My school is great because it has a fun environment, but at the same time, everyone works hard toward their goal. Most people have a strong sense of school spirit and pride which is important to the overall morale of the school. A lot of the people there have good integrity also. The school itself is nice. The campus is clean and students strives to keep it that way. Even those who are not a part of environmental groups are seen picking up trash and throwing it away or recycling it.

Personally coming into utsa as a freshmen, my only main goal was to pass my classes and to graduate in 2019. I didn't really even think about maybe trying to do work on the side to earn money for my personal needs. It wasn't until I officially moved into my dorm and started living on my own did I start to realize how much getting a job would help me not just for that moment, but for my whole life in the future after i graduate college. I then started to take my courses of education more seriously my second semester and got the chance to experience being around kids at a school. I've come to discover that I truly do feel (after helping the teacher as an observer & assistant) I have the patience, kindness, and gift in connected with the children and in teaching them. I would have never really discovered that it is my calling in being a teacher if it wasn't for utsa. Not only did it help me discover my hopefully future job, but it also helped my mom when she attended utsa as a student too. Now she is teaching as a pre-k teacher in her hometown where she grew up. I also feel that utsa in general give you the help and guidance in leading you into finding the right job that suits you and our work skills. They give you almost all the resources you need in achieving your goal at finding a job and not just one to work at, but one that you truly are satisfied to working at everyday.

Overall, I really had such an interesting and fun experience involving the courses and the professors at utsa. Each classroom was different! I had all types of size classrooms from a small class to huge auditorium classes. I like how each teacher had a different way of teaching the subject material like they aren't all the same. Each professor taught their class in their own unique way that they feel and asked their students in what ways helps them individually learn more from their classrooms. Coming from a private school that had the same students in the same number classroom size, I felt this whole new transition was definitely one that I come to like more then the regular day to day classroom size basis. I am personally more fond of small classes, because then I can connect better with my teachers & they can get to know my personality and not be seen as just another student in their classroom. I also though like the big classrooms cause i have less distraction from my peers in being close to them if they continue to talk during the classroom session. I feel that overall the professors are very friendly and the courses assignments are hard yet challenging enough for me to overcome it. Each course and teacher are liked or disliked by each student differently, so it just comes to how the student sees the class.
