It is sometimes difficult for a graduating high school student to predict what type of training or education is going to be appropriate after high school. What should I do? Should I go to college or a training school? What will I be good at? What should I major in? These are typical questions of high school students nearing graduation or newly graduated.
Choosing a college major or training area that proves not to be satisfactory wastes tuition costs, and time invested in acquiring knowledge and skills you may never want to use in your career.
Deciding not to pursue higher education (because you don't know what you want to do) can also be a costly mistake if you pass up scholarship opportunities to attend a post-secondary school soon after graduation.

Philosophy of Teaching Statement
As a marketing communicator, I am compelled not only to bomb the barriers of communication but to bring about the best in critical thinking. Such are the elements of life that subjugate what teaching means to me. Some students will be born with it, some might have to work hard for it, but the necessity lies in keeping them up to date to where the world is headed.
Having to grow as an educator is toencompass everyday situations to integrate the fundamentals of effective language learning. An individual from morning till evening is bombarded with hundreds of media messages, spanning from banner ads, traditional newspapers, magazines, journals, to online ads, and E-news. They all boil down to the language they have been conveyed, which is none other than English. This highlights the need for studentsto learn the language through all genres of life that surround us every second of the day.
Students have the tendency to pick and learn the attributes of character and body language to a certain degree from the teacher. Thus, presentation and the impact that a teacher levies onto the students is of criticalimportance. Hence, the ideology of conceptual learning enables the students with substance worth to share.
Incorporating innovative methodologies rivets the acumen and the acuity potential for the student, which can be taughtinnumerousways. With the art of verbal and non-verbal communication I practice establishing rapport in my classes, as a result the level of interaction aids the student to converse, converge, and conquer the language learning process.
Unfortunately, there isn’t any course that offers creative thinking. It limits an individual within the parameters of the society or culture. However, the strength of a mind can capacitate enormous information which can be retained by affective and emotional components. The student requires the perfect balance that needs to be placed at both ends of the fulcrum; gravity of learning to the gravity of judgment. My prime objective is to incorporate perspective in order to prepare themselves for the world outside those doors.

Teacher Comments on Report Cards
Report cards provide parents with essential information concerning their child’s progress in school. Various formats are used including letter grades, numbers, checklists and teacher comments that indicate how a child is performing in different areas. For each report card period, teachers usually write descriptive comments for every student. These written remarks elaborate on the student’s strengths, and frequently offer ways the child could improve his or her academic work and/or classroom behavior.
Writing unique and meaningful report card comments takes effort. If only negative statements are written, the parent may feel overwhelmed and thus be unable to help their child. Examples of definitive words that should be avoided are:
• the child will never;
• the child will not;
• the child cannot; and
• the child will always.
Parents are more willing to cooperate if a comment concerning a child’s weakness follows a positive one. So it is more productive to state a student’s strength first, then follow it with your concern – but make sure that is written in a constructive way. For example, you could write, “Bill excels in science,” and then add, “He needs more opportunities to develop his friendship skills.” Or, write something like, “Leslie is friendly and well-liked,” and add, “She would benefit from practicing her reading fluency and comprehension skills.” Teachers need to choose their words carefully since the report card is part of the child’s permanent record.
