Brooke Pigman

Hi, My name is Brooke Pigman and I am a senior at the University of Northern Iowa. I am originally from the small town of Minden located in southwest Iowa. After student teaching and graduation, I would like to find a teaching job in a more rural community rather than urban because I really enjoy the closeness of the small town feel. Growing up, I was involved in 4-H for 11 years where I did many different projects and even raised and showed cattle. In my free time today, I love to watch sports, spend time outside, and bake. I am excited to partake in this semester of Science Methods and fuel my love for science even more!
