My Ideal Home

...My ideal house |   | My ideal house would cost a great many thousands of dollars and therefore, even if I am very successful in life, I do not suppose that I shall possess it for a very long time. However there is no harm in dreaming, especially if the dream provides the driving force to turn fantasy into fact.As I live in Singapore, i would like my ideal house to be situated either on one of the residential estates, right outside the bustle of the city center, or on one of the coast roads so that the cool breezes from the ever beautiful China sea could waft through my windows. Wherever my house was, it would stand in it sown grounds so that I would not, on any side, be over-looked by neighbors. The gardens, with which it would be surrounded would be very beautiful, full of colorful tropical flowers; orchids and canna lilies and with many glowing flowering shrubs such as bougainvillaea and frangipani. There would be tall leafy trees for shade and underneath them, my private swimming bath would be built, where we could relax and swim in the heat of the day. there would be pleasant paths winding through the green grass and comfortable seats where my family and I could rest, when the day's toil was over.The house itself would be built of white stone which is both cool and weather-proof. It would be on two storeys, because I like the habit of sleeping upstairs. It would embody features from both the Eastern and Western worlds. In front of it, I would have a large path with......

My Ideal Career

...My Ideal Career My ideal career lies in the law field. I have not decided on one particular law career yet because I do not yet know enough about the different types of law, but the ones that I think do sound interesting are mediation, family law, and paralegal. A paralegal can work in any area of the law. They can work in family law, criminal law, etc, and also in the mediation field. What made you interested in the law in the first place? I think mediation sounds interesting because a mediator helps people settle their disputes outside the court room in a peaceful way. Mediators need to have excellent reasoning, problem-solving, and peace-making abilities (The Princeton Review, 2012). This appeals to me because I am more of a peaceful person and do not really like conflict or arguing, though I can stand my ground if I need to. According to the Princeton Review, a good mediator is honest, neutral, encouraging, listens well, and has excellent communication skills (The Princeton Review, 2012). I have all of these skills, especially the honest part, down well. In fact, my dad is always telling me I am too honest and I could never get away with doing anything wrong when I was little because I would always give myself away. hahaha Family law is interesting because I like the idea of helping families through the hard parts of life. Family court lawyers handle divorce, guardianship, prenuptial agreements, adoptions, parental rights, custody cases, and the financial and......

My First Day at School

...My First Day at School After a patience of six years to become the known phenomenon as a student, I suddenly felt nervousness scatter my entire body. I was lost in my own thoughts and there were nowhere to escape. The excitement and enthusiasm that had been grown since last year where my parents told me the very unknowing thing school disappeared. I didn’t want that the school should be replaced by the comfortable kindergarten with the safely settings where my friends were. I became afraid of the unconscious, afraid of the strange and I began crying. I wanted that my father immediately turned the car and drove back home, but it was too late. We were only few metres from the school. My parents told me that it would be great and that I would meet new people, and get new friends to know. I would no longer be a little boy, but instead a big boy that went to school with own schoolbag with books in it. I knew that all the things my parents told me were just for to get me more comfortable in the situation. Actually it helped especially the last thing they told me and therefore I saw a ray of hope even though the circumstances. Was it so terrible as I predicted? Maybe it was just me who was too exaggerated. I was dressed in my finest clothes and my hair was weird done with help by some sticky trash, fashionable my mother told me. N. Zahle’s School was the name of the school where I began and spent my next ten years. It was a school of good reputation where my sister......

My Ideal Career

...My Ideal Career: Becoming a Lawyer John Shand LS100 Kaplan University Professor Anderson January 6, 2014 My Ideal Career: Becoming a Lawyer My career goal has recently changed to becoming a lawyer. I’m mainly aiming for criminal lawyer and eventually have my own law firm. What makes becoming a lawyer so attractive to me is simply the fact that I can make a difference in someone’s life or simply make someone feel safer by knowing their assailant is behind bars. There are two important factors that got me interested in law the first was when I joined the Marine Corps, was fascinated by military law and I wanted to joined in that field. I didn’t get that job but I was still able to learn part of the legal system. The second factor that pushed and inspired me more to be a lawyer was after a family member was taken advantage of when I was sixteen, I realized that I wanted to make sure that no one has any chance to put anyone through what they went through or at least do my best to prevent it. I’d like to start at a small firm on an internship once I have my bachelor’s degree so I can gain experience and more knowledge as well as get comfortable with the work environment. While working at the small firm I’ll continue my schooling to get my master’s degree. While going to school to obtain my master’s degree, I will be gaining more knowledge and experience from my job. I hope to move up in the firm and slowly branch to a bigger firm once I have enough experience. In......

