Determination: Ms. Gomez's Story
I took a math class in high school called Calculus. It was very hard for me, and sometimes it felt impossible. I spent hours after school with my teacher and other math teachers, just trying to understand what was going on. Homework twice as long as my classmates. I was frustrated and sad, but I made myself keep working. At the end of the year we had a big test, and I was determined to get a good grade. When we got our scores, I found that my hard work paid off, I passed! I was so proud of myself. Through this experience I learned that I can do anything I set my mind to, as long as I work hard.
