About Thai

My love for teaching came during my time in college, at UCLA, in where I took courses that delved into racial inequality in education. From there, I knew I wanted to work in education. After receiving my B.A. in History, I then received my credential in Social Science at UCI and am currently pursing my Master's in Teaching. During this past academic year, I student taught two 11th grade U.S. History classes at Laguna Beach High School. The challenging and rewarding nature of my student teaching experience confirmed my love for teaching and working with kids.

As a Social Science instructor, we must align our lessons with the ELA Common Core Standards which emphasizes a great deal of writing. Thus, during my student teaching, I constantly had to read and edit a number of argumentative and analytical papers. For example, one of the big papers that I had to grade was on the atomic bomb and whether dropping the bomb on both Hiroshima and Nagasaki were justifiable. In addition, I worked with students on a one-on-one basis help edit their papers and lead them to write a more high-quality paper.

Not only did I student teach for 11th Grade U.S. History this past year, I also majored in History at UCLA. Thus, I have a substantial knowledge of material. However, with History, I am able to help students understand the material by making it relevant. Students want to know whether the concepts they are learning that day are relevant or matter in their present-day lives. Therefore, by making these type of connections, the material will be ingrained in their minds.

Please contact me for any questions or to schedule any lessons.
