Like many of you, I am pursuing my secondary teaching certificate as well as my Master’s in Secondary Education. I graduated this past May with a bachelors in History and a minor and Economics and am currently doing my internship out at North Pole High teaching 10th grade World History and Government to seniors. So far, so good! I hope this next year will help me become more knowledgeable in all the administrative duties of teachers (lesson plans, Danielson, IEPs, etc.) I’m looking forward to learning a lot of classroom management skills because although I think I can manage your average classroom fairly well (my students are super awesome this semester!) it has to be one of the major areas I lack confidence.
On a more personal note, I was born and raised here in Fairbanks and graduated from high school in 2005. I went to college originally for engineering, then took a long break before heading back to college in 2011.