Ideal School

...If I were allowed to the opportunity to design my own school, and resources were not a question, there are many different aspects I would implement into said school. First and foremost, I would make sure school was available and mandatory to all children, very much like it is today. Education is a critical part of developing as an individual; therefore I would make sure each child has the means to attend school. I would also address the issue of teachers. I feel as if this is one of the most difficult aspects of school to monitor, due to the resources available. Many teachers today are not well equipped and lack the desire and passion to efficiently teach. If I could create my ideal school, I would accept only teachers with sufficient knowledge and a joy for teaching. This would create classrooms with a positive experience and better instruction, rather than ones filled with frustration. The arts would be a prominent feature of my ideal school as well. Often these days, arts programs are being drastically cut, which in turn is sapping the creativity from our students. Because I realize the importance of the arts in schools, I would require that each student enroll in at least one fine arts course. The most important aspect of my ideal school would be Special Education. I would make sure that all types of special education were available. Recently I have learned about the many different kinds of disabilities that children are facing, as well as the vast array of......

My Philosophy of Classroom Management

...Renowned American Educators Evertson and Weinstein (2006) define classroom management as “the actions teachers take to create an environment that supports and facilitates both academic and social emotional learning.” This simple means that classroom management is a set of rules, words, and deeds that you, the classroom teacher, use to keep your classroom running smoothly so that you and your students can work, teach, and learn safely and efficiently. I will first take into consideration the physical environment of my classroom. Since my students spend most of their time in the classroom, I have to make sure that they are in an environment where they are comfortable and safe. As a class we will come up with ideas and suggestion as to how we would like our classroom to look and be. According to Charles and Senter (2011), there are six facets of the physical environment of a classroom which teachers have to consider in providing a pleasant place for learning. These include floor space, wall space, shelf space, cupboard space, countertop space and closet space. By utilizing the limited space provided to us in our schools today, I will be able to have proper control over how I organised the set up of my classroom. I will design my classroom seating arrangements so that it can have an impact on the students also. I can remember being in standard four, the seating arrangement in the class were placed horizontally causing us to break out heads to see on the blackboard. This often......

My High School Life

...A belief that I have come to hold after starting high school is that private schools fall short of the most important benefits that public schools have to offer. I have learned this through my own personal experience of going to a catholic grammar school for nine years, and then transitioning to the public high school that I currently attend. Of course, the main purpose of going to school is to gain a good education that will help you be successful in the future. This belief I do hold true; both private and public schools grant this opportunity. But public schools and private schools each grant an entirely different social experience, and the social experience, in my opinion, is much more valuable than the academic experience. Along with gaining an education, part of being successful in life is learning how to interact and form relationships with people who are different from you. In grammar school, the majority of the people I met were white, Catholic, and of the same learning ability. Every day at school, students were expected to wear uniform clothes, uniform hair styles, and learn at a uniform pace. There were no accommodations for people with slower learning paces; everyone was expected to keep up. Growing up, this is how I expected all schools were like. For nine years I was almost blinded to the fact that people of different religion and learning pace, even physical appearance, even existed in the real world. But the fact is there are more types of people than......

My Ideal Person

...2014 WR-8 My Ideal Person Some people were born in a rich and happy family, but some other were born in a poor and unhappy family. For me, my parents are the most important people in the world. They did not give me birth, but they also provide me the knowledge and many other. But a person who always help and support me is my father.       My father is a person who is intelligent in the family. He is a good leader and active person. He controls all members in the family very well. He is a strong and serious person. If he want to do something, he tried his best to do it untitled he succeeds. My father always care about me because when I go to school or enjoy my friend's party ,he always tells me not to come back too late and be careful with driving. He is a person who is honest and reliable. I remember when I was studying grade 12, he had promise to buy me a new motorbike if I passed pass the final exams and got grade A or B. After I passed and grade B, he bought me a new motor bike .I was really happy that he respect his promise. He is a supportive person too. For example, when I have some problems about my works or my friends, he always give me words of wisdom and good advice. He always support and make me happy whenever I met problems, or I'm upset because of something. However my father is also a person doesn't has all kind of good behaviors too. When he drunk he like too much and finds some problem to blame me and my brother. After all, he is my father and I......

