I enjoy being outdoors, running, and engaging with children. I enjoy science experiments. I currently attend Southern Illinois Carbondale elementary education program while working at Starbucks part-time and occasionally babysitting when needed. Teaching has always been my passion and I was inspired to go into this field by family members and previous teachers. I am excited to have my own classroom in the future!

2.     How is that cutesy song/ mnemonic we learned (and then relearned with only 8 planets) limiting/stifling our students’ understanding about the number of planets in our solar system? (My Very Educated Mother Just Serve Us N…)  This song only focuses on the 8 planets rather than all the ones after those 8 planets. Students think that is the end of the solar system since that’s the only ones...
