I graduated from St. Petersburg College in July 2012 with my Teacher Certification in Elementary Education. In addition, I am in the process of obtaining my ESOL certification, which I will be testing for soon.
During my time at St. Petersburg College, I have had multiple internship experiences where I have had the ability to create my own lessons in the areas of language arts, math and science as well as teach district lessons. My internship experiences have included many different settings with economically disadvantaged and culturally diverse children.
During the years prior acquiring my Teaching Certification from St. Petersburg College, I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with emphasis in Human Development, and academic courses highlights of psychology research, leadership skills, and Spanish at Eckerd College in May 2009. I also have been a nanny for the past year, worked as a summer camp counselor for different institutions, and as a group leader for after school program, which gave me a lot of experience and crucial skills in working with elementary school children such as patience, flexibility, commitment, responsibility, and respect. Yet, the most important of all, a true passion for making a differencein a child’s life.
