Secondary Mathematics Education
Where are you now?
Huey L. Porter Middle School, Canton, MS
Why did you chose MSU?
I chose MSU because of my love for Mississippi, the proximity to my family, and the wonderful education opportunities that I was able to pursue there.
How did the MET Program enhance your experience at MSU?
The METP gave me a wonderful community that I was able to connect with immediately. That is so important in college, especially when you first get there. Through MET I was able to go to seminars, panels, and countless other activities that have helped me to develop my identity as a future teacher, and gave me confidence and insight. Also, it was such a blessing to be able to focus on the important things, like classes and community, instead of feeling suffocated by student debt.
What were some of your on-campus involvements outside of METP?
I volunteered with the equine therapy program at MSU. I loved the people and the horses, and I learned so much! Also, I had a part time job over at the vet school.
Please share a funny moment/interesting fact about yourself.
I love to play the flute when I can find time and space!
