If YOU can believe it, YOU can achieve it.
Any form of learning should be fun, hands-on, intentional, uplifting, and reassuring. I have learned that an excellent teacher is not just someone who explains. Not someone who just demonstrates. An excellent teacher is someone who inspires. An excellent teacher goes the extra mile. They can take any individual and make them believe that their hopes and dreams are within their reach. An excellent teacher will not let a learner walk away until every question is fully explained and completely understood, no matter how long it takes. It is important to embody the academic aspect of one learning, but their social and emotional learning should come first in order to foster individual growth.
I have completed Master’s coursework, engaged with mentor experiences, and learned different techniques and theories of learning. Because of these experiences, I make it a point to educate the whole child by building relationships, being engaged, being excited, being a listener, being available, and being an example. I not only want to inspire the children who will represent our future but uplift and empower parents to be the support needed for those dreams to be accomplished. This is the reason I became an educator.
