Welcome, Jazmyn Neal!
Jazmyn Neal is a student intern from ECU. She is working in Ms. Gold's Kindergarten class.
1. Tell us about yourself. Where are your from, hobbies, interests)
I am originally from Ohio. My family moved to Winston-Salem, NC almost 10 years ago. I graduated from West Forsyth High School. In high school I was in the marching band my junior and senior year. I was apart of the colorguard (flag, saber, and rifle). Some of my hobbies and interests include listening to music, watching movies and shows on Netflix, reading books, and spending time with my friends and family.
2. How did you decide to become a teacher?
I decided to become a teacher after I had changed my major about three times. I love animals so I had my heart set on being a veterinarian, but then I realized that I would never be able to put an animal to sleep (I'm tough but I have a very soft heart). So then I switched to sociology because I love working with people and thought about being a social worker, but realized quickly that wasn't for me. I finally settled on Elementary Education because I love kids. My first time in a classroom and I knew that I for sure wanted to be a teacher. Helping students if they are struggling or just teaching them period felt very gratifying and I really enjoyed helping the students.
3. What are some of the positive memories you have about elementary school?
My best memories from elementary school would be with my fifth grade teacher Mr. Freeze. Just his name alone had me excited to be in his class. My sister and I loved Batman growing up, so she was super jealous that I got to be in someones classroom that had the name of a villain from her favorite cartoon. Mr. Freeze was an amazing teacher. He really cared about us and wanted us to succeed at everything we did. He was always encouraging us and helping us if we were struggling in something. I hope that I can be a great teacher just like him and leave a lasting impression with my students in the future so that maybe someday one of them will decide to be a teacher!
4. What advice do you have for our students who are planning to go college?
Advice to future college students would be to STUDY!!! You can't get anywhere in life unless you try your hardest and do the best you can. Studying will help you get where you want to be in life. Whether its a doctor, lawyer, teacher, or any other career you chose. When you get to college don't let anyone pressure you to chose your major right away. Take a variety of classes so that you can find what you really want to do for a career. You should love what you do and you can't love something if you've never even learned what that something is. I can't emphasize enough that you should be happy and feel satisfied with what you choose to do in college and I wish you all the best of luck in your search for a fulfilling career.
5. What do you like about SWS so far?
Everyone has been so welcoming to me!! I am just so overwhelmed with the warm welcome that I have received. Everyone is great! They are all ready to give advice if I ever need any ( and I'm sure I will!!) and I can't express how happy I am to feel welcomed here. I know that this will be a great experience and I am looking forward to getting to know everyone and become part of the SWS family.
Thank you so much for welcoming me!
