I'm a soon-to-be graduate from UF in Medieval Studies and Geography. I also intern for an education technology startup housed in the Florida Innovation Hub here in Gainesville. Though I've worked on multiple research projects regarding Dante and medieval spatial thought, but I see myself teaching in the most immediate future. This summer, I am entering the English ProTeach program at UF in order to learn how to help students understand, analyze and create different kinds of texts. Although I may consider becoming involved in education research later on, my current goal is to become a highly-qualified English teacher. I built my undergraduate career on understanding how medieval poetry reflects the spatial thought of the time period, but now I am interested in answering another, related question—how can the knowledge I built be useful and relevant to the rapidly changing world around me?
