Joseph Tiwold, a junior at Kutztown University and graduate of Northampton High School, joins us on this episode to reflect on his 7 weeks of observation of 9th grade classes here at Emmaus High School. He is preparing to become a teacher and he shares his perspective as a student who is still in classes, while not too far removed from his own high school days. He comes from a family of teachers and shares his passion for entering the classroom at the end of his program. Topics from the episode include: * Joe's 9th Grade Experience and dealing with a season-ending injury in his Freshman wrestling season * How that injury impacted his friend group during that transition to high school * His own 9th grade science class experience * His observations of being an educator in a 9th grade classroom * The biggest differences he notices from his own 9th grade experience to his educator experience * The steps he still needs to take to be a teacher He closes out the interview giving his best answer to future employers about why he would like to be a teacher.
