Teacher Feature: Determination
Mrs. Peters talks about determination:
As a high school senior I knew that taking the SAT was inevitable. Going to college was extremely important to me however standardized timed tests were never my strong suit. I bought practice books and worked for what felt like an endless amount of time with a SAT tutor. I knew that math was going to cause me the most trouble. When studying I targeted my weaknesses and was determined to do well on this test. Admitting that something is difficult for you is the first step in persevering and overcoming the challenge. I ended up scoring higher than the goal I set for myself. This is an experience I continue to go back to when I encounter something difficult.
