Biography

I am a Child Development Major from CSU, Chico. I graduate with my B.A. in May of 2016. My coursework at CSU, Chico has also included several psychology courses, as I minored in Psychology. My undergraduate coursework has consisted of three supervised placement opportunities. I completed my placements at two different preschools and also at an elementary school. These experiences have allowed me to apply my knowledge to on-floor practice with children. 

I am seeking a multiple subjects teaching credential beginning in August in hopes of teaching a first grade class.
