I Feel Made A Big Impact On Me During This Program

One course I feel made a big impact on me during this program was week 5 of PEDG 5372 Assessment Data to Guide Instructional Decisions. This course was taken at the beginning of this journey to complete my Master’s Degree, in the summer before my second year of teaching.

My purpose is to help others. While many little occurrences have led me to find this, such as becoming a cheerleading coach, one event made it clear. I found this purpose during my junior year of high school through a program called Natural Helpers. Through this program I was able to realize many things, but most importantly being my purpose in life.

While I believe Duckworth’s theory to be useful and that having â€Å"Grit† can be key to one’s success in college completion, I do believe that it is the backbone to many other traits and outside influences important to succeed in college. In the case of Donna Beegle’s Story, I think that Duckworth’s theory would be only somewhat useful to understand her success.

I spent half of my awkward pre-adolescence days there, while I attended I participated in a bunch of extra curricular activities- you name it, and I probably managed to juggle it. Anything from track and field, the eco team, the volleyball team, basketball team, and refereeing school games in my spare time.
