On the Princeton University campus, Raven DeRamus is a senior English major.

On the nearby campus of Princeton High School, she is Ms. DeRamus, a student teacher.

DeRamus is one of 11 participants in Princeton's Program in Teacher Preparation who spent the fall as student teachers at schools across central New Jersey. In this video, DeRamus, fellow student teacher Kanoa Mulling, a member of the Class of 2015, and Teacher Prep alumna Barbara Fortunato share their experiences in the program.

"Now that I'm doing student teaching, I realize it's really, really for me," DeRamus said. "It took me some experimenting and reflecting to get here. And I appreciate that about the Teacher Prep program. They really make you think about why you're doing what you're doing at the very beginning. So I really came to terms with the kind of person that I am and the kinds of things I want out of life and people I want to interact and what I imagine my days being like."
