It's Official!

04.01.2012It’s official, I am the very first person at the University of Dayton to double major in both Early and Middle Childhood Education and I am very excited about it! I came in my freshman year with a lot of previous credit, so I have a lot of play in my schedules and in my time at UD. Thus, I decided to try to double major, especially since I had shadowed my cousin who taught middle school and I absolutely loved it! So, after talking to the assistant dean of education, we were able to work something out! Yes, the road will be long and difficult and I will have to take some summer courses, but I think it will be so worthwhile. I love both grades so I won’t mind doing the coursework AND it will make me more marketable because I’ll be certified to teach from birth through grade 9. And being marketable is really important in the education field nowadays, especially if I was just in early childhood. I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted on this journey and I’m not sure what to expect since I’m the first one to do this...it’ll be interesting for everyone and I hope I’m able to get some guidance and support. I can’t wait to jump into this with both feet! ...Now I just have to figure out how to study abroad...
