Learn about Brooke:
I am a sophomore and I plan to major in Psychology and minor in Education. After I graduate, I want to become an elementary school teacher. Many of my teachers from elementary, middle, and high school inspired me to become a teacher. I hope that one day I will be able to inspire and be a positive influence in the lives of my future students. Besides working with kids, I also enjoy singing, playing piano, running, and knitting.
This blog was written for my STEM class; we were to choose an issue of both social and scientific importance. This blog addresses the issue of body image and eating disorders and how it should be addressed in society, as well as the elementary classroom. Since elementary students are so impressionable, I believe it is important to educate students on issues such as these. Besides being a valuable life lesson, this topic allows for the incorporation of mathematics, language arts, and art.
