Genuine, optimistic, enthusiastic
Most important thing you’ve learned so far in your major:
Successful and effective teaching is not easy. Developing lesson plans that will engage students requires a lot of thought and creativity.
I’m most proud of:
My decision to transfer to DePaul. DePaul’s urban location and social awareness were exactly what I was looking for in a university. My experience has exceeded all of my expectations.
Favorite places at DePaul:
The Office of Academic Enhancement (OAE) and the Dean of Students Office in the Student Center. These offices are great resources.
Love going to school in Chicago because:
It's literally our classroom! As part of my curriculum, I have gone on architecture tours, enjoyed the opera and visited many different museums. And since I’m an education major, I observe teachers and students in Chicago Public School classrooms. These experiences have encouraged me to explore the city even further.
Knitting and photography
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. It was the first book that made me cry.
Best kept secret about DePaul:
The track on the top floor of the Ray Meyer Fitness Center. It's surrounded by glass windows, with great views of the Chicago skyline to distract me while I’m running.
