This week I met a lovely girl named Valeria Gonzalez. Valeria is a 3rd year here at CSULB and is majoring in recreational therapy. Her career goal is to become an occupational therapist. Valeria loves to binge watch tv shows, go to the movies and amusement parks with friends, and take naps! She is currently watching the latest season of Shameless and Jane the Virgin. She’s also trying to catch up on iZombie and Dexter.
When I asked her what she thought the college experience would be like in 2036, she said she saw more ethnically diverse teachers and faculty. I agreed. As more children of immigrants are growing up and finishing school, there are already people of different ethnicity and race giving back to their community by becoming teachers. I went to an elementary with mostly white teachers. When I pass by now, I see teachers who look like my aunts and others who are of color. Hopefully by 2036, teachers all around will represent the communities they teach. We also talked about how there wouldn’t be anymore textbooks. Textbooks will become E-books or materials will just be online. This is probably likely since we’re a very tech-savy generation, I think.
