We're excited to feature FCS secondary education teacher McKenzie Mortensen. Her advisor at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Sheree Moser (also a member!) referred her to AAFCS and encouraged her to apply for the Spotlight.
McKenzie's had her sights set on teaching since the third grade. She writes, "It is important to me to get to know students on a personal level and work with them to succeed in school while also preparing them for their life after high school. My most memorable experience was when I first heard a 7th grader say, “Oh, I get it” after I explained the concept of work of the family."
