Confidant and Friend
I am with two of my students who see me as not only a teacher, but a cool, older buddy. It helps them let out some things that they can't always express. (plus our cute fried CoCo Jr)
Every time I go to my field site I get one on one time with each student as I help them with questions about assignments.

My Future as a Teacher
I have already taken the PSAT twice through my school along with a Pre-ACT. Just recently I went to Fossil Ridge High School to take my SAT and L.D. Bell High School to take my ACT. I plan on taking each test two more times depending on my scores.
I am only a junior so my list of colleges is still a little too long than it probably should be but the colleges I have considered and plan on touring are University of Texas in Austin, Stephen F. Austin University, University of Houston, Texas Tech University, University of Oklahoma, and University of North Texas.
I have already visited University of Texas and have set dates to visit Texas Tech and Stephen F. Austin in the Spring. My dream school is UT because I love the people who attend, so nice and welcoming, and I love that its in the city. Austin is my favorite place on earth because of the vibe it gives and how confidant the people who there are in themselves.
