I will be a high school junior in the fall of this coming school year. During my sophomore year, I was under immense stress dealing with the loss of my mother during my freshman year & furthermore having a part time job that became more of a full time job during the holiday season. Needless to say, school was no longer a priority of mine during freshman or sophomore year. During my freshman year, I failed algebra & during sophomore I failed geometry and u.s. history. I’ve wanted to be a school teacher my whole life. If I work my hardest and achieve good grades the next two years, will a college accept me? I’m looking for some reassurance I’ve been encountering sleepless nights.
