Intro Post

Hey, while I'm here, might as well post one!

1.Name: Emily
2.School: Rowan University
3.Year: Alumni (wooooooooo!)
4.Major or field of study: English/K-12 Subject Matter Education
5.How did you know you wanted to be a teacher? I figured it out I think when I was in 7th or 8th grade. My teachers had a strong influence as well, and my Language Arts teacher was so wonderful. I wanted to be like her. High school definitely helped sway my decision toward becoming an English teacher because reading and the whole subject in general was so exhilarating for me. :3
6.In three words, how would you describe your teaching style? ballsy, tough, respectful
7.What is your best teacher quality? I really pushed my 6th graders during student teaching. I did activities with them that even my cooperating teacher didn't think was possible.
8.Any tips? I think what my one education professor said once is the best advice I can offer: "Students rise to your lowered expectations."
9.Why did you join this group? I think it would be fun to connect to teachers and teacher candidates. I like to talk about my teaching experiences, and it would be nice to discuss it with people who would actually know what I'm talking about! XD
