Life on Campus

Kaitlyn spends her time on campus recharging from the stresses of being a student. Life as an education major and juggling classes as well as job shadowing as a teacher can take its toll. She is not involved with clubs on campus, but the nice thing about college is that it’s a blank canvas for you to create what you want with it.

In her free time, she loves to watch the show Good Omens, starring David Tenant and Michael Sheen. She also enjoys eating fried pickles late at night, from the late-night snack truck at Etown.

Future Plans

Kaitlyn is an education major at Elizabethtown College. She migrated over here from the greater Philadelphia area to pursue her education. As a Bluejay, she decided to be an education major in order to become a teacher.

She is currently in her junior year, which means during her semester, she is able to work as an assistant teacher in schools around the area. Right now, she teaches middle schoolers at Manheim Central Middle School and it’s really cool to hear how she influences the minds of the young. Education is an extremely important role in our society.

She hopes to teach English after she gets a job teaching, since it’s her passion. Once she graduates, she will hopefully return to the Philadelphia area to teach.

Teaching is Kaitlyn’s passion. She said that she will teach until she dies because it’s what she loves. She plans on using her teaching position to eventually go back to school and obtain a master’s degree.

She said she just wants to do anything that will make her happy and fulfilled. She will take whatever opportunities are thrown at her to achieve this.

Other Factoids

Kaitlyn also might write a book. As an English major and buff, she loves reading and writing. One of her favorite writers is Shakespeare. We went to the showing of Romeo and Juliet together and it was amazing. She takes a class about analyzing Shakespearean plays and dramas and she really enjoys it.

If Kaitlyn were an animal, she would choose to be a bat because they are nocturnal and have echolocation. In addition, they live in caves and hibernate.

She appreciates their symbolic relationship to Halloween as well, since Halloween is her favorite holiday.
