My name is Melissa Harker and I am working towards being a high school biology teacher. The main reason why I decided I wanted to teach high school biology is because it is what I see myself doing. My bio teacher in high school inspired me. I’ve lived my whole life in San Jose, although I’ve only lived in downtown San Jose for a few years. Right now I’m living on my own, working three jobs and working on classes for my masters and teaching credential at the same time. I’m taking astrobiology because I just really wanted to take it. Sometimes I find it weird that I was able to get a degree in biology, yet I don’t feel like I know enough about biology! My life is really busy, but since I’m doing what I’ve always wanted to do, I’m happy.
This will be my second trip for a class. The first time
was in September of 2005 for my mammalogy class, we went to the
Warner Mountains for someone’s research project. Field
biology is the branch of biology I like the most, although I don’t
have the opportunity to get out much. It is a great pleasure
every time I do. I hope there are some skills that I can
learn that I can bring back to the classroom.
