My high school education has positively affected my career and life choices. During these four years, I have had, in my opinion, some of the best teachers in the entire Lamar Consolidated district. My teachers have pushed me to achieve my dreams with high expectations and interesting and useful lessons and without their presence in my life, I would not have achieved all that I have now.

Studying more for test and quizzes will help me do better. Adjusting to
As mentioned, my first year of college I had the blessing of a life time, an experience so great that it would switch up my entire career and life. Becoming a father was not the hardest part of it, but the time it consumed out of my study time. As such, when I recently had to devote time and energy into my little one, it seemed like indirectly proportional to my grades. My grades were falling ever so radially, like if a boat was skinning faster and faster. Trying to balance being a father, work to support my family, and school to escape the spiral of poverty in my community was difficult to do.

When I was younger I dropped out of school and I incurred a small amount of student loan debt. The debt I created still exist today, albeit in a much smaller amount, but it still made it tough to jump back into another financial relationship with a college. My first time in college I took every dollar given to me, even though I received a five-year educational grant to attend school. My youth and lack of wisdom led me to take every dollar offered to me and consequently waste it on trivial things.

Since I was a little girl I would always hear my parent telling my older sibling how important it was to graduate high school and go to college. Now that I am grown, I understand why my parents would tell them and me to get a degree.
Experiences are different for every African-American family, but ultimately are handled in similar ways because of culture. As for me education is a big deal in my family. This is largely based on the fact that many members of my family either didn’t go to college or didn’t finish until later in their lives. I was born in Alabama while my mom was in college. My mother and I returned to Seattle when I was six months old.
As a student I am guaranteed time off year around so that I can relax and overcome the stress that school causes. Most workers, like my mother, work hours that are far longer than the time I spend in school.

Lower income students have more than homework to worry about at home. As stereotypical as it is, children born into richer families get almost everything they want handed to them. They don’t have to work hard in and out of school, they get to enjoy their summer and maybe study a little bit. The poorer children may be working to help provide for their families, or they spend their summers cooking, cleaning, and babysitting siblings while their parents work long hours.
