Different Paths-June 23, 2022

Today in class a student and I were talking about the different paths that are possible to take during and after high school. I told him a story about a former coworker I had who never graduated from high school due to getting pregnant, but then went on to community college, a four year university, a master’s degree, then into teaching and educational administration. Sometimes the paths we intend to take work out to be something entirely different. There are many different directions we can take, but eventually we can still get to our desired destination. Or maybe we find a new destination that works out even better than our original intention. Or maybe not, but we learn a lot from the experience and grow as a person.

For today’s prompt, write about an unexpected path that you have taken in your life.
