Meet Miss Kline




“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” -Malala Yousafzai. Miss Kline is beginning to learn this through her journey with student teaching.  Mr. Carey is Miss Kline’s supervisor during her stay here at GNA.

What inspired you to become a teacher?

I’m lousy at math and science, so that eliminates quite a few potential career options. I’ve always enjoyed reading and writing. I like being a student, as I plan to get my PhD one day! So why not help kids be the best students possible?

When you student teach, do you get to choose the schools you teach at?

To a certain extent. I was asked to name my top three high schools that I wanted to teach at, and Nanticoke was one of them. I am very happy with my placement! Mr. Carey is super helpful and patient. 

What was your dream job as a child?

I believe I’ve always wanted to be a teacher. The majority of the teachers I’ve been with are positive and admirable.

What advice would you give students who are leaning towards a teaching career?

Ask yourself: do I like kids? If the answer is no, please reconsider your career choice. Students know when a teacher’s heart is not invested in their well-being and education. Who wants to learn from someone who doesn’t care?

What is you favorite high school memory?

High school wasn’t always smooth sailing for me, but I think that is usually the case. I loved picking apart literary works and “reading between the lines.” There is a chance that your favorite high school memories won’t include prom and graduation, and that’s okay! Sometimes the little things make the biggest impact.

How much did high school change since your high school days?

I’ve only been out of high school for four years, but some things have definitely changed! The main change is the increase in technology usage. I didn’t usually take quizzes or exams online. I also used to receive paper report cards. Now, parents can check their child’s grades whenever they want. I’m not sure I’m sad to have missed that…
