Vote for Stephanie: 2

If I could earn a living doing what I love the most, I would become a teacher. I graduated from MSU Mankato, with a Bachelors degree in Communications. At 18 years old, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I worked for a soda company and I also coached youth lacrosse, which I still do. After my four years of experience with these kids, I have finally found my calling. My passion in life is teaching.
When I become a teacher, I will impact the lives of my students. I will involve all of my students to ensure they all understand the material, and I will add my own spin on learning to make school fun for kids. Specifically, I would love to teach a communications based class like Speech or English. These subjects allow kids to express themselves through creative avenues, but they also provide structure though the required readings and learning objectives.
My purpose in life is to help others. Right now, I work for a financial company where I impact the lives of many people. I work in the estate settlement department, so I constantly need to assist our clients with their needs and questions. Now, I am taking the next step in my career by going back to school so I can touch the lives of other individuals. I am excited to have found my purpose, and look forward to changing the world, one student at a time.
