College Expectations: “I will be attending Providence College in the fall … I was pleased to learn that the Elementary Education and Special Education major at Providence College is among one of its most popular majors.

Inspiration to Become a Teacher: Amelia shared that her mom, once a teacher and who she admires, was on of the reasons she wishes to be a teacher. She hopes to follow her path and become the best version of herself. Amelia explained that the past few years she has become more patient with others and has learned leadership skills that will be vital for any teacher. Amelia also shared that she struggled at times in school but the support from teachers, tutors, and her parents who helped kept her on track. She shared “I hope to become the teacher who students feel comfortable around and one who they find supportive and encouraging.” Amelia knows that some students are more difficult than others, but she is up for the challenge and believes she can encourage students to be the best versions of themselves in and outside of the classroom. Amelia was described by one of her teachers as “a ray of sunshine” and “super positive, a great student and a friend to all……She has a heart of gold and is so determined to be a teacher…. She will make a great teacher someday!”
