I Value Most As An Educator

“Education is not simply filling a pail, but the lighting of the fire” (William Butler Yeats). What I value most as an educator are success and integration. With success comes fame, recognition, status, power, and influence. I believe in integrating all possible resources to engage, not to entertain, students in achieving a substantial learning environment that is vital for student success. As a math teacher it is always my goal to instill critical and analytical thinking skills which are vital and essential for a future citizen that help in visualizing and solving complex problems. As a 21st century teacher, I firmly perceive that students differ in how they learn and how they prefer to learn. Additionally, I recognize that technology integration and blended curriculum along with positive relationships with stakeholders are key factors in my students’ success. I feel delighted and accomplished when my students compliment that I am successful in preparing them for college. It makes my day when students tell me that they learn something every day, call me as an amazing teacher, and count on me when they feel nervous and need support. Students venture out with explorations and say that they conquer math without fear. My patience, encouragement from time to time, the great sense of humor, being a perfect mentor I get thrilled and inspired to hear when most of my students and colleagues call me as their favorite teacher and Math as their Favorite subject.
