Name: Becca Robinson
Major/Minor/Level: Language Arts Major/Mathematics Minor/Senior
I am from Huntington Woods, Michigan, but currently live in Ypsilanti.
I have been going to Eastern for four years and have one year
left until I complete my degree. My dream job would be to teach
either in Ann Arbor or in the inner city of Chicago. I love the
city life and always being active. I play water polo on Eastern
Michigan University's club team, which is a lot of hard work, but also
very enjoyable. During my summers, I work at a camp called
Tamarack in Ortonville, Michigan. I have been there for 16 years
and it is my home away from home. For the past three summers I
have been the supervisor of Fishman village, which is home to over 200
4th and 5th grade girls. It truly is the greatest place on earth.
I will be student teaching in the winter semester of 2010 and
then graduating at the end of that semester. I would love to
teach upper elementary, specifically fifth grade because I have worked
with this age group in many different settings and find them to be
enjoyable, yet a challange because they are just starting to find who
they really are. Ever since I was seven years old I have always
wanted to be a teacher. I
believe that it is a calling to be a teaching and I feel that I have
been called to teach. I know that there will challeneges and
bumps in my journey, but if I can make a difference in just one child's
life than it has all been worth it.
