On the other hand, I am fully aware of academic honesty policies conducted by the University of Phoenix. Upholding academic honesty is crucial for students because the University does not tolerate any sort of academic dishonesty, including plagiarism.

As for me, my major educational goal is my major degree in elementary education. I was always interested in working at school because I like children and I like teaching them. No wonder, my career goal is working at school with little children. This is a great pleasure to help children to uncover the unknown world and that is the job of teachers.

However, learning is quite difficult because I have to perform well at the University, work and family. This is why time management is crucial for the successful learning. In fact, I have two kids of 6 and 2 years old. My elder child goes two school every day from 8 am to 3 pm, while my younger child stays with me. Hence, I have the time to do my assignment on Saturday night. In fact, this is the main time, which can dedicate to my learning, but I try to do my best to use any free time I get occasionally for leaning.

In addition, I still face some challenges that may affect my education. For instance, reading comprehension is quite challenging for me because English is my second language. However, I am ready to do my best to learn successfully and hard. In this regard, gaining proficiency in English is one of my priorities at the moment.

At the same time, I have to adapt my work habits to fit my personality. Otherwise, if my internal inclinations and traits of character come into clashes with what I am doing at work, then I will be unable to perform my work effectively. In this regard, I am very concerned with balancing my internal inclination and my work. This is why I have chosen my major in the elementary education because it matches perfectly my interests and inclinations.

In fact, I am conscious of the fact that I have my strengths and weaknesses in learning. For instance, my major strengths are visual, kinesthetic, concrete, and linear learning and perception. As for my weaknesses, I could define my weaknesses in my learning style as abstract, auditory and random learning and perception.

Nevertheless, I feel confident in my skills and abilities to learn and to obtain my major in the elementary education. I am ready to work hard and to overcome all the challenges to meet my educational goals.
