I believe that education should be inspiring. You should feel welcome and ready to learn when you come in to class. This should be a want and not a have to. For me education was never inspiring. I went through school with an attitude of ‘I didn’t want to be here’ and ‘I wasn’t smart’. It was not till the end of my high school career that I got inspired. I only wished that is was sooner and for some people it is. I wish that I could have changed and cared about school a little more and I might have if I knew this. The thing that in spired me, was knowing that I was number one in the group of kids that had learning disabilities. It all started when my mom came home one day after having a meeting with my adviser. They had told my mom that I was doing great in school and that I was the only one that was even trying to take college level classes. This open my eyes that yah I might not be at the top of the class but I was at the top of the learning disability kids. This showed me that I could do anything that I wanted to do. Yes I might have a learning disability and mine might not be as bad as some but that was not stopping me from trying and that should have not stopped anyone else from trying either. When my mom told me the news, I just could not believe it. This made me come into college with a whole new attitude. When I got here I told my self that I wanted to be valedictorian of my college class. That I was going to show people that even kids with learning disabilities could be successful in life. It does not matter who or what you came with it is about what your dreams are and how you are going to get there. For me a want to become a teacher, I went to show my kids that learning can inspire you. That learning can make your dreams come true. This is way I believe the education should be inspiring to kids no matter where they come from.
