Picture of Maria Veronica Solano

I am an education volunteer facilitator and college instructor. I coordinate a volunteer project that brings together college and high school students for science and technology, and I’m a volunteer myself. After many years dedicated exclusively to teaching, I wanted to expand my scope of service and share what I’ve learned in these twenty years of bringing science and technology to students, and help others to teach as well.

 I’ve worked for more than twenty years in education at all levels, from a child care setting, elementary and high school science teacher, college instructor in English and Biology, to teacher trainer in hands-on science activities. This is why I understand and appreciate the effort teachers make at all age levels.

 I’ve always being a pioneer in bringing interactivity to education. I lobbied for lab activities in the high school and college where I worked. The Biology class I taught in the Psychology major was the only one in the country that gave future psychologists a glimpse of a real brain and opportunities to explore nervous systems in a real life setting. I started a science open house with my college Biology students, where they shared their research with the community. This event was so successful that the whole Humanities Department adopted it, becoming the Didactic Department Fair where all majors share their interdisciplinary projects with the community.

 I’m passionate about unity in diversity. I have a very diverse family with several races and continents united in marriage and children. I’m always happy to learn about new cultures, new foods and new places to visit. I think our diversity can be an engine for unity, as we are fascinated by each other’s cultures and desirous to learn about each other. I consider online education as a great opportunity for students to explore not only the subject matter, but also the wealth of knowledge different cultures bring.

 When I’m not working you can find me reading a good book, working on my vegetable garden, building crazy robots with my family or exploring the world.
