My Road to College
I have decided to go back to college to show my kids that anybody can do anything if they just put their minds to it. My kids are my main reason to going back to school.

I still have responsibilities to take care of. I can’t forget that things still need to be done around the house. On my busy day I will have dinner laid out for my mother to cook. I try to plan doctor appointments for when I don’t have school and on my short days gives me time to get homework done and do little errands done.

My husband is a huge reason for me going back to school. He knew my love of teaching children. He gave me the idea to go back to school to become an ESL teacher. Yeah, I know that teachers are having a really hard time in this economy right now, but ESL teacher needs are growing by the minute. My husband’s cousins have children in school and they go home with their homework and the parents don’t know or understand what their children are supposed to be doing.
