In December 2011, I received two Bachelor degrees in Liberal Studies and Child Development.  I attained a GPA of a 3.38.  I do believe that my grades are an accurate indication of what I have learned.  Through my coursework, I have had the opportunity to observe children through a one-way mirror and conduct observational techniques.  Also, I have had three opportunities for supervised fieldwork.  I have volunteered in an infant classroom at the Child Development Lab on the Chico State campus.  During my fieldwork, I utilized my knowledge of infant's development by providing quality care and supervision based on the National Associated for the Education of Young Children accredidations, developing and implementing developmentally appropriate curriculum, and evaluating the program's routines. 

Another internship opportunity that I had was at Neal Dow Elementary School in the In-School Suspension Classroom.  This classroom is a supportive and structured environment for suspended students to work on appropriate classroom behaviors and their academic studies.  Under the direction of the In-School Suspension Supervisor, I took on a variety of duties, like guiding student's in monitoring, managing, and reflecting on their own behavior.  I performed general clerical duties and prepared materials for students.  I have learned through this internship about individual learning styles.  Based on this knowledge, I have created a learning styles classroom environment.
