Career Goal: Physics                     Education


My name is Layla Marie Quinones and I am aspiring to become a High School Physics educator. I am currently a student at LaGuardia Community College completing my Liberal Arts Math and Science degree with a core focus in Physics. In this portfolio site you will be able to find some of my course work, educational philosophy, professional development plan and more about my goals for my future career as well as my education. I have always had a deep passion for Physics as well as teaching young people. I believe that in the future I will be able to inspire my students and enable them to appreciate Physics as it pertains to their everyday lives. In addition, I hope to make an impact in the lives of my students to enable them to succeed, despite any obstacles they might face. When I think about my future and my journey to success I can't help but recalling something I read:
 "Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings; so you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for. Prefer knowledge to wealth, for one is transitory, the other perpetual."

This quote alone describes the reason for my passion in learning and I hope to convey this message to all those I come in touch with.
