Portfolio - Future

I feel very bright about the future. My goals for the future is for me and my girlfriend to go to UCLA together or go to NYU. We are still deciding. I want to major in Science Technologies. I plan to get my masters, and hopefully get a great job with in that. I believe that some experiences like form previous schools helped me like with my study habits.  I need to work on keeping my grade up, and make sure that they stay up and don't get to comfortable thinking everyhings okay. My brother, my girlfriend, my foster parents & my friends can help me achieve my goal by being there to support. I believe I can achieve my goals, but I still have my doubts, I just need to stay confident.

End of Year Reflection – Greatest High School Achievement

My greatest High School Achievement for me would be when I got  a 3.5 at Lincoln High School, for my first semester. Our 4th period teacher Mrs. Seckington (homeroom) was passing out our grades, and she said only a few actually did well this semester. I had a lot of problems going on at home, and some of the time I would be late on things, or wouldn't be able to come to school. My last name is Williams so I had to wait last to see if I was one of the few that did good, and when she called my name and I saw her smile and her face light up, I knew that my grades were good. Another reason that was an accomplishment because when I showed my adoptive mother for once in her life she said she was proud, and she didn't hit me. Like that made me feel like I actually did something to make her happy, and make myself happy. This incident hasn't really changed me, because that's the last 3.5 I had, but I know I can get better, I just need that motivation back. There is not really no one I need to make proud of me right now but myself.

Portfolio - Improvement

Over the past 2 years, I don't think that I have improved that much. My skills have always been great for my grade level. I've never really had low grades coming up. So I believe my skills have stayed the same, but myself as a person I believe has changed. Some good, and some bad. Now I'm quick to make sure I'm around the right people, and stay out of things I don't need to be involved in. I stand up for myself more, and I don't let people push me over, and I'm nice to an extent. Myself as a person has improved, but academically, I'm basically still the same.

My Educational Experiences

Due to my educational experiences, I am currently very caught caught up in school and my credits and everything except for 2 classes which can easily be made up. I went to a good elementary school, and an excellent High School. I had a 4.0 through out my middle school, years, and had a 3.1 -3.5 Freshman year. In elementary school and Middle school I was always on the Honor Roll and it made me feel proud that I had good grades, and a lot of people recognized me for it especially at church. This year is not so good, but I am getting caught up and learning at a regular pace. To make sure that I'm successful in High School I will always check to see if my grades are up to par.

End of Year Reflection – Greatest High School Obstacle

My greatest obstacle was coming here to San Pasqual Academy. Coming here was very difficult for me because I had to leave all my old friends, my old school, my old life and drop everything to come here. At San Pasqual they teach very differently from  a regular high school. I was supposed to take A.P. Euro history this year and couldn't take it because they don't offer it. They don't offer a lot of thing. I'm still not use to this kind of atmosphere with going t school with people, and live with them as well. It's hard sometimes to get my grades up, because I can never like study because I live here, and there's so much commotion.. This has changed me, now because it makes me  more stressed then what I used to be.

Personal Changes Blog Paragraph

When I was a freshman I was very dependent with like plenty of friends, and we did everything together like no one was never left out. Me and my best friends went everywhere together, mall, beach, movies. It's like I couldn't do anything by myself. This year I think i'm more independent. This year I only had one best friend, one person I was usually around the whole time. Me and Ronnie were together most of the time but still gave each other space when they needed it. Last year I was more naive and when anyone wanted me to do something I did it, just because I thought it was cool. I never vouched for myself, and would let people push me over even if I knew they were wrong. I would never speak up for myself, I went with the flow. One of my friends named Demarcus treated me however he wanted and I never said anything to him, because I didn't want to lose our friendship. This year as a sophomore I spoke my mind and I let my voice be heard, and didn't let anyone talk to me the way they wanted to.

SPA Policy Blog Paragraph

One policy that I wish I could change at SPA it would be that the house parents couldn't take our electronics away. I believe that if we do have a consenquence, then restriction  should be the only one. Restriction means  that you can't go anywhere. So i'm fine with that. But I need my electronics & it's very important to me. Luckily that hasn't happened to me yet. but I see it happen in other houses & I don't like it.
