Daishane Crittenden

College: University of Missouri-Kansas City
Major: Early Childhood Education
Occupation Goal: Early Childhood Teacher

"Since I plan on already having an internship in an urban school district before I graduate in May 2021, with the knowledge I will gain from both UMKC’s educational program and the numerous classrooms I’ll be observing, interacting, and teaching in, I believe I will be able to become the best Early Childhood teacher that I can be.  What makes me even more excited, is that now with BooksFromBekkah, my freshman year can be spent focusing on making those goals happen, instead of applying for a job just to pay for books!"
