- I support general freshmen, as well as freshmen admitted into the OSS Program, which caters to the students' needs in math skills improvement. The students in OSS failed the CUNY math placement exam, but have received another chance to take a math course and do well in order to remain a student at the college. I supported the OSS students mainly through the OSS Bridge that took place before the commencement of classes.

Total # of Students Supported:
I support a total of 51 students. Though, one student informed me of dropping the course due to schedule conflicts, so the total may now read as 50 students.
*I supported an additional 112 students who registered late and, therefore, didn't receive the same amount of support as my other students.
- For the Spring 2017 semester, I will be supporting two classes of first-year students. Most of these students are second semester freshmen, who were not enrolled in a First-Year Seminar during the Fall 2016 semester. A few are either first-semester freshmen or transfers.
First Year Seminars (FYS) are general education requirements, meaning they are needed to graduate. These seminars are small classes designed specifically for freshmen. In these classes, students work more closely with supportive professors, as well as various members of a Student Success Team that includes a peer success coach, an academic advisor, and a career specialist. The dynamic of these classes is meant to further the development of students' academic and career interests.

How I would like my students to describe me:
I would like for my students to see me as a reliable and trustworthy peer who has their best interests at heart. I would like them to describe me as a responsible and dependable peer success coach, who always finds time to discuss any issues or problems the students may be having. I want them to describe me as caring and energetic. Being someone who can elicit laughs and conversation from my students is my goal, and I want them to be able to feed off of my energy, which in turn will make this semester that much more exciting and enjoyable.
How I would like my supervisors to describe me:
I would like my supervisors to describe me as a reliable and enthusiastic employee who is truly passionate about the work that she does. I want them to see me as an approachable and warmhearted individual who is supportive not only toward her students but also toward her other colleagues. I want them to see that I am dedicated, in that I will do everything it takes to ensure my students' comfortability within this new collegiate environment.
