After high school, I plan to attend UNG where I am currently Dual Enrolled. I am thinking of majoring in Special Education in hopes of one day becoming a Special Education teacher. Work-Based learning has helped me towards my career goal by giving me a chance to see what it is like to work with children and it has also provided me with many great opportunities that I would not have gotten outside of Work-based learning. From my job, I have learned important social skills when dealing with children, parents, and co-workers. My job has also helped me choose what I wish to major in in college. Without Work-Based Learning, I would not have found what I love to do!
