  • Notes In High School
    414 words
    Before I began my collegiate career, my parents or other authoritative figures basically gave me everything that was crucial to my upbringing. Life seemed simple because all the information I needed in order to advance was spoon fed to me. My parents were always there to guide me through life and correct me whenever I made mistakes. In school, teachers and mentors would instill in me study skills and motivate me to pursue a successful lifestyle. However, as I entered into Drexel University, real...
  • Parents In Their Children's Education
    690 words
    As we are introduced to the four key beliefs that form the framework for the MIT program here at City University, (Preparation, Practice, People, and Professionalism) I have chosen to focus first on People, since people are at the core of what we are seeking to become. Obviously there are areas of overlap in the four; like professionalism is going to include preparation, but people are at the heart of it; teachers, parents, children, and administrators working together for the common goal of edu...

  • Children Morals
    527 words
    Who's to Blame One night, a few years ago, I was watching television with two of my younger brothers. As I flipped through the stations I could not help but notice that on every channel was an interview of our President, Bill Clinton. The discussion was about President Clinton's involvement with another women. They questioned him if he had "oral sex" or "committed adultery" with Monica Lewinsky, a White House intern. Neither of my brothers commented at the time on what they saw or heard but I ju...
  • Teacher's Classroom
    539 words
    Making Everyone Happy We all have our own preconceived mindsets of how our educational surroundings should be arranged and how a perfect classroom should be. While preparing for the ultimate classroom we should keep in mind the following conditions. These conditions should involve input from teachers and students alike, while also keeping in mind parent's and school faculty's needs. To a teacher, a perfect classroom would involve many things. Most importantly a teacher would like to have eager s...
  • Parents
    352 words
    Throughout my life, I have been lucky enough to have a very good relationship with my parents. They have supported me, given me necessary criticism, and taught me a great deal about how to live my life. Parents can be very important teachers in our lives; however, they are not always the best teachers. Parents may be too close to their children emotionally. Sometimes they can only see their children through the eyes of a protector. For example, they may limit a child's freedom in the name of saf...
  • What Teachers Hate About Parents
    264 words
    In the article, "What Teachers Hate about Parents", Nancy Gibbs states, "But if parents are searching for the perfect teacher, teachers are looking for the ideal parent, a partner but not a pest, engaged but not obsessed, with a sense of perspective and patience". I agree with this statement completely. I think parent-teacher partnership is a very big key in the success of children. This article talks about parents wanting their children to have the best of the best, but is it really what is for...
  • Teachers And Law Enforcement
    371 words
    Disrespect When television first emerged, sitcoms like Leave It To Beaver portrayed loving children who would have never dreamed of disobeying someone with authority. But as we flip through the channels today, we see pictures of children screaming at their parents, students hitting teachers, and juveniles running from the law. Despite the fact that these scenarios are seen on television, this kind of behavior is a reality in today's society. Perhaps this because young people have a lack of respe...

  • Limits In Homework

    A University of Michigan study last year found homework increasing overall from 1981 to 1997, with the biggest increase falling on students aged 6 to 8, whose homework load tripled. Piscataway is one of many school districts to ban or severely limit homework across the country.

  • My Long Hair
    729 words
    "Cut your hair, already", some fifth graders said as they pushed me against the hard brick wall. I tried to argue with them, but then one of them punched me in the gut. I fell to the ground crying. I remember feeling so confused, trying to figure out what had I done to them. People started crowding around, to see what was happening. Almost all the kids laughed at me, the older kids laughed because they were mean and the smaller ones laughed to fit in. Luckily, the bell rang and recess was over. ...
