Special thanks: I want to thank all off the staff and professors in Lengyel hall! Your positive, energetic, and caring attitudes and personalities made going to class everyday so easy. I need to also thank my parents for their endless support.
Favorite UMaine memory: My favorite memory at UMaine was Jesse’s Team Sports and Invasion Games class. During this course, I found myself as a teacher. It helped me find the confidence that I lacked as an educator. It’s the class where everything just clicked together for me!
