“If you were to teach as a career, what would you teach?”
Health, of course! For those of you who don’t know, I am studying Health Education here at Winona State. I love all things health. Health encompasses every single part of a being and of this world. There’s 7 whole dimensions of health! I want everyone to live their best life and that starts with health. This doesn’t mean just eating your fruits and veggies while getting in your daily exercise. Health is knowing common environmental issues, global burdens of disease. Health is understanding your thoughts and how they affect your body. Health is taking action to improve yourself, your community, the world. The 7 dimensions of health are to healthy eating and exercising like psychology is to knowing when you’re happy and sad. There’s so much more!
I strongly believe God has placed me here, given me this mindset. I used to think I just liked school, I had common sense. I now know that I have a passion for this profession– I’m eager to educate others and I can’t get enough out of my classes. I like to laugh a little when people say they fell asleep in class; my content is so interesting, I don’t understand others sometimes. I pray that God gives me a big heart to reach all the stubborn children I will teach someday. I pray that if my content doesn’t make them think twice, then my pure-hearted actions will.
