The University of Connecticut (History)
I am a 21 year old college student who will be graduating with a Bachelors of Arts from the University of Connecticut in May of 2016. I have commuted to the Stamford Campus of UCONN for all four years because I enjoyed living in the city and am capable and willing of commuting to lessons.
I plan on getting my teaching certificate so that I can teach either middle school or high school level history as well as coaching at either of those levels. I am very flexible in scheduling and willing to do everything I can to make sure we make the times work for both myself and the student. I am going to shadow History teachers in my area to gain more experience working in schools and teaching and helping children.
In my education at the University of Connecticut, I was fortunate to be able to take a wide array of history courses. I took courses ranging Urban American History, US History, Latin American History, History of the Modern Middle East, European History. I have been interested in History since I was in 8th grade and took a number of AP and UCONN level history courses throughout my High School Education.
