My Introduction for EDU657
By Erin Schilke
A little bit about myself...
I live in beautiful Coeurd'Alene Idaho with my family. I was born and raised here and cannot think of any other place I would rather live and raise a family. My husband and I own our own business, and have two children. Our daughter Hollie is now 22 years old, and our son Coleton is 19.
Hobbies & Interests
I am an avid outdoorswoman who dearly loves gardening and growing many unique species of plants. I am also a huge lover of animals, and enjoy raising my two parrots & a small herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats. Some of my other hobbies are reading all kinds of books, tutoring high school & college students, and traveling.
Major & Education
After graduating from Coeur d'Alene High School I attended North Idaho College and received my Associate of Science Degree. I later received my Bachelor's of Animal Science from the University of Idaho. I am a huge science buff, especially in topics of zoology, biology, and microbiology, and after completing my Masters degree, hope to teach biology/zoology online and/or at one of our local community colleges.
Reason for Taking This Course
One Thing I Know About Teaching in Higher Education
The one thing I know about teaching in higher education is that my students will be very diversified, and the ages will vary anywhere from teenagers to retirees. I will have to keep in mind that there will be students from several different generations, and plan my lessons accordingly.
