Hello! I am studying as a pre-service teacher at the University of Texas at Tyler (go Patriots!) and will graduate in 2020. I will be qualified to teach at the EC-6 level, but I have a soft spot for teaching kindergarteners. I am energized by the idea of experiencing learning about our great big world alongside my young students. When I was young, I remember being fascinated by animals. I would read kids' animal encyclopedias time and time again and had dreams of becoming a veterinarian someday. Still to this day, I will watch wide-eyed every planet earth episode. The beauty of our planet and the life within it is astonishing to me.
