Reaching a goal
I first realized I wanted to be a teacher when I was volunteering my time to coaching youth cheerleading. I found enjoyment in helping children learn new things. I decided then that I would set a goal for myself to become an Elementary school teacher. That day is when I decided I would find a good college, prioritize my time better, and put my educations first. This is the first part of my previous essay. I think it's a good...

Do not forget to check spelling, grammar, transitions, AUDIENCE, and sentence structure. If your audience is the school faculty...which it usually is, so remember they are professional grown ups that want professional grown ups at their school, NO SLANG!

WGU is a completely online school. It is totally real! At first I wasn't so sure, but I dug super deep into it. Now I'm a junior working towards my BA.

To complete a "class" you will only have to...
