Future Teachers Academy Prepares Osceola Graduates For Teaching Jobs
Teachers often bring out the best in us. That's certainly what Gabriela Marmolejos' (Ms. M) second grade teacher did.
Just down the hall from Ms. M. is a second graduate of the academy.
"[The academy] It inspires someone and pushes some to go ahead and do teaching because I wasn’t really thinking about this profession until it was offered to me," said Veronica DeJesus, a fifth-grade teacher at Mill Creek Elementary.
Ms. DeJesus implements a lot of the skills and lessons she learned during the academy with her own class allowing her to build great relationships with her students.
"She helps us when we’re stuck on something, or she is just there for us," said Gloria, a fifth grader at Mill Creek Elementary.
Both Ms. M and Ms. DeJesus are starting off their careers strong.
"Mill Creek is like a family to me," said Ms. M.
"Personally, I like teaching students," said Ms. DeJesus. "I know I wake up every day and love doing it."
