What I Learned About Myself

By completing the assessments I learned many things about myself.  However, many of these were things that I already knew, such as that I like to plan things out and make sure everything is organized.  I also knew that I like to work with and care for people, especially children. I learned that I like to do things step by step and be sure I complete the task correctly.  I like to focus on one thing at a time and use my full abilities and creativeness while doing so.

This will help me with my future goals because I want to be some sort of teacher. All of these things that I learned will help me because teachers need to be able to plan out their lessons and be organized.  They need to enjoy working with people and children.  Teachers also need to be creative in order to come up with new projects and activities for the students to do.

Love the life you live and live the life you love.
