My Life

I am attending this college success class due to the fact I had very poor grades in my previous

semesters. I have been attending Palo Alto College for about four years now off and on of course. After

four years of college I wish my GPA was more worthy to show to others. After the first semester of

college I still was undecided on my major and what I wanted to do with my life. I took a liking for the

arts when I was in high school. During high school I was attending an art program called Say Si (San

Antonio Artistic Youth) I attend this program all through my high school years. After graduating from

this program I was offered a job in their ABC (artist building communities) program. In this program I

was able to mentor children that have no art programs in their current school. We also would teach at

different types of children shelters and children hospitals.

I enjoy teaching very much, I was looking into teaching art in a school district. But after

teaching for 4 years I think it takes a special person to teach little kids. I really don't have the patiences

for teaching 2nd and 3rd graders. I current teach but only older kids. Two semesters have passed and I

slacked off on my school and I was going through a rough time in my life with my family. I picked up a

second job due to the fact my teaching job was only two days out of the week. I started working in the

automotive business selling auto parts. I worked there for the last two years. I loved learning about cars

and how they work. But after awhile my school schedule did not fit into my work schedule. My boss

would give me a hard time about my school life all the time. I had the craziest schedule while working

with auto parts. I would go to work in the morning and go to school during my lunch break and I would

also go to school after work as while. This was everyday for almost a year and six months. It was two

much for me...
