When seeing my family or friends they always ask, “What are you doing with your life now?” I tell them that I attend Trenholm State College for a degree in Computer Information Systems. There are many things in my life that I am proud, but being back in school is number one. There are many reasons why I went back to school to further my education: first is to be an inspiration to my family, second is to have a better life, the last is to better myself and be able to provide for family by giving them the things that ii never had. When I get ready for school I always feel inspired and know that I am making the right decision. I want to be an inspiration to my younger family members to continue their education after high school.
Not only am I in college now but I plan on earning two degrees. The opportunity to be able to do what I love everyday can only be achieved through education. I want to advance my life and help out others at the same time. I believe people learn just how important education is in different ways. It took me a six year break from college to understand that not only did I need an education to advance further in life but I also craved the learning experience.
But everyone... ... middle of paper ... ...d me different things that she has done in her classroom. Professor Grossman has showed me how to act in different situations and also how to encourage children’s learning. Because of that one teacher I will also be a role model to my students and colleagues. That’s why a college education is important to me. I will be able to make my family proud and show my children that I have a college degree.
Even doe you have your life well planned you never know how is going to end up. That is why, never mind which way I decide to go for life that I will always desire to have all the people around me and me happy. Each year at university I reconsider how I will like my life to be. Each year I am more conscious of putting effort on my courses, having good grades and doing internships where I can take the most of it. All the previous aspects mentioned are the ones that the majority of parents would expect from their children to do at University.
Student M will continue to attend mentoring program as well as continue seeking educational support. Joisy- Student J has been attending the mentoring program consistently this month; she has also been seeking science tutoring during her lunch period in hopes of increasing her overall grade point average. Student J has been accepted into the high school of her choice, Bronx International High School, which is a school that specifically targets the English as a New Language population. She is also pleased as her sister is currently in that school and will be able to guide her in her experiences there. After speaking with Mr. Batista I got the feeling that he thought having both of his daughters in the same school was beneficial, as they would serve as support systems for one other.
Through out my high school years they always told me that I needed to go to college so I wouldn’t have to go through what they did. At first I was hard headed to listen to them but after talking to other family members about their college experiences and what it did for them I started to understand the
“A good education is a foundation for a better future.” ~ Elizabeth Warren. The reasoning behind why I want to go to college is to better my future. I am considered one of the first generation in my family to go to college, putting a lot of meaning behind why I believe I should go on to a different path. From a very young age I have always held high expectations of myself, even of the numerous changes in careers I had obtained an interest in. I have always envisioned myself going to college because I certainly value education.
Many will take a gap year to learn new things through personal experience and not in an academic setting. When students graduate high school, they should consider choosing to go to college right away instead of waiting around doing nothing to help get an education for their future. Over the years the student decided to take off, their learning process will not be the same. Everything that they had learned in high school may start to be forgotten. Trying to relearn all of that will be harder because these students have not seen the material in a while and will have to relearn it all again.
Lastly, student should go to college because it sets a good example to their children and kids and they can start a tradition. According to American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, children look up to many role models but their parent and caregiver are the most important one. If they see that their parents are successful college graduates with higher degrees, they will most likely want to attend college as well. It is up to the parent to set a good example to their children.
The pain and agony of knowing that I might not be prepared for college classes is a weight I have bore on my shoulders. One of my goals has always been to lift the stress of college classes off my back and have the assurance that I am ready for the challenges that are ahead of me. Since day one of high school, being engaged while learning has been my biggest desire so that I am well prepared for the next step in life: college. Dual Enrollment English was exactly what I needed to be well prepared for college. All of my high school career, I had never known what it actually meant to do well and be ¨successful.¨ An abstract idea occurred to me, in room 201, as I was sitting in the front row of my Dual Enrollment English 111 class; this idea
