Class of 2018

IdLS major with a Math and Science concentration, Middle School Education minor

Manassas, VA

I am a sophomore here at JMU, with plans to become a Middle School math or science teacher after graduation. I am in the 5 year master’s program at JMU so I can work at the Planetarium for an extra year!

I first realized I wanted to work at the planetarium when I took a class trip. I had only been in a planetarium once before that and don’t remember much about it. I was amazed when all the lights were turned off and we could see so many stars on the dome. I instantly knew I had a passion for these stars and being paid for my passion would be an amazing experience.

I grew up in Manassas, Virginia where I was an avid sports player. I played baseball for many years. I also played football and ran track all through middle and high school.
