Why did you choose to attend WCU and/or your area of study at WCU?

I fell in love with the campus and felt like it had the best program for my major.

What do you plan to do after graduation?

Hopefully get a job and continue my studies by getting a Masters and eventually a PhD or EdD.

What is a typical day like for you?

I wake up at 6 am so I can get ready for student teaching. I get myself ready head downstairs and then drink some coffee and leave my house by 7 am. I arrive to the school and get myself prepared for the day. I teach the classes I have to then do work or grade anything I need. I get home at 3 pm. Then I eat dinner with my family and we spend time together. I usually head to bed around 10 pm

What advice would you give to a prospective WCU student?

What is your favorite memory so far as a WCU student and/or in our college?

My favorite memory at WCU has been meeting so many different people from so many different backgrounds.

What's the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn't learn from your resume alone?

I speak 3 languages.
