Sara Khan

    The name of the Presenter is Sara. Sara is an underwriter. Well when Sara came in her Presentation it said that she was an Insurance person. When she said that she was an Insurance person I was a little confused. Well she had explained and she said that as an Insurance Person she whelps people with anything that they need help with. Moreover, when she was talking she had said that people get notice by doing bad things.   


        The name of the presenter that I seen was Teniola. Teniola is an Investment Banker. Well she told me about what she does as an Investment Banker. Well, the Presenter Teniola told us that she works a lot of hours. Also, she said that she works up to 100 hours a week when their is only about 164 hours a week .Moreover, she also said that you get to travel around the world and the company pays for the Hotel you are staying in. I liked that she said you get to work with many people. Finally, she said that she is going to stop working as an Investment Banker because its like she does not get enough sleep and she always wanted to be a teacher, so she is going to be a ESL teacher for the summer.

    Using IMOVIE was fun, but at times it is kind of difficult because you have to add pictures and then the pictures take along time to load. Also, when you try to put the music in and it is not the song that does not match and then I have to look for another song all over. Moreover, in my group I have Victor and Jonas. The best part creating the movie with my group is that when we was getting it together we kept on trying and we succeeded. Well me and my group did not show our IMOVIE video to the class because we did not finish, so we are still working on it. Moreover, Jonas, Victor, and me are still working on it and when we finish with it we will show it to the class. 

     The other videos that I saw were interesting. Like Alahagi group they did everything like a movie would do it. To add on, like in the end of the movie they did it just like that. The people that was in the group was Josue, Angel, and Alahagi. Well I think our video is good because we are not finished and when we present it to the class I would like to know what they think about it if they like it or not. Well there was 2 videos that were tie because Alahagi's group was creative and they had people from the school to play the person the character they was doing for IMOVIE. The other group that I liked was Larolyn's group it was funny and creative because at the end the put pictures and they were funny. Also Larolyn's group there was people talking in the background. I don't think they would know because they are not really saying a lot about the book. Basically, what I am trying to say is they are not being very descriptive. 

    I plan to improve on my film by working on it. Also, by making sure it is good and checking it once I finish and keep on checking it until it is great.

Why do I have to think about a Career now?

     Well I am thinking about careers now so when I get to college I would already know what I would want to do.  Also, I am thinking about the careers now so I could already know what would I be studying about. It is important because once I get to university I would know what we need to study about so I could become professionals. I think this project will help me a lot. Moreover, it will be helping me a lot because I am already thinking about what I want to do when I get older. Furthermore, this is helping me a lot because I want to have a better future. I want to be better than my mother. Additionally, I would like to help my family and be better than what they are doing. I already have been thinking about my future. As my future I would like to be a business women,  work in a Company or  Manage money. Finally, I started thinking about my future so I would know what to study and so I could be a better person than my mother in what she has done.

My Reflection-Renzulli

    The type of careers that I like is Managing Money. I am into this career because I manage my mothers money sometimes when she wants me to manage it. Also, I like this topic because it has to do with math because it is with money. Another, topic that I like is work in a Company. I would like to do this because I would like to work in a office. Moreover, I would like to work in a Company because I would like to have an office and do what ever they tell me to do. The last career I would like to do is be a Doctor. I am interested being a Doctor because I would like to help people who ever needs help.

   I was surprised about what I read in my profile. For example, Linda also has specific preferred instructional styles. Learning or instructional styles are the ways students like to learn and the strategies parents and teachers use to help them learn. Linda has very clearly defined learning preferences. Her preferred instructional style is through peer tutoring that happens when a student or friend who knows a good deal about something helps or works with her to really understand the topic or material being studied in school. 

   Somethings that I read about that I already knew was that I wanted to help people like being a Doctor. Also, that I enjoy working in groups and discussing with students about the class work. Finally, starting a business of my own. I already knew that I wanted to do these things.

Monster-Is Steve Harmon innocent or guilty?||May 4th, 2009

Steve Harmon is Innocent.
I feel that Steve Harmon is Innocent because he really did not do anything. In the crime the role that Steve had to do was to see if anyone was in the store like cops or any customers. So basically all he had to do is give them a signal. Well Steve does not know Bobo as much as he knows James King. He knows James King more than Bobo because the only way he knows Bobo was when the Robbery had happened. Why do you think Steve is friends with people like James King and Osvaldo? I think that Steve is friends with people like James King and Osvaldo because he is probably scared of them or he does not have any friends instead of them.

Our friends can influence by trying to get us addicted about what they like. Also, about influencing us in what they like to do, etc. I never been in a situation like this like Steve Harmon. I have not gotten in this situatiion before because I do not hang out with people Steve Harmon does. If I was to do something like Steve Harmon did it won't my friends fault it will be mine for doing what I did. It is important to pick your friends wisely because when you really get to know them you will probably regret from being that person's friend. To me I don't pick my friends wisely. If I want someone to be my friend they are going to be my friend if they want to be friends with me. I am not going to choose who can be my friend or not.I think that she feels that he did something wrong because James King and Bobo are bad influence for him and that why he is in the situation he is in now.
