“My American Creed”
What is my American Creed...my American Creed is that I believe that education is the key to success. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world..”(Nelson Mandela)
Why is education the key to success? “Education is the key to success in life, and teachers make a lasting impact in the lives of their students”(Solomon Ortiz). I say education is the key to success because even though many may say that it does not prepare us for what we need in real life or everyday life. It gives us good social skills, work ethic and time management. Many come to the conclusion that what teachers teach us won’t be useful for us in the future or won’t benefit us for the specific career path that we would like to go down but it shows us what we are strong and excel significantly at which can help us to see what we are truly fit best for. “Education is the key to unlock the Golden door of Freedom”(George Washington Carver). Having an education puts us in the best place to have a secured future for ourselves. We can think outside the box to come up with productive ideas which can do us good. Even better it’ll place us with a good paying job.
From experience my mom didn’t finish high school neither did she attend college she is 34 years old and has been with her job for 10 years. Recently she has gotten an opportunity to work at a higher stance with her company with a better pay. It took her 10 years to be able to show her company that even though she didn’t attend college and didn’t complete high school that she can make a difference for them. Even though it turned out okay for her she still struggles for many things because she could be way higher but because of the past it may be awhile before she gets another opportunity to step up to another level. Then looking at my stepdad who finished high school and graduated college with a degree is the manager of his company just after a couple years of working with them.
Looking at with what our teachers teach at school even though right now we can’t really say what will help us we could be surprised when we meet face to face again with it in the future. While comparing both my mom and step dad with the set of education that they have it really shows me how having an education really is the key to having a successful future. With it you can accomplish more than you think and it can have a great impact on your life. So when in class don’t see what your teacher is teaching you as a waste of time look at it as setting you on the right path to making your future a walk in the park because what their doing is making things easier for you.
