I am Carla Sittig and have taught for 19 years. I began my teaching career in Louisiana where my husband and I are originally from. We moved to Texas in 1998 and in 2006, Hurricane Rita prompted us relocate to Raleigh, North Carolina. We have lived in New Bern since 2008. My experience includes elementary, middle school science, publications, video productions, and school level tech facilitator. I served as a media coordinator for the past three years until moving into the role as a Digital Teaching and Learning Coach for Craven County Schools. My husband and I have two children. Our oldest attends ECU with only three semesters left and our youngest is a senior in high school.
This is Abdulftah Yahia. I want to let you know that I have completed my student teaching and will complete my degree by August. I will be a certified teacher in Social Studies by the upcoming school year. As you know, I would love to teach at Strong. I believe my connection with the students and parents makes it an ideal situation for me. As a person who grew up in Yemen and in Melvindale, I could help the students adapt to their new surroundings. In addition, I am familiar with many of the Yemeni families living in Melvindale. I would love to help in fostering our overall development as a community in terms of education and assimilation. All in all, I am confident in my abilities to work with students and find myself to be a strong candidate
My name is Yetunde Dan; I am a dedicated educator with the desire to inspire and motivate students to achieve their best. My primary mission as a teacher is to help students build their self-esteem and increase their thirst for learning. While also demonstrating profound work ethics, cultural sensitivity, and
I’m writing this letter in favor of Debbie Branson becoming a substitute teacher for the East Valley School District. I have had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Branson for over seven years and have found her to be a very contentious and hard working individual. Ms. Branson has always gone above and beyond my expectations concerning any task that she might be working on.
I hope to build a relationship with every student I teach and let them know that their individual talents and personalities are appreciated. I believe that every student can learn when they are accepted for whom and where they are in their educational journey. Every student has potential to learn and should not be discouraged by personal setbacks. I hope to inspire Dweck’s philosophy of a growth mindset in my students where they believe that they can learn through dedication and hard work. Effective learning requires collaboration between teacher, students, and parents grounded in mutual trust and respect. Therefore I believe that the teacher should also have a “growth mindset” and take feedback from students, peers, and parents in order become a better
I had my job shadow at West Liberty Middle School and I chose this school because I have been there previously. I spent the whole day at this school and learned a lot throughout the day. I am a family friend with the teacher who teaches seventh and eight grade English. Although I do not plan to teach middle school I still enjoy and learn a lot going to this school, because there’s a very diverse group of students from my different backgrounds. I feel like shadowing this school is much more realistic to the difficulties I may encounter as a teacher, therefore I benefit from shadowing this teacher and school.
As a teacher, I have seen students who are gifted; students who can hear information once and it sticks. I have also seen students who become frustrated or apathetic; students who think they can’t do something or choose not to do something because it poses a challenge to them. Having just completed my second year of teaching middle school and high school English, I reflect on this past school year and am reminded that I have chosen a challenging career, but those challenges are miniscule when compared to how fulfilling it is to see a student truly excel. As a teacher, nothing is more gratifying than coming across a student who is motivated; a student who isn’t afraid to put in the work to reach his goals; and a student who not only shows academic excellence, but pushes himself to be the best he can be as a son, an older brother, a member of his community, a volunteer, and a captain of the soccer team. That student is Trevor Fancher.
I believe each and every student is capable of learning and achieving academic success, however some children require individualized support to ensure their success. A strength I posses that supports high academic expectations for all Houston ISD students is my ability to motivate and empower young children of all types to want to be successful. I am committed to creating a classroom culture where high expectations are set and most importantly constantly communicated to students. I have the ability to lead and differentiate engaging lessons where the diverse learning needs of all students are supported. I am a teacher that believes high academic expectations will be met when lessons are presented in a way that suits all learning styles. I use classroom management strategies to set students up for success.
This week’s meeting with my mentee David went very well. We discussed about the campus resources on school and talked about his academic standing in his classes. I felt pretty confident with campus resources because of previous experiences with my mentor. Also, I utilize the campus resources binder in the Prospect's office to gather more information about the different types of resources there is on campus. After talking about the different resources, we then walked to specific resources that would benefit David and learned more about it there.
It is with great pleasure that I am writing this letter for Mrs. Amy Wingerter in her pursuit of a teaching position in your district. As a Special Education Coach for the Lower Dauphin School District for the past three years, I have had the pleasure of working closely with Mrs. Wingerter in her capacity of Special Education teacher for our full-time emotional support program. Mrs. Wingerter cares deeply for the students, takes pride in developing the program, and is never willing to stop growing as a teacher.
Daniel is a bright and active child, always ready to communicate with others, and very attentive to details in class and changes in peers, or adults around him. Actively, engages in any discussion in class and he learned how to control his obsession of having things the way he expects.
The volunteering tutors in the previous objective will ensure that in their tutoring sessions, Michael’s assignments and projects are done in their presence and are reviewed by them to ensure optimum work is done for the highest grade possible.
I am excited to share that we have hired Jessica Gerson as the Long Term Sub for both Jarret Izzo and Anna Winchell. Ms. Gerson will begin spending time in Mr. Izzo’s class this week to best prepare for the transition. Mr. Izzo’s baby is expected to arrive anytime now. Upon Mr. Izzo’s return, Ms. Gerson will spend time shadowing Mrs. Winchell so that she is prepared to take over her class following the February break. We are excited to be able to have her available to support both classrooms.
I, Paytin Robillard, graduated from Grambing State University in May 2016. I am currently seeking a teaching position or a position to be a substitute teacher.
