Teaching has always been a favorite job of mine. I spent five semesters of my undergraduate years teaching college algebra, pre-calculus, and calculus to students at the Math Lab on campus. It was rewarding to work one-on-one with students to help them understand mathematical concepts. I also spent five semesters combined between my undergraduate and graduate years as a teaching assistant. I would lead one or two classes a week in concept reviews and, in some cases, laboratory activities. That gave me an opportunity to see how it felt to be in front of a group of my peers and attempt to teach difficult concepts. I always looked forward to working with the students, which is why I want to be an educator and mentor to the next generation of civil engineering students.

**Courses**

- Math 112: infinite limits and differential calculus
- Teaching Assistant for one semester
- Taught two one-hour classes each week with the purpose of reviewing material covered during lecture
- Graded homework and provided feedback on assignments
- Held office hours to tutor students one-on-one

- Math 113: integral calculus
- Same responsibilities as for Calculus I

- CEEn 341: Elementary Soil Mechanics
- Teaching Assistant for one semester
