What is your major/minor?
Biology Pre- Physical Therapy
What year in school are you?
I have a Fathead of myself playing basketball in high school and she is bigger than me, so I keep her rolled up in a corner because she scares me. I love the beach, but I hate sand, so the lake is the perfect combination and is my favorite place to be. I don't crack jokes anymore because I'm the only one that ever laughed, but secretly I'm the funniest person I know. My roommates are my best friends so it’s like a party every time I come home.
What do you do outside of being a busy student?
I am a sister of Alpha Gamma Delta and I work at Montaluce Winery. When I have time I like to go hiking, kayaking, and cliff jumping, but let’s be honest, who has time anymore?
How many semesters have you been facilitating?
This is my first semester.
Which courses do you facilitate for now, or have in the past?
What are your short-term and long-term goals, and how does SI (Supplemental Instruction) relate to those?
My short term goal is to graduate and get into Physical Therapy school. SI relates to that by providing me with opportunities to review material that I have already learned and that I know will come up again later in my schooling. My long term goal is to Become a Doctor in Physical Therapy and start my own practice. SI relates to my long term goal by helping me exercise patience on a regular basis so that whenever I start helping people as a physical therapist it will be like second nature to be patient when people are struggling.
What is your favorite SI moment?
My favorite SI moment is when a student in my session will ask a question and another student beats me to answering it.
What have you gained from being an SI facilitator?
I have really learned to appreciate the importance of patience while being an SI facilitator. Patience can really get you a long way in a session, especially when the student is extremely confused.
What study tips/techniques do you have for students?
My favorite study technique when I was taking chemistry 1211 was to look up problems online and to do the problems at the end of the chapter in my book.
What do you like/what excites you about the material you SI for?
I am an extremely math oriented person so the amount of math in the course is what makes me love Chemistry.
What has been your favorite collaborative learning technique (CLT) that you have done in your sessions?
My favorite CLT to use is "Think, Pair, Share" because when I was taking the class and going to SI session I liked being able to do it on my own first and then either helping my partner when they were struggling or having them help me when I was struggling.
