TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught for three years and specialize in math and science.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like for kids to think for themselves and I expect 100% participation everyday from my students. I am not looking for the right answer every time, sometimes I just want to see that they are trying. In my classroom we are very hands on and love to explore everything with some sort of activity or project. We also work together as a family and not just classmates.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Growing up in my household was not easy and the things that were going on behind closed doors was something a child should never have to come home to on a regular basis. My home was on a battlefield right in the front lines of an uncivil war. Day after day you could hear nothing but screaming and yelling which always ended the same way. In the end my mother always seemed to be the only one retreating with bandages and bruises because another battle had been lost. I never wanted to come home from school or church and would stay as long as they would let me they were my bomb shelters. What I remember most was my Pastor and his wife who listened and talked with me and led me closer to the Lord. I became extremely involved in church and would go to puppet, dance, and choir practice every week. My favorite was singing because ever since I was little I would sing anything that came to mind and knew that one day I would be a famous singer. I thought I had everything figured out but the Lord had a better plan for me. My Pastor asked me if I would be interested in helping out with the kinder-church for the three and four year old. I agreed and wound up becoming the Sunday school teacher, teaching and ministering to young children there for several years. I worked with a wonderful and kind lady named MaryAnn who also shared the same passion as I did. I really enjoyed spending all my time preparing lessons and planning activities together. Working with MaryAnn was the best time of my life. If it wasn’t for her and my Pastor I would have never have found what I was truly meant to be in life which is a teacher. Being a teacher is not an easy job and your hours of work are endless. There are teachers out there who just punch the clock and leave and have no care in the world about the children they teach. To me teaching is more than worksheets, paychecks and weekends off, it is all bout the children. When I become a teacher, I want my students to be running inside my classroom eager and ready to go. I want them to know that my classroom is their classroom and that they are safe when they are there. I want my students to know that I am not only their teacher but their friend as well and that my door is always open to them. A good teacher is someone who listens to what each child has to say, goes out of their way to get to know them and their family and gives each child the love and support they need to succeed. I know I have these qualities and skills in me and will make a wonderful teacher one day. I have always said that “Teachers are the keys to unlocking a child’s future,” and it is up to us to provide them with as many doors as we possibly can. I want to be a teacher that children will remember for a lifetime just as I remember those who took the time to listen and help me. I don’t want children to ever feel like they are alone because I know how it feels to need someone who takes the time to care and listen.
