Jennie Thomas
My name is Jennie Thomas and I am currently a dedicated student at the University of Houston Downtown seeking a Bachelor's of Arts degree and finishing up my last semester. I will be graduating with a major in Interdisciplinary Studies in December of 2018. I was originally born in Massachusetts but I was brought to Texas due to my family and I have always wanted to go back. I am an independent, hard working, assertive, open minded person. I have a passion for education and I know that someday my job in this field will be better than I could ever imagine. As a young girl I knew I wanted to be a teacher but at the time this career was frowned upon. It was not until later, once I became an adult that I did not let anyone tell me what my passion was anymore and I went for it. I will never regret making the decision to follow my heart and pursue a teaching degree because it has been the best thing I have ever done.
I believe that education is the key to success and this would be a great opportunity for me to show my inner strengths and abilities. I am known to be very kind, understanding, and helpful in times of trouble. I am very keen on punctuality, and attendance is very important to me. I do well under pressure and I know that I can work well in the teaching field very well, as I am gaining experience already. Problem solving is one of my strong suits and I know that my organizational skills will work well for me especially when having to work towards a Master's degree. Many times people may say that their parents are their motivation to getting through life and making it where they are today but I have to say otherwise. My parents have gotten me here, that is for sure but they also did not think I would make it to apply for a Master's degree. I am not here to show them I can do it, but to show them that with hard work and diligence anything is possible.
As a young girl since that seed was planted into my head I never really thought of continuing education until I recently had a strike of hope. I am now student teaching and observing in Elementary schools and I remember just thinking to myself that although I am not these children's teacher I am making a difference, so why wouldn't I strive for success? I used to long to go to such great schools but I was told that I would never make it, but that ends now. As an uprising teacher I know that I can make an impact in children's lives everyday and for me this is one step closer to achieving that goal. I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason and I think this is my time to do something that I did not think I could do. It may sound silly to others, but Massachusetts is my home and it will be forever. As a person that believes in herself, I think that if I want to someday go back home and also get my Master's degree I can do it with no questions asked. I have to believe in myself before others can believe in me and I am ready to do something greater.
