Occasional Teacher (2013 - Present)
As a teacher, I think that my students would say that I am energetic, creative, and knowledgeable, but they may also mention that I have high expectations. First and foremost, I always try to convey my genuine interest in the material that I am teaching. I understand that as a teacher, I am a role model for my students, and that my passion for learning has the potential to spark a desire to learn in my students. I consistently try to create positive and inviting learning environments for my students by routinely motivating them to put forth their best effort, and by using inclusive language. I am a naturally optimistic person, and always urge my students to think positively in the face of discouragement or alleged defeat.
