Also having a job helps me a stronger student, more responsible, and self-dependent. I have learned many things during my experience and I am still learning things like having goals in life to accomplish,not to be a procrastinator, working, social skills, and to have good grades.

    This helps many people identify me as a hardworking and responsible person because people believe that during college it is that time to determine your career, but high school should be the time to help determine your career because I know college is a stressful time and one does not want to spend a lot of time in one major and later change their major. This will prevent people from dropping out of school and spend a lot of money. I believe that I am a responsible person. I am always on top of everything even though some tasks are hard to complete I always find a way to complete it and make sure my job was well done. In Highschool I helped my teachers a lot.…

    Confidence, respect, and time management is what every senior probably learns. But not me, my life lessons are a lot deeper. One thing I learned in high school is that I should always be myself, even if it doesn 't make me the most popular person in the world. “It 's easy to completely change just to impress others, but harder to live with yourself when you don 't like the changes you 've made”, is what I have always said to myself. However, the most important thing I learned in high school was that you can 't change the past, but you can improve the future.…

    This gives me motivation to enjoy every class, since I know that it is another lesson that makes the lives of my students better. The next area that needs to be addressed for all aspiring teachers, is the ability to show compassion and firm control of the classroom. I always wonder if my desire to help my students will keep me from giving the firm speech that propelled me into the career path I have chosen. This is why I believe few people have the ability to be a successful mentor, especially in the high school age. Both of these aspects are needed to be an effective instructor in any environment, however, the greatest challenge between these two categories is the ability to continue my own education.…

    Surrounding myself with friends who supported that decision made receiving a college education an even bigger drive because we shared the same goal. Education opens a lot of doors in life and without an education possibilities are limited for a stable job in today’s society. Not only does education demonstrate how to think intensively and critically, but it also broadens your horizons and gives you a backbone for life. I have always appreciated school since I was little, but sometimes it can be challenging. My parents would always tell me, “if it was easy, everybody would do it”.…

    I work very hard in order to maintain noteable grades, but still allow myself a balance between academics and life outside of school. In spite of the challenging courses I take in school, I manage to excel in the majority of them. I do this by taking the time to meet with teachers outside of class and setting up a meeting if I feel I do not thoroughly understand the material. I find education very important as you have it for the rest of your life and no one can take it away from you. Because of this, I don’t go through my classes and schoolwork just to get good grades, but instead to truly learn the material and expand my knowledge.…

    I admit, some of the courses I have taken were quite interesting and enjoyable, and I have learned many things. I do not resent any part of being in school because I am doing this for myself. And plus there is the added bonus of making my family proud of me and my accomplishments. I always thought school wasn’t for me and that the only reason I would ever even go to college was to get people to stop nagging me about wasting my time and being lazy. But I realized that it is always important to have a backup plan because you never know what the future holds, especially when your dream job isn’t the safest.…
