Getting to Know Our Students: Meet Julia Bigoness

This year, we are spending time getting to know our students! You can get to know more of our students and our faculty/ staff on our blog series. Read on to meet Julia, a member of our freshman class!

bigonessMy name is Julia Bigoness, and I am a freshman studying Elementary Education and Spanish. I grew up in Naperville, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago and have been living in Milwaukee for almost nine months. I have one older brother who attends Georgia Tech and one younger brother in seventh grade. My mom is a nurse, and my dad is a criminal investigator and an alumnus of Marquette University.

I chose Marquette University because it is super close to the city. I felt a sense of community whenever I took tours of the school. I always felt like it was a home because I could see myself on campus for the next four years. One of my favorite things about the College of Education is that I can jump right into the classroom setting. I also like how there are a variety of schools where I can do service learning and experience different environments.

My favorite educational experience is service learning. I think that it is so cool that starting freshman year, I am able to be in the classroom. Service learning helped me apply what I have learned in the classroom to what I see during service learning. I look forward to going to service learning every week because I love to see how I can make a difference in a child’s day and how they can improve my day. Attending service learning helped me confirm that I am pursuing the right major.

One exciting opportunity that I am looking forward to this upcoming academic year is perfecting my Spanish and being able to start field observations. My goal is to be fluent in Spanish by the time I graduate and to be able to communicate to children and all of those that I encounter in a bilingual school setting.

The people who inspire me are the students in my service learning classrooms. I learn so much from them, and they help me apply what I have learned in the classroom. They are always so cooperative and willing to participate. I am so excited to become an elementary teacher and have my own classroom to inspire students and help them learn!
