My parents instilled in me the importance of obtaining a quality education when I was young. My grandparents had little education and worked as migrant day laborers; my father and his siblings, once of age, all worked in farm fields to help provide for the family. My father recognized the struggle of my grandparents and joined the military at eighteen as a way to open up more opportunities for himself. His military service helped him afford the cost of a college education. He knew and taught me that an education is the only sure way to have socioeconomic stability and upwards mobility. My father's struggles and hard work are what motivate and inspire me to continue my education and pursue a Master's degree. A quality education is what I seek
My parents could not be more different when it comes to how important education plays a role in your life. My mom earned her masters in special education and belives that it has made her a better teacher to her students. My dad on the other hand did not make to high school and thinks a person just needs to work in life. Growing up I felt like I was stuck in the middle of how I felt about education. Now, I am in my twenties and seen what both choices have resulted in for each one of my parents through out life, and believe that now having an education is the best way to go through life. Work is also important and will get you through, but having an education just makes life a little bit easer.
To begin, my immediate family is well-educated, meaning that both of my parents received a primary education, but also went on to study and graduate from universities. I believe this factor allowed me to succeed in coming to ISU, because my parents were able to recognize the significance of their higher education and how it correlated with their careers and current lifestyle. These factors contributed to my parents instilling in me the need to receive a college education in order to have more access to future opportunities.
My mother grew up to parents who never graduated from elementary school and this influenced her life in profound ways. She saw how her parents were living and wanted to create a better life not only for herself but also
When I was younger, both my mother and father would do their best to explain the importance of education for a better future, and at a very young age I did my very best to understand. In high school there was a certain eminence to having a job and I
Personal Statement Education has always been an important foundation upon which my family encouraged the most. Not just the education pertaining to structured schooling, but the fundamentals in life that require you to interact in society and be a part of something bigger than yourself. They demonstrated how to
Why do you want to go to college? Education is key. My parents have always taught me that whatever you learn stays with you for the rest of your life. College is my aspiration. I want to attend a four year university to maintain a better lifestyle. I love learning new things; it’s like an addiction and you just want to absorb more knowledge. I witness my parents arrive home everyday tired because all they desire is to give me a better life. They want me to succeed and I have just opened my eyes and realized life is harder than I thought. My parents want the best for me and I want the best for myself which means if I try my best I can achieve my goal into making it into a four year university and graduating.
The one thing that stayed constant in my ever changing childhood was the need and thirst for education. My mother would stress the importance of education and how it was the only way I would ever rise above the tragic world we lived in. Also, she explained how the only way I would get an education was to succeed in school, earn scholarships, and get a college education. This is advice I took to heart and used continuously to grow myself. My mother did her best to make me perfect my spelling, grammar, and mathematic skills. She would force me to read for an hour a night. Over time, these things came with ease because I craved learning new things. I wanted to learn how things worked, solve puzzles, and understand the world around me. School became a sanctuary in which I could escape the penitentiary of my circumstances. My devotion to studies began here which later bloomed into my love of the sciences, overall
Parent’s goals are to their children become successful learners so that children can do extremely well as an adult. Regardless if parents receive their high school diploma, parents still talk to their children about the importance of education (Thao, 2009).
Education plays a huge roll in my life. Growing up, my family always prioritizes education. From my point of view, education is the key to a successful lifestyle. I was taught to go to school for an education, so I could apply what I learned into a lifelong career. I
There is one person that I confide in the most, and that would be my husband. I would say that his learning patterns compliment my learning patterns well. There are rarely any disagreements between us and we always seem to figure things out together.
When I was little school was something that seemed to be the most important thing to do but I felt as it wasn’t. When I would talk to someone about school they would always say “make sure you do your best so you can have a bright future.” I never really understood why they would say that until I got older. Growing up with a family that did not enjoy education or dropped out because they felt as it was a waste of time was a good reason for me to do well in school. Having a brother and sister who joined the Army just because they did not do well in school made an impact on me. Two of my cousins decided to drop out just because they were too lazy which made me want to do even better in school. They all made me want to accomplish more for myself and education was the best way to achieve that.
In the field of learning and training, some experts assert that Generation Y employees (born between 1980 and 1994) learn in different ways than the baby boomer generation (born between 1946 and 1964). Critically evaluate this assertion, through reference to learning theory covered in this Unit and scholarly research on the subject of age influences on adult learning.
My understanding of needing to pursue a higher education began at a young age. The transition from elementary school into middle school gave me a wake up call; I knew I needed to try harder to receive better grades. I can contribute some of my motivation of being successful in school to living in a small town that I did not feel it did a good job to support individuals like myself who wanted to shoot high for their dreams. Moreover, being a low income latina in a rural conservative town gave me a perspective many of my caucasian friends did not have. Because it seemed that the environment I was in was against me, it challenged me to strive for my future.
Emancipatory Education Project Name: Course: Instructor: Date: Introduction Emancipatory is among the different types of adult learning. The aim of it is to give freedom to the learners to limit their control and options in their lives and enable them to take actions which bring change to their political and social change. Emancipatory learning emphasizes that the transformation in a learners life can only take place in an adult’s life because it is only in adulthood or adolescence that a person can be caught in his reliving and history (Merriam, 2010). These realities and myths examine the degree to which adult education fulfils the emancipator mission by investigating the practices and beliefs which surrounds the emancipator learning.
