Introduction – Liviu Rizea

Hi all,

I am sorry for my late introduction. I am Liviu Rizea from Romania and I live in Eagle River, Alaska where I’ve moved with my family from New Mexico, three years ago. I am married and I have a 10 yo son. I am in the final year of the graduate program in Secondary Education at University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and this is one of the two last classes I take this semester together with a psychology education one in order to accomplish the requirements for my next spring graduation. Since I’ve moved to United States fourteen years ago, I lived with my family in five different states: Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico and now Alaska where we love it very much.  I’ve got a bachelor degree in engineering from Bucharest, Romania and a graduate degree in engineering from San Francisco University.  I’ve worked in engineering and project management for several years before I’ve start taking classes for my teaching license. I  began  teaching after we moved to Zuni Indian Reservation in New Mexico and since then I taught math, physical science and physics to grades varying from 6th to 12th to diverse population of students that includes Native Americans in New Mexico and Russian Old Believers in Homer, Alaska. I also taught for one year in Wasilla, Alaska. I am excited to be in this class as I believe class management and organization constitutes the foundation that allows teachers to develop their teaching strategies in order to accomplish their goals in students learning. As a teacher I aim to bring to my class real life experiences that my engineering background can help find.  I am looking forward with interest to a great semester.
