About Sterling

I am graduating with a Bachelors in Liberal Studies as a Multiple Subject Teacher, and will soon be entering the credential program at CSU Bakersfield. I work hard to create a fun and interactive environment for the preschool students that I currently teach. I have always used art and creativity to my advantage when both learning and teaching. It is important to me, that children are considered individuals with the ability to grow as a person and be able to work with a group or with other students.

Grammar was always algebra but with ALL words and no numbers through my eyes as a student. I always thought that reading and grammar were difficult to comprehend but I later found that it was only the teachers that provided the wrong idea of the subjects, which in turn gave me a negative idea of reading later in life. I aim to give students a better reason to read and comprehend what they read for good reasons and in a way they can fully understand.

My creativity helps me to understand students in this age group without even trying. The trying comes into play when the students weren't taught to develop the creativity and excitement for learning that I had to gain on my own. I plan to make learning exciting for students at these ages because if the lessons are not exciting and captivating, the students will only lose interest and that is exactly what we don't want.

Life. Art has been a part of my life since I could move. Well, maybe not that long, but close. Art has been an outlet for me as a human who learned to love all things that make my eyes sing. I like pretty things, and ugly things, and just things. I enjoy that art is not right and it is not wrong. Students have the opportunity to define what art is as soon as they decide to develop an opinion and having that ability to produce something that they enjoy looking at, and can share with others, is extremely important to any learning process.

I promise to make learning fun.
