As a teacher, I will work to fully provide opportunities for authentic learning, where every child feels valued, safe and included. My goal will be to find occasions every day to nurture independent learning, along with peer support that promotes a sense of personal growth and achievement. I recognize that every child has strengths and weaknesses, special talents, and specific needs, regardless of individual challenges. My objective will be to model appropriate behavior and show acceptance of everyone
The passion of education that my parents instilled as well as my cultural values drive me to pursue a Ph.D. I want to be able to give back to my community; I hope to fulfill this by conducting research in underrepresented populations, like the Latino population.
I was born and raised in Haiti and moved to the United States in 2006 for a better education. After completing middle and high school, I decided to attend college. Because I came from a poor country, I am always motivated to strive for greatness. I grew up seeing people
After teaching my first math lesson in a 3rd grade classroom at work experience, I was not sure on how good I taught the math lesson to the students. A few minutes before I was about to leave the classroom this little boy named John came up to me and said, “ Thank you for helping me learn my nines of multiplication.” I was so stunned at what he said, my heart sank into my chest and I could not stop smiling. I felt so accomplished that I just helped this little boy that was struggling with multiplication of nines for awhile. It felt rewarding knowing that he learned something from the lesson I just taught. From that experience, I definitely know that the education field is where I belong. With the love and support of the person that influences me in the education field, and my driven attitude and strong work ethic I think the education field is my fit.
Without your Tex book Scholarship support, I would never have achieved my goal. My major is Human Development. I am taking 13 units for this fall 2015, and volunteering at Horizon Cross Cultural Center where I can learn my skills and my experiences. My future plan is graduate in the Spring of 2017. After graduation, I plan to work full-time.
My work experience as a human services worker has developed in me a deep passion for liberty and justice. Later this month, I will graduate from SUNY Empire State with a Master's Degree in Social Policy. I enjoy doing research, and I am very adept at understanding and working with technology. I have the ability to teach and train others, both in a one-on-one and in a group
I am also passionate about making sure that my work reaches all people regardless of income, gender, race, socioeconomic status, nationality, etc. I’m passionate about helping those in need and those that lack resources. I primarily seek to work with people in lower income communities and hopefully work on projects that could help rebuild and grow those same communities. Major topics and issues that interest me in education are women’s health, public health, and managed care. My purpose now is truly fueling my passion.
I wish to continue my education, in a career that would considerably influence and assist others. I am extremely motivated regarding a field which uses the activities that are most significant to people as the foundation and end goal

Philosophy on Education Education entails individual human development in the cognitive, emotional, creative and social areas. All children are entitled to a free education regardless of race, cultural background or handicaps. For education to be an effective part of the students life, the student and teacher must be actively and enthusiastically involved in learning. A teacher needs to be well prepared and organized. They need to know the perspective goals for each student and ways to achieve these goals. Teachers need to work with students to help them grow and develop ways to use their knowledge.
In the fall of 2017 I will be attending The University of Houston in Victoria, double majoring in psychology and education being a full-time student planning to become a teacher for the deaf making a difference in the disabled world.

Education is a very important part of society. I feel that it should teach children how to function in a society, and learn the basics they will need to expand on for the rest of their life. I feel that it is used to teach moral, and ethical standards of living. The schools are used to help the children learn to function in life, and achieve the goals of their choosing. Education is important because without it I firmly believe that society would be a very savage institution. With the things that we teach in today’s schools we give the power to know the basics such as reading, writing, and math but we also give them the ability to function in a society. As a teacher I hope to set my student of fire. I want to see them come alive with a desire to want everything that is out there for them. I want to be able to make a difference in just one person’s life. If I can do this I would feel I have done what I am supposed to do. I want my students to know the world is theirs to take and do with it whatever they may choose.
I believe that as a society we must seek to better our education through any means possible, as early as possible and as much as possible. As teachers, it is our duty to give students the tools necessary learn, as well as instill in them the desire to do so. By expanding our knowledge, we are not only gaining a greater understanding of what is around us, we are also becoming more
Jean-Paul Sartre believed “Existence precedes essence,” (Peura, 2001) meaning people are born and must define themselves through personal choices. I firmly believe that students should be ready for the world, and in their preparation, their decisions will set the template for the life they live. As a teacher, I will handle providing my students with the skills necessary for them to be able to work through problems and conflicts that come in confronting the world and people. Just as Sartre expressed in his Theory of Value, education is to help humans being come to terms with his/her project. My goal as a teacher is not merely to teach math it is to guide my students towards finding
