UWSP (Elementary Education)
My name is Jordyn W. I am a 20-year-old Colorado native. I recently moved here because I want to continue my college education at a university level. Let's back track a little so I can give you background on myself. After graduating high school in 2012 I lifeguarded and taught swim lessons. I had been doing this since I was in high school though, so I wanted something more. I then went to the local school district and applied to be a substitute paraprofessional. I began subbing in schools around the district and found that I love working with children who have special needs. With this being said I searched until I found a full time position as a paraprofessional. For the past two years I worked in a significant support needs classroom, and loved ever minute of it. But deep inside I still wanted something more. This is why I decided to move and finish my degree.
Now that I am a full-time student and have my end goal in mind, I wanted to challenge myself and give myself more goals to achieve. Seeing the positive side of my situation my goals are to accomplish growth in the professional and personal working relations. These goals consist of: obtaining experience in multiple fields while attending University of Wisconsin, build on my communication skills with adults and children, establish positive working relationships, and join working teams and emerged and become functional with the team timely. With my goals being stated I feel I would be a positive addiction to your child's education and I feel my past work experience will help me be successful. Knowing that my end goal is to have my own classroom, I also know that I need experience in more than just special education to become a successful educator. With this being said I feel there is a lot I can learn and grow on. Becoming successful in my other jobs and watching myself grow has been a great achievement. Yet with my outgoing personality and fast learning I still want to push myself further in my great adventure here in Wisconsin.
Working in an elementary school you learn the fundamentals to make a student successful because you learn what the programs want to students to learn and comprehend and the skills they need to obtain through Common Core.
