I started back to school in August of 2009. I was never good in school before. All I could think about is getting out of school and working full time at a Job. I have worked in the business world for a long time. I was laid off and the unemployment office told me I could go back to school for free. I was so nervous. The two classes were American History and Sociology Paul Nygar was the History teacher and he made it fun. I got a A out of that class. The Sociology class was taught by Cindy Banks. I enjoyed her class so much. Those two teachers made me understand that I could really do this. I could get a College Degree. The other really awesome teacher was Dr. Rosenthral. He was a very informative story telling teacher. There were so many things that I learned I could do. it was not easy but that was what was nice, to get to the end of the semester and have an A or a B and know you did your best. I have one more class to go for my Associates Degree.
