I strongly believe that education is the key to success for young students. My experience in the
classroom has convinced me that an educational approach that actively engages students and
fosters in them a desire to achieve is the best key to this success. As a teacher, I aim to provide a
stimulating learning environment that encourages students to trust their own opinions, while
promoting confidence in order for students to develop their own conclusions.
Through my teaching experience thus far, I have found the method of facilitating rather than
dictating to be a highly beneficial method of instructing. It is my strong belief that the social
sciences are a crucial component of educating students to achieve their full potential and become
active and useful citizens. By utilizing a variety of teaching approaches and engaging the students
in active learning, I believe my classes can achieve the goals of having students think rationally, yet
compassionately, and develop and defend their positions fluently in written and oral argument.
I have come to realize how vital education is in the preparation for young people to achieve success
in all endeavors set before them. I hope to instill a love of learning and a desire for constant
knowledge within each student.
