Chelsey Belmer, Master's in Education at University of Arizona
Since I can remember, it has been a dream of mine to become a teacher. After getting my Masters in Education through the Teach Arizona program, I plan on becoming a high school history teacher and passing on the amazing educational experiences I have to future classes. Someday I hope to further my education and get a doctorate degree in order to teach at a higher level and impact more lives while encouraging my students to think outside the box and be creative and involved in their learning.
