My ultimate goal is to become a High School Physics teacher. I hope to provide for my family, maintain a home, and have at least one child. To that end, I hope to attain my Associates from SLCC so that I may transfer to the University of Utah in order to obtain my degree in Physics and begin my career. More than simply attaining my Associates, I hope to learn the material well, and I hope to pick up on some teaching methods/techniques by observing my professors.
My short-term goals:
- Obtain Associates from SLCC
- Purchase house
- Obtain Bachelor’s from University of Utah
My long-term goals:
- Excel at a career as a High School Physics teacher
- Further my education (Master’s, PhD)
- Raise a child
Learning Outcome: The SLCC Learning Outcome goals for the Associates in Physics program can be found here: http://www.slcc.edu/aap/inst-prod/plans-results/re_Physics_6-10.pdf. The goal of gaining “substantive knowledge” in mechanics and electrodynamics fits well withing my short and long term goals. I will need this knowledge in order to succeed in the Bachelor’s program at the University of Utah, and it is these two topics that I will be teaching in High School.
