Maggie Zentner: Senior History Education and Theater

“I decided to be a teacher because when I was in high school and would help others with homework I would see that sort of spark when they would get — it felt so rewarding to be the cause of that. I know that sounds kind of selfish but that’s how it all started. When I started working at Upward Bound as a tutor, it was a whole different experience. The students there have taught me way more than I have taught them. I feel as an educator you are constantly learning something new about your students or you’re learning how to approach new things and new opportunities or new experiences. It’s never going to be the same thing every day. Either it’s really a good day or a really bad day but regardless a student is going to put a smile on your face.”
