Meet Benton Kodet, a junior English Education major from Northfield, Minnesota. Below he explains that, for him, the choice to become a teacher and attend Saint Mary's, wasn't really a choice at all.

Benton Kodet
"I think that if you want to be an educator, it isn’t something you choose. It just is what you are supposed to do. I always knew I wanted to become a teacher, I just didn’t admit it to myself for awhile. Finally, I decided to become a teacher because I knew it was something that I would enjoy doing for the rest of my life. I don’t know why I exactly chose Saint Mary’s. I visited a couple times and again, just knew that I was going to go here. I like the small size and how close it is to home, but I think I would have chosen Saint Mary’s no matter where it was located."
