OBJECTIVE

I am majoring in Elementary Education (Pre-K-4) at Grove City College and my objective is to


be a teacher who is flexible with the times, culturally relevant, caring, and knowledgeable. Not
only do I want to be knowledgeable, but I want to convey this knowledge to my students in an
engaging, fun, and creative way. Throughout student teaching and my field experiences, I
have found ways to integrate technology, creativity, and art into the instruction in order to
design memorable lessons. My passion is to use my artistic abilities to engage students in
learning and in the end, create positive, long lasting relationships with students.
