Learning should be an opportunity for constant discovery, whether of new information, experiences or personal aptitudes and interests. No matter the subject matter, it should always offer instances for character formation. Students should be challenged to try and learn new things with special attention to various learning styles and educating the whole child--mind, body and emotions.
My experience has been primarily in the humanities in my ten years as a classroom teacher. I am particularly well-versed in writing (essays), reading skills, vocabulary and grammar and public speaking. I also have a great deal of experience in character education. Creating original and timely lessons for courses I have taught, I incorporated opportunities for intellectual inquiry and creativity. In the diverse communities in which I have worked, I have strived to be a presence of acceptance and encouragement for all students. I have sought to enthusiastically learn new things and challenged my students do the same, as learning is a life-long journey.
