Annaliza Lagrutta

Bio:
B.A., Psychology, San Francisco State University
M.A., Counseling Psychology, National University
Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

I earned my B.A. in psychology from San Francisco State University and worked for 6 years with an international Landscape Architecture firm. During that time I had the opportunity to travel and learn how psychology impacts the decision of architectural designs in our environment.  I returned to my hometown of Stockton and attended National University to earn a M.A. in Counseling Psychology which has always been my passion. While in my Master Program, I worked with developmental disabled adults in the community. For the past 16 years I have been Mental Health Clinician providing services to adults who are mentally disabled on an outpatient basis with San Joaquin County Behavioral Health.

I am a passionate learner and appreciate the experiences of learning new things to enhance my understanding of my field. I am a lifelong learner who appreciates all aspects of education. I believe a good education can transform lives and positively affect our community. My goal as an educator is to support my students in making their own unique impact on society. I believe all my students can succeed in their dreams of the future.

Some of her adventures have included hiking the great wall of China, riding a camel around the pyramids of Egypt, diving in the Philippines and Great Barrier Reef, witnessing the great migration of wildebeests in the Serengeti, trekking in the jungles of Thailand and volunteering at a rehabilitation center in the Amazon Rainforest to help trafficked wildlife. She trys to incorporate examples of class material from around the world. In Intro to Psychology when she and her class discusses research methods such as naturalistic observation, she will use her experience chimp tracking in Uganda as an example. When they discuss positive reinforcement, she gives an example of how she used this as a teaching tool for local orphaned youth during the summer she spent in a remote Ethiopian village. After returning home from Mardi Gras 2012, she brought bags of beads and other parade prizes to class and threw them out to students who could answer a series of review questions for an upcoming exam. The grand prize for an especially challenging psychology question was a set of beads thrown by Will Ferrell, the 2012 Bacchus Mardi Gras King!
