Lindsey Betts has been awarded the Mary Roosevelt Honor Scholarship in Teaching and Learning during the UCI School of Education 2018-2019 Scholarship Award Ceremony. Lindsey is pursuing her Single Subject Master of Arts in Teaching in English.
Lindsey Betts is a single subject English candidate in the MAT program. Though a lifelong reader and writer, she first developed an intense love for literacy and critical analysis during her undergraduate years at Claremont McKenna College, where she studied Literature with a minor in Biology. Through these two lenses, she studied human behavior and their influence on science, the arts, and society at large.
Lindsey has always loved learning about people and gaining new perspectives, and has long desired to pursue a career in which she could educate and empower others to have a similar passion for learning more about the world around them. During her year of service as an Americorps volunteer, Lindsey served at Cloud & Fire, a high school completion program in Van Nuys, California. It was here that she first got a taste of teaching at a secondary level, designing curriculum for some of the college and career classes.
Desiring to better prepare herself for a future of teaching, Lindsey chose to work towards acquiring her California teaching credential and master’s degree, which brought her to UCI’s MAT program. Here she is enjoying every minute of the valuable training, excited for the day she will step into her own classroom and be ready to teach her future students!
