Give graduating senior Alexandra Estigoy Daniels a few years, and she’ll be right back in a high school classroom.
“I kind of want to be a teacher while I’m getting my engineering degree,” said the Mare Island Technology Academy valedictorian, who will graduate on Thursday.
Daniels will head to the University of California, Berkeley, this fall, where she will be an engineering, mathematics and statistics major.
While earning her degree, the 17-year-old is considering enrolling in CalTeach, a Berkeley program that places engineering and math students in schools as teachers.
