What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?

Right now, I am most excited about starting a future in Elementary Education. If there's one thing I've been most passionate about in my life, it's been children and how they develop. Creating a loving relationship with a child is so rewarding because they endlessly love you back. I spend most of my time with my nieces and nephew and it has been very eye opening. I believe that having these opportunities throughout my life is what brought me to want to be a teacher, specifically to children. This is why I'm looking forward to learning about children and teaching in a more detailed fashion. I am also excited to spend my fifth year in college student teaching in an elementary school.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I love spending time with my family and friends hanging out or going out to do fun things. I am very interested in being able to travel a lot more once I am out of high school. I've also enjoyed being able to give back to my community and I hope I am able to do that more often in the future.

Katelynne's Thank You Note

Thank you very much for the scholarship! It really means a lot to my family and I to receive any amount of money for my college tuition. This was very generous, and I am very grateful to be chosen for this scholarship.
