To whom it may concern,
Teaching has always been my passion in life, whether I am teaching adults or children. When people ask me why I chose to become a teacher, I think back to all of the great teachers that have taught me. I would not be where I am today without their educational guidance, discipline, and caring nature towards me as not only a student and a friend. I teach with my heart, and always have. Teaching is not just a job, it is a lifestyle. As a teacher I am a mother, a giver, a discipliner, a friend, and most of all a learner. Learning never stops, and is always growing through my life as a teacher.
Teaching is for the kids, for the learning and future of their lives. We don’t just teach these kids math
, or social studies
, we teach them how to learn. We teach these students how to become better people, live as innovators, and prosper as thinkers. I want to encourage my students to think “outside the box”, go out of their comfort zones, and explore the world that is around them. I want to make literature
come alive for them, make learning fun and exciting from the moment that they step into the classroom.
I am a graduate of Regis University’s program in Elementary Education
.,I have acquired over 900 hours of teaching experience over the past 5 years of my time within the program, and have learned and experienced the joys of working with students and their learning goals during that time. I have also learned how to problem solve as a teacher, and approach a variety of different students needs.
I have experiences with different cultures, learning disabilities, and learning needs within the classroom. I have taught ages ranging from 6-14 years old, wanting to create as diverse of an understanding of my students as possible. I believe that as teachers, we need to be prepared to teach any age or foster any learning needs that may come our way. I have also taught in a variety of different schools, both public and private, and have been exposed to different curriculums and methods of teaching. I also have taken several ESL
classes, taking away the knowledge I need when possibly faced with an ESL student.
As a teacher, my passion is to foster student learning. My focus and drive is for the students, and to help them achieve their learning goals. I want learning to be inspiring, engaging, and fun for my students in which I teach. I believe that education provides fruitfully not only an abundance of knowledge, but also great meaning to our lives. Therefore, through the qualifications that I have for this job, I will tutor these students with the best of my ability to give them the learning that they deserve. This job would be satisfying and perfect for me as a teacher to share my passion with other people. I do hope that you consider me for this position, for I always work my hardest at what I do.
