Student at USC Aiken majoring in Secondary and Middle Level Education
I am a senior at the University of South Carolina Aiken. As a secondary and middle level comprehensive social studies education major, along with certification to teach Gifted and Talented (GT), I am passionate about encouraging and supporting students, insomuch that equity within the classroom is of vital importance to me.
Currently, I am conducting undergraduate research within the field of education. I hope to learn about how often secondary and middle level educators incorporate current events within their social studies classroom.
I desire to one day work with a national or international organization that promotes educational equity. Such organizations include Teach for America, Peace Corps, and the United Nations. In order to do so, I will also be obtaining my Master's degree in an area related to international relations or nongovernmental organizations.
