I can still remember coming home from school after an exciting day in the first grade. I would go straight to my room, line all of my dolls up in the floor, and “teach” them everything I had learned earlier that day. But of course, not every child who pretends to be a teacher in his or her early years actually becomes a teacher. So although I enjoyed “teaching,” I never really considered it as a choice for my life-long career.
As a fully qualified teacher, current MAT program student at Strayer University with 10 years of varied experience in education, there’s much I can offer to the education of children. I have more than 19 years of experience in mentoring and coaching teaching in both public and private schools throughout the States of Georgia and South Carolina. I am confident and passionate in my abilities to teach, as well as integrate technology, development and meet the individual needs of my students. Together with my skills and experience, they will enable me to make a significant difference at your educational institution. I have the desire and strong interest in all areas of education and committed to promote a positive, dynamic learning experience and
I’m currently a new student at Highline community college who is trying to keep up with the fast pace and pressure of college. I want to be successful and pass all my classes with good grades but, I know I can’t do it all on my own. All the resources we have available to us as students are very helpful such as tutors, counselors, and financial aid advisers and I intend to take full advantage of all the resources available to me. It’s very important to me that I pass my classes because I am paying out of pocket, unlike most students who are on financial aid, or scholarships. It’s my first time being back in school since I dropped out of high school 2 years ago so I am facing many challenges
I seek to join Teach for America to give back to low income communities I have always had a passion to serve my community, rather if it was by volunteering at the local Boys and Girls Club, visiting the elderly, or lending a helping hand at Habitat for Humanity. If given the opportunity to join Teach for America I would be able to not only serve a local community but also teach the future leaders of America. I believe that a quality education should not be upon the basis of race or family income, but from the quality of the educator that comes in contact with each child. It is as if the quality of the teacher can somehow have an everlasting effect on the students that he or she comes in contact with. It is an endless cycle of an unmotivated and uncaring teacher’s coming into school districts and helping to further hinder the students. The
I am a great teacher and am passionate about achieving my goals. I have several years of teaching experience and my enthusiasm for teaching children has only grown.
The nature of students is that of an instinctive ability to learn. Students of ages and all grade levels reflect their surroundings and respond according to their interpretation. Naturally it is not only the influence of a classroom that shapes a student but many outside factors that determine students’ goals and abilities; for example, healthy encouragement from parents. Students may find a natural ability to perform in one area of education and with help may fine tune their ability to better their understanding of other areas. Students have a better understanding of education when it is relevant to their needs and everyday life.
I understand what kinds of students are needed in this organization. In order to meet the request, I tried my best to stand up in the areas of scholarship, leadership, character and service. For academy, I am a passionate student who likes facing challenges. I maintain a G.P.A of 4.0 for two years, and became the top 2 students in my Biology, Algebra II, ESL, Honor Pre-calculus classes. I am also a math purple team member and attended the state math competition.
Teach for America has had its share of controversies. The organization has placed TFA corps members into positions previously held by veteran teachers. Some districts are laying off veteran teachers and replacing them with TFA to ease budget issues. The practice of laying off veteran teachers and replacing them with TFA has been reported in Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, and Washington, D.C. (Heilig & Jez, 2010). Veteran teachers are having to compete with Teach for America recruits for teaching positions despite their lengthier training because TFA recruits are cheaper than teachers with experience or advanced degrees (Hootnick, 2014).
My desire to teach has been a long time coming, with parents who have a background in education, it was bound to happen. Dulles FFA has presented numerous opportunities for me to better learn how to teach young adults. Not only has it taught me how to be a successful leader in my community, it has taught me the In’s and Out’s of the
As an early childhood educator, my mission is to encourage, inspire, support and motivate students while providing a fun, safe, and affectionate environment which builds friendships and lays the foundation for students to become life-long learners.
I 'm currently serving as a 2013 Corps member for Teach For America. I joined teach for America because I believe in their mission that all students deserve an equal an excellent education. I also joined because they work with schools where students are growing up in poverty and low income communities; a resemblance of my past. You see, we become our worst critics and even the mir image of success vanishes when our thoughts become clouded with fantasies; imaginative thoughts of the impossible. I longed for success, making it clear that the riches were of no importance to me. To others it appeared that I yes she, is writing her own story; untold was the beginning.
I would like to be part of Teach for America due to my love and ethical responsibility to teaching students. I have an ethical responsibility to teach because of my in-depth knowledge of student development in the areas of physical, social/emotional, and cognitive domains of children. Another aspect of my ethical responsibility that verifies why I would like to be a part of Teach for America is that, like Teach for America, I believe that every student deserves an education that is developmentally appropriate and meets their individual needs. I would be working alongside professionals whose main focus is on the concept of equity for all. Every student has the right to education no matter their race, gender, or economic background. Coming from
They are also supporting by offering classes for nurses to better themselves or to renew certifications. Lake Health seems to have a trend of continuously offering events such as support groups, classes and screenings for the community. They continue to have future plans of research, having good technology, and ways to keep the community educated. I feel as if I could get a job on a Medical Surgical floor and work my way up at Lake West, which is why I chose them for my contingency employer. They are willing to accept associates, diplomas, and bachelors. They offer tuition reimbursement which is a positive along with a retirement plan. I also chose them because it is a short drive and they sometimes rotate their nurses to Tri-Point. They offer
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
