I am pursuing a degree at ITT Tech because my girlfriend asked me what I was going to school for and I told her, I wanted to go to school for computer science or electrical engineering. I love computers, phone’s, updated gaming consoles, and new modern technology because that’s what I world is turning into. I told her I was going back to college this summer attending Longview Community College. The whole main reason for me even going to school is to better myself and for my kids. They need me to set an example for when they get older and it’s difficult to take care of kids when you’re working dead end jobs, living check to check.
"Parents are guides and leaders to their children, not a nanny." Parents show their children and make them realize how important it is to learn it and they keep pushing until they want to learn it because it is only your parents who truly love you. Neil Millar starts his inspiring essay by setting the scene of, "a loving parent striving to give your children the best life you can offer", this is relating to most parents with their children. Neil is mainly setting his goal to help parents, "raise well-rounded, confident, considerate children that show gratitude and appreciation for all that is give to them". It is very clear that he shows that it is important
Nicole Williams, A student, “I had to take my daughter out of the center because my husband and I could not afford all three children”. As we have learned it is important for daycare to have cleanliness, activities, flexible hours, reasonable prices, and a convenient location. The quality of a daycare is important because parents are entrusting their children to the care of someone else. As children develop, they will need to learn how to entertain themselves and also how to interact with others in various settings and
My life growing up and my parent’s lives growing up are completely different. Since they were already a teenager and know what it's like, they try to enforce me not to make the same mistakes they did so I can learn from them and so I will do a better job than they did. I think that is what most parents want from their kids. To do better then they did. Since parents went through it they know how most things will turn out if you make a certain mistake or decisions.
I have started paying more attention in classes than last year and im trying to produce good assignments which gain me the grades I desire. I want to be able to earn god money for myself and not be hanging onto my parents for life and become an independent woman. I believe that an individual’s personal learning process would include: informal and formal learning, motivation, attitudes, friends, learning style and access to resources.I choose these influences because they all have an effect on an
All about Me Jennifer Webb COLL 100 I026 Fall 11 American Public University Eleanor Hewitt My name is Jennifer Webb and I am going to write an essay about why I decided to go back to school. I got tired trying to found a decent job, I wanted my daughters to follow in myself steps and go to college. I learned that most jobs are looking for some kind of college degree. I have been out of school for awhile and so I was a little nervous but after getting started I feel more comfortable with going to school. I want my daughters to always know that you can never get to old to learn new things.
Returning Back to School I graduated back in 1984. While I was in high school, I had never thought about college because I was lead to believe that for me to go to college I had to have scholarships. So I decided that I will have to make do on what I can do for myself. Well back in 2000, a friend asked me why I haven’t decided to go back to school. She told me that I should seriously consider to think about what I can accomplish for myself and my children by returning back to school for a better career, so we talked about what possible careers that is good for me.
And the number one answer I could think of right off the back was to make that money. Nowadays, student around my age only think about going to college in order to be successful finically, not just for an education. Although some choose to learn far beyond the classroom, many students fail to take the time to go into deeper thinking to figure things out for themselves. I believe education is a tool that a person obtains through many years of development and learning, and will be continuously employed throughout the duration of their lives. Growing up, my mom pretty much told me that if I was not joining the military then I was for sure going to college.
This observation told me that if I wanted to be sure to live life to the fullest, I would definitely need to further my education. I look at my parents and see hard-working individuals. My mother became a licensed nurse as soon as she became pregnant with her first child when she just nineteen years old. She knew that particular field would help provide for her and this new baby. She made it work as a single parent raising both my brother and I after my parents’ divorce.
I looked up to my mom for guidance on how I should deal with situations. Promptly after my mother’s diagnosis I realized I had a few choices to make. I could either live in the past, dwelling on life prior to the diagnosis and stay angry at what my life had become; I could live in the future, obsessing over the possibility of losing my mother; or I could accept the changes in my life and live in the moment. Being the strong young woman, my mom had taught me to become, through this new challenge I needed to be stronger than ever, not only for myself but for my mother too. She never let herself show how upset she was when she struggled though life supporting us, she lived sacrificing every moment.
