Elementary School Teacher
Interdisciplinary Studies B.A.; Minor: Secondary Education
Why this campus?
Besides having a moderately high acceptance rate, this campus shows the most promising tunnel to which I want my career to begin at.
Being an Elementary School Teacher
Prepare materials and classrooms for class activities.
Read books to entire classes or small groups
Meet with parents and guardians to discuss their children's progress and to determine priorities for their children and their resource needs.
When it all began
I had always dreamed of being a scientist or astronaut ever since I was a young girl. However, once adults began to besieged me with questions about my future I became uncertain. It wasn't until my Sophomore year in high school I was positive to become a teacher. I had other nudges to the possibility of being a teacher, but it wasn't until I began to tutor in the elementary schools that I knew I absolutely wanted to be a teacher.
Making a Difference
In my personal philosophy, I strongly believe that in order for the future to be better for us we must start at the root. I want to teach children the importance of learning and how fun it is. What I most dearly want is for students to feel the same exhilarating sense I felt whenever I learned about the unknown.
