Inherently good at mathematical skills. I didn't focus on math during my B.S. but it was involved in most everything I did, one way or another.
I haven't taken a Calculus class in four years, but both Calc classes I took in college, I earned A- grades in. Math has always come naturally to me, and I think I have multiple ways of explaining specific calculus topics.
I've taken three college chemistry classes, and 2 college chemistry labs. I've used chemistry in practical applications of working in biology and ecology lab settings.
I've taken, and earned good grades in, Ecology, Evolution, Freshwater Ecology, Disease Ecology, Behavioral Ecology, Marine Conservation Biology, and have worked in multiple ecology laboratory settings at UC Santa Cruz.
I'm currently in the M.Ed. program at CSU, and through some of the classes I've taken, I've gained some invaluable strategies as to how to teach younger children. I'm extremely skilled in science and math as well as writing, skilled at english subjects, and have an enthusiasm for teaching!
I have a very strong background in science, and I also have a very strong background in working with youth in this age group (6-13).
I have always loved traveling, and geography is a passion outside of academia for me. However, I know the basics that are taught both in elementary and secondary educational institutions.
I've taken and performed well in an Animal Physiology lecture as well as a lab.
I loved my trig teacher in high school, and that's probably why I remember so much of it so clearly. This is not a subject I studied in college, but I have a great understanding of the material.
I've taken and passed both an Invertebrate Zoology lecture and lab. Furthermore, my B.S. in Ecology and Evolution emphasizes the critical nature of these subjects, and how connected Zoology is to biology, ecology, physiology and even chemistry.
