People of Central

On her thoughts for a future in education:

I’m majoring in social studies and minoring in history and english for secondary education. I really want to be a fun and exciting teacher for subjects that a lot of students find boring, especially in high school. I know a lot of random historical facts that I get excited about. For example, I’m obsessed with King Henry VIII, which may seem weird, but I hope to someday use my random passion for history and random, weird facts to get my future students excited about school.
