Choosing a career is not an easy task. As a child, I never knew what I eventually wanted to grow up to be, but in the back of my mind I would always say a teacher because I come from a long history of teachers in my family. One of my grandpas was a high school math teacher along with coaching the football team. My aunt is an elementary school substitute teacher specializing in special needs students, while my uncle is a high school history teacher. While, my father is a physical education teacher who has taught at both the elementary and high school level. Growing up around so many teachers made me think I was destined to be a teacher, although at the time, I was not passionate about it, until my senior year of high school. Senior year I decided to take a child development course where I had the opportunity to volunteer daily at an elementary school. I quickly fell in love with the students and decided that inspiring young children to succeed was my calling. It was this opportunity that made me decide that becoming a teacher was my destiny. Last year I declared as a Child and Adolescent Studies (CHAD) to peruse my dreams of becoming a teacher

This will give learners a strong base to build upon, setting students on the path to be successful in high school, and go on to be career and

While growing up and observing my teachers at school, I have learned that it isn’t always an easy job. Teachers do everything they can to teach their students’ academic, social and other formative skills. Plenty of my teachers have to deal with complications, most of them being minor, but it isn’t always an easy job helping children, teens and young adults. As a student myself, I know they can be stubborn, unwilling to learn, aggressive, and irresponsible. Sometimes, they simply don’t care. However, that is a teacher's purpose: to help and shape their students to become better learners, so that they have a clearer understanding regarding a variety of subject matters. Someday, I actually want to become an elementary art teacher, which is
I have taught students ranging from five years old to nineteen years of age. Hence, being an educator, I have learned that learning is always shifting, therefore I must keep improving with the incessant changes. As a little girl, I have always dreamt of being a teacher and I have carried out that dream. My career journey started as a substitute teacher, a floater between classrooms, an assistant teacher, a teacher, a center supervisor, and an educational supervisor. I presently work as an Educational consultant for Danya International LLC. As an Educational Consultant, I able to review and aid with the learning environment of teachers and educational management in a school
I believe that education is the key in developing today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders. Education is the basis on which individuals develop their self-concept and the desire to become more knowledgeable. I want to become an educator because I am interested in helping elementary students become active learners and also to assist with their social skills. I believe I can make a difference to many students as they start their educational foundation. I feel that all teachers should possess the desire to devote their hard work and efforts to their students’ educational success. I view teaching as not only one of the most respected careers, but also as one in which the rewards are great and many
What is an educational career? Most would think of those first days of preschool. While others would say when you are introduced to any form of education, whether it be from a TV show or book for children that are too young to go to school. I believe that it starts when you have an interest in learning. For example, at a very young age, I found myself getting jealous of my older sister being able to go to school all week, while I would stay at home playing and keeping myself busy. It got to the point where I would be moping around while she got ready or begging my dad to let me sit in the room with them while he helped her with her homework. Eventually, my parents got tired of this because I began to get flashcards and early learning books from the dollar store that I would happily work on for hours. These are the times that come to my mind when I think about the time my educational career began.
Every since I was little, my grandma would lecture me about how education and work can payoff in the future. Right there my life goals begin to form and I wanted to be a person my family could be proud of. One of those goals were making a lot of money to help my grandparents pay bills for the house. As I start to go deeper into my educational career the goal of becoming an Architect begin to form. My personal life and aspirations are shaped by family, Culture, and Education.

Becoming an educator is very important to me. Not only am I building a relationship with children, but I am also building their brains for success. Attending school helps build my future career path and gives me the understanding of children. The position in education I would like to have is becoming a first-grade teacher working at an elementary school. The school I plan to work for is a public school meaning students are acknowledge for their independence. In this school environment, it has a lot of excitement and motivation. I have visited the school many times, and it makes you feel like you are at home. This school also provides after-care for students who needs to be watched while their parents are at work or doing something important. The after care at the school provides free tutoring, educational games, and a snack. While furthering my investigation on this career, I feel this job is a good fit for me because it provides motivation and it acknowledges you as a person. It helps provide all the satisfaction needed and more. The staff is well mannered and the facility is always clean.
Completing my twenty-sixth year as a building administrator has been the ultimate career position that I have encountered and experienced in my educational endeavors past or present. I began teaching in 1979 at the first grade level and taught for ten years at the elementary level. I later sought to get my masters in Reading due to the fact that it was such an important subject for young children. During this time I began realizing that I would love to be an elementary principal. I had taught under several different principals and I saw the strong and weak in each of them. My goal was to become a productive leader by helping teachers broaden their educational expertise and producing a strong learning environment for the students attending my school. I spent the first twenty five years at a small rural school in Lawrence County named Black Rock Elementary. The last two years have been at Walnut Ridge Elementary within the same district. Both schools have been a positive experience. The remainder of my time will be at this school for the next three to four years at which time I plan to retire. The ultimate career goal at this time will be to teach at a small college.
Since I was in fifth grade, I knew that I wanted to be an elementary teacher. It simply started off with liking school and my teacher. Then, as I was grew up and gained a better understanding of individuals with personalities, I thought that I could fall in love with special education as well as elementary education. I’ve had great experiences of being a teacher’s assistant for various classrooms and getting to working with children of all different backgrounds. Some children live their life's harder than others, but that is alright. That just means I have to do my job and find a teaching style that they can understand to help them grow to their full potential. I have also worked with many elderly individuals who have
Furthermore, I am a great student that has goals set and is a determined worker. I do plan to go to college to pursue a degree in early childhood education. When I graduate from college I want to work in an elementary school as a kindergarten teacher. I am truly determined to do this because I am in a teacher cadet class and I also work in Edventure Children’s Museum during the weekend. I want to become a teacher because I think it will be amazing to have someone to look up to me. My students will be able to see me as this hero that is going to be there for them all the time and, also someone that is teaching them many new things. I want to be the one other than my
