The value of education is important to some individuals, but not to everyone. Some people might think education is not important, or they think it’s a waste of time, but I think differently. Education is important to me mainly because it can determine what my future holds. It’s also important because it can teach me everything I will need to know to be prepared.

My new attitude has made me the person I am now: Someone who is positive, and who believes that if I take my time, concentrate, and do my work, I will accomplish my goals.
Not graduating on time taught me that education is the key part in my life. I need it to succeed. There will be tutors and teachers who will always be there to help and make sure you don’t fail. Mrs. B is an awesome high school teacher who will make sure you are comfortable with the work and make sure you understand the problems you are doing. She always tries her best to help students succeed and graduate. She is an excellent example of a successful person because she never gave up on anything and she kept striving until she got what she deserved. I would love to do the same as her and become a successful person.
Now I am only a couple days of getting my diploma. I am looking forward in continuing my education and going to college. I want to study criminal justice and, eventually, become a police officer. My goal in college is to study hard and do the best I can do. I know college is not a joke, and I will do everything in my power to listen, do my homework, and study more often until I earn my college
