Christina Nolasco, Junior at Springville High, is studying to be a teacher at Art City Elementary. After interning at Art City Elementary for a term, Nolasco said she was still interested in this line of work.
“Yes, I would still like to be a teacher. It is super fun going and helping students. I don’t think I will teach elementary because it’s not really what I am looking for,” said Nolasco.
Nolasco has been interested in this line of work for quite a while; she has always been good at helping people understand concepts so it would be the perfect occupation for her. Nolasco recommends this line of work to others as beneficial because “It’s awesome. I had the chance to actually teach some of the children and that allowed me to see how I teach,” said Nolasco.
Some of Nolasco’s duties include helping students, teaching lessons, and assisting the specialty classes if needed.
One fun experience Nolasco has had at her internship is, “I went to P.E. with them and we played with the parachute and had so much fun. All of the students loved me, and I had a really fun time. She plans on attending Brigham Young University to earn a degree and teaching certificate.
