About Angelica

All my life, I have been inspired by teachers and would not be who I am today if not for them. The teachers who I remember most were the ones who were passionate about what they were teaching and helping students succeed not only academically, but in life. But it wasn’t until I completed a Christian Service Internship during college, working as a volunteer teacher’s assistant in a school for underprivileged children that I started to hear the call to become a teacher myself. As I saw myself engaging with the children, I was moved by the impact I was having on them as well as the impact they were having on me. In a short span of time I grew to love these children, and I saw how a gentle, caring word and a smile could go a long way.

After graduating with a B.S. in Psychology, it was interesting that I was not getting job offers in the field of psychology, but in the field of education. So there I was, working as a Teacher’s Assistant at a tutoring center and as a Substitute Teacher. As a substitute, I was successful in my Teaching assignments. However, I always had this nagging wish that I could be a better teacher and do more for the children. I had a strong feeling that because I kept coming across opportunities in the field of education, that it is my calling to teach. All of these experiences working in school and school-type settings have left me with this certainty: Teaching is hard work, but the rewards are great and go beyond the money that you make. For instance, what can equal the reward of boosting the confidence and self-esteem of an awkward child, laying groundwork that will lead them to receive top honors in grade school and high school, and eventually to a great college and a bright future. I love Teaching because I love connecting with young people and having a positive impact on them, and because it is satisfying to share with others any knowledge or experience that I have that may help them grow as human beings.
