Liberal Studies Alumni Feature
Middle School Teacher, Math and Science
"I couldn't imagine attending school without taking more courses in Humanities and Social Sciences or exploring various academic areas. Liberal Studies at CSUF was the best fit for me!"
It had always been Laleh’s dream to teach. She believes that in order to be an effective teacher, it is important that one be an enthusiastic learner. Prior to CSUF, Laleh attended Cypress College for 2 years. “I enjoyed every moment of being enrolled in courses such as philosophy, history, and science…I couldn't imagine attending school without taking more courses in Humanities and Social Sciences or exploring various academic areas. Liberal Studies at CSUF was the best fit for me!” she explains.
After graduation Laleh entered the credential program at CSUF where she completed a Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential and went on to teach elementary school for 4 years. Being the enthusiastic learner that she is, from there she returned to CSUF where she earned a Master’s degree in Education with emphasis in Mathematics. Nowadays she teachers Math and Science at the middle school level.
In her experience, Laleh has found that most educational organizations emphasize the importance of teaching “21st Century Skills” in their mission and their actions. That is to say that students should be “strong problem solvers, critical thinkers, and communicators at a global level.” She believes that the curriculum, faculty support, and welcoming and collaborative environment offered by the Department of Liberal Studies prepared her to effectively uphold that mission.
