Journal 9 - Skyler Buschman

I found this film to be incredibly powerful. It made me think about how the future of the world is in the hands of younger generations, and when you are able to have them bloom into incredible, hard working people, then it can produce a better world. 
In my elementary education experience, I cannot say that I had as much encouragement and determination shown towards me than the teacher did in this class. I had a much more private education, as I was a quiet and shy student. I did however, hear a lot of inspirational and useful advice that the teachers had given in previous years that I still remember today. It's amazing how bug of an impact having a good education when you're a child can have compared to when you're an adult. It's a whole new world.
What I took from this film, that instilling goals and inspirations into the minds of young children can lead to amazing achievments in their lives. When pushed and encouraged to do great, hard work, and are shown the rewards that they can bring, that can light a flame in any kid to push themselves to succeed and get to where they want to go in life. They are powerful things.
My goal for next year would be to dedicate a little bit more of my time to fully completing all of my work to completion and understanding. I do not want myself to push through a course and not fully understand the material because it can have very bad consequences.


  1. Hey Skyler, I like your attitude towards your goal to fully understand the material. I can be that way where all I need is to pass and not care about understanding the material. It's very mature of you to want to fully grasp the content and also it's encouraging to see someone like you going to college for the right reasons.

  2. I think that what you had to say about the goals was exactly what Rafe was trying to push to the students. I know that my parents and teachers have always pushed for me to set goals and when I do it is very rewarding.
