wordle about my life

Blog Post 1

I was born and have lived in Mobile Alabama for all of my life.  Although I have changed my major many times before, I currently plan on majoring in Secondary Education with a concentration in Science and a minor in Social Science.  My parents have lived in Alabama for all of their lives, and they don't plan on leaving anytime soon.  One of the main reasons I want to enter the field of education is because of my grandmother.  She taught bright and gifted students for 35 years and loved.  I always looked forward to hearing stories about projects she did in class.  I might have questioned my career path, but once I heard about a student contacting my grandmother after 25 years because my grandma made such an impact on her life, just let me know this is the right path for me.  I want to make a difference. I love doing anything creative- whether it's online with glogster, wordle or piknik, or whether it's through concrete mediums such as acrylics, scrapbooking, etc.  I look forward to making a difference in the lives of the children I teach.  I want to challenge them to question everything and instill a sense of curiosity in them that I hope will stay with them forever.
