"A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank...but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child.” –Forest Witcraft (Professor of Denison University and Boy Scout administrator) There are not many people that are able to say this. However, the profession of being an elementary school teacher gives the teacher the satisfaction of being able to have one of the most emotionally rewarding jobs in the world. Elementary school teachers guide children through a vital point in their lives. They help set the young students' foundations to prepare them for their future schooling in junior and senior high. Although being an elementary school teacher pays little and can be tiring or stressful, this career is still worth pursuing because teachers touch the lives of children.

With expanding the social and cognitive capacities of the students the teachers are able to incorporate into their lessons about learning about life lessons and what the children will need to learn to survive in today?s world. With parental involvement the parents are able to continue the education at opportunities that teachers may never have with the students. Alyssa Gonzalez-DeHass (2005) went to state that there is a huge benefit from the relationship between parental involvement and the many motivational constructs, which include school engagement, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, perceived competence, perceived control, self-regulation, mastery goal orientation, and the motivation to read. When parents set a good role model for their children they are more likely to achieve the motivational constructs that are listed above. As educators in the 21st century, it is very easy to look at the state of schools in the present and to compare then with schools from twenty years ago.
I would never had made it to college if I gave up on education because my senior year I felt really lazy and I didn’t know what to... ... middle of paper ... ...tion is sometimes taken for granted because I feel like I don’t need to learn a certain subject in college but yet I need it to involve in the real world when getting a job. To me education is what prepares me for a career job the people who are hiring looked for the ones that are open minded and can easily work with their surroundings. Education is important in many ways it helps us become better people to be able to show academic skills learn throughout many years of school. I feel that when I’m looking for internships people look for my background and how experienced I am when it comes to programming. I think if I overachieve my education in computer science I could be able to be successful like Reyna Grande on how she was able to pursue her dream career as a writer.
