Degrees and Certifications:
I earned my masters degree in middle school education with emphasis in 6 – 8 mathematics. I graduated from Humboldt State University with a degree in Elementary Education with minors in Child Development, Business, and Leadership. HSU is also where I earned my first credential in teaching (multiple subjects). I earned my second credential after my master’s degree, which is a single subject mathematics credential.
There are many things I love about teaching. One thing that I love is the content. I really enjoy math and all things that it encompasses. What is the main aspect of teaching that I love? I love building relationships with students and getting to know them on a nonacademic level. Teaching is not only about the academics but the social aspects as well.
I love teaching because I am able to build relationship with my students that are not just about academics, but about their lives outside of school.
