admissions essay that describes your personal and professional goals as well how how you plan on achieveing them.552 words - 2 pages Like most people I don't have just one goal in life I have many. There are two goals, however, that mean the most to me. The first is to receive my B.A. in Performance and Visual Arts as well as to become a high school teacher for Creative Dramatics. My second most important goal in life, although people might believe I'm too young to even be considering this, is to get married and have a family.In order to achieve my first goal I plan...
This showed a pretty good use of English, and a dutiful (if uncreative) intention to follow the rules of "How to Write an Essay."
On the other hand, it doesn't seem like much of an effort. It clearly was not revised, and the student didn't even bother to fix the cap lock.
The three things I find different from middle school to high school
is that its more different than I thought.
> This makes no sense
> Being different is not three things; it is one thing
> What does "more different than I thought" even mean?
> "it's" not "its"
I always thought that high school would be hard because my Teachers always said "high school will be difficult" and that always scared me.
> "Teachers" should not be capitalized. It is not a proper noun.
> the quote is mispunctuated. " . . my teachers always said, "High school . . "
> This thought is too trite to express: "I thought it was going to be hard because my teachers told me it was going to be hard."
> Maybe you could say, "I was scared about going to high school because the teachers always warned us that it would be hard."
> But even if you did say this, it is off-topic for this essay, and you made no effort to bring it around to the topic.
> You just brought this in and dropped it. I guess it's supposed to serve as a little hat for the start of the essay (which is next) to prevent the start from being so bald.
> This entire passage is a graceless introduction to the essay
> Delete all the above
My middle school teachers had warned me that high school would be harder than middle school, but nothing prepared me for how unlike middle school it turned out to be.
The first thing that I find different is that high schools are big so its harder to find places and my classes.
> "First" is not a particularly apt transition word for a non-sequence list.
> A better principle of organization would have been from "least disconcerting" to "most strange"
> You can make "first" work if you sequence your realizations of the differences between the two schools
My first impression of my high school was that it was big -- much bigger than my middle school.
Whereas in middle school its easier to find places because I have been
there longer and its smaller than most high schools.
> You just said this
I felt at home in my middle school, but in high school I had a lot of trouble just finding my way around.
From my Sister's experience she finds high school alot different than middle school, meeting more people everyday and being in a different environment
tHE SECOND THING I FIND DIFFERENT IS THAT THE TEACHERS DON'T GIVE YOU ALOT OF TIME OR REMIND YOU OF A ASSINGMENT.
> The switch to all caps is mysterious
> "a lot" is two words
> assignments is spelled wrong
> "of AN assignment" -or- "of assignments"
> Don't switch between "I" and "you"
> "Second" is not a good transition word for a list that is not sequenced by time
> "Another big difference..." would work
> I already started sequencing according to your realizations, so I will stick to that
The next big shock came when I realized that the high school teachers were not as supportive as those in my middle school. They don't give us much time to complete our assignments, and they don't check up on our progress or keep after us to finish.
THEY WILL JUST GIVE YOU zero OR A LOW MARK IF YOU HAND IT IN LATE. bUT IN MIDDLE SCHOOL THEY REMIND YOU AND GIVE YOU EXTRA TIME IF YOU NEED IT.
In my middle school, the teachers gave us extra time if we needed it; but in high school, if we hand out work in late they just give us bad grades.
iN MY MIDDLE SCHOOL THEY MADE US REDO IT TO GET A BETTER MARK. IN MIDDLE SCHOOL IF YOU DON'T DO YOUR WORK AT ALL OR DISRESPECT THE TEACHERS YOU GO TO THE OFFICE SAME AS IN HIGH SCHOOL.
tHE LAST THING I FIND DIFFERENT IS MAKING NEW FRIENDS.
> "Last" is a poor transition word for this list
But the biggest difference I found when I went to high school was in my social life.
ITS HARDER BECAUSE I KNOW NOBODY HERE AND AM A SHY PERSON WHEREAS IN MIDDLE SCHOOL ITS EASIER BECAUSE EVERYONE IS FRIENDLY THERE, EVERONE WANTS TO BE FRIENDS WITH DIFFERENT PEOPLE.
ITS MUCH LESS PEOPLE TO SEE COMPARED TO HIGH SCHOOL.
My middle school had fewer students, so we were more inclined to be friendly with everyone. But in high school, I'm having a hard time making new friends. I don't know anyone here, and I'm too shy to strike up conversations with strangers.
I've already learned to find my way around, and I'm getting used to the higher expectations of the teachers. But I still wish I had a couple of friends.
