I am currently in the process of establishing the Wittenberg Writer's Guild, a 创意写作 club meant to bring the creative minds of Wittenberg together under a united community!

威滕伯格: How and when did you realize you wanted to be a teacher?

摩尔: I realized I wanted to be a teacher when I formed a 创意写作 club for my high school, 西马斯金格姆高中. I loved teaching others about different forms of writing, 诗, 作品制作方法, 头脑风暴. I had mentioned my interest in becoming a teacher to my family, the story has been going on ever since.

威滕伯格: How has the 教育 department prepared you for the future?

摩尔: Wittenberg's 教育 department has helped me take my incoherent and sporadic thoughts about teaching and solidify them into an idea that has always been present in my mind: Teaching should help students better themselves. The role of the teacher is to be their guide to doing so, no matter what background there may be.

威滕伯格: What are your goals after graduating from Wittenberg?

摩尔: After graduating, I wish to work toward higher 教育 and teach abroad in different cultures. Creativity comes from many sources, I believe that if I am to be a successful teacher, I should work toward expanding my repertoire of experience. I also wish to become a published author, one who can inspire those who feel to be at their lowest. 

威滕伯格: What does the Cornett Teaching Scholarship mean to you?

摩尔: The Cornett Teaching Scholarship is both a blessing and a call to action. Without this scholarship, I do not know if I could have continued my work. But just as it helps me continue my work, it demands I strive further - not for my success, but for the success of my future students.
