Why My Education Is Important To Me

My education has shaped me to be who I am today; I use the power of my knowledge everyday. Like others, I have made many mistakes and have failed on different assignments. Let’s just say, i’ve been there and done that. I look at school and say I hate it, but I can also say I love it at the same time. I hate the work, but I love the relieving outcome.

Today, I am glad to be where I am in my educational standpoint and that is all thanks to you. You are a very influential person to me when it comes to education. Without you, I don 't think I would be very literate in English or efficient in Math. You always knew what you were doing when it came to education, you were a great teacher to me and many other students.

We started at the basics, where everything was hard to learn at a young age. You made do so many educational practices that I used to call “punishment.” Educational things like timed reading and multiplication tables over and over again. Even worse, you tried so hard to fix my hand writing. Take a guess on how my handwriting looks now? Pretty ugly; like a chicken scratched a piece of paper with ink on their foot. My learning experience in elementary school was ignited by you pushing me harder everyday to read, write, and practice my math; I may have not appreciated it then but I sure do appreciate it today,

As I called it punishment, You and my mom called it “getting ahead.” Getting home after school was the worse from then on. I would get out of the car as slowly as I could to stall time. I would get a drink of water or complain that I was hungry, even though I really wasn’t. It wasn 't that easy though. You would sit at the dinning table waiting for me to come and start, and I knew if I didn 't do it, my mom would probably smack me in the back of the head when she got

    I am going to share a lot of information regarding my education experiences, most of which I am very proud of; although I did have some bumps in the road. One good experience I had was when I had Mr. Cheslik, as my 6th-grade teacher. He knew how to reach me and quickly learned how to keep me motivated. He knew that I lacked patience and but kept me focused in the classroom. The physical…

    My History As A Writer Throughout my lifetime I have come to love and absolutely hate writing. The reasoning of the assignment or topic has a lot to do with my affinity and disgust. Although learning new things, like writing, was something that I loved doing in elementary school, that all changed when it was daily implemented. As an art form I recently come to love writing down my thoughts, ideas, opinions and stories. A struggle for me while attempting to write an essay or report is grammar.…

    I also believe that their strength and motivation will be what gets me through this. Looking back on my life and school now I am thankful for my challenges and all my hard times and bad days because I’ve realized without the struggle and challenge I would not learn.

Mistakes are a part of learning and learning is what I like to do. Two of my favorite quotes are about learning from your mistakes.…

    Ms. Caldwell definitely deserves being teacher of the year. If you ask me why I will say many things, for example, math wasn’t a subject I valued until I had Ms. Caldwell for Algebra 1. She always helped us and made sure she answered the questions we had. She would make my classmates and I go early in the mornings to her office so we could explain what we had done wrong and if we didn’t understand the material she would explain the material in detail and say why the answer is right. Her creaticity in the classroom, for example the exercises, kept all of my class engaged the whole time.…

    When life presents a problem or challenge of any sort to me, I want to solve it. Because life is problematic by nature, sometimes I can overwhelm myself, but I do love what I do. Thus, I have found myself in leadership positions because I devote myself completely and have a knack for taking the lead on projects. Throughout my life, I have started from the bottom of the ladder and worked my way up time and time again. In middle school, I was told that although my performance on a “gifted and talented” test, I had the opportunity to take gifted and talented classes in a pilot program.…

    By now I have improved a lot, but my writing skills are still lacking. I remember the first time Mrs. Conradson assigned an in class writing assignment, I was so nervous and worried because I felt like I will never be as good as my classmates. As expected, I made quite a lot of mistakes. Mrs. Conradson knew that I was still struggling, so she paid more attention to me. She would always encourage me to keep working hard and remind me that practice makes perfect.…
