When you are a senior looking toward college, you'll need recommendations. When is a good time to give your teacher your recommendation paper?Wait, let me rephrase this. When is it not a good time to give your teacher your recommendation paper?
Never, under any circumstance, ask a teacher for something that has to be finished that night.
Ask your teacher if he will give you a recommendation, and then let him know he has a lot of time. This will also give your teacher time to see your behavior in the class.
Don't blow It, hot rod!
A lot of seniors have cars. This is a real privilege but you really don't want to test your parents' rules just because you have a car. For example, you still want to get home at a decent hour.
Be careful how you drive and don't get caught up in the thrill of owning a car or the consequences could be horrible!In fact, having a part-time job would be great if you can fit it in and still have time to keep your grades up. You can save some money for college or possibly help pay for insurance. Some insurance policies even give a discount to honor roll students.
A lot of seniors have jobs. Even though a paycheck is great, if you're too tired to stay awake in school or your grades drop, it's not a good tradeoff.
