For juniors and seniors, the future is definitely a popular topic. College and career choices are all in the back of our minds. Of course everyone in the school has different directions in which they are going in terms of their futures and professions, but suprisingly, many students here at RAHS have chosen education as their major. One of these very students is Jen Schoell, a senior here at RAHS. After graduating from college, Schoell plans on traveling to Spain to teach English as a second language. “I really like helping kids, and English is my strongest suit,” said Schoell, when asked why she decided to go into education.
It seems as though students are going into careers such as the medical field or the education field where they would be able to be around people and help them. Sadly, the education system has lately been attacked by politicians leading to the cutting of teachers and their budgets. What a shame this is when it’s teachers who are trying to help us prepare for our future. Although this will not affect Schoell when she is teaching overseas in Spain, she is still concerned about the educational system and where it will stand, especially if education is becoming such a popular field.
