What does heaven look like for a job-seeking education major hoping to work in the Twin Cities? I would imagine it looks a lot like the MN Education Fair at the Minneapolis Convention Center today. With over 100 school districts, many of them from the Twin Cities, and all of them searching for qualified candidates to teach at their schools. Preparing for today, I had no idea what to expect. I printed off a whole bunch of resumes and recommendations to give to potential employers and I prepared a short elevator speech to say to administrators when I shook their hand. I made a prioritized list of districts I wanted to visit and picked out my professional outfit! I was excited to get going and make connections (and hopefully land some interviews!). When all was said and done with the education fair, I had done five short interviews and made countless connections and collected numerous business cards. I was worried about getting lost in the crowd and not making meaningful connections with administrators, but I felt that my outgoing personality and my fearless attitude allowed me to fully participate in the conversations with administrators and I am so happy with how it all went! I would call the education fair a complete success!!

Hello, there! I’m Kelsey Rausch and I am an English Education major from Elk River, Minnesota. It is my hope that I will be able to do extraordinary things with my life and I think I chose the right college to help me make an impact on people’s lives. I have some serious Cobber pride and couldn’t be more in love with this amazing college! I love music in every way that it can be taken in, whether that be listening, collecting, watching, or performing. I’d like to think I have great taste in music and I love connecting with people over a shared interest in music. I’m always up for an adventure and trying new things. I’m (apparently) very awful at telling stories, so I have to have crazy adventures to talk about to make up for my lack of ability. I am always in search of good books to read and I am grateful for God, who has blessed me with so much.
