As in the words of Rita Pierson, "Every kid needs a champion."  I am glad that you want to take the challenge of championing for a child, teen, or even an adult as a future educator.  

Being a teacher is more than just teaching, but encouraging and influencing the future generations into being true to themselves and becoming that champion for someone else. In my courses, we will not only learn the basics about children and others as we go through the lifespan, but how everyday situations and life is enhanced by how we learn, how we think, how we move, and how we relate to others.  Those skills/knowledge are taken and applied through the Senior year in IPET Practicum.  Your goal is to leave high school with a set path for the future knowing that you are in the right place for your talent.  Lets make you someones champion!
