"One of the biggest lessons that we learned in economics was the process of decision-making. ....Especially in the summer, there were a lot of choices we had to decide. 'Do we sell, do we buy, is this company good for us anymore?' .. One of the biggest things that she taught us was decision-making. I really learned to re-evaluate and analyze my choices each time I have a set of them come up.
I can definitely say that has carried so much to [my college life in New York]... New York is so different from Porterville, California. There's a lot of new things to discover and a lot of new choices I have to make. What's really helped me take the stress off of it, is going back to Mrs. Drum's calm, sunshine voice and going through the lesson, through your choices, options, how to analyze and interpret, and decide what's best for you.
I can definitely say that it's taken a lot of pressure and anxiety and stress off of all the choices that come with adulting, college, and being 3,000 miles away from your family."- Tori Moore, Former Student of Emily Drum, an certified exceptional economics teacher
