I knew before returning to school that it would be hard to accomplish everything but somehow I will find the time to be a great mother as well as a good student. I live paycheck to paycheck to paycheck and I want more for my children and myself. By returning to school, I am able to show my children that it is never too late to go after your dreams. The only thing stopping you is yourself. I want to be an example for my children, so they will see how important a college education is.
It will be so much fun to help teach and explain what I do and how they do their homework too. Returning to school was the best choice I ever made. I wish that I would have done this a long time ago. But when you become a mother it seems to be a little harder to reach our goals that we want to with our lives. But they also help you keep pushing yourself to become something too because we try to push them to become something that we have not became yet.
Why I am Attending College I decided to go back to college to get further education. I wanted to set a good example for my kids and show them that their education is very important. My life has been an up and down hill battle until I went back to school. I have been out of school for eleven years now, so just imagine how I feel sitting back in a classroom. When I told my mom that I had decided to go back to school she was very proud of me and told me that I can do it as long as I tried hard enough.
I will be able to have an occupation that I thoroughly enjoy and at the same time will be able to afford a decent living for my children and myself. For me to complete my degree at this point in my life is very important. I feel that getting the opportunity to go back to school at my age is actually giving me a second chance to make something of myself. I think my children will see how hard I am working to achieve this certification and it will give them the desire to get a degree as well. I do not want them to struggle as I have these past
So I made up my mind to return to school to pursue my degree. Returning back to school gave me a great feeling. All I could think about is how earning my degree would change the quality of my life. I was never a big-headed person that wanted to live beyond the "normal standards". All I wanted in life was to have an income that would
Obtain my degree would allow me to achieve my goals in life. My degree is a stepping stone in my life it would allow me to become a teacher within the school district and not only preschool. It also shows my job that I’m serious about it; it allows me to receive pay raises and promotions within the company but we all know that without an education that goal is farfetched. I have learned to not look at returning
Going back to school to get a degree will allow me to make a better living for me and my family. My decision to go back to school was met with hesitation due to not being able to finish the first time I was enrolled. I had become ill and failed out of school. That made me leery of going back. I did not want that same incident to happen or anything else for that matter.
If I went back to school I could possible get next one. Even when I went to outside companies, was told I have enough experience but not enough education. Having completed Medical Billing and Coding Certification, I thought I could advance further than were I am now especially with having over 9 years’ experience, but I still hit a dead end applying for different positions and companies has taught me a BA is very important. Nothing will stop me from getting what I want and right now it is getting my BA in Healthcare Administration. This journey is without pit falls, I am only on my third class, since returning back to the classroom.
Like most high school seniors, I felt I knew everything I needed to pass by life. The thought of college very rarely crossed my mind so after high school all I was thinking of was all I need to do now is find a job. I quickly found out finding a job isn’t as easy as everyone who tells you. When I did think of college, I kept telling myself “I think I should take a few years off from school to find work.” Boy was that the worse idea I ever had, and now I wish I could take it all back. Unlike most high school students I didn’t attend a normal class, I felt the teacher was going too slowly at times and there was never any stress from other Students.
One of my major accomplishments is returning to school to complete my undergraduate degree, when I initially dropped out of school roughly 2 years ago. I was able to accomplish this goal, while working full-time and bettering my life. Through this first accomplishment, the only major goal is to ensure better discipline and growth for my children. Through our life experiences, we have to learn from others and on our own, my goal is to ensure, that I have a different delivery method so my children want have to learn the hard way. A second major accomplishment for me is my success in my current organization.
