How far can our students go if we meet them where they are and explain things how they learn best?

Ana always knew she wanted a job where she could work closely with people, help others, and explain complex concepts in an accessible, easy-to-digest way. She took a circuitous route to realize that teaching checks all her boxes. Ana is a 2020 graduate of Olin College of Engineering, where she learned core engineering principles using project-based learning and human-centered design and was heavily involved in student support.

Before coming to NEIA, Ana was a virtual math and computer science tutor for students from under-resourced schools all over the country. She learned about her students as unique individuals and helped build their self-confidence and bring their foundational math skills to grade-level proficiency and beyond.

Ana is passionate about human-centered design, sustainability, diversity and inclusion, demystifying math, running, and baking.

You can learn a lot (especially about yourself) from taking the indirect path. It’s not weak to be vulnerable. Root your actions in being kind, fair, and compassionate!

Yesterday, Matt Forcier of LMV Productions spoke to Baldev’s Entrepreneurship class. He presented his real-world experience as a film production business owner. Matt shared with students his process of team building, business development, and, most importantly, believing in yourself. His message was taking every opportunity to be involved in your business and focus on what you are passionate about.
