About Chiara


Bio

Hello! I'm Chiara, a junior at the University of Florida majoring in Wildlife Ecology & Conservation with a minor in Disabilities in Society. I graduated valedictorian of Lake Highland Preparatory School in Orlando and have made the Dean's List consistently since coming to UF. I am also an Anderson Scholar, meaning I have above a 3.90 cumulative GPA after my first two years at UF. I have three younger siblings who have been contributing factors to my interest in the field of education....

Hello! I'm Chiara, a junior at the University of Florida majoring in Wildlife Ecology & Conservation with a minor in Disabilities in Society. I graduated valedictorian of Lake Highland Preparatory School in Orlando and have made the Dean's List consistently since coming to UF. I am also an Anderson Scholar, meaning I have above a 3.90 cumulative GPA after my first two years at UF. I have three younger siblings who have been contributing factors to my interest in the field of education. Although I am not majoring in Elementary Education, I would love to end up teaching biology or science when I'm older. I grew up overseas and moved to the US in 8th grade, where I started babysitting and tutoring two years later. I worked with children at a local elementary school helping them study for the FCAT (working on reading, writing, and math) for two years after school. I have also consistently helped my younger brother with his homework and with his essays as he applied to college this year. He has dysgraphia and dyscalculia, as does my older brother, so I am relatively familiar with learning disabilities.

In the two years I spent working with the children at Ferncreek Elementary, I think the thing I loved most was getting to see how excited and genuinely proud they were when they made progress and tackled a new skill. So many children get discouraged and stressed out by their homework- especially math and English- but I have learnt that with hard work and a positive attitude, the hardest tasks become doable. I have had so many amazing teachers over the years, and through them I have learnt that being engaging, easy to approach and dedicated are the traits that make them stand out. I like to think that I, too, have those traits.

EDUCATION

I took two years of high school calculus, AP Physics, AP Statistics, got an A in my calculus course my first semester of college, and worked with children on FCAT mathematics material for two years.

I took two years of AP English in high school, AP English Language requiring an essay written every weekend. I got an A in an advanced writing course for wildlife majors, and wrote college essays that resulted in acceptances to UNC Chapel Hill and four other colleges with high scholarship offers.

My major requires two semesters of chemistry and biology. I got A's in three of those four classes and a B+ in the other. Since then I have gotten all A's in the upper level science courses within my major. Additionally, I took AP Environmental Science and AP Physics in high school, and worked with children on FCAT science material for two years.

I spent 10 years living in China at an international school with a heavy focus on world history, and took AP US Government & AP US History in high school.

All in all, I have loved working with children and would love to get the chance to help more children excel. I am easy to work with and have enough time in my schedule to dedicate to this job. I am also very easy to contact, have a flexible schedule and my own car. Contact me if you have any questions!
