I first became interested in primary teaching while working as a dance teacher at Kwazulu dance studio, in which I owned for 3 years. This made me realize I enjoyed working with the primary age group. My AA in Primary school Education courses at University Of Phoenix has served further to fire my enthusiasm as well as my BA in Early childhood Administration that has continue to prepare me effectively to take responsibility for my own center. My degree has trained me to effectively meet common core standard of teaching.During my degree I have undertaken teaching experience in Title I and behavioral health schools. These included schools in inner city deprived areas and a school for at risk youth. These practices have given me a good understanding of the primary curriculum and of what makes effective teaching.

During all of my field experience I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd ,4th and 5th grade concepts and used it to enhance my lessons with interactive white boards, the internet, videos, voice and sound clips, digital cameras, interactive games and work sheets. I have worked with teachers to plan the curriculum attended a parents’ evening, staff meetings and helped create and run after school clubs; and contributed to the classroom environments through interactive displays. During my third year at university I studied a module called ‘Integrating the Curriculum’, looking at global issues such as sustainability and how these could be taught across the curriculum. This made me appreciate how this approach can be useful, particularly when addressing important social, ethical and global issues.

I have a great understanding of how to teach my students to develop common core mastery.

I have studied TESOL strategies that can help students who speak languages other than English become proficient in English.

Teaching is one of the most challenging, demanding, exhausting but varied and exciting careers there are. I always look forward to working in a job that is so important and being privileged to be such a

Progression needs to be planned for, so that as Students work and explore at their own pace, there is always something else ready to move them on and take them further in their learning. I also believe that differentiation and meeting varied learning styles are key to effective teaching and learning. Work should be set at an appropriate, but challenging, level. When I carry out lessons I make a conscious effort to ensure I am not just catering for visual learners like myself, but try to see lessons through other learners’ eyes. For example, to introduce 2nd grade students to pictograms, I got the students to create ‘human pictograms’ arranged by name length, pets, eye color, etc. and then transferred that information as pictograms to the board. Kinaesthetic learners were thereby catered for in the physical movement and manipulation, visual learners in the pictograms created on the board, and audio learners as we discussed and interpreted the graphs.

I have worked with teachers to plan the curriculum, attended many parents’ evening, staff meetings and helped create and run after school clubs; and contributed to the classroom environments through interactive displays.

This made me appreciate how this approach can be useful, particularly when addressing important social, ethical and global issues. My recent study on ‘Inclusion’ has also really affected the way I think about children and addressing their needs in the classroom. I now am focused on including all children, regardless of ability, learning needs, language, ethnic origin or any other factor. I have learned how to identify and find ways to effectively aid the learning of all students and meet their needs in ways which appeal to and best help them develop, gain a beneficial experience from their education and achieve their full potential
