I remember the day clearly. I was in eighth grade and at that awkward stage trying to figure out who I was and who I wanted to be. My language arts teacher, Mrs. Streit, pulled me aside and asked me why I wasn't trying harder. I had been doing well in the class, so I wasn't sure what she meant. She explained that she knew I could be a great writer, but I wasn't putting the effort in. We had a creative writing assignment every week and she asked that I just think more deeply and spend more time with that week's assignment. She said she was excited to read what she knew I could write.
So, I took her advice. Instead of waiting until the last minute, I did as she asked. That week, the class voted my story the best in the class, something I had never won before. With newfound confidence, I put in the effort every week and won many times after that. A passion was ignited.
That teacher had more confidence in me than I had in myself and she knew just what to do to bring it out. From that moment on, I took pride in my writing and always put the effort in.
Look at me today-writing. In every job I've ever had (well, maybe except the movie candy counter) I've been tapped to write, and I couldn't be happier. Would I be in this same place without that one special teacher pointing me in this direction? I don't know for sure but I'm guessing my life might be different. Mrs. Streit mattered, because I mattered to Mrs. Streit.
