The hunt for a job/internship goes on……!
I have been figuring out what I want to do with my life. This is a slow and ongoing process. I will never have it all worked out, as that is the nature of life. I know that there are a few concrete things I would like to do.
To continue learning.
To work in an educational environment.
To remember what is most important to me.
To find people to support me in this process.
According to http://www.lifehacker.com, a life plan should answer the following three questions:
1 How do you want to be remembered?
2 What matters most to you? (I will give my own answer to this in a future post)
3 How can you get from here to where you want to be?
I am slowly forming these ideas every day.
Life as a disabled student has its challenges.
I came across a quote a while ago which said:
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
William Arthur Ward
So it is with my experience of education. As a student with (thankfully) mild disabilities, I still have had to put extra effort in to keep up with my peers. I use some assistive technology in lectures – not to give me an unfair advantage, but to allow me to remain on the same level as classmates. According to the quote I have had far more great teachers than mediocre ones and I am grateful for that. I believe that education should be inclusive and my lecturers confirm that belief every day.
