Hi everyone so I need some advice or help, I’m currently a sophomore student in college but I have no I idea what to Major in. I was a math major In secondary education my first year because I enjoyed teaching/tutoring during the summer before I began college, however when I took a class required for that major I was very discouraged and was struggling on how to understand conceptual teaching(MAT 207) and ended up placing in a low math so It gave me the thought that maybe I wasn’t good in math like I initially thought. Move on to my second year I go in a BA in math but I am horrible in programming which is a require course for that major so now I’m undecided because I thought I was good at math but I don’t know now. I feel very unmotivated at this point and feel lost like I’m wasting time. I hate science and English so I know those aren’t something to major in. I did enjoy teaching math in high school but I am struggling in college. What should I do? My initial idea was to become a math teacher for algebra but as you can see that’s not going as planned.
@student2319 - Hang in there. Have you tried reaching out to an academic advisor? Especially one that is in the Fulton Teachers College? They may have some better advice. If your passion is teaching, I would keep pursuing that. You may end up focused in a different area, but you will still be in education. Also, my DS found office hours very helpful when he was struggling in a subject. He found the professors very willing to help someone genuinely trying to grasp the content.
