I Want To Becoming An Elementary Teacher

Decent Essays

Growing up, I would always force my five brothers to sit down outside on the grass and play school with me. I was, of course, the teacher, and I would give each one of my brothers some paper and a pencil to write down notes. I loved teaching them what I had learned in class that day, it gave me a feeling of joy knowing that I taught them something I actually understood. From there on, I knew that I wanted to be an elementary teacher. I want to help children learn and be able to see the joy on their face when they learn something new as well. During my elementary years, I enjoyed school but as I advanced into high school, I did not enjoy classes much. Being shy, I was always nervous to talk to my teachers and ask for help so I would ask my friends to ask for me. When I was in junior year of high school, I had an English teacher who always encouraged us to go up to her and ask her for help with anything we needed. I was really hesitant to ask, but I did and realized that she was genuinely there for her students. She was the only teacher that I actually felt comfortable speaking to. She made me feel like I was a student in the classroom and helped me enjoy my last years of high school. Every child should be comfortable with their teachers and feel important in that class. Sadly, there are not very many teachers that can actually provide that space for their students. Now that I am older I see so far beyond and want to be a person who makes a positive impact on a child's life.
