My name is Heath Morris and I am 21 years old. I have lived in Mobile Alabama all of my life. I graduated from St. Paul's Episcopal School and played baseball my freshman for Mississippi College. I love being outdoors, on the water, or anything competitive. I am double majoring in elementary education as well as special education. I discovered that I wanted to become a teacher about a year ago when i was in nursing school. I worked as a Nursing Assistant at Mobile Infirmary for close to a year while is was in school. I spent time and had hands on experiences with many patients in my time there. I always enjoyed instructing as well as informing them about hospital policies, procedures, and medications.
One night while at work I talked with a patient who had been a nurse all her life but wished she had been a 6th grade science teacher. She went on to say that she wished she would have just done what would have made her happy instead of thinking about her pay check at the end of the week. I have always wanted to coach baseball and teach but I have always been reluctant to do it because of the money. In this conversation I realized that while you are spending your short time on this earth, you should do what makes you happy.
