EducationSt. John's College, Santa Fe, NM - Bachelor's Degree, Liberal Studies
ExperienceI am a native Californian, and I grew up in the city of Fresno. My undergraduate degree is in liberal studies from St. John's College. I'm a certified educator in a variety of subjects, and I have had my credentials for over 15 years. I've worked with students that range from middle schoolers to high schoolers in the areas of mathematics, social and physical sciences, and geography. I truly love to learn, and I attribute that to my wide range of experiences as an educator. I also love to work with people, and I constantly seize opportunities during conversations with others to provide information to them as well as pick up new information myself.I believe that people learn best when the right inquiries are made. When learners have to locate and find information to provide the correct response, they retain that information on a more intimate level than if information is freely given to them. To me, the most important aspect of education is for students to gain complete mastery in the concepts and principles that they are being asked to retain. At that point, they are able to incorporate newly acquired information into critical thinking to come up with unique and novel solutions to existing problems.In my spare time, I volunteer at a local museum teaching patrons about how ancient life evolved into the species that we have on Earth today. I am just as entertained by receiving new information from others on subjects that I don't know about. I am a collector of minerals and fossils, and I like to spend time outdoors.
