My exciting substitute in College Success class...
So, we were supposed to be learning about test taking strategies (This class is 2 hours long) and he starts off good…WITH ATTENDANCE. Soon enough he manages to spell the words “technically” and “answer” wrong and then starts his “lesson plan” about test taking strategies. Now, he does good in the beginning talking about how to effectively read the questions and use the scantron. THEN OUTTA NOWHERE FROM THE BLUE MOON HE STARTS TEACHING US HOW TO WRITE AN ESSAY! At this point 30mins seemed to have passed by and a few students start to leave the classroom. He then starts teaching us sentence structures and how to use punctuation effectively and THEN he starts writing a WHOLE 5 paragraph essay on the white board. At the same time he’s lecturing us on how to write an essay in 60mins when were supposed to be learning about test taking strategies. He then wanders off and starts to talk about PIZZA…PIZZA! And soon enough more students start to leave while he says nothing at all. And after all this nonsense it finally reaches 2 hours and everyone runs out the classroom tripping. I guess he was an english teacher…

Community College Advantages in Global Economies
High School students anticipating graduation worldwide face a dilemma: go to college or not go to college? Students choosing college then must also choose among types of higher education: Associate’s degree or Bachelor’s degree? Should their college be public or private? Local or international? The advantages of community colleges in the current economy, especially for students unsure of their future, include low costs, diversity of coursework, options at graduation, small class sizes, and a smooth transition from high school.Community colleges are always less expensive than baccalaureate-granting institutions. Tuition and fees are inexpensive and colleges are located close to students’ homes, further lowering the relative cost of attendance. Over 75% of community college students work part-time or full-time to defray costs of attendance and save for future university coursework. Community colleges provide university transfer, vocational, technical, and professional update programs and degrees for all qualifying students. Many employers tailor community college programs for immediate jobs upon completion of Associate’s degrees. The diversity of coursework provides undecided students the opportunity to explore their strengths and maximize the value of their investment in post-secondary education. Community college graduates can transfer to universities, get high-paying jobs, or do both. For students who want to attend four-year or baccalaureate-granting institutions, community colleges offer general education core courses required for all college majors in smaller classes, leading to increased student success. The low teacher-to-student ratio of community college classes allows students to get the help they need in courses transferrable to universities. Community college class sizes make students’ transitions from high school to college and from college to university less confusing and overwhelming. In the new global economy, community colleges are the best investment for students and parents working toward future success
STOP ASKING QUESTIONS!!
If my nephew doesn’t stop asking me things one after the other I’m going to give him to this guy….
Speaking of questions, I apparently have one more thing due in the college success class. Everyone was telling me we are doing it in class, but I don’t know. If this teacher remains too fucking critical down to this last day, I am going to fucking rage.
Oh… ITS THE LAST DAY OF THAT CLASS!!
How to Have a Successful Semester: Student Tip #2
Attend every class and work to stay focused in class.
Unless you are really sick, have a hospitalized immediate family member and need to be with them, or have lost a close family member, don’t miss class. Much of life is just being where you are suppose to be when you are suppose to be there. And, life isn’t always entertaining. If you must miss class, find out what you missed from a classmate and make sure to attend the very next class session prepared.
We took Zeus to the vet today [after about an hour just trying to get all those darn fleas off of him] and discussed about his weight loss and such so they decided to do a few tests on him.
Turns out he has Heartworms and Hookworms. That’s no fun at all. Now he’s gotta take this heartworm stuff for 32 weeks in hopes that it will go away soon by the next vet visit. I’m just glad that we managed to get this diagnosed early instead of waiting till the last second. So there dad, if your family says something is wrong with yer dog, get him checked out fast.
Also, I got a call from the college today~ After talking for a good while, it turns out that I proved to be a great example to go to that college and things are off to a good start. That made my day~
I started this blog to find a space where I can share thoughts, insight, and words of inspiration I have experienced during my time as an educator (and student). On a daily basis I work with some of the strongest, most reflective children and young adults in the world. Born and raised in LA, some of these students have endured it all..gangs, abuse, and drug infested neighborhoods that could’ve had the best of them… yet they are in college and achieving such amazing things. Since I started this work, I’ve hoped to find a way to somehow share the endless amounts of blessings that touch my life each day, and now is my chance! I couldn’t be any prouder!
Everything I post on this blog (the lessons I teach and the lessons I learn) will be “education inspired.” Now I have a chance to share the things I am motivated by each and every day. In addition, I hope this blog opens up a door for youth, fellow educators, and like-minded people to dialogue about the things that are affecting everyday life, the socialization of youth, and our education system.
I also encourage my followers to share articles, advice, words of wisdom, and quotable stories so we can pass along the inspiration…and to promote hope that anyone can succeed in this educational pipeline. This blog is dedicated to my students who make working in education so worthwhile. I hope they find inspiration in this blog as I have found inspiration in them.
And Special Thanks to a special student and friend of mine, Michelle S, for being the true light behind this blog.
