Teacher Education Deber Scholars - San Diego Mesa College

I would love to teach 2nd grade students, any subject in elementary education.

I decided I wanted to join the teaching field when I was in high school and a teacher had a very big impact on me emotionally and academically. She taught a class called peer mediation which helped a lot in mental health and self esteem over all. When I started high school I never really enjoyed it as much as when I joined this class and having a teacher who had supported every student really helped me realize I wanted to be that teacher for my students in the future. 

So far my most positive experience would be not only the friends I have made in the same career but also new job opportunities and the experience I have working with kids excites me and pushes me everyday to continue no matter how hard life can get at times.
