Hello! My name is Claire Eubanks and this is my third year at Appalachian State. I’m majoring in History/Social Studies Secondary Education and minoring in English.
As a child I always loved stories. As I grew older, I realized that the story of humankind – the story of how we came to be where we are today – was the most intriguing story of all. In short, that’s how I ended up a history major.
After I graduate I plan on joining the Peace Corps. I love to travel, but I want to serve others and experience different cultures in doing so. I also intend on getting my master’s degree at some point.
I’m taking this class to become more confident in my teaching skills. I struggle with anxiety, and I hope that this class will allow me to become more comfortable with myself and the subject I hope to teach. I’m looking forward to gaining the tools I need to become a successful history educator.
