I never really took school seriously, I never even dreamt of being a college student, I wasn’t motivated. That was until, I saw that my parents were struggling financially and then filed for a divorce. Every time things got hard, both my mom and dad would tell me to “Focus, take school serious so that you can be successful and help us in the future”. Those words were my call to adventure. That was my motivation, that made me graduate high school and enroll myself at College of Saint Elizabeth.
In the short story, Miss Hancock did care about her students, but she did not care as much as she needed to. In her grade 7 class she was a very good teacher because she taught well and she cared about her students education. In her grade 10 class, she would have been way better if she cared enough about their education, to change the way she was teaching and made it a better english class. The story stated that students called her “Bard”, “ poetic Bliss” and commented things like “Hancock! Whocock?
Oh, that does not matter at the moment we are talking about you and your future" say´s mom I was so overwhelmed that choosing a career could be this hard I began to call colleges and asking nurses which school will be in there best interest. I received a lot of feedback which took a lot of stress off my back knowing the courses wouldn't be that hard if I take good notes and study well. I got home with a idea for me and my mom to go through with which was visting Gateway Community College which has both Radiology and Sonography Associate's programs. " Well this college looks pretty neat, not to many people and plenty of good looking people" "Don't worry about the people worry about getting info on your career" Says mom. The director to the school gave us a detour of the programs starting with Radiology it was a cool
Becoming an Eagle Scout, an athlete, and staying on top of my school work kept me busy so I wouldn’t continue to think about my affinity for the saxophone. Going into my junior year, I heard a new Broadway director was to become the head of our Performing Arts Department. The disparity in time between then and my saxophone days was long. Girls became a greater interest, and I was inspired to join the drama club. The club met everyday after school, and after a few days I realized it didn 't have much in common with the girls.
Salsada is one of those few people in my life who shaped me into the person I am today. He told me not to let underachieving get the best of me. He made me realize that school is not all about homework and the letter grades. It’s about the love of learning and the power of knowledge. Mr. Salsada reminds me of a great quote by Alexandra K. Trenfor, “the best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see”.
The reality of it hit me when I didn’t have to get up at five in the morning,which is what my daily routine called for. In that moment thousands of depressing thoughts rushed through my head. I knew I would miss getting off the bus, seeing my friends circled around each other, and then scurrying to greet me. I would miss the freedom of walking down the halls with my phone in my hand and drama on my mind. I wouldn’t get to complain about how much I didn’t like my classes, when deep down I loved the majority of them.
For years I put all this behind me, I pushed cps out of my mind and caseworkers and social workers did not even exist in my world, that is until college. As I was searching through the list of majors offered at a nearby university I happened upon the “Social work” tab, I almost kept scrolling and avoided it completely, but I’m glad I did not. In my life I had always seen social work strictly as cps, more specifically the removal of children in cps. I was ignorant and did not realize the entire spectrum that social work is on and the vital role they play in communities, the more I begin studying and learning about the field the more I fell in love with it. I feel that my experiences will both help and hinder me, in a sense I have a deep understanding of what many people whom will need a social worker are going through, but because of this I will also have a harder time ensuring I do not over relate than some of my fellow classmates will.
I work two jobs and I'm a full-time college student. I hardly ever have any spare time. Another reason I haven't been able to visit my special place in nature is that it has been very cold. I'm not much of a fan of the cold, so I know not to visit The Lower Dam during this time. Once it begins to warm up hopefully my work and school schedule will allow me to be able to pay a visit to my favorite
