Where are you now? Richland High School

Tell us about yourself. I am from Jonesboro, Arkansas. In high school I had a friend who asked me to help first and second graders after school to learn to read better, and that was my first experience with teaching. The program only lasted about two weeks, but afterwards I was asked by a school counselor to help seventh and eighth grade kids in math, since it was my subject. I did that most of my time while in high school, and it inspired me to want to teach. I had always had teachers help me out along the way, so I thought it only seemed natural I give back and help others on the same material I needed help with. I am thankful for Mississippi State and am excited to do what I have wanted to do for a long time.
