4 College Sophomore

Academics: My major consists of a lot of reading. Since I am a secondary education minor, it calls for a lot of teaching classes as well so I can learn the classroom and how to treat students once I am a teacher. It has a lot of opportunities because they give us chances to have career fairs, but not only that, we get to travel to schools to observe how a teacher interacts with his/her students in a classroom.
