I attend The University of Texas at Tyler and I am majoring in Elementary Education. I will graduate in December 2020 with my Bachelors degree. After graduation I plan on teaching at a school in the East TX area because that is where I am from. The grades I am interested in teaching is 3rd - 5th grades. I want to be a teacher because I enjoy teaching and helping children grow academically. My decision to become a teacher was influenced by my academic struggles in school and my 2nd grade teacher helping me succeed. My academic goals are to be successful and learn the content being taught. A hobby of mine that is science related is planting flowers during the spring and summer time.