My School

...My school is different from other schools and I love my school. I am penning down my thoughts on what makes my school different…….. Can you think of the place, where one meets children from different backgrounds, temperaments, some mischievous, some bright, some really cute. The challenge of discovering for yourself the magic of science in the laboratories, learning the skill of programming, making robots dancing to your tune in the computer laboratory, makes you feel like a magician. Could there be a better fairy land than a school which makes it possible for us to create all this? cool, where one makes friends, one plays, enjoys, learns and grows. Such a place, my friends, can only be a school! Imagine how dull our lives would be if there were no schools. The open spacious grounds to run and play, the world of books, where one lives in the characters described in them, the experience of living a life with different characters in novels. Losing oneself in them, visiting different cities, countries, reliving the past, the present and the future, as visualized by the writer, gives a completely different dimension to one’s life. Could it be possible had it not been for the school library? My school, which is situated in the heart of Hyderabad, is the place which I have described above. I love my school; it is like the blood which flows in my veins, I cannot live without it. I am what I am because of this wonderful part of my life.My school is the temple of learning which I......

Ideal School Essay, Sociology

...Assess Features of an Ideal School (50 marks) In my opinion, the purpose of education is too teach students specific skills to students that would give them specific skills to help them in the future and continue to benefit them in later life. Education should be beneficial to the individual and that should be seen as most important, then this should automatically lead to it benefiting society completely. If every individual was being separately catered to in education where they are excelling well then this would create a problem free system. I think Marxists view schools as a control mechanism that is only beneficial to the capitalists. Whereas, functionalists view it as a teaching mechanism which ensure a consensus within society. Feminists view education and the education system as patriarchal and only really beneficial for men. My ideal school may not be appropriate for all individuals as not everyone is not guaranteed success in later life by being taught the skills we teach. I think the purpose of schools and education in general is to prepare a student for the next stage in their life. Education should be there to help you become the best possible person in the future. You should be prepared for important things in the future such as voting, money handling, bill paying, money managed meant and also things like how to live in a recession and how to deal with the stress of living in a recession etc. I think that this would ensure an ideal school as these are the......

An Ideal Classroom in an Ideal School

...Hayden_Ang_92:92 7/10/08 16:03 Page 1 Fundamentals International Institute for Educational Planning International schools: growth and influence The booklet Recent years have seen an unprecedented growth in the number of international schools worldwide. Although these schools were initially set up to educate the children of globally-mobile expatriate professionals, ‘host country’ families now increasingly consider international school education as an alternative to the national system in which they lack confidence, and/or as a means of providing a competitive edge for their children in education and labour market terms. In an increasingly globalized world, ‘international-mindedness’, concern for world peace, and the need for intercultural understanding has led to the inclusion of an ‘ideological’ dimension in the mission statements of many such schools. M. Hayden and J. Thompson This booklet provides an insight to the origins and characteristics of international schools, curriculum and assessment, students and teaching staff, and the management, leadership and governance of these schools. The booklet also discusses how international schools (usually private and feepaying) might develop in the future against a backdrop of growing forces of globalization and other international influences. In all cases, attention is drawn to the implications of the issues discussed for both policy-makers and planners in national and......

My First Day at School

...My mother accompanied me to school on the first day. Other parents accompanied their children as well. We all waited in front of the school office. Soon a teacher came and led us to some classrooms. There we were put into four separate classes. This was when some children began to cry as the parents were not allowed into the classrooms. I did not cry because I had been to kindergarten before. Actually my mother went home soon after for she knew I would be all right. It was an enjoyable time for me as I got to know my new classmates. The teacher was very busy writing down our particulars so we had plenty of time to ourselves. Meantime some children continued to sob while their parents looked in anxiously through the windows. Soon recess came. Some of us headed for the tuck-shop while the rest headed for their parents. I bought a drink with the money my mother gave me. Getting to know my new friends had made me thirsty. After recess we went back to out classroom and my new friends and I managed to coax two boys to stop crying. In fact, soon we were laughing and playing together. Once in a while the teacher had to tell us to keep quiet as we were making too much noise. Still some parents looked in anxiously through the windows. Finally the bell rang for us to go home. Some of us were very relieved to be reunited with our parents. I too was glad to see my mother waiting for me at the school gate. I had made many friends. It had been a wonderful first......
