  2. 2. ▪ Major: Elementary Inclusive Education ▪ Year: Senior ▪ Hometown: Menahga, Minnesota ▪ Graduated High School: 2011 ▪ Why Teaching? I was the youngest of four boys and I always looked up to my older brothers. My oldest brother became a teacher and I admired that. I was coaching elementary basketball during high school and had so much fun working with younger children, so I decided to take up a profession I know I would enjoy doing.
  3. 3. ▪ Favorites ▪ Music: Rap ▪ Sport: Football ▪ Food: Sushi ▪ Color: Blue ▪ Hobbies: ▪ I enjoy being active and playing sports. ▪ I love being around family and friends and spending quality time with them. ▪ I like reading books that I can learn from. ▪ I like watching movies that take place during the 1920’s. I am fascinated by that time period.
