    Hello,

    I am putting the finishing touches on my graduate school application for masters of arts in education. However, I am having a hard time coming up with one of the four essays they ask you to write. The question goes:

    Describe an experience in which you found yourself changing your views about a significant topic or a significant person in your life. What prompted the change? How do you think that change will affect the teacher you will become?

    I just feel like the significant people in my life have been pretty consistent. I'm sure there is something that has happened in my life which could inspire me to write this essay well, but, as of now, I am stumped! :(

    You've never had occasion to change your mind?

    I am sure I have. I just can't think of one that had any significant meaning. Especially one that I could relate to teaching in any way.

    What made you want to be a teacher?
