This topic was dear to me in several ways. If just one student sees how career choice is one of the most important life decisions he or she will ever make, the work will have paid off. The friends I have made not only as instructors, but also truly as life advisors will assist me throughout my lifelong endeavors. I was truly fortunate to have Dr. Mike Galloy as my first and last instructor and advisor for this paper. His balance as an instructor is a talent and a gift I can only hope to emulate in any instructional capacity I pursue. Dr. Galloy has helped me find stability in my studies many times, when I thought I was lost. Thank you, Mike. Dr. Amy Gillett, you showed me that learning any subject is possible. With the attitude you possess as an instructor, students cannot lose. I will always be reminded of that. I thank the entire staff of the UW-Stout campus, including
