I first enrolled at American International College in 2010 as a Nursing student. I had an interest in the program because of my experiences completing advance science classes in high school, which led me to developing a love for these subjects. I always possessed a caring and nurturing attitude towards others, which attracted me to the healthcare field. After gaining experience working as a Certified Nursing Assistant for two years while being a full-time student, I concluded to change my major to science education. I enjoyed completing the biology and chemistry pre-requisites courses for the program my freshman year. During these classes, I found myself teaching my peers difficult theories and laws, which I could break down the material to their understanding. My sophomore year was difficult, because I missed studying different science subjects. I realized in the end that the nursing profession was not my calling.
I came to the realization that education was always my passion, and changed my major to become a science educator. I was given an opportunity to teach and tutor students as a laboratory assistant at American International College and gained practical skills preparing experiments. This knowledge I have received has helped me in my future endeavors of managing my own classroom as a professional teacher and creating my course curriculum.
Anatomy, Biology, Chemistry, Ecology, Physics, etc.
I want to help you succeed in your course!
