Recipients of the James Patterson Teacher Education Scholarships shared their passion for cultivating a love for reading in their students. Each scholar has a story to tell, a goal to strive for and a passion for teaching (You might call this: the Patterson passion). Madelyn is a Patterson Scholar for 2017.
Madelyn is a junior pursuing her passion to become a teacher. She is very excited for her future as a possibly second grade teacher.
“I chose this path because I want to impact children in a positive way and help them become their best selves. I am currently a member of KDPI where I am able to collaborate with likeminded individuals and am interning in a first grade classroom.”
