First and foremost, I strive to be an inspiring educator and enact positive change in my students lives. Throughout my own youth, my teachers were devoted not only to their subject matter but to their students. The encouragement provided by the teachers and mentors in my life instilled in me the belief that I can do anything I put my mind to. It is this belief that I would like to pass on to my students, giving them every opportunity to succeed. I feel it is my responsibility to impart my own experiences to others with the goal of enabling them to develop the skills they need to pursue their own ambitions.
In college I strove to combine my passion for science and math with my love of the outdoors. Through my studies I learned to see the math and the physical sciences as a way to not only understand the natural world, but to deepen our appreciation of its beauty and splendor. I endeavor to use this viewpoint to help inspire passion for STEM in my students. I believe that an appreciation for nature can be a powerful tool to tie diverse subject matter together and make school exciting, stimulating, and relevant.
My own experiences have shown me that a strong education is the greatest gift you can give to a child. It is a teachers duty to pass on their experiences to others, enabling them to develop the skills they need to pursue their own ambitions, while creating a life-long love of learning. I have always sought a means to help better this world. I found my avenue through guiding and coaching; teaching allows me the chance to make a significant difference in my students lives, and in return give me a way to do something great.
I have found my own greatest joy in learning, and hope to pass the desire to be a lifelong student on to my own pupils. This is because I care passionately about my students, and find myself drawn towards the kids who struggle, whether it is with the material or with social activities. Helping them to see the value of learning and self-growth is the ultimate reward for an educator.
As a teacher, my greatest aspiration is to leave a progressive, enlightened and positive impact on our world.
