  2. 2. Pre M.A.T. Background<br />Hello, my name is Dana Taurisano. I graduated from Utica College in 2009 with a B.S. in Chemistry and a minor in Government. Prior to attending Utica College I was enrolled at Mohawk Valley Community College (MVCC) for 2.5 years. At MVCC I studied Biology, Public Policy, and Chemistry. After graduating form UC, I began substitute teaching and it made me realize I had a vocation to help students succeed academically. <br />

I found SUNY ESC to be the most cost effective and convenient way to earn my degree. After beginning my first classes at SUNY ESC I began working as a Teacher’s Assistant. <br />

  6. 6. Math TA Experience<br />It is now the start of the 2011-2012 school year and I am a Math TA at JFK middle school which is also part of the Utica City School District. I specifically help students who are struggling with mathematics. <br />
  7. 7. My Future Classroom<br />I will learn about real life applications of chemistry in my classroom. <br />I will incorporate culture in to my lessons.<br />I will be focused on mastery style learning as opposed to competitive learning.<br />Students will work with all other students in the class by the end of the year.<br />My classroom will be well organized.<br />There will be NO REQUIRED HW! <br />
  8. 8. I want my Students to…<br />Be engaged!<br />Be excited about learning!<br />Enjoy coming to my class!!<br />Be technologically literate!<br />Be scientifically literate!<br />Express themselves freely without fear of judgment!<br />Be safe and responsible learners!<br />Take their learning into their own hands! <br />
