Jenny BalzerClass of 2016 - Secondary Spanish Education

So I'm fairly new to this whole blogging scene. Hopefully some of my musings can clarify and issues or provide insight to you, my lovely readers. 

A little about me: I'm from a small town called Paragon. It's about 29 miles northwest of Bloomington, so Indiana University has always been in my back yard. I'm a proud member of the IU Class of 2016 and I'm studying Secondary Spanish Education. The whole purpose of that is so I can torture high school students with grammar drills and vocabulary **cue menacing laughter.** I'm kidding; the real reason I want to be a teacher is because my teachers have opened the door to the world for me. I cannot go back and open that door for them, but I can return the favor by paying it forward. 

When I'm not gleefully (that's not sarcastic) drowning myself in Spanish homework, I spend my time on an asphalt parking lot on the north side of Assembly Hall-the Marching Hundred practice field. I'm not a person who has great musical talent, but I genuinely enjoy the entertainment that we get to provide IU fans and the comradery that comes with being in an ensemble. I tell people I'm so band geek that I went band greek- I'm a member of Kappa Kappa Psi, the National Honorary Band Fraternity. Being in KKY has helped me grow as a person and a musician.
