Bright Horizons Bright Futures Scholarship Amanda
Amanda wants to give children the best education possible and make school a positive experience. As an Elementary Education major at Delaware Technical Community College, Amanda is planning on graduating in December and then pursuing a dual Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Special Education at Wilmington University. Amanda attended three different elementary schools as a child, and the teachers that helped her throughout her parents’ divorce is what inspired her to teach. Amanda believes that “if early childhood and elementary school teachers work hard to make school a place where students can have fun and enjoy themselves, yet still gain core knowledge, students will have the motivation that is necessary to continue their education up through college.” Amanda’s instructor writes, “I can say with confidence that her drive, ambition, and thoughtful consideration of the teaching career will allow her to become a dynamic teacher when she has her own classroom.” Congratulations Amanda!
