The educator who has made the most impact in me would have to be Elgin High School’s Athletic Trainer, Daniel Talavera. I say this because he is the one who helped me to realize what I want to accomplish and be in life.

Honestly, without this experience and hard work that I put in I’d probably still be trying to figure out what I wanted to be, what I was going to major in, where I was going to college at etc. in other words, I would be utterly clueless about where I wanted life to take me. I have known Dan for a while as my Dad’s friend that when we were hurt badly we went to. After a bad experience playing softball my freshman year, I decided to go talk to Dan about training as something to do before wrestling season and to learn more so as to help the wrestlers, I never expected to fall in love with training and everything that it includes.

We've all seen the late night and Saturday morning infomercials aimed at people with poor credit ratings who need to buy a car. They will sell you a car, but you are going to pay through the nose. You could end up with an interest rate as high as 20 to 28% annually. If you have a credit rating of 720 or higher you can get financed for as low as 3.9%, during special promotional deals. Most people I know, except for my father-in-law, don't have perfect credit. No matter what your credit rating, you…
College is a place to continue the appreciation of knowledge “to
nourish a world of intellectual culture”(Gutting) to understand deeply and I plan to take
advantage of this opportunity.

further classes of the subject by ta…
