Q&A with Tori

How has INSPIRE or the School of Education helped you grow as a future teacher?

INSPIRE, as well as the School of Education, have provided a plethora of events and resources that have helped increase my knowledge about educational topics that I had not before thought so critically about. I have grown so much and feel more confident in my abilities to be a future educator because of their enlightenments.

What has been your favorite experience as a member of the INSPIRE so far?

My favorite experience as a member of INSPIRE is the trip we went on to Puerto Rico in the summer. We were able to visit many different schools and have some amazing cultural experiences. This trip was truly unforgettable.

What influenced your decision to become a Peer Leader?

I decided I wanted to become a Peer Leader because I loved the community of INSPIRE and the opportunities it provides. I was not yet ready to leave INSPIRE and the community that it fosters, and I wanted to be a part of fostering the next years community as well.

INSPIRE cultivates a community you cannot get anywhere else. It is helpful especially being surrounded by other education majors to help with homework and sharing that common interest.
