About Candess


Bio

I like to make an impact in the lives of children growing up today. As a teacher, I develop a vision for what I want to achieve, motivate others to work with me, and work relentlessly, despite the many challenges I’ll face along the way to meet my goals. My hard work will change my students’ life prospects.

We must ensure that all children remain within the circle of learning by meeting their individual needs. We have responsibility for educating all students in the district,...

I like to make an impact in the lives of children growing up today. As a teacher, I develop a vision for what I want to achieve, motivate others to work with me, and work relentlessly, despite the many challenges I’ll face along the way to meet my goals. My hard work will change my students’ life prospects.

We must ensure that all children remain within the circle of learning by meeting their individual needs. We have responsibility for educating all students in the district, regardless of their abilities, race, color, national origin or creed. I also recognize that the entire person comes to school, and that the school cannot ignore his or her health, character and total personality development.

My educational philosophy has evolved from years of reflective, open-minded self-evaluation. I like to frequently “step outside the box” and look at what I have presented. This may result in a new approach either philosophically or practically. I have learned that to be successful, I must accommodate differentiated learning styles and varying levels of abilities. I must subscribe to a wide variety of teaching methods and strategies. Being aware of the aspects of the multi-cultural community and the diversity of learning styles allows me to set high, yet obtainable expectations. These are upheld by fairness and personal role modeling.

All children require a constant commitment, enthusiasm and patience. I strive to reach the trusting heart of each student through persistence and involvement. I am involved with each student in the classroom through one-on-one interaction, guided practice and by paying close attention to performance. I am quick to praise, reassure and encourage. My classroom environment is based on a “consistent, firm, fair, and friendly” attitude. My motivation and enthusiasm for the content is matched by the student’s classroom behavior.
