I am a teacher at Chinquapin Elementary school. I teach 8th grade science and social studies, I have been teaching for 24 years, 12 of those years have been at Chinquapin.
Why did I want to be a Kenan fellow? I want to increase my knowledge base and to learn about an area business. I believe in being a lifelong learner, if I can learn just one thing new to take back and connect with my students it will have been worth it.
The goal of my internship is to be able to take back first hand knowledge of a working hog farm. This will help connect with some of my students that work on the family farm. I also want to learn about all of the opportunities that this company has available my students.
