“The age of a middle school student is one the most life shifting ages they will go through, I get to be a part of it. Hopefully, I can be a small part of helping them get through it. The classes I took to prepare me as a teacher had a major impact on my decision to continue into education. As a freshman, I was already in classrooms observing and interacting with other educators. I believe I was in a classroom almost every semester of my college career, observing or participating in the instruction in various school sizes and areas.”
