Alicia Campos English 1301 September 11, 2011 Working and keeping up my grades. Many students take on the responsibility to work either in a full time or part time position working between forty hours to twenty-five hours per week and still maintaining their GPA in school. They continue to work hard at school and be active in school activities. How can such a young individual be so responsible in holding at job and attending school? Many have the desire to be independent and to be a productive individual in society.
They have place goals for themselves and hope that they will be capable to complete their goals. Their desire to have an employment and to provide for themselves gives them a since of maturity. As young individuals they accept their responsibilities to go find a job occupation. They are showing us that they can continue their education and maintain a job. Students who have chosen to be employed do have a sense of knowing how to regulate their schedules for work, school and other extra school functions.
Working and going to school can be the highlight of many students who need to have an occupation to help their families survive in these economic times. And so they prefer to continue their education and work so that when graduation approaches in a few years looking for employment would not be hard for them. They would have had the experience of having an employment. It is not easy to work and go to school. Keeping up with school as you see it becomes harder. School work becomes harder and homework doesn’t disappear and teachers do not give extra time just because you work.
Each individual student is still responsible for turning in their assignments on time. As the student continue to work they find themselves staying up late, doing homework during their lunch breaks or rushing home after school to do homework before going to work, they seem to always know how to manage their work load and school load. Many students who don’t hold a job are home studying or finishing homework. But those students who have put themselves in the employment world, will be going home to study and start on homework and preparing for the next day of school. Working student tend to have a ense of pride in them for the fact that they hold a job and are still maintaining their GPA in order to graduate and hope to get scholarship for school. Working and keep up my grades How many students do you know that are working and attending high school? Many of us really cannot share that information. Because we really are not informed unless a student reveals that information to his or her teacher. Many students do take on the responsibility of a job. Just to have money, or to help their families in these economic hard times. As we see how the students become responsible in working.
It is also important for them to maintain their GPA and to graduate. Many students can juggle work and school without any problems. These students have found that organization and priority listing are helpful. As students become more adaptable to a schedule that works for them. It helps when the schedule can be revised if needed to their job schedule. Employers are willing to help by giving time off for test, some school activities. Most employers understand the importance of students needing time to finish a project, studying for test or other responsibilities of school.
Teacher can understand student that have job. So when high school student take that road it not an easy road to juggle work and school. Many students do find it hard to adjust and some may even quit because their school work is failing or it wasn’t important for them to have an occupation. Many parents will allow their children to work but school comes first. High school student will always have a need to find employment but some will not be able to survive the work and school syndrome.
