This is my first blog as well as my first slice, so hang in there. I sit here at the computer wondering why I go to school. Twenty-one credits, part-time job, coaching. Why do I do this to myself? I'm so close to the ends, but there is such a hill to climb before I get there. I think to myself, "We can't possibly be given anymore assignments." I am wrong. They stack up and fill my calendar like I'm important or something. But then it hits me that I am important. I am going to be a teacher. I get to teach kids and be a positive figure in their lives. I get to laugh and learn with them. I get to let them know that regardless of their situations, they have somebody on their side. I then regain focus, plow through some homework, and think about the great future ahead of me. That is why I go to school.
