UMass Lowell (Liberal Arts)
I am a recent graduate of the University of Massachusetts Lowell. I have a bachelors in Liberal Arts with concentrations in English and Education. I hope to go back to Umass Lowell this fall to attain my masters in elementary education. I have had the pleasure of being a nanny to three children under the age of 10 for the past seven years, and I hold them accountable for my pursuit of becoming a teacher.
Outside of school, I love to read! Some of my favorite authors include, Nicholas Sparks, J.K. Rowling and Katie Heaney.
Part of my requirements to become a Massachusetts qualified teacher involves taking and passing four MTEL tests. So far I have passed the reading and writing subtest and the general curriculum test. The purpose of the reading and writing subtests are to test the understanding of grammar, proofreading skills and use of correct vocabulary.
General curriculum tests the basic understanding of vocabulary, simple science and literature.
