“I had always wanted to become a teacher, and my other love was reading - so voilá! - 英语 teacher created. I completed my student teaching semester at Kearney High School and Bryant Elementary in Kearney. It was by far the most important experience I had during my college years. Nothing prepares you to become a teacher like actually getting in there and teaching. Honestly, I wish student teaching was an entire year because there is so much to learn in just eight weeks.”
