My name is Chentiesha Cozart. I am currently a second year student in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Florida International University. I will be graduating with my degree as a Doctor of Physical Therapy in August of 2016. I received a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a concentration in Mathematics in 2013 from Florida International University. For high school I attended the School for Advanced Studies, a dual enrollment program at Miami Dade College. Through this program, I was able to graduate with an Associates in Arts degree at the same time that I received my high school diploma in 2010.
Science and math have always been a big part of my academic interests but writing and reading have always been my passion. Students have the most difficulty with science and math courses due to the fact that in most cases the information is presented as a long list of facts and steps rather than being expressed in terms of the application. I think that it is imperative to give students an overview of the "why". Why is this topic important and how can I apply it to a real life context.
As stated previously, writing and reading have always been my passions. They offered me an escape from my studies and a platform where I could imagine and think. It is hard for some students to see writing and reading as more than work required of them when it is assigned to them in school; writing an expository paper becomes a laborious task of trying to pick your brain and answer the question "why is this important" several times over. I find that when students are shown a systematic way to write an essay they are able to confidently express their thoughts.
Education has always been important to me and has played a major role in my life. Through my many years of study, I am confident that I would be able to use the information that I have acquired and relate it to students in a more understandable and fun way.
My hobbies outside of academia include any and all outdoor activities, exercising, exploring alternative food options (as I am a vegan), and reading articles and books with a scientific basis.
