About the Author

Hello. My name is Patrina Allen. I am currently a sophomore at Old Dominion University. I am a self-proclaimed lover of teeth majoring in dental hygiene and minoring in secondary education. I love my friends, being with them help keep me sane. I enjoying doing anything that makes me smile be it going out and doing something extravagant or just sitting around with my friends. I come from a big family, and although it not the best at all times i would not want it any other way.

Philosophy on Education

Im going to be cliche and agree that a mind is a terrible thing to waste. Without the proper education or tools it may be hard for someone to survive. Its tough in the "real world", but by using the correct skills you can make it easy.

i think that a classroom should be welcoming and exciting. I believe that learning should be made fun. A way to go by doing that is having lots of student-teacher interactions. Having a teacher who is "cool" and can relate to you, i think makes kids want to go to class more. Also not sitting in one place doing the same thing over and over may help a class be more exciting.
