Statement of Purpose

I am Danielle N. Wright, an independent woman that society has helped mold into a successful person. I am a first year student here at Elizabeth City State University with mathematics as my major and a minor in education. After graduating from high school I knew that I would most definitely be attending college.  I just did not know which one it would be, finally I heard about Elizabeth City State University and fell in love with the campus and the administrators that helped me make my final decision.  After graduating from this University I plan to go to graduate school and get a masters degree in mathematics, which will open the door to many other career opportunities, specifically National Security Agency (NSA) or mathematics education.

My love for math has always been keen as far as the subject being exact and how it affects everyday life. I began to think about what I wanted to do with mathematics and education came to mind. As a mathematics teacher I would be able to express my love for the subject and expose others to the ability they themselves have. One thing I have learned from living in today’s society is that professors or educators themselves have a lot of influence on the youth of today and how they can be molded into better people. As far as teaching is concerned, the goal I have set for myself is to make mathematics fun and allow students to have an interactive role in the classroom.

Although I have set goals to accomplish they are not to hard.  My most recent goal is to graduate Summa Cum Laude in May of 2009 and to go on and further my education.  My future goal to accomplish is to become an exceptional mathematics teacher and later become a loving wife and mother.
