My Goals: I want to be a middle school Spanish teacher, probably like eighth grade. It’s a good age where you can interact with them and they can start to form their own opinions and add substance to a conversation. It’s really when they dive into language and start learning about why it’s so important to learn other languages and how it can connect people.
In the education department, I like how all of the professors have taught before and a lot of them talk about their experiences and what works and what doesn’t work. Especially when you go into the classroom for your observation, you can see the relevance of what you’re learning about. Like classroom management, you can see how a teacher does it or doesn’t do it.
