Introduction, Montano

Hello! My name is Alyssa Montano and I was born and raised in Alaska. This is my 3rd year at UAF. I am majoring in elementary education and wanted to take this course online so I can work as a substitute teacher with an open schedule. I have always loved geography and learning about new places. In my junior year of high school, I was fortunate enough to go on exchange. I chose to go to Latvia because my grandmother was born there and wanted to learn more about it. I fell in love with Latvia and decided to apply for nursing school there. I didn't pass the first semester so I decided to come back to UAF and continued to study nursing before I changed my major a few weeks ago. I can definitely see myself being a geography teacher. I hope this course will help me in my career and show me some new places and cultures.
