My intended level of teaching is in the primary grades, preferably first or second grade. I am student teaching in a third grade class at DJ Montague Elementary School. I have always been interested in becoming an elementary school teacher. During my time at Virginia Tech, I explored various majors and disciplines, but I always came back to wanting to teach. I want to create a fun, exciting, and comfortable environment for my students. I want them to be interested in learning and in school. Most importantly, I want my students to realize the importance of what is being taught in school and to do this I must connect learning with how they can use it in the outside world. My biggest hope for teaching is that students will enjoy learning and want to continue learning. My biggest fear is classroom management and having an unorganzied classroom and, of course, parents.
