Florida State University

Florida State University was established in January of 1851. Florida State University is one of the largest and oldest college in the State University System of Florida. At first Florida State was a men's school named Florida Institute. Then in the year 1848 it was a female college named Tallahassee Female Academy. Then, in the year 1947, the college went back to its original coeducational status as Florida State University.

I want to go to Florida State University to get an education as a Kindergarten Teacher. I want to go to this specific college because it's ranked as one of the best. I want to go to this college because I feel that it's very diverse.

Campus Life

When students are not studying or doing classwork, they are relaxing with friends in one of the 14 residence halls. Students are allowed to go to the movies for free, go bowling, and attend one of the universities many athletic and artistic events and are allowed to attend much more. Students also have access to many resources that will keep them healthy and safe like the state-of-the-art fitness facility and on-campus health center.

My Career

I want to go to college to get an education as a preschool or Kindergarten Teacher. I want to teach little kids because I realized that at home I love to help my younger siblings with their homework. I want this career because I love to teach younger children new things. I love the feeling when younger kids learn from the things I taught them. I also love to be able to interact with younger children.

I want to pursue in career in education to get a better idea of the things I can not only teach my children at a young age, but also to be able to teach other children the exact same things. I want to be the one that the children can look to for help with their schoolwork. I also want to be able to do little hands-on activities so that they can learn and get a better idea of what I teach them. I realized that I wanted this career when my little brother, who just turned 6 in February, was born.
