Elementary Education Graduate

Student teaching has helped me so much. I’ve had the opportunity to be in a 6th grade math class and a 4th grade class while at WSU. The students and the curriculums were both so different, and I learned valuable real-world lessons from both experiences. I can’t wait to put those lessons to work!
