on common app, it gives you an option for elementary education and teaching, so it makes me think we actually would go in as that if we got accepted. but honestly, idk if you could even get into any of these programs your freshman year or if it makes sense. be honest. be harsh. thank you. :)tell us what makes stanford a good place for you
Stanford is a gorgeous campus with outstanding students and the best professors. It is a place where the students can grow both educationally and professionally. Every program at Stanford is amazing, but what attracts me the most is the teaching program.
I have been drawn to teaching ever since I began volunteering as a counselor at sixth grade camps. I realized working with children is what brings me joy, and there is no better way to work with them than by helping build the foundation for the future of our country through teaching.
Stanford's School of Education is what will help me succeed in becoming an excellent teacher for my future students. The new Teaching English Learners Studio program is also perfect because I want to focus on teaching English learners. As a child growing up in an only spanish-speaking home, I didn't know any English; ergo it was difficult to understand my teachers and classmates. Once I was transferred to a program designed for English learners, however, my comprehension increased and after four years, I was finally transferred to a regular English classroom. I want to help English learners succeed like my teachers helped me, and the teaching programs at Stanford will help me reach my potential to be the best teacher I can be for both English learners and non-english learners.
Stanford's alumni are among the most successful professionals in the world. My generation is the future, and a good future stems from a good education. Every student at Stanford is prepared to build a successful future for themselves and for society, and Stanford will give me the tools to partake in that mission.
