4 years of Pre-K and entering my 3rd year of teaching 5th grade.
Teaching for me is an opportunity to invest in the future. I believe students are agents of change, and in order for them to succeed and lead this society, teachers need to teach social responsibility, to teach community, and to empower students to take charge of their learning, not only in school but in lifelong learning contexts as well. When a student enters my classroom they will be entering a place where their learning is the main focus. From the way the topics are taught to my management style, everything will be done with the students’ best interests in mind. As a teacher, it is my job to instill a love of learning in my students. Everything that I do in the classroom supports this love and helps the students to fulfill their potentials.
