I believe that every student has different learning styles and/or needs which must be taken into account in order for learning to occur; educators need to be aware of this. A small ratio of teachers to students is a great way to focus on individual needs and encourage students to learn!
While in school, I student taught at both middle and high school levels, took an internship in a quarantine laboratory and helped develop scientific papers, was a Resident Assistant in a dormitory of my peers for two years, and also was a counselor at an overnight summer camp for children 8 until seniors in high school.
I love studying nature and biology. It never ceases to draw me in, from the weed thriving in the crack on the sidewalk to the raptor soaring overhead; I am always in awe.
