I GRADUATED WITH my bachelor’s in teaching from the Tech Teach program in August 2021. In the fall, I was able to start a job here in Roscoe. The program offered me a lot—CEN took care of the costs so I could study, and it let me stay local and work here in the district. During the pandemic, you could stay home and work on these courses and still get your degree.
My students have their own lives. They’re different from me. I want to know what’s going on with them. I want to know what makes them who they are.”
As I go into my classroom, I definitely want to find a way to intrigue the students, hook them in, and get them excited about what they’re about to do. My students have their own lives. They’re different from me. I want to know what’s going on with them. I want to know what makes them who they are. I carry that with me as I work with these kids.
What gives me hope is the fact that I can wake up tomorrow and give whatever I’m doing another shot. If I didn’t do well yesterday, I have today to try again. I have today to make it right. Because when you give up, you’ve lost for sure. Every day is a new chance. Every morning I wake up, I can try.
