TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My start in education was becoming an America Reads tutor while attending San Diego State University. I worked in a third grade classroom in a low-income area assisting students in reading, writing and comprehension. After this, I volunteered as a teacher's assistant to a professor of Sociology at SDSU for one semester. In addition to assisting in the classroom, I was also responsible for running small group extra credit sessions and gauging critical comprehension of social issues discussed in class. While in this position, I concurrently worked as a personal tutor for a middle school student. The next step I took was accepting a position that I was recommended to by a former professor at SDSU, which I still currently work now. I teach small groups at a program called World News Review in which we teach students about social issues and the importance of being aware of current events, along with critical thinking and public speaking skills. I also recently began working for JEI Learning Center as a tutor in basic English and grammar skills, writing skills, and techniques for standardized testing.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is simple - I am extremely honest with my students. I don't sugarcoat issues and I tell them the truth and let them know that while it isn't always easy to hear, it is vital to know in order to become a good thinker and a contributing citizen to society. I feel that it is absolutely crucial for students to be able to think for themselves and to question everything, including me and the information I tell them.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated with distinction from SDSU in May of 2013 and made the Dean's List in my time there. As mentioned earlier, I was recommended to the current teaching position I have by a former professor. I participated in a poetry reading in January 2015 and subsequently had my poetry published in a local periodical and was interviewed for an article about local poets. While there are not formal honors or awards at the organization that I work for because it is small and independently run, I have received great praise from my supervisor in my effectiveness as a teacher.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

After graduating high school six months early, I immediately began attending community college. I then transferred into SDSU and have applied for grad school in the sociology program for Fall 2015.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I would love to take any requests for lesson plans! I have made dozens of lesson plans based of off TIME Magazine and greatly enjoy coming up with lessons about current events and social issues.
