As a former nurse I have decided to take the step and change careers so I can earn a living teaching our young minds the importance of tolerance and understanding of others in our world. The only way to change the world to a more peaceful place is to teach understanding of other cultures, religions, races and ethnicities. Through classes in the social sciences realm we can teach our young and enrich their minds. I have taken the leap and changed my degree but my dreams may come to a halt if I cannot find funding. I have taken the step to finish my B.S general studies social sciences but will need assistance to complete my last semester of school and perhaps beyond to get my teaching certificate. I am a mother of five and love to watch them fulfill their dreams and want them to watch me follow mine. I hope to become a teacher of social studies, sociology, and history subjects I get excited about. I love to learn and want to encourage and teach others to follow their dreams through teaching and counseling at the high school level and then later at the college.
