Major: Elementary Education
Why CMU? I chose CMU because I knew it was known for having such an amazing education program that really engaged their students and focused on helping them get a teaching job straight out of college. I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember, so choosing a school that just made me fall more in love with my major was a definite sign that I belong here.
Why Elementary Ed & Leadership? For those of you who know me, you know that I have such a passion for kids and helping them. When I was little I used to always play in my room like I was a teacher. So many of my teachers growing up had such a huge influence on my life and I want to be able to be that influence on other children’s lives. I chose the Leadership minor because when I joined LAS(for more info on LAS check out the page about it, here), I learned how important leadership skills are in jobs and I want to have as many of those skills that I can have to help me become a better person and future employee. With this minor, I could also potentially become a principal or leadership teacher.
