Ty Rhodes is an ambitious twenty-three-year adult from Nacogdoches, Texas. Ty demonstrated that she cares for others by attaining a bachelor’s degree in social work from the University of Texas at Arlington. Since she attended the University of Texas at Arlington, she is comfortable and feels at home in the Dallas area and is excited to begin a new adventure in a city she knows. She also felt pulled toward the urban schools and hopes to teach middle school math. Ty will be successful and positively impact her students due to her experience with youth in the past as well as her ability to see the potential in all of her students, even those that do not see it in themselves. She felt as though her teachers and coaches influenced and helped her to get to where she is today, and therefore she hopes to be somebody that can impact her students as well. Ultimately, Ty is looking forward to this year of challenges and triumphs and expects to grow, cry and to develop into the teaching profession.
