When May comes for most kids only one thing is on their mind. Summer break! As they finish up their school the kids prepare for long lazy afternoons, swimming, and just being kids. They don’t need to worry about a paper that needs to be done or math homework! Instead they can just sit back and relax. I like many other kids however think of experience and worthwhile experiences when it comes to my summer break. While I certainly don’t want to leave out relaxing besides the beach, a summer break can give me experiences I couldn’t otherwise have such as practicing a new skill. My goals for the summer are to learn something that I don’t have time to learn during the school year, relax, and most importantly to just have fun.

When some kids think about their summer break they think of opportunity. They want to try something they haven’t tried before. Such as learning a new sport, or taking up a musical instrument. I would like to take up something new and wish to learn, practice, and feel confident in a skill of some sorts before my summer ends. My decision isn’t clear of what to learn but that leaves tons of experiences out there for me to choose from.

Learning a new skill during my summer break is a goal of mine but its opposite is also an aspiration of mine, and that is to just relax. Having a break from school work gives me more of an opportunity to just lie back and enjoy having nothing to do. Relaxing the whole summer away may not be smart, but relaxing to enjoy the extra hours of free time defiantly is nice!
The last of my summer goals is the most important one, and that is to just have a good time. Balance is key to enjoying summer. If I were to sit on my couch throughout the summer boredom will quickly seep in and that’s never fun or memorable. Also if I were to work during the whole summer and have no time for myself then I’ll be burnt out just when school starts back up and I need my energy the most. Balancing these two things will make me have a very fun, memorable, and exciting summer without stress!

Educational Goals and Philosophy Essay - Educational Goals and Philosophy As a child, playing “school” occupied most of my time. My younger sister and I taught a bedroom full of stuffed animals and filled in imaginary names in our old school books. From the bad bears and loud bunnies to the good puppies and smart kittens, each stuffed animal possessed his or her own personality. The thought of teaching never entered into my mind when I was asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Uncertain about the career field that I desired to pursue, my decisions depended upon the topics that held my interest at the time....   [tags: Education Teaching Teachers Essays] 1275 words

Goals in Computer Programming Essay - The realization that computer programming was not the sole property of engineers at Microsoft came as a tremendous shock. As a rising seventh grader, I was required to buy a TI-83+. On the first day of class, as the teacher taught how to use the calculators for arithmetic and graphing, a rumor reached me that another student had a game on his calculator. A game. I wondered in disbelief, how does that even work. I knew that calculators were for adding, subtracting and complicated math problems. They were definitely not for games....   [tags: Personal Ambition] 500 words

Essay about Statement of Educational Goals and Philosophy - Statement of Educational Goals and Philosophy I can still remember coming home from school after an exciting day in the first grade. I would go straight to my room, line all of my dolls up in the floor, and “teach” them everything I had learned earlier that day. But of course, not every child who pretends to be a teacher in his or her early years actually becomes a teacher. So although I enjoyed “teaching,” I never really considered it as a choice for my life-long career. But the summer after ninth grade made me rethink my options....   [tags: My Philosophy of Education] 693 words

Educational Goals and Philosophy Essay - Educational Goals and Philosophy It was the last day of school. My daughter's 3rd grade class had just chosen to have me read to them instead of playing a game. As I explained that we wouldn't be able to finish the rest of the chapter book I had begun several weeks before, I suggested "You can check it out at the library and finish it over the summer". One little girl looked up at me in disappointment and said, "but it wouldn't be the same as hearing you read". My heart melted and the final reason was added to my ongoing mental list of why I should begin to pursue a teaching degree at the age of 35....   [tags: Teaching Learning School Essays] 863 words

Summer is the favorite season for almost all kids because of opportunity, relaxation, and the shear enjoyment of long warm days. Having three months away from school work gives kids a break and a chance to gain something they otherwise couldn’t have if school was all twelve months of the year. I hope my summer will turn out to be the best ever and I want to try my best to make sure that happens for me.
