Cassandra Jones/ Elk Grove Village, IL
English Literature Secondary Education- Class of 2022
What I like best about Illinois Wesleyan Educational Studies is that the program is
designed to get students experience early, often, and with foundations in mind. Every
classroom experience is aided and guided by professors, course concepts, and cooperating
teachers. In addition, the program values a variety of perspectives, experiences,
and interests. As a student athlete, I appreciate that this program provides for me
the ability to play lacrosse and study education without missing out on any time in
or on the field.
I want to teach so that I can pay forward the skills, opportunities, and support I
received to every student that comes into my future classroom.
