In a society where more college students are passing on a teaching career, CCU senior Michelle Pitoscia is chasing one. The senior from Murrells Inlet is enrolled in the Spadoni College of Education for a major reason.
“I really want to become a teacher to make a difference and help build this next generation of doctors, lawyers and even more teachers,” Michelle explains.
In fact, Michelle is so passionate about making a difference that she wants to become as qualified as possible in the shortest amount of time. The New Jersey native will complete the Degree in Three program this May and then transition directly into the Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Instructional Technology program. Before you know it, Michelle will be leading a classroom with an advanced degree in her back pocket. How about that for a #CCUPositiveImpact?
“Coastal has definitely given me the opportunities to grow as a leader and I know that is going to help me become a teacher-leader in the classroom,” Michelle says.
In addition to her growth within the Spadoni College of Education, Michelle has built her leadership skills by serving as Tri Sigma’s vice president for new member education and by becoming involved with Coastal Carolina Catholics. Describing herself as caring, Michelle takes the initiative to help those around her who might be going through a tough time, becoming as involved as necessary.
With her final semester as an undergraduate now underway, Michelle wants to focus on improving her teaching skills and building her confidence in the classroom. We wish her the best as she completes this current Coastal chapter and look forward to her starting the new one in June.
