Each school year should allow for personal growth and academic progress in the educational careers of the students. My primary goals as a teacher are to foster and encourage independence. When a student needs assistance to successfully transition to the next grade, I collaborate individualized instruction with personalized tutoring. Sometimes there are gaps in the foundation of learning that need to be fulfilled. I teach precise study skills and thorough organizational methods to show a student how to learn, not just to get the answer. Learning is about the process, not the product. Education should not only satisfy the state’s academic standards but also build character, teach communications skills, and the skills needed to be a life-long learner.
