What do you hope to do/accomplish as an ACE Teacher?

As an ACE teacher, I want to support my students on their journey of discovering their passions and helping them grow as individuals during some of the most formative years in their lives.

What experiences at your undergraduate institution helped shape your decision to pursue teaching as a possible vocation?

When I joined the Cognition and Learning in Adolescent Development (CLAD) Research lab I learned about the Education, Schooling, and Society minor. After taking classes in this minor and being exposed to different education topics, I realized that teaching is an important vocation that I feel I could pursue in order to help make an impact on students' lives.

How do you hope to grow in your experience as an ACE Ambassador/Intern?

As an ACE Intern, I want to learn more about how I can help and support others during important life decisions, particularly when deciding about joining the ACE program.
