Secondary Mathematics Education
Where are you now?
Southaven Middle School, Southaven, MS
Why did you decide to pursue a degree in education?
I love seeing the light bulb going off in someone's head when they finally understand something. I've always wanted to help others learn.
Why did you choose to come to MSU?
MSU had the best education program, and I didn't want to pass up the opportunity of joining METP. The atmosphere at MSU was definately one of family and home. It was pretty easy to fit in around there.
How did the METP program enhance your college experience at Mississippi State? I would say that it made me attend more social events than I would have otherwise.
What were some of your on-campus involvements outside of METP?
I was the chapter president of Active Minds and the chapter secretary of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.
What do you want people to know about you?
I'm very dedicated to my work. I strive to do my best in all aspects of my life. I hope that I'll be able to give back as much as I have been given.
What advice would you give to entering freshmen or students finishing up high school?
Find your passion. Don't choose a major just because of the paycheck. Pick a career that you will enjoy doing!
