Why did you decide to come to MSU and pursue a degree in education? I decided to come to MSU to pursue a degree in education because teaching is something I have always been passionate about, and I could not find a more welcoming environment to get my teaching degree at anywhere else. 

What do you want people to know about you? I am a huge nerd: even though I am getting my degree in elementary education, I would pursue a degree in every subject if it only took four years. Four years is the status quo, however, so I am going forward with my elementary education degree and getting my 7-12 math endorsement along the way!

What activities are you involved in on campus (outside of METP)? I am extremely involved with the Baptist Student Union and also am a student in the Honors College.

What advice would you give high school seniors that are getting ready for college? I would tell high school seniors to enjoy high school while it lasts. Despite how much you hate it now, you will never have another time like it in your life, even when you are a college student with your whole life ahead of you.
