Nohemi Cepeda

Hometown: Houston, Texas
University: UT Austin College of Education
Teaching Interest: Second Grade

Nohemi’s friends have been telling her for years that she was destined to become a teacher because of her leadership abilities and strength as a tutor. Although Nohemi always loved the idea of teaching, she was not certain of her career aspirations until she joined the Texas Association of Future Educators as a high school junior. Through that group, she had the opportunity to volunteer at an elementary school and completely fell in love with the students.

In her classroom, Nohemi hopes to foster a learning environment that encourages students to be kind to one another in hopes of building amiable and collaborative future leaders.

"Great teachers know what their students need and they understand what is culturally relevant."
