I am currently a student at Georgia College and State University. I will be graduating in May of 2013 with my Bachelors in English Creative Writing. I have been a senior mentor with our school's Early College program for the past two school years where I have been teaching creative writing and other English lessons to a group of seventh grade students. They have taught me to be very flexible and creative with my teaching approach. I have learned that just because one method doesn't work, that is not a signal to give up. My students have prepared me to be persistent and to never give up or move on until the subject is thoroughly learned (not just memorized, actually learned). I strongly believe that any one can learn anything, and that there is always a way to make learning fun and for a student to enjoy it.
