Catherine Garland

Hello, my name is Catherine Garland and I am a senior at the University of Texas at Tyler studying Interdisciplinary Studies for grades EC-6 with intent to become a teacher. I'm hoping to teach possibly second grade, but we will have to see what the future holds for me! I want to become a teacher because I love learning, and want to help younger students develop their own passion for learning as well. Science is by far my favorite subject, and one of my goals is to try and generate interest for my future students in several different disciplines. Personally, I have always taken a huge interest in biology as I grew up around a wide variety of animals, and I enjoy working with plants through my gardening as well. Herpetology in particular has a special place in my heart, and I have three reptiles I currently take care of, with hopefully more to come someday. I might even keep one or two in the classroom if I can.
