I’m a single parent mother of three children and one beautiful grandson. I’ve always strive to better myself and the life of my children. God has blessed me with very good jobs, good enough to support my children. There has always been something missing in my life, and that was my education. I was dubious on what career to choose at first, as I sat at the dinner table and was staring at my oldest daughter and saw how she struggle with reading that’s when I decided to become a Special Education Teacher. By becoming a teacher, I would try to come up with programs to better help kids on learning to read. I don’t know if I would change the world, but I would make sure at least to change a child life by giving the hope of learning to read. To “change the world” those are some three big words; it takes more than one person to change the world, but we can sure try to make a change to save as many children as we can. Spring 2014 was when I started college it has been a struggle because I’m a full time appraiser and a full time mom, but my wonderful children support me 100%. As I sit at my desktop and do my homework, I have my youngest child 11-year-old Victoria doing homework with me as well. I’m willing to take the bull by its horns going all the way none stop. NO one said it would be easy, but it is my main goal to graduate within four years and continue for my masters because I’m in no age to waste time and money beside I already had fun in my life and by bettering myself I will better my children life’s. Goals I have many I will start by putting my children as my main priority, trying to program my classes, my time for homework and the time I need to spend with my children in order to reach my goal of graduating from college it needs to be planned with such deliberate. I’m hoping to bestow some of my endeavors on my children, and encourage them that it is never too late to go back to school. I still have a lot to learn besides it’s only been 22 years that I haven’t been in school, but by being a mature adult I’m more focus, autonomous, responsible and highly dislike failure.
