5 » The Number 5

5 is my number as that is the number of classes I took with Dr. Alison McCartney in the Political Science department. Her classes led me to discover a passion for teaching, that I didn’t know existed in me. Dr. McCartney has to be one of the toughest most rigorous professors at Towson- her classes were more challenging than many of the graduate courses I have taken. As a result her classes pushed me to do better and to hold myself to a higher standard. Her Civic Engagement class was one of the most interactive engaging classes that I have participated in. Part of the class was to research an international organization and prepare a presentation and activity to engage a high school class with. I ended up at Lansdowne High in Baltimore County and taught a class about the World Trade Organization. I loved teaching the class and learned a ton by preparing a lesson to teach the students. I'm also very pleased to be able to support programs like this through Founder's GOLD at Towson. Since then my rejuvenated love of learning has led me to grad school which I completed this past spring and is taking me to law school this fall. I want to continue to learn and explore my interests both academically and professionally. It is clear to me that I would not have achieved as much if it were not for Dr. McCartney’s devotion to her profession. Ultimately I want to take that same passion for teaching and knowledge into the classroom as well, and I hope to instruct and inspire students as effectively as she does. That is why 5 is my Towson number.

06118» The best years at Towson

I enjoyed the best years, semester wise when I was attending Towson. My former apartment mh (millennium hall) I loved and had good times, small parties, crazy occurrences and great roommates all through my time there. It was my home away from home. Thanks to Towson and mh for all the great memories.
