I have always loved social science because I have always felt that it teaches a little about everything. Growing up we didn't have the same technology or visuals used today. A lot of my love of learning came from the stories and enthusiasm my teachers conveyed.
Ironically, I teach at the junior high that I went to many years ago. There will be a math opening at our school next year (Jefferson Junior High School in Woodridge). If you get your student teaching done, it could be a prime opportunity.
