Hey Everybody!

My name is Jessi Stark and I am from a small rural community, Kress, which is located in the Texas Panhandle.  I grew up on the farm where my dad plants cotton, wheat, and milo.  I loved and enjoyed being there every minute.  My mom teaches eighth grade Science in Tulia, Texas.  In school, I was involved in anything and everything.  I was passionate about  4-H in which I participated in clothing, food and nutrition, beef, photography, swine, sheep, goats, and various community service projects.  I learned tons of vital information that I use to this day.  In school, I was involved in FFA, student council, cheerleading, and many dual credit classes.

When I went to college, I knew I wanted to stay involved in campus activities and humanitarian outreach.  I joined a sorority, Delta Zeta, where I was involved in philanthropic projects inside the community, such as, the Ronald McDonald House, Work-A-Thon, Shack-A-Thon, and many more.  I also took on some leadership roles such as the alumni relations chair and courtesy chair.  I am now an active alumna.

I am student teaching for fourth through sixth grade math in the fall in Kress.  I love children, they are my passion.  I am going to graduate from West Texas A&M University in December with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I get so excited when I see children grasp new knowledge and know that I had something to do with their learning. I either want to teach second grade or math in a small rural community in the future.

I am beyond excited for this internship and cannot wait to get started.
