Meet Paulina

Hello! My name is Paulina and I am a UC Berkeley student majoring in molecular and cell biology (with a concentration in immunology) and minoring in CalTeach. CalTeach is a wonderful program that provides me with loads of classroom teaching experience and allows me to earn my STEM degree and graduate with a teaching credential at the same time. I am currently only two courses away from finishing. Through the program, I have student taught in many classrooms around the Bay area, including Kindergarten, 7th and 8th, and high school classrooms. As a student teacher, I have made and delivered lessons and received constant feedback on my teaching methodology. In addition to this, I also have had many years of one-on-one mentoring experience through Big Brothers Big Sisters and an on-campus organization called Project SMILE and a life-time of experience as an older sister to a hyper younger brother! Last Read more year, due to the pandemic, I took a gap year and worked full-time with two twin kindergarteners, primarily helping them with their distanced learning curriculum and providing extra support and enrichment lessons. I created balanced schedules of classwork, outside time, arts and crafts projects, and lots of reading. I am energetic and very loving. I love arts and crafts and being outside. I try to inspire critical thinking and problem-solving behaviors. I value kindness and empathy and make it a priority to help children understand others' (and their own!) feelings. I also have my own car and I am fully vaccinated! Since I am back in school I am looking to be an occasional babysitter in the Berkeley area. Feel free to message me for more information! :)
