I was a chemistry major until I found that I enjoyed biology more than chemistry. Yet, I still have this passion for chemistry that extends beyond my comprehension and makes me want to be certified in chemistry so that I can pass this passion onto my students.
Why do you want to teach:
I want to teach so that I can inspire students to enjoy and love science like my high school chemistry teacher did for me.
Describe a memorable teaching experience:
A memorable experience was when I was teaching third graders about simple machines and helped them to understand a concept that is no longer placed in the elementary-school standards.
What does the Noyce program mean to you:
The Noyce program is providing an opportunity to gain more experience teaching students in situations that are very different from those in the school I attended.
