Q: Who has been your most influential teacher?

A: My most influential teacher throughout my whole schooling career would be my third-grade teacher (Linda Franken, who taught at Jackson Elementary School in Elmhurst, Ill.). She really went above and beyond to make sure all her students fully understood the information.

Q: What was your favorite subject?

A: My favorite subject in high school was psychology because I enjoyed the teacher and thought it was really interesting.

Q: What do you miss about high school?

A: I was involved in drumline all four years and loved it. I definitely miss that the most from high school. 

Q: Can you tell me about your collegiate experiences?

A: I went to Ball State University after graduating high school and majored in psychology. I choose this major because I really enjoyed the subject in high school and would eventually like to get my master’s and council kids. I unfortunately was not able to be involved in any clubs during college due to also having to work full time, but I met a lot of awesome people through work.

Q: What are you up to now?

A: I live in South Bend and work for the Dept. of Child Services. I am in the process of planning a wedding and will get married in September.

Q: Do you have any advice for younger students?

A: I would like to tell younger students to take it one day at a time and not to rush things. High school and college fly by and you will have so many amazing opportunities, so enjoy them.
