    Cheyenne's Bio:
    Hello hello, my name is Chey! I fully admit that I am an over achiever and a slacker simultaneously. I am really involved in social justice on campus, especially the Indigenous Student Alliance. I love cats and science fiction. I come from a big family so community and connections are important to me.

A Change in Plans

Coming to college I had one very clear goal, become a teacher. I started out thinking math education was for me, but soon found out that social studies was my passion. Within my first semester of classes I had changed my major. This only delayed me a little bit, a few summer courses were now necessary. I had always envisioned graduating in 4 years, teaching within 4 months of graduating. That was my long game.

However this past week I ended up dropping a few courses. Sometimes it’s necessary to lighten your burden. It’s important to give your all to a few things and not half effort to many things.

This means I will be pushing my student teaching back at least a semester, at most a year. This is frightening because it is not what I had planned and I like to stick to a plan. I know that even though it feels like an extremely big change, it’s only a slight hiccup in the grand scheme. I will just have to roll with the punches and see where this leads me.

Wish me luck!
