I was 23 when I first began my career as a middle school educator. I was quite young and filled with hope and curiousity regarding my chosen path in life. I still enjoyed shows on MTV, cartoons on Nickelodeon, and music from a young generation. My spirit was free, I was open-minded, and I understood the mindset of children that were entering my classroom. We would speak freely between classes about TV, music, and other teen-centric topics, and I did so with the best of ease. I sure was proud of myself because I was “with it.” And God knew I would never let that part of me slip away.

Determine a weakness that can be turned into a positive for this job. For example, if you are applying for a job that requires detailed work, you can say that you are a perfectionist which may actually be an asset for the job in question. Another tactic is to pick a weakness that you have already addressed. You could say that you struggle with organization skills but have developed a morning routine that allows you to collect your thoughts and develop a plan for the day.
Within 25 years, our goal is to give 80 percent of Americans access to high-speed rail. For some trips, it will be faster than flying – without the pat-down. At least for now.
In 2001, Mama visited Clarenville and stayed with us for about six months. As she walked around the block with her grandkids, our neighbors would greet her with sweet smiles and warm hellos. She was amazed how kind people were. She just loved this place!
Life gave Mama its wonders and hardships, its opportunities and challenges, and its surprises and disappointments. No doubt, she embraced them all with acceptance and firm resolve.
