I really want to teach students in order to help them have happy futures. This requires teaching more than just content areas. In special education the opportunity to impact students' lives is even greater because the manner of teaching is more individualized.
What do you love about MSU Denver?
The professors offer true examples of teaching strategies since they have worked in the field before teaching. Many of the assignments are completed using the skills that will be required of us as teachers.
How do you see yourself making a difference in your community?
I plan to teach at a school in or near my own neighborhood. They are Title I schools and it is important for those students to see people in their own community with college degrees in order to fully realize that it is something they can achieve.
What is the importance of this scholarship to you?
This scholarship is important because I am going to be so in debt after this that every bit helps. These small scholarships are usually easier to get because they are generally only open to a limited group.
