The job hunt is in full swing and I am sending out applications left and right! It’s really exciting to see all of the different places that have open English positions because each time I apply, I picture my future working there! Many people feel disheartened during the job hunt phase of their career, but that’s not how I feel! I truly feel like Concordia has prepared me to be an exceptional teacher and I am excited about sharing my ideas and passion with my future students. I have been fortunate to have been offered interviews for a couple great school districts and have enjoyed talking with administrators and teachers from the districts about how I would be a great fit for their school! At the Education Fair in Minneapolis on Monday, I was offered a job interview for Mounds View school district for today! When I informed them that I went to school in Moorhead, they suggested a skype interview. Even though I really believe face to face interactions are the best way to connect with people in an interview, I jumped at the opportunity to interview for a potential job without having to drive all the way down to the cities! I was nervous that the interview wasn’t going to go as well because I wasn’t going to be able to make eye contact and whatnot, but I finished the interview feeling very confident about my answers and the relationships I built with my interviewers! Hooray for skype interviews!!

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.
