      Cognitive Psychology is the area that interests me most because it relates to so many other different things! It’s about how we perceive things in the world around us, how we think, use language, solve problems, and remember things. Cognitive Psychology also looks at how these things can change throughout our lives as our brains develop through childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age, which I find really interesting to think about. Teaching it means that I get to find out about all of the interesting things to talk about with students.
