My name is Garrett Sheets, and this is my fifth year at UAF. For the past three years I’ve been working my way towards a BS in Physics, a minor in chemistry, and a somewhat accidental minor in history. Eventually I would like to teach high school science, though I wouldn’t mind putting that accidental minor to use and getting certified to teach history as well. I look forward to being able to encourage students to explore their interests in the same ways I was encouraged to explore mine, and hopefully impact at least one student’s life in a positive way.
While I haven’t had any formal experience teaching I worked as a camp councilor at the local Boy Scout Camp for several years and have experience from that time teaching both boys aged 11-13 and adult leaders, although rarely in a classroom setting. I was also lucky enough to have a past job guiding out of state troops down the Yukon river from Eagle to Circle in canoes, and this past summer I worked for the Bureau of Land Management as a park ranger in Chicken, Ak.
I look forward to learning more about all of you and classroom management throughout the semester. Best of luck to everyone!
