Practice Blog: Who am I?

A Little Bit About Myself


•My name & where I am from.

•Why did I chose USA?

•Why did I chose teaching?

•What does it mean to be an educator in the 21st century?

My name is Andrea Fust, and I am from Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Ocean Springs is a coastal, art community, and is most likely the reason art and being on the water are my two main interest. Although, in high school I danced and was on the swim team. I lived in Ocean Springs until fall of 2010 when I moved here to Mobile, Al. I decided to go to the University of South Alabama (USA) because it is close to home, and I love how pretty the campus is. When I first came to USA, I was a biomedical sciences major and planned on going into dermatology. However, I later decided I would be better suited in the field of education.

My mother was a teacher, and every morning I would ride with her to work before my school started. I would help her around the classroom for an hour before I had to catch the bus to my school. After school, I would make worksheets for my little brother and sisters, because I always wanted them ahead of their class. So it is safe to say, teaching is in my blood, and I believe it is what I am meant to do.

Being a teacher in the 21st century means that technology can act as an aid during lessons. Information is now limitless, and students can have access to an endless supply of knowledge.
