"What other profession allows you to touch the hearts of hundreds of people, while preparing them to be some of the greatest and most influential individuals in the future of our country and world? To quote words of wisdom presented by one of my professors, 'Teaching isn't rocket science, it's much, much more.' SMU has given me the opportunity to recognize my passion for a profession I know I want to spend the rest of my life doing. Aside from the gorgeous scenery I wake up to every morning, it's the unique opportunities and supportive community SMU has offered to me, that make me realize I can't picture spending my college experience anywhere else!"
