I want to be a Childhood Education teacher in an elementary school.

Context: I want to enter the Education field and I believe you can teach a lot to young minds who are always exploring.
College: At the moment, I am attending Laguardia community college and next fall, plan to start in Queens College in my specific major.
Other Education: n/a.
Activities: I am always looking for opportunities to volunteer. I am apart of Phi Theta Kappa at Laguardia. Also, I am a peer advisor at the moment where I am learning/teaching students who have questions regarding their classes, major, etc.
Job Experience: I have done a summer job in the Early Childhood Center in Laguardia. I also have retail experience and internship experience (web designer).
Soft Skills: Some soft skills I need for my future career are patient, time management, and active listening.
Hard Skills: Some hard skills I need for my future career are learning Strategies, reading comprehension, and monitoring/assessing performance.
Other: I want to do something in the technology field afterwards I am done with my Childhood Education major. However, I want both of the majors to connect each other, I am thinking of something like Educational Technology. I am not sure which Cuny college offers that or if I can double major them. Also, I am interested in the English field as well and thinking of doing journalism as a double major if possible with Childhood Education. Thank you! #college #college-major #technology #journalism #majors #double-major #childhood-education

I am sure I want to be a high school teacher and basketball coach. I am unsure (at this point) what subject I would like to teach, though. Although Spanish was my favorite in high school, journalism was always another topic that seemed like an appealing career as well. Also, as I've been more able to see and understand the election this year, becoming a government or economics teacher sounds interesting as well.

Context: This year I was chosen to be captain of the cross country team, which is something I thoroughly enjoyed. I was able to motivate and teach them, while still being able to laugh and have fun. This is what led me to this decision of wanting to teach and influence kids and become a high school teacher. As for being a basketball coach, I played for 3 years and am completely in love with the sport, and have always loved the idea of being a coach since day one.
College: I have already applied to 8 schools: Sacramento State; San Francisco State; California State University, Monterey Bay; Cal Poly San Luis Obispo; California State University Long Beach; California State University Fullerton; San Diego State; University of Nevada, Reno. I have gotten into 3 so far: San Francisco State; University of Nevada, Reno; and CSU Fullerton.
Other Education: Since I want to be a teacher, I know I would need to receive credentials of some sort. I am not sure of the process behind that though.
Activities: I would definitely love to study abroad. Anywhere on the planet would be extremely amazing and I know I would think of the trip as such a valuable experience for the rest of my life. I would also like to participate in some running club or perhaps an intramural league for basketball, and maybe a sorority.
Job Experience: N/A
Soft Skills: Communication, creativity, self-motivation, leadership, teamwork
Hard Skills: I would love to be at least somewhat fluent in Spanish before going out into any career I choose.
Other: N/A #teaching #journalism #coaching

Are you able to work towards college of pharmacy credits while in school for your bachelor's?

I am asking because I would like to be a pharmacist, and I know that there is a lot of schooling involved. I was wondering because I heard of pre-pharmacy tracks that could be done while getting your bachelor's. #college-major #pharmacists #pharmaceuticals...

Are there any classes that a high school student can take in high school that would benefit them if they are thinking of becoming a judge?

I'm a sophomore in high school. I heard that my school has a Criminal Justice class. Would it benefit an individual to take this class if they are thinking of studying law? What other classes can a high school student take to prepare for future? #college-major #law #criminal-justice #justice...

Does commuting strip a person of their college experience?

My sister who is a dormer has always lamented to me how important it is to dorm and move away from home. She emphasized on the key phrase "college experience." Instead of listening to her, I am opting to commute because of the internships available for my major in the city. I am wondering if...

What qualities best work with being a marriage and family counselor?

I am not that great at giving people advice but I have a really strong passion for wanting to help marriages or families in trouble. I'd like to do whatever I can ( ethically) to assist these individuals, couples, and any others to be fulfilling but right now I'm just not strong in that area....
