My name is Jasmine Pugh and I was born on October 30. I come from a family of five and I am the oldest of three children.
I graduated from DeSoto High School in DeSoto, TX where I was ranked number 13 out of 647 in my graduating class and maintained a cumulative GPA of 4.57 on a 5.0 scale. Throughout my high school years I received many awards and honors such as: the Algebra Award, the Chemistry Award, Geometry Award, Reading Buddy Community Service Award, and the S.O.A.R. Award (Students Outstanding Academic Recognition). I was also involved in many school activities such as: T.A.F.E. (Texas Association of Future Educators), Student Council, Mu Alpha Theta (Math Honor Society), National Honor Society, and National English Honor Society.
I graduated from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff in Pine Bluff, Arkansas in May 2018 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and a teaching certification in grades K-6. My goal as an educator is to decrease the number of minority students classified as special education and increase the numbers in gifted and honors programs. After teaching a while and obtaining my masters degree, I plan to open my own preschool. I believe that if you start children off young and get them in the mindset of loving education, they will learn to cherish it for life.
