I graduated with a B.S. in Earth and Space Sciences from the University of Washington this last summer.

Science has always been my favorite subject in school, and I loved getting to use my hands to conduct experiments. I love discovering how things work, and it makes me appreciate the world that I live in that much more. Last year I volunteered at Nova High School helping out with a biology class as well as tutoring math on occasion. I even got to plan and teach my own lesson on mass extinctions taking what I learned from observing the teacher teach over the last couple months and implementing my own style as well.

My volunteer experience is a continuation of my four years at the Woodland Park Zoo. I taught visitors about the various animals on exhibit and about conservation. I worked there throughout high school, and through it got to learn how fun teaching could be. On a typical day I would talk with hundreds of people of all different ages, backgrounds, and interests. I learned to be flexible in my teaching strategies, shifting focus and tailoring my talk for each group that I got to talk to. I got to make learning fun and exciting. I loved the look on a kid’s face when they learned something new.

Later throughout my undergrad I got several other opportunities in education as an interpreter at the Burke Museum and as a TAA for the ESS Department at the University of Washington. I had lots of fun working with the Burke Museum, and as a TAA and am looking forward to working with more students in the future.
