Over the course of many years, my teacher identity has changed and grown through a plethora of environments. Most significantly, I have had the privilege to engage in educational research in conjunction with onsite student teaching. Both experiences have significantly shaped my personal views on education, and have instilled within me a passion to design and teach a rigorous and culturally relevant curriculum that can push a diversity of students to invest in their education.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

In my teaching, I aim to ensure that students receive the individualized support they need to independently further their education.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I will work to model effective learning strategies and tools for students, and provide opportunities for guided independent practice afterwards.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I would assess my student's needs and the task at hand, and work to model the task they need to complete through examples. Then, I would gradually have the student independently practice the task at hand, while I monitor.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Depending on the task at hand, I would encourage the student to consider and remember the ultimate purpose behind what they're doing. For example, if a student is seeking help for test preparation, I would remind the student that a higher test score will provide for more options for college, which could give the student more control over where they spend their college years.
