Teacher, Smith Mountain Lake Good Neighbors (SMLGN)-Moneta, VA
- May 2017-June 2017
- What I Did: I worked with other interns and we created different lessons to teach the kids in our classrooms. Through science, writing, reading, and art, we created a summer’s worth of enrichment lessons that focused on diversity, healthy emotional coping and being accepting of people who are “different” than them.
- What I gained: I learned how to be adaptable. There were times that I had to cover for other interns so I would have to teach for their class. Sometimes we would only have a morning to prepare for their class. There were other times that lessons that I planned were not appropriate for the age group, so I had to readjust it to a level the kids would understand and grasp. I also learned patience on a whole other level. Some kids were off of their medications for the summer so they could just be that–a kid. And sometimes it would lead to having to focus on that one child and their needs and allow another intern to help take over and teach the rest of the class.
Los Alamos National Labs- Los Alamos, NM
- June 2014-August 2014
- What I Did: I was a research assistant to Dr. J. Gao. I worked in the Bioscience Department and did research regarding cells and new technology that will allow us to study them more efficiently.
- What I Gained: I was able to utilize my lab skills and nearly perfect them. Dr. Goa was a wonderful mentor and he taught me the procedures and precautions that labs follow. It was a great experience being able to work in a National lab and learn important protocols, how to read other scientist’s protocol’s to duplicate experiments, work with state-of-the-art technology such as microscopes, and learn how to culture cells and keep them healthy for research.
