Ashley Cook/ Cary, IL
History Secondary Education- Class of 2022
One of the things I like best about Illinois Wesleyan Educational Studies is the way that the classes and professors prepare teacher scholars to teach diverse students and advocate for social justice. I like that the department teaches us about how to best serve students of different backgrounds and strengths.
I am passionate about teaching because it gives me the platform to teach young minds about the world and enable their strengths. As a teacher I can help students learn about history in an engaging way and help them learn how to be good humans.
