About Maxine

Hi! My name is Maxine M. I am currently an undergraduate student at Southern and my major is English. When I graduate I plan to either get my M.F.A. in Creative Writing and teach at a collegiate level or work with juvenile delinquents. I am very passionate about English. I have taught a second grade and middle school religion class for a few years and have been a tutor and mentor as well, so I work well with kids. Many people would describe me as kindhearted, selfless, and patient. To see someone succeed with my help in whatever they struggle with would definitely be one of the most rewarding feelings. I also have an immense love for creativity and I try to use it as much as possible.

I've been playing guitar and singing for about 5 years now and I am mostly self-taught. I write for Southern's newspaper and have been asked by many professors if they would be able to keep some of my projects. One of which was a video project that my professor now featured for one of his English classes. I have also left a copy of one of my short stories as well with another professor. And my freshman year English professor uses a little book I made for the class as an example.

I mainly wanted to become a teacher because I want people to want to learn; I want to make learning fun. I've taught myself Spanish vocabulary words by writing songs. I use my creativity as much as possible and I believe it's an essential part of the learning process.

I try to incorporate creativity as much as I can into the learning process. I think you can make learning anything really fun. I can bring my guitar along or we can write poems to make learning difficult subjects a little easier. Let's learn in different ways! Let's make learning fun :)
