I believe that with the right teacher a spark of interest can be started with any student. I also believe the most effective teachers are the ones who really care about their students success and helping them move alone.
When you combine a great passion for learning with a love of teaching and the students being taught great things can be accomplished.
I graduated from my high school in the top 10% of my class. I then continued with my education by earning a Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Washington. I also received a Ph.D. in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology in 2013 at Ohio State University.
I tutored mostly elementary aged students on a regular basis all through high school. During my undergraduate work I was a tutor for the K-9 program which specifically worked with Native American students K-12 in Provo, UT. Between my undergraduate work and graduate work I was a substitute paraeducator for the Kent School District in Washington State where I worked one on one with kids with special needs and English as a second language.
I am learning to play the violin and am taking lessons one time per week. I also volunteer with the Special Olympics whenever possible in my area. I’m very involved in my church and church programs (and have taught religion classes for over 10 years).
