Hello, my name is Jen Neal. I recently moved to from Glen Rock to Bellefonte just outside State College. I grew up and lived in York County my entire life so I am still adjusting to being on my own and living outside of my hometown. I have been a server at Texas Roadhouse for over 2 years now. In my free time I like to scrapbook, fish, or go kayaking. I love anything that is fun and can take my mind off of any stress for a while. I am currently pursuing my degree in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Special Education. I have always wanted to work with children and have an impact on their lives. My brother has Autism, which led to me minoring in Special Education. I am taking this course because my major requires it. I'm not that knowledgeable about geography so I hope to learn new and exciting information that I can one day teach to my students.
A current issue I hope to be addressed in this course is how humans impact the environment. Everyone hears that you should not liter or the o zone layer has a hole in it. I hope to learn what specifics are contributing to this, and how humans can change their negative effect on the environment into a positive. I read about sustainability that I felt connected with my topic, because humans need to learn how to function without disrupting the performance of the environment. I am interested in learning about this information while taking this course over the summer.
