Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Society in general:

    You'll never finish your degree if you took this long. You'll never make any money doing that. Why do you want to work in education when you're under appreciated?

  • How I responded:

    Although my job is not financially rewarding compared to other routes I could have taken, it is rewarding in that I get to touch the lives of so many students, with kindness and understanding. I am the difference that I wanted to see in my teacher while growing up. It is rewarding in an entirely different way. Sometimes we are under appreciated however, most people will feel under appreciated in their job at one point or another. It's those who appreciate us that matter the most.
