Ivy Stories: Education is the No. 2 ‘hot job’ in Indiana

Ivy Stories is a short, occasional feature on Green Light that spotlights current students and/or recent graduates.

Indiana needs teachers. Big time. Indiana needs teachers so badly, education is the No. 2 “hot job” in Indiana.

Crystal Terry plans to take advantage of that need–which is handy, since she wanted to be a teacher, anyway.

“I want to be an inspiration to other students the way that my teachers have been to me,” she says.

When Terry finishes her associate degree at Ivy Tech, she plans to transfer her credits to Purdue University Fort Wayne for her bachelor’s degree.

“The experience that I have had at Ivy Tech has been amazing,” says Terry, of Kendallville. “All of the professors and my advisor has made a huge impact on my journey here. I have had great times as well as hard times, but I always pushed through the hard times and kept on going. I have learned so much, and I am looking forward to using what I have learned by passing it on to my future students.”
