Why Mount Union?
I chose Mount Union for the small and close campus community! I wanted to be at a school where I knew I had support from my professors and would see a familiar and friendly face everywhere I went. I love Mount Union because it gave me some of my best friends and prepared me for my future. Everywhere I go, having been a student at Mount Union makes me stand out, especially as an education major. The program is wonderful and I feel as if my professors/classes and the organizations I had the opportunity to be a part of have prepared me for my future.
My extracurriculars helped prepare me for my career by providing me with opportunities to lead in an organization and be part of a team. I had the opportunity to learn a lot about myself, working with others, and making choices that will better an entire group of people. I recently graduated, so I haven’t gotten alumni involvement opportunities through campus yet, but I am excited to!
I haven’t started teaching yet, but I’m so excited to get in the classroom and use what I have learned to make a positive impact on the lives of my students. What I love the most about being a teacher is the opportunity to be the person in my students’ lives that they always know is cheering them on and has their back. I would love to continue teaching in the same district throughout the duration of my career. I look forward to opportunities to take on new roles and that education has so many different paths you can take.
