The Cormier Honors College motto is that “It’s not more work; it’s different work.” With scholarship we think about it more to do with our academics and what we learn as scholars. Why I consider myself as a scholar is because I constantly look to gain new knowledge on different subjects. I continue to pursue additional information to further my knowledge. Some qualities of a scholar is that they have good communication skills, they contribute to the community, they are curious to learn, and they are creative thinkers. Also, I believe that a scholar is someone who isn’t afraid to ask questions.
Currently, I’m studying to become a kindergarten teacher. I strive to have my future students taught to grow up and to become scholars. I want to teach them not to be afraid to ask for help when you need it. I feel if you foster a loving and nurturing environment in a child’s earlier years, then this will prepare the child for the future. It would also continue throughout their years in higher education and their life outside of school.
