Becoming a teacher is a natural profession for Brian Schulz. In high school, he did a student partnership where he helped out in a kindergarten inclusive classroom. “I wanted to be able to help students learn and provide quality instruction,” he said. Now Brian is on the track to being a special education teacher.
Something Brian loves about the education major is that educators can see their students improve throughout the year. “I love that I will be able to give back to students with the things I have learned through my college education and my personal experiences.”
