I believe that education is a key factor to a thriving community and society. I often find it exciting that I am teaching some of my friend’s children. Not only am I influencing their academic success but I am also helping to shape them as productive citizens. I want them to know they are in a safe and stress-free environment where they can express themselves as an individual.
As my role in the classroom, it is my duty to teach all students as I want them all to succeed in academics and in life. The teacher facilitates learning and makes the classroom a world of knowledge. Rather than give the students the answer, I am here to provide and guide them down the path to arriving at the correct answer while questioning how to get there. It is important for them to discover this answer on their own.
As a teacher, I feel I owe all my students my attention, my love of teaching and that my main goal is their success in and out of the classroom. My students will also learn that respect is earned and not giving out freely.
