Ever since I was a little girl, I have been passionate about teaching. Unlike a typical nineteen year old, I have already taught in two classrooms. I volunteered to be a teacher for Sunday school at my church for preschoolers. It was a liberating experience to bring new knowledge to the young children’s minds. It truly has taught me the rewards and challenges that teaching can bring. I was enrolled in a course at my high school called Introduction to Teaching. This class assigned me to an elementary school, where I was an assistant teacher for a fifth grade classroom. I want to become a future educator because I want to be the person that can positively change a child’s life.
I believe I deserve this scholarship because I have overcome numerous challenges. My hard work and dedication was recognized by the colleges I have applied to, but the tuition is expensive. My aspiration in life is to educate children and be a role model for all students. I believe I will make a difference in the education field. I have become an active part of Aurora University by joining clubs, applying to become a resident assistant, and working on campus. Through the dark and hopeless times of my life, my teachers were the ones I looked up to. They are my heroes, and I will follow in their footsteps to become an excellent teacher.
