21-year-old Sarah Glen of Bemidji, MN, is currently enrolled in the Distance Learning program at Mayville State University!  Sarah is studying Early Childhood Education, and will become a preschool teacher.  “I chose to be a teacher because I have always loved being around kids!"  Said Sarah, "The more I looked into it, the more I realized how great it would be to impact early learners by creating a welcoming and supportive classroom for them!”

Sarah is excited to be graduating next December, “after graduation, I cannot wait to get a teaching job in a preschool classroom in one of the schools I have been gaining experience in. It will be great to finally put everything I have been learning into action!”
