Reflective Essay

Reflective Essay

Prior to my first semester at Lone Star College, I was nervous that I was possibly taking
too big of a step by starting college two years earlier than my peers. I was worried that there
would be too much work to handle, or I would not be able to manage my time appropriately. I
suffered from constantly second guessing my academic abilities despite my already proven
school record or despite what other people believed about me. I realized these feelings were
common with many students entering college. I am happy and relieved to say that this semester
has completely changed my perspective and my self-confidence and allowed me to gain
knowledge and skills that will strengthen my abilities and allow me to thrive academically and
personally. I have grown more than I would have thought with the help of Professor Filoteo’s
EDUC Honors 1300 course.

During her course, I have learned the importance of time management as well as how to
identify and distinguish the various structural components of a scholarly article, and how to
follow a methodical approach to construct my own research paper. I have been able to apply
these skills as I was learning them to my English Honors research paper.

The EDUCH course has made me a more effective Honors College student by enabling
me to use the time management experience and project milestone approach learned in the class to
plan and complete my first college research paper (also in an Honors course). Additionally,
understanding the difference between a scholarly article and a non-scholarly article as well as
how to distinguish the critical elements of a scholarly article was instrumental in helping me
build a research paper with my own independent thought supported with relevant citations from

works related to my thesis topic. I now have the confidence and skills to carry me forward
through the rest of my academic studies.

Generally speaking, the EDUCH course taught by Professor Filoteo was extremely
valuable to me and just about perfect. However, if I were to pick one small thing to add to the
course, I think this course could be improved by incorporating more opportunities throughout the
semester to present work in front of the class. This would give the students useful experience
with public speaking and would be great practice for honors students who will need to present at
Honors Day.
