At CIA, it was important to me to maintain at least a B average. To do that and also have a busy athletic schedule was trying, but I managed to stay the course.
Upon graduation in 2010, I chose to attend Nashville State Community College. My goal was to pursue an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Development. With this degree I hoped to further my education as a preschool teacher. While at school, I continued to work part-time at the Gordon Jewish Community Center as an aftercare teacher.What did WSN/CIA do for you?
Currey Ingram Academy gave me opportunities to address my learning differences as opposed to what other schools would have done for me. As a result, I have been able to continue my education to the next level. The small classroom sizes served me well.What has been the most interesting and exciting thing you've done thus far in your life?
The most interesting thing that I have probably done since graduating from high school would be taking many different cruises with my family and seeing new areas of the world. I have a wonderful boyfriend, Shawn, and new puppy named Blossom. I have also purchased a new car, which means I will get to go to all the Vanderbilt baseball games starting soon; and, I’m making frequent trips to the Nashville Predators hockey games!Where did you enroll in college? Why did you choose that college?
I enrolled in Nashville State Community College here in Nashville, Tenn. I chose that college because it was close to home, and it gave me the credits I needed to get the degree I was seeking.
