Texas Christian University (History)
My love of teaching comes from my love of history. To me, there is nothing more rewarding than sharing knowledge with others and knowing that they enjoy and appreciate my style and methods of teaching. Teaching runs in my family. My dad taught English. My aunt teaches speech and debate at Bob Jones Academy. My grandmother taught German for thirty-six years at Bob Jones University. My mother taught sewing and fashion design, and she currently teaches private piano and sewing lessons. Once each spring, I deliver a guest lecture to the AP Euro students at my high school. I tell them the story about my grandmother growing up in Europe, how she came to shake hands with Hitler, why she and her family supported the Nazi Party, and why she fled from the Soviets after the war and came here to America. My former AP Euro teacher and his students always appreciate me coming in and lecturing not just about an interesting family story, but also about the real history behind the story. Moreover, what I have talked about has helped these students on their AP examinations. I personally have considered writing a book about my grandmother and this story.
Currently, I am an undergraduate at Texas Christian University. I am a history major with a minor in sociology. I am currently in the middle of my final year of undergraduate studies, and I am on track to an on time graduation in May with my Bachelor of Arts in History. I am also a member of Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honors society. I have traveled the world extensively in the past four years to places such as Japan, the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, and Germany just to name a few. Traveling abroad allows me to see history in action because so many areas around the globe are rich in history, and I have been to places such as Williamsburg, Jamestown, Gettysburg, Valley Forge, Plymouth, Boston, London, Dublin, Paris, Munich, Rome, and Kamakura. I am passionate about history, and I hope to teach others not simply about history, but to inspire them to be as passionate about history as I am through my teaching and interactive skills.
