This year in many classes we were asked what teacher or what experience in school inspired you to become a teacher. For me the answer was simple, but it was not my teacher or the people from school, it was my family. My family to me is my biggest inspiration and has been the biggest influence on me throughout my life.
My family is very close and no matter what happens we are always supportive of each other. When my dad was younger he did not have the most encouraging home and in turn did not get to try many things and shoot for the stars because he didn’t have the support to back him up. That is why, as we were growing up, my parents always tried to keep a positive and supportive atmosphere for us.
In June of 2012 my parents decided to move to Moose Jaw, SK. and started a business together. With this new business came great change and with great change have also come with many struggles financially. My parents have struggled all their lives with finances, but always provided for us and in spite of all the struggle they kept their faith and courage to know that everything would work out. Their positivity and perseverance inspires me every time I am struggling and I am so greatful for the family I have.
