Honors Degree, Elementary Teacher Education
Points of Pride: My development as a teacher. I feel as though I really found my voice and hit my stride while student teaching in Delaware schools. The College of Education’s elementary teacher education program is outstanding; I truly felt supported every step of the way. I was lucky to have incredible mentors, both in the teachers whom I worked with and my field instructors from UD. Getting recognized as an outstanding student teacher by CEHD is an achievement I couldn’t have accomplished without my incredible support system both inside and outside of the schools. I have learned so much about myself throughout college, and student teaching showed me a whole new side of myself. I feel extremely confident in all that I was able to and will continue to do to help my students and to integrate myself and my ideas into the school community. I can’t wait to have a classroom of my own, and one day host my own student teachers as well!
