I guess I'll go ahead and get the introductions rolling on this forum. You know, "be the change" and all that.
I'm Brady, and I'm a bit of a nerd. I hail from Wilkes County, right down the mountain. I'm currently a junior, going into the wide wide world of Math (secondary ed). I'm a Teaching Fellow, I play trumpet in the Marching Mountaineers, and I'm also serving as VP of the ASU Math Club. I am notoriously hard of hearing, but I pride myself in being a good listener, although sometimes that tends to make my voice unheard. I'm looking forward to learning as much as possible with you folks this semester!

"The best thing for being sad is to learn something... That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you." - T.H. White's The Once And Future King

-Brady

P.S.: Introduce yourselves! I hate going 4 months with a group of people and not being able to put names to faces.

Hey hows it going my name is Terreyl Williams, and im from Durham, NC. I have to say that this is interesting seeing how this forum will come into play with the classroom. I've been on a few forums and i've also made a few of my own so maybe this will be a tool that i could use in the future

Hello! My name is Stephanie. I am technically a senior but because I changed my major to elementary education only about a year ago from anthropology I am a year behind for graduation. :roll: I am from Statesville which is only a little over an hour away. I am looking forward to this class and all the new information that I will have to take away with me at the end of the semester! :P

Hey! My name is Elizabeth Laubach and I am a junior at App. I am an elementary education major with a minor in dance from San Diego, California. I love going to the beach and the warm weather so winters in Boone suck for me. I hope to learn a lot from this class in the sense of how to deal with situations that arise in the classroom that I may not be ready for.

I'm Leigh. I'm a junior majoring in Adaptive Curriculum in Special Education. I'm hoping to teach and do research at the Frank Porter Graham Center back home. Home for me is Chapel Hill, NC. I really enjoy hiking, reading, music (current music flavor is Bon Iver), and hanging out with my family and friends. I manage a summer camp back home, which is a lot fun and something I miss.

Hey everyone! I'm Audrey and I'm a junior Spanish Education major with a psychology minor. I won't actually be able to do anything cool with the psych minor but psychology has always fascinated me so I figured, why not? Anyway, I have a passion for foreign languages, especially Spanish. I find traveling to be really interesting and exciting. In my free time I love to go running, and I also like to cook, read, hang out, etc. I've enjoyed our thoughtful conversations in class so far and I hope they'll continue!

Hey Everyone! I'm Lauren Smith. I am super senior here at App. This is the beginning of my 6th year of college. Yeah, that's what happens when you change your major your senior year. I went from Biology Pre-Professional at North Greenville University to a Bio. Sec. Ed. major here. I just got married back in June, and married life is wonderful! I am originally from a pin point on the map of SC called Andrews. It was so small that when my town got their third stop light we had a town celebration for it! I have lived in Greenville, SC for 4 years, and now I live in Lenoir! I look forward to getting to know everyone and enjoying the class with you! Later! :D

Hey!

My name is Sarah Grzesik. I'm a Junior Teaching Fellow here at ASU. I am an elementary education major and plan on teaching fourth or fifth grade. My concentration is in psychology and anthropology, so I hope to predominantly teach social studies. Some of my favorite things to do are play soccer and just be outside in general. I'm originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin and love the cold weather. That's pretty much all there is to know about me :D
