The biggest driver for me to come to
Endicott is really the internship programs.
I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do
and that was the thing that I kind of
thought about and accepted that
that was going to give me the experience
in whatever field but was also going to
show me and kind of help guide me
through the experience of
this is for me or this isn't for me.
Also, when I looked at Endicott
I fell in love with the campus.
I really felt comfortable and
it felt like a community that I
could be a part of.
I absolutely think that Endicott
has given me the tools to
My freshman year, I had the
opportunity to travel with the
School of Education to
Reggio Emilia, Italy for the
Reggio Children's Conference.
My junior year I went to
Copenhagen, Denmark and studied abroad
for a full semester where I was studying
child development in Scandinavia.
So those two experiences were the
forefront of my education in terms of
helping me become to the better teacher
and impacting my philosophy
because both of those philosophies
really strive for the whole child
which is not only to be students
but really citizens of the world.
I'm absolutely proud to call myself
an alum of Endicott.
When I reflect on my first tour of campus,
I really am in awe of the place
that I've come from and
where I am now.
I think I've grown a lot in the
past four years.
I feel ready to go into any classroom setting
and take on the role as a teacher,
be confident in my skills and ability,
to command a class, and
to teach students.
I don't know where I'd be professionally
or as a person without the support
and guidance that Endicott
has given me.
