Hello and welcome to my educational portfolio. I am in my professional semester at Concordia University Nebraska. In May of 2018, I will graduate with a Bachelors of Science in Secondary Education with emphases in English and English as a Second Language, a Lutheran Teaching Diploma, and a music minor.
My career goals include teaching English literature at the high school level and coaching a cross country or track team. I would love to work towards a Master's degree in English and teach literature classes at the college level. An avid reader and writer myself, I am passionate about sharing the joy and potential of literature with young minds, and am excited to work with young adults as they emerge in their growing beliefs and individuality. I especially love the challenge and opportunity of working with English language learners to develop literacy, a crucial component for their success.
