My Education Plans for this Career

I plan to attend Millersville University and major in Secondary Education, with a minor in Computer Applications.  I will enter Millersville in the spring semester, (January - May) since I need to work fulltime this summer and into the fall in order to afford the tuition fees.  I will be paying for all my college expenses myself, so I will eventually need to apply for a PHEA loan, Pennsylvania Higher Education Association loan to pay for the rest of my college years.  I hope to graduate in four years with a Bachelor of Science in Education. 


My Dream Job

My dream is to be a high school teacher working in a new school with modern classrooms where every student has a computer connected to the Internet.  These students would be extremely motivated to and interested in learning how to design and publish content to the Internet.  Students would use these computers for research and education seeing the wonderful opportunities for learning, growth and personal development.  The ultimate outcome from my dream job would be the dynamic and professionally designed web sites that every student would create.  These web sites would be an online portfolio demonstrating skills in 14 classifications of computer applications.  That is my dream job.
