It is my belief that through education, an individual will receive the skills and tools that are necessary to build a life that is successful. Within an education setting, it sound be encouraged continuously to solve problems that the individual will face even out of school. I believe that as teachers, it is our duty to ensure that learning takes place in a safe, open, and supportive environment. For that, students will learn the importance of working with others.

Learning occurs when a student is fully engaged in the process, makes a personal connection with what is being taught, and applies the knowledge in experiments and in experience. When that occurs, the student is inspired to become engaged over and over again.

Therefore, it is extremely important to determine each child’s dominant learning style and monitor each student’s academic progress through a variety of assessments. In order to plan instruction that draws upon each student’s strengths to improve their academic development.
The talent to build meaningful relationships with students and the determination to “go the extra mile” are two of my strengths I’ve learned I have from teaching ECE. Through a development that is honest, open, and and respectful, students will know that I understand them and accept them for the way that they are. I have made a commitment to working as hard as necessary and spending as much time as necessary to make students successful, both emotionally and academically.
To sum it all up, my goal as a teacher is to instill a passion for learning within all my students while providing them with an educational environment that is encouraging and positive. I hope to provide the skills and tools necessary for success and foster the individual talents of each student, giving them confidence to achieve their dreams and the goals they have set for themselves. I believe that students will look back on their time with me and remember me as a teacher who genuinely cared for them and their well-being. My peers will recall me as a teacher who was always eager to participate and a mentor who actively contributed to growth and development of the school community.
