Interdisciplinary Studies, Middle School Education

Leslie of Texas is earning her Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies—4-8 Generalist—with plans of becoming a middle school science teacher. Working as a pre-k aid in her children’s elementary school allowed her the opportunity to discover her true passion of teaching. Her greatest inspiration has been working with and teaching behaviorally challenged boys who have made academic strides while in her care. “I am so proud of them and the progress they made. Because of them, I knew I needed to become a certified teacher and help more students like them.”
