I’ve been putting off writing my final blog. That’s because I don’t believe any string of words can describe the way this class has changed my outlook about learning or life.

They say that you change after you go to college- that not only applies to getting away from family (what most people apply the “change” to- a sense of independence), but also to the aspect of the knowledge you learn throughout your college years. As a society we seem to underrate the importance of a good education- which sadly, is a terrible thing.  With an education not only can you gain a “good” career, but you can change your outlook on life. That’s why so many colleges stress to students to become well rounded. An education allows students to be able to face the world around them and gain the knowledge they need in order to achieve the impossible. And yes, an education does not just mean high school/college or is just applied to “books”.  Sometimes that knowledge is called wisdom and it is something that we can pass along to each other.  I have learned that lesson in this class.

This has been the one class in which I feel truly comfortable, felt as if I “knew” my classmates, and learned from them.

So thank you Ms. Basford, you are the unconventional teacher in which we were blessed to have guide us through our journey in speech class. I hope you find the happiness you dream of finding outside the classroom- you deserve every bit of it!
