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.
Lesley Rodriguez 5-16-14 AVID Per.0 Reflection My sophomore school year was something very different for me than my freshmen year. I met many new people and made new friends, and learned many new things. Such as things that could help me in my daily life to things that can help me out greatly in my future to succeed. One of the things I learned throughout this semester is that there are no short cuts in life and you’ll only go far as you push yourself, yes, it will be difficult and time consuming to achieve my goals but in the end it will all be worth it. I have to work hard every single day to maintain my path to success.
Balancing School, Work, and Family In America it is important to have an education to enhance your job and provide a comfortable future for your family. After having my daughter I realized that education is significant in order to succeed. Working takes a lot of time away from my family.

The problem I have with balancing school, work, and family is being an excellent student, an outstanding employee, and a caring mother all at the same day.

I try and learn something new every day.
They need to work on their lesson plans for the younger toddlers who attend their center in the morning to the afternoon.

This system, along with an intrinsic motivation to do well, has always encouraged me to do my best in school and do whatever I could to learn more and keep my grades high, resulting in me being a better student, learning more study skills, and getting higher grades than I might have otherwise.

She keeps me very busy. Since my father’s health decreased it feels as if I am taking care of another child. Having all of these people to take care of is a real challenge but I am OK with my decision to do so. In a future I hope to be happier.

I realized that being a counselor is not easy. She has to meet with a lot of kids every day, do communications log, and provide assistance to the kids in any way she can. I know a long day of work can sometimes be really exhausting, however my mom does not give up and still does everything she can to parent me. She guides me in the right path and is always there for her. Her perseverance on keeping things the right way is so amazing.
