EducationI graduated from Sonoma State University with a B.A. in English, with a concentration in secondary education (7th-12th grade teaching). I am a current Credential Program student finishing my final semester in the program, studying Single Subject Education with a focus in teaching English. I gradated Cum Laude (3.5 GPA) and was also recognized by my Department with Distinction at Graduation. I currently hold a 4.0 in the Credential Program.
ExperienceI have tutored college level students at the Sonoma State Writing Center on campus for a year, working both with smaller grammar issues as well as larger structure work, and resume help.
I have worked teaching college freshman for the last 4 years in a class designed to help them suceeed not only their first year in college, but every year thereafter. We teach study skills, life skills, and academic preparedness, among other topics.
I am, and have always wanted to be a teacher. It is one of my passions to help a student see the strength in themselves and the knowledge they possess so they feel comfortable in and outside of the classroom. Too many times students doubt their work and the knowledge they hold, and my goal is to turn this idea around and help students to see their potential and successes rather than focus on previous "failures".
HobbiesI am from a small town up north so one of my passions is enjoying time outside, including camping, swimming in lakes/rivers, or playing in the snow! I love to read and write and hope one day to share this passion with others, whether that is in the classroom or by one day writing my first book.
