Emily Catherine Kampeter

2006 MARE Scholarship

Emily Catherine Kampeter 2006 MARE Scholarship

Emily Kampeter is a recipient of the MARE Scholarship.  Emily graduated from the Osage County R-3 High School.  She currently is attending Lincoln University in Jefferson City working on a degree major in Elementary Education.

Growing up in a small community, and attending rather small, rural schools, I determined one thing about my future; I only want to teach in the same type of setting as I grew up in.  The hardest part of college has been grasping the fact that not all my professors will get to know my name and a little about me, before the end of the semester.  When I become a teacher, I want to be able to know my students professionally and yet personally.

One of her professors shares that Emily is an excellent student who has demonstrated excellent academic achievement in her classes and in the teacher education programs at Lincoln U.  During my observations through the on-site based programs, she had good rapport with the students and understands them developmentally and academically.  Living in a rural area, attending a rural school, she has a strong commitment to rural education.

Another instructor shares that Emily's greatest strengths is her ability to see the strengths in each individual.  She makes people feel good about themselves, and she does it in a non-assuming and professional way.
