This is Deisy, an 18 year old senior in my Future Teacher Internship class. 
Deisy was born in Texas after her parents came to the United States from Mexico and will be the first in her family to graduate high school AND will be a first generation college student. 
Deisy plans to study to become an Elementary Teacher. 

Q: The ideal teacher is...
A: Someone who inspires students to be someone better. Someone who has plenty of joy to share with their students. 

Q: Why do you want to become a teacher?
A: I want to shape the minds of the young who will be our future. I want to teach them and build a friendship they will never forget. 

Q: What is one thing that you wish teachers today knew?
A: That school is the place where students want to learn and have fun. Students have various family situations that don't always allow students to focus at school. They have school as their safe and calm environment.
