Jesse

I’m currently a student in the accelerated master's program at Emory University's School of Nursing, with the goal of becoming a primary care nurse practitioner. My first bachelor’s degree is from Dickinson College, where I Religion with a concentration in Peace Studies and took a number of Sociology courses. I worked in outdoor education as an overnight camp counselor, coordinator, and eventually assistant director at summer camps for 7 years. I also spent a year as a classroom teacher in Boston elementary and middle schools teaching a conflict resolution and peacekeeping skills course as an AmeriCorps member, and I volunteered throughout college and afterward as a homework help tutor with elementary and middle school age students. I have a deep passion for education and hope to bring it with me into the healthcare field to help people learn how to care for their bodies. I’m very excited to be entering back into the direct teaching field after a few years working in a cancer research lab as I’ve prepared for nursing school. I love to see the excitement my students and campers have when they learn a new fact or accomplish a new skill, and my goal is to spread that sense of joy and accomplishment. My overall goals for my students are that they enjoy learning, that they understand how what they learn applies to their lives, and that they set challenging but attainable goals for themselves. I tailor my teaching style to match each student’s unique learning style and take advantage of their strengths. I have taught subjects ranging from math to orienteering to communication skills to music theory through kazoo workshops, and I like to blend my experience as a classroom teacher with my experience in informal teaching environments to keep lesson plans structured but exciting. I work primarily with elementary, middle school and early high school age students. I also take adult learners, particularly for test prep. Students can expect to set their own learning goals with my support, work hard, and celebrate successes just as enthusiastically.
