I would have to say that all of my education since grade school has focused on math and science. I went to Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions in Houston, Texas. It was there that I really found my niche in both science and math, where AP Physics and AP Calculus were my favorites. I later went to Howard University, in Washington D.C., where I majored in Biology, but I later discovered that I didn’t quite satiate my curiosity for science. After college, I went to school part-time, at the University of Houston. While there, I completed several classes, such as Biochemistry I, Biochemistry II, Endocrinology and Human Physiology.
Soon after, I was presented with the opportunity to teach at a local charter school, here in Houston. I first taught Chemistry, as a 10th grade long-term substitute and was later asked to stay to teach 9th grade Algebra. While teaching, I focused on the various learning styles of my students and played upon that constantly. While teaching, I set a new goal to continue to teach until I retire.
Recently, I received a Masters of Arts in Biotechnology from Columbia University in the City of New York. While there, I continued to fulfill my love for the sciences and took several more science classes, such as Developmental Biology, Neurobiology II, and Molecular Pharmacology. After completing my last semester, at Columbia, I found that I have taken nearly thirty science classes at both the undergraduate and graduate level. I will now use all this information to teach as an adjunct faculty, in the Biology department, at a local community college. In the Spring 2013, I will teach Anatomy & Physiology I and Nutrition.
Now, while tutoring, I simply wish to translate my love for both science and math to my students.
