All About Me Chelsie Harris
Introduction My name is Chelsie Harris and I’m an elementary education major with a minor in Geography. I am married and have two young boys. Teaching has always been a dream of mine ever since I was little. I would play school with my brother and younger cousins where I would be the teacher and assign them my homework from school, (probably wasn’t the best idea since the oldest one was four years younger than me). 1+2=3
Personal interests My life mainly revolves around my family and doing things with them. So my interests include- reading sewing shopping walking to parks and occasionally camping and hiking.
Family life Having a family and going to school can be difficult at times but it is worth it for me to get a good education to be able to take care of my family.
Interests in Education When I decided I wanted to get a minor, I wanted to get it in something I could use everyday and something that isn’t focused on as often in schools, so that I could bring attention back to it. I decided on Geography. Geography is a fascinating subject and something that you can continually learn new things from it. The Amazon in South America
Reasons for becoming a teacher! I love working with kids. It’s amazing to see a child's face light up when they learn something new. Having children look up to you as a role model and learn from you is a great accomplishment and feeling. I always learn something new when I teach a class or work with kids. Education
