HOMH: Mrs. McCredie’s self-motivation surpasses failure


Story by Ruby Castellanos Cruz

I needed to pass a test in order to become a teacher. I failed the test five times; they didn’t give me any feedback on that failure. I had no direction and it wasn’t until that sixth time I told myself if I don’t pass it this time I’m not going to be a teacher and that was the moment I truly passed. My biggest fear is when I stop learning, even when I’m a senior citizen, I want to keep learning. And I think the moment when I stop learning is the moment that it’s over, the moment that I should probably leave this earth.”
