I am a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential Candidate at San Diego State University. I am currently student teaching in a fourth grade classroom. I have had several teaching experiences in the past that involved science education. I volunteered for a program called SciTrek at UCSB and helped teach science curriculum being developed at the university to second and fifth grade students. In addition, I worked as a Youth Development Professional at a local Boys and Girls Club. During this time I created and ran three weekly after school programs focused on science: Science Club, Earth Club, and Astronomy Club. All of these experiences were very rewarding and introduced me to the impact science can have on a child's imagination, creativity, and curiosity.
