Bio

Hello folks, I'm Carlos. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a Bachelor's degree in history. In my last four years of college, I edited for the Welebaethan, CSUF's award-winning journal of history. In fact, I was co-editor-in-chief the year I graduated. I only got into editing because my favorite history professor noticed my talent for writing and suggested I join the editorial staff, which she oversaw.

Hello folks, I'm Carlos. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a Bachelor's degree in history. In my last four years of college, I edited for the Welebaethan, CSUF's award-winning journal of history. In fact, I was co-editor-in-chief the year I graduated. I only got into editing because my favorite history professor noticed my talent for writing and suggested I join the editorial staff, which she oversaw. I took an immediate liking to it and knew I would stay as long as I could. I also assisted that professor with a few of her classes, helping students on the side to become better writers. Like my professor, I like to approach teaching with a touch of humor. I know some students find history dull, and writing about it tedious at times, but with the proper approach, it can be enjoyable, engaging, and downright entertaining.

During my time with the Welebaethan, I had to work one-on-one with authors - fellow students, actually - to improve their writing. Before that, I worked at an elementary school as classroom aide and computer lab teacher, so working with students of all ages and proficiencies comes second nature to me. When I worked as a TA for my professor, I worked one-on-one with students struggling to meet certain writing requirements for the class. During my office hours as both a TA and editor, my door was always open for those who needed help with writing. I've created lesson plans on subjects ranging from elementary level history and astronomy to college level grammar and editing. I enjoy helping students excel, particularly in writing, and look forward to helping more students soon!

Over the course of four years at CSU Fullerton, I worked on the editorial staff of the Welebaethan, our journal of history. I moved up the ranks to managing editor and eventually co-editor-in-chief. As part of my work, I had to develop lesson plans for editing, specifically on passive voice, proper use of punctuation, and utilizing the Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) citation technique.
