  • My Honor Student Friends
    980 words
    Small-minded administrators and authority figures like to speak in clicks. All my life I heard the same trite line: " You can tell a lot about a person by the friends they keep". The black sheep of the honors program, I hung out with the so-called " losers". During my freshman year, not a day went by when a teacher or family member did not deride my closest friends and warn me that by hanging out with " bad seeds" I would fall into a downward spiral, never graduate college, and have a miserable ...

And for every individual whom consumes his or herself with being a student, that person also is a teacher. Too often the definition of teaching gets associated with ...

  • Police Officer And My Best Friend
    1,273 words
    School Violence I started writing this essay originally with a different view in mind. But when I went back to read it, it simply wasn't what I wanted to say. My mother suggested I wait a few days and come back to it but I was itching too much to get this off my chest. I became restless and started surfing the web and went to my favorite authors website. Her name is Silver Raven Wolf (web) and read her article about when she was in Jr. High. That's when I realized the difference, hers had emotio...
