You Cannot Be Anything You Want, Even If You Work Hard Enough…

From 2007 to 2012, I dedicated five years of my life to becoming an effective social studies instructor. All through the education coursework, the classroom observations, the student teaching, the substitute teaching assignments, and the full time teaching and coaching positions, I observed on numerous occasions administrators, teachers, coaches, and other practitioners of secondary education tell students, “you can be anything you want to be, if you work hard enough.” While this advice was well intended and accepted by the recipient as words of encouragement, I felt that the students who accepted this mantra were done a disservice because it is not true: you cannot be anything you want to be, even if you work hard enough, because you might not have the talent, skill or ability. 303 more words
