2017 Future Story Scheduling Reflection


Freedom comes in a variety of forms in my life. Personally, future story freedom means living a life with multiple pathways. Together these pathways make up my freedom. Fittingly, the courses I am taking next year as a junior help extend my pathway options in the future. In a similar pathway vein, I am pursuing my third and fourth courses in the automotive pathway next year. By taking automotive and lighter repair I will be able to pursue industry certification and become a program completer before my senior year. This also extend co-operative education opportunities as well. Choice is good!   




In terms of challenging leadership roles, I am interested in the STLP opportunity through the Media Center and will be working with Mrs. Mattingly and Mrs. Sekulski to ensure I can fit that into my larger schedule. I will also be taking AP English Language, Pre-Calculus, Chemistry, and and U.S. History to round out my schedule. I feel like the teachers we have at TNHS continue to offer me a lot of support and this schedule will be a healthy fit for me. I am excited to continue challenging myself and extending opportunities for freedom in the next year.   

My Schedule: 
AP English Literature 
STLP LEADER 
Automotive Light Repair C & D  (2 Periods)
Chemistry
U.S. History
Pre-Calculus

Class of 2018 Future Story Reflection

Title-> Spring 2017: Sunshine in My Pocket

Class of 2018 Reflection


As a junior in high school I am inspired by so many people in my life. To begin, I am inspired by my father for holding me accountable and ensuring that I show up to get better each day. Also, I am inspired by my teachers that are true professionals. They work hard and provide meaningful opportunities each day at Thomas Nelson High School. These teachers have enriched my life and allowed me to feel more confident as a part of the TNHS community. This growth has also been supported by my CARE & Connect class with Mrs. Ahmadi. We have truly taken CARE of each other and the upperclassmen have made me feel more at home here. 

I am motivated to meet the benchmark in English. On my CERT IA 2 I achieved a 16. I have started to review two questions a day and take notes over the past three weeks. I feel like the videos have helped me significantly improve in the growth process. 

My ACT goal is a 22. In the week ahead I am going to ensure that I review for the English test through watching CERT videos. To this end, I am going to start with the easy questions on CERT and review them. Then I will move onto the medium questions. I always work to get a good night's sleep and this will not change for the ACT. If for some reason I don't meet my goal of a 22 I will be taking it again in June. This is the only way that real growth occurs - persistence. I'm excited to recognize that growth.

Future Story Blog Post Model

For the past four years I have recorded where I think I will be in five years. It is hard to believe that time has arrived. I will be lifting off soon to take my next steps towards my future story but I am not fully sure where I want to go to college! The pressure of choosing a college is something that I would rather not have, but I recognize that with change comes growth and I'm going to have to make the leap one way or another. Fortunately, I have two college visits planned in January.
In five years I plan on opening my own business. It is my dream to help people with their technology and security needs in their homes and businesses. When I look to my progress towards my future story goals, my first step is becoming college ready. I still need to meet my math benchmark. I am so close to being College Ready YETI! I plan on retaking the KYOTE to get this benchmark in the next two weeks. It is important that I do not have to take any remedial classes my first year in college so I don't delay my graduation. I need to make sure I stay after for Future Story Support Hours on Wednesdays for more help with Math.
When I think about transitioning to college and then to open my own business, I worry about not succeeding. I know it is important not to make decisions out of fear. However, I hear all of the horror stories about owning your own business. I know it will be tons of work, but how do I make sure I am not one of the businesses that don't succeed in their first five years? How can I make sure I stay up to day on the latest technology trends to keep my future business on the cutting edge? I think I need to spend my next Operation Exploration day shadowing a small business owner to ask these very questions. I am sure they will have helpful tips that will help ease my fears.
