Hello and welcome to your exploration into a career in Education!

I have wanted to be a teacher since I was five (yes, five!), and I am excited to be able to help others consider careers in teaching.

I teach Education 80, which is an introductory and exploratory course in careers (primarily teaching) in Education. ED 80 requires students to think deeply and creatively about the Education field in the United States.

IF you are interested in working in a classroom, there is also ED 80L, which is offered at the Cabrillo Watsonville Campus; ED 80L is the service learning lab which gives students the opportunity to work in a K-12 classroom alongside an experienced, credentialed teacher. Requirements for enrollment and completion of ED 80L (the lab) include: attending a mandatory orientation (which takes place one week prior to the beginning of each semester), attending weekly classes, fulfilling service learning requirements (which equals 56 hours for the semester), and reflecting on what it means to be a teacher. The ED 80L service learning lab can either be taken concurrently with ED 80 (the lecture) or upon completion of ED 80.
