I'm about 3 weeks away from receiving my teaching credential, and 3 days away from my 26th birthday.
My mom recently dug up some old pictures and work from when I was in elementary school, and it turns out that becoming a teacher was part of the plan all along.
I went to USC, studied fine art, became a graphic designer, traveled across the world and back, and now I've found my way back to my 1st grade vision for myself. 20 years later, things seem to be coming full circle.
I know that all of my experiences have led me to becoming the best teacher I can be, and I have so much more to experience and learn as a teacher. This is only the beginning.
Hi, my name is Alexis Markavage. I'm a student teacher and a Multiple Subject Credential candidate at Dominican University of California. I graduated from the University of Southern California in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in graphic design, but now I'm continuing my education to work in education. I hope to work as an upper elementary school teacher.
