Where do we go from here? After reflecting over the past 3 weeks, and the bounty of learning I know I have done, I can’t help but to contemplate what the upcoming semester has in store for me. I feel that everything I’ve learned from this class has given me a great foundation to build upon, and I know that there is so much more learning to be done, and I can honestly say that I’m excited about that.
It’s really interesting to see about how my conceptions of how I thought this program to be, and what it has turned out to be so far, differ. I am so used to the lecture type of instruction, and I never thought that I would learn so much about myself and others during the process. I feel like a fire has been sparked under my feet that is moving me towards making a change. I know it might sound like a cliche for some, and just an empty motto for others, but I really do want to make a serious, positive impact in our communities in the educational system. I want to challenge the injustices that put our youth in danger. I want to speak out against inequality, and stand up for freedom. I want to be the change that I want to see in our world, but first it requires that I change, before I can change anyone else.
