My mission is to provide every learner with a quality learning experience. I strive to create a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate environment, which fosters individual needs.

I believe in empowering learners by offering them opportunities to make decisions and solve problems.

It is my goal that learners will possess confidence in their abilities and established lasting relationships with their peers and me. By offering an engaging curriculum it is my aspiration that each learner will develop a positive outlook towards school, a better appreciation of the world around them and acquire a life long love for learning during their time spent as a Learner.

In an attempt to fully develop my students’ critical thinking skills, during my 20 years of teaching, I encouraged them to draw what they understood from the stories in the reading and comprehension lessons. I have also differentiated my instruction by using movement education in my lessons to ensure that my students reach their fullest potential.
I believe that my positive attitude has been my greatest asset in my life, and this has especially helped me in the teaching profession. I strive at all times to create a positive learning environment for my students, which has allowed them to succeed.

I address a wide range of skills and abilities in my classroom by differentiating my core instruction in order to meet the needs of all my students. There are several ways in which I differentiate my instructions: I have students work independently, in a whole group, in pairs and in a small group. Therefore, they have a change to not only learn from me but also from others as well as themselves. I would also encourage my students to ask questions, participate in discussion as well as group activities.

Furthermore, I often asked questions about what the students are interested in so I can integrate their interests in my lessons and activities. If students are interested in a topic or activity, they are more likely to learn. Thus, they become more engaged. I believe it is important to provide small group as well as one-on-one instructions in order to truly know the needs of my students and to better understand them in an effort to build lifelong learners.

With my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction/ Reading I am prepared to instruct through the use of reading and literacy strategies for student achievement and integrate research and theory in practice.

Additionally, I am able to integrate reading and literacy assessments to improve student achievement and demonstrate the professional dispositions of a teacher of reading.
