Hello! Nice to meet you, I am Jennifer and I am a first year student at SFU! I am a little shy and introverted but once you get to know me I can be really outgoing. I love working with kids and some of my hobbies and interests include photography, playing tennis, and watching movies.
How I Discovered the Program
Through my high school teachers that had graduated from SFU.
Why Faculty of Education
I chose the Faculty of Education because I wanted to become a teacher (specifically specialize in Special Education) and be able to build relationships and connections with the Faculty students and staffs because they all seem so warm and welcoming.
My drive and passion to become a teacher inspires me a lot to continue my education. I'm currently taking EDUC 100W and just from that course it had opened my eyes about the education system and opened up a lot of doors to what kind of paths I want to take in the long run; and that's just an introductory course. I'm excited to meet new people in my faculty and take a lot of courses that will continue to inspire me; it's really fun to do.
Instructor of Note
I still haven't got to know a lot of the staff and profs in the faculty, however I have met some really nice mentors and other students, and it's really enjoyable to work with them because they have a lot of passion and love for the faculty and everyone around them and I think that's extremely cool. A lot of the 3rd and 4th year mentors are pretty funny too.
Best Learning Experience
I think the best learning experience I've had so far is with my EDUC 100W course. It's a course that had never impacted my life so much before, I got to learn so many things that perked my ears and thoughts, I can't even describe it in words. It was just honestly an amazing experience.
Prospective Student Advice
I don't have enough experience for me to be able to say much about it, but I know it's a really welcoming place where you can learn so much not just through academics but learn about life, your life, your goals and aspirations and be able to make great relationships with the people in the Faculty. I think it'll become like your second home; I don't think anyone coming in will regret it, cause I sure don't.
