About my college education:
It is interesting and enjoyable. Challenging at times because you have you maintain such grade to still be in the Dean's list. As an educator, hard work and patience are important. Interpersonal skills also because you are going to be in front of a hundred students a day or interacting with parents and fellow colleagues. Creativity - to be able to think motivations and activities that you are going to give your students. And of course, English, math, science, etc skills which depends on your major.
