Why I love education...

For two reasons, one because it is my dream, and two because I want to make a difference for good.  I was raised to teach.  When other little girls were dreaming of their wedding days I dreamed of the classroom I would teach in and the places I would study.  I would teach my siblings, I would teach my dolls, I would teach anything that was still long enough.  Teaching is one of my passions.
I have been fortunate to have several amazing teachers in my lifetime.  Teachers who loved to learn and shared that passion with their students.  Teachers who would not give up on a child.  Teachers who made the boring interesting and learning a life long quest.  I have also had teachers who made me want to give up.  Teachers who never learned my name.  And teachers who made me hate subjects.
I want to be the type of teacher who will change her students lives.  I want to share the excitement of learning, the joy and the power of hope.  I know as a teacher I will have the ability to touch many lives.  I will be able to provide many children with a strong base to build upon in later years.  I am so excited to make a difference one child at a time.

  1. If you remember the teachers who inspired you and try to emulate them and the teachers you loathed and try to wipe out that memory with your own teaching, you will be a great teacher and you will connect with your students and be able to teach and learn.
