Why I Want to go to College
By: Samantha Bowland
As written papers were handed back and Keynote presentations were being presented, I kept on seeing the same words over and over again. “You would be a great teacher.” “I see you being a teacher when you get older.” Then I started thinking about what it really meant and what I want to be when I grow up. I’ve thought about being a vet, a doctor, and a truck driver like my dad. Then I thought about those papers and grading notes and I realized that I would need to go college to find and achieve my goals of being a middle school math teacher.
I have many goals for my future. One of these is to go to Nebraska Christian College in Papillion, NE. I will go and receive an Associate of Arts Degree in Christian Ministry. Another goal that I have is to go to Wayne State College and earn a degree in teaching. Once I have a degree in teaching, I will apply for a job at a school and hopefully I will be able to teach my favorite class, math. I hope to be able to achieve these goals.
My education will help me reach my goal because without it I would not be able to follow my dream to be a middle school math teacher. If I had not gone to school, I would not be able to have my wonderful educators to inspire me. About a year ago, I started having trouble with turning in all my homework. My teachers may have been an upset, but they helped me pass 6th grade with A’s and B’s. Without them, I would probably still be in sixth grade. These teachers helped me remember to not give up but keep trying. I hope that when I become an educator I will have the same drive as my many teachers though out the years I have been in school.
All in all, I hope that more colleges are founded and many students will have the opportunity to go to college. Having a good education is so helpful in the work force. It opens many doors for your future. Even if you don’t know what you want to be when you grow, still go to a college and earn a diploma because it will help you reach your goals.
