She is 86 years old and a retired English/Philosophy teacher. She knew I wasn’t into my first major, which was nursing like my mom and my sister. She helped me put into perspective how much I love helping children and always had a way with them. </li></ul><ul><li>I am looking forward to starting the College of Education at GVSU in the fall of 2008. </li></ul>Quit
