I want to study School Psychology because for a very long time I have known that I wanted to build a career around child development. Throughout high school, and undergraduate I focused my work on general psychology, and research until my later years were began to develop my interest in helping adolescence in any way possible.

STATEMENT “I LOVE ENGLISH” Those were the words what I proudly wrote on the board of my classroom on my secondary school graduation day. From the day I learnt my ABCs, my passion for English has always been strong. I used to seek attention from others by constantly trying to prove my skills - it was a way of showing my love for the language. However, as I grew up, others’ approval was no longer the most important thing in the world. It is not about me and just me anymore. Now, loving English means spreading
writing skills. I grow up speaking, reading, and writing Amharic, my native language, in Ethiopia. Even if English classes are given in Ethiopia since it is an international language, it focuses on the grammar part but not on the writing part of the language.
As I get closer and closer to graduation, I begin to see the light at the end of a tunnel of my time here at Manchester Community College. I begin to reflect on all I have learned here on my four-year journey. I realized that I have grown up so much since high school, and growing into the man I have become before you today.

There are so many rewards and benefits to the teaching profession that choosing one reason would be extremely hard if not impossible. Because of my family background and my past teachers I can not think of a better way to spend the rest of my life than being a teacher. I was born into a family of four children with two teachers as my parents. Throughout my younger
When I first encountered Paulo Freire’s work, I was struck with the hypocrisy of my own teaching. I had deluded myself into thinking, to a certain extent, that I was creating a democratic and equal space that was free from the influence of. It was a stark reminder last year when I encountered Richard Shaull’s introduction to Peter Freire’s The Pedagogy of the Oppressed. He writes, “There is no such things as a neutral educational process. Education either functions as an instrument that is used to
When I first signed up for Interpretation of Literature I was expecting an easy “A” general education course. That is certainly not how I would describe my semester. I have learned a lot about literature. I learned that great literature is not easily defined, and that the cannon of greatness is constantly evolving. Throughout the semester as we discussed these so called great works of literature we have constantly been asked how this relates to our own lives. Who knew that Lorranine Hansberry’s
