Major/Degree(s): Elementary Education

Why did you choose education?

I have always loved working with children. I knew that I wanted my job to be around children but never knew what. I teach children part-time how to swim and found that I loved doing it, which helped me decide on becoming a teacher and pursue Elementary Education with a TESOL certificate.

What do you love about ECU?

I love that there are so many activities around campus the whole year. There’s so much to do and something for everyone to enjoy.
