Middle School Science Teacher
I graduated from the Department of Geography and Geosciences in December 2012 with a degree in Earth Science Secondary Education. My undergraduate coursework and experiences provided me with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully obtain a full time teaching position.
Following graduation, I taught fifth and sixth grade English abroad in Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand to over 800 students with limited classroom resources and materials. After returning to the states, I was hired as an 8th grade Science teacher at a highly diverse and challenging middle school in Glen Burnie, Maryland where I carefully honed my skills. Within one year I was promoted to interdisciplinary team leader and was asked to collaborate with Loyola University’s Education Graduate Program as a mentor teacher.
I would not be where I am today if it were not for Dr. Zaprowski introducing me to the Earth Science Secondary Education degree during my sophomore year as an “undecided” undergrad. Salisbury University was a wonderful experience for me in terms of academics and career preparation as well as building strong and lasting friendships. It was an honor to have been part of the Department of Geography and Geosciences and surrounded by such a variety of highly intellectual and interesting individuals.
