“I initially wanted to check to see if I enjoyed teaching overseas because I liked traveling and I wanted to see if I enjoyed teaching as well and I found my passion for teaching in the peace corps in West Africa where I taught English for two years and I thought I would transition back to the states and sort of carry that and continue that as my career, teaching, so that’s why I’m here now.’

“I would say what I like best about teaching is just getting to know the students and how crucial an element of teaching is to know who’s in the classroom with you and just making the content and material for each class relevant to your students based on who they are as individuals so that’s my favorite part of it it allows for a lot of creativity I would say.”

“This is my last semester, I graduate from my program in May. I’m very excited for that because next school year I will have my own classroom and I will be a full time teacher crossing my fingers, but so far student teaching has been awesome. I love it.”
