Intern Adyson DavisAdyson Davis is a student at Lander University where she is currently majoring in Elementary Education.  She plans to graduate in 2021/2022.

We asked Adyson a series of questions to learn more about her and why she chose to intern at United Ministries this summer.

What are your plans after college?

To get my masters in Supervision and teach at a Title 1 school.

What would be your dream job?

To become a teacher to 2nd graders then become a principle of a school to do the social work aspect of teaching.

Why did you want to intern at United Ministries?

I felt like it would help me better understand where my students will be coming from. It has given me a better understanding that not everyone was raised like I was and that we all have different backgrounds, but we are alike in certain ways.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I work all the time, so normally I spend my free hours with friends or recuperating, taking naps. I also run errands that I have put off since moving back to Greenville from Greenwood.

What’s been your favorite class in college and why?

Education 203, which was my field experience. I got to experience student teaching in a title 1 school and was hands on with students who are going through rough times with parents and DSS. The students really opened up to me about their home life and how they are grateful for the time they spend at school.

How do you take your coffee?

Hot- Black… Iced- Black or a little bit of almond milk and sugar free vanilla

You’re given $2,000 and can only spend it on other people – what do you do with it?

I would love to give back to teachers who use their own money to pay for student’s school supplies and clothing, so they will be able to pay for more school supplies.
