I am currently a student at UMW and hope to graduate by 2021. I am part of the College of Education and am majoring in Elementary Education and Psychology. Since the time I was a little girl, I have always wanted to be a teacher, yet I was so intrigued by what psychology had to offer as to why children behave the way they do, how they think, and how it all relates to their performance as a student. My hope is to one day become a teacher for the younger grades and possibly be able to specialize as an ELL teacher because those types of students have a special place in my heart. But at the end of the day, I want to be someone who makes an impact on children’s lives as they grow up in this crazy world.
