School Me 115 -- Dr. Lynn Yribarren

"What do you want to be when you grow up?" This might be the most asked question kids get. The answers tend to lead to firefighter, astronaut, or musician. Even though these glorified positions are important and aren't restricted to only safety, discovery, and entertainment; it's rare to find a profession where you need to juggle all these at once.  What might be even rarer, is to hear a child say, "I want to be a teacher!" It's a job that is extremely valuable, yet it is overlooked like the salt in the ocean. We seem to just take them for granted. Florida International University professor, Dr. Lynn Yribarren, is a Senior Instructor with a Doctorate in Curriculum and instruction. She answers why this may be and how the education system is often overlooked.  By challenging her students to get the most out of their education, Dr. Yribarren does her part molding educators simply by asking them to think critically.
