Finish What You Start

It was hard with my two year program at first. I used a few different motivations- I like to learn, I need the challenge, and I look at my progress - I am almost done now, and that it my motivation. I only have three classes left, and two classes will be when I start my student teaching. My motivation now- finish what you start.

Focus on the Challenge

I realized it was a challenge and that challenge is what motivates me. I am a former basketball player and facing new challenges has been part of my career. I'm really enjoying it.

Don't Let Yourself Fall Behind

I stay motivated for classes by doing keeping up with assignments and reading the lessons thoroughly.
