I love seeing students becoming invested into the STEM projects and collaborating with students about their theories and future ideas. I really enjoy working with the students and forming strong relationships with them.
In high school, I have always wanted to be a teacher. This job opportunity is a perfect stepping-stone! I am in my fourth year at the University of Windsor, and working towards achieving a bachelor’s degree in education.
My advice is to get out there and volunteer! It is the best way to gain experience, skills and helps with figuring out what you like best.
I enjoy reading thriller and mystery novels. I volunteer at the summit centre for preschool children with autism. I also enjoy yoga!I enjoy reading thriller and mystery novels. I volunteer at the summit centre for preschool children with autism. I also enjoy yoga!
I create weekly program plans that consist of STEM learning activities for students in grade 3-6. We work together to plan and write lists of items we need for science experiments etc. My background in STEM helps me to solve on the spot problems and make decisions that will aid my students learning and understanding about the process. I work with other educators and collaborate with them, thinking on ideas for next major projects.
