Expository is explaining
Expository is Explaining

  • Many of the essays you write are designed to explain something. In this case, you’ll be asked to explain the ways in which an important event affected your future.

    • Here are a few examples from my own life...


  • I learned to play music.


  • I went to college. Three time!


  • I got married.




  • I started playing music in elementary school. I first learned to play the sax and later picked up a little piano.

  • I continued up and through college and auditioned at many colleges. (I almost majored in music in college).

  • I played in a few bands too.


  • I got my associates degree in Arts at BCC.

  • I majored in English at GCU, and that led to my Teaching. I still teach today. (Duh).

  • I later attended RU (currently there) to obtain my Masters in Educational Leadership and Curriculum Design.

  • I moved away from home for the first time and had to become responsible for paying my own mortgage.


  • Umm... I’m freakin’ married.
