Ever since I was in Kindergarten, I have always been an aspiring teacher. I was inspired by my kindergarten teacher to be the best I could be. She pushed me everyday in her classes and installed within me a drive and a passion to help any child in need be able to be able to know that they can do anything they put their mind to.
The older I got, though, the more my aspirations changed. I still wanted to help young people, but that idea expanded. I began to love the art of dance, so my dreams developed into creating dance groups, and ended where I am now, fitness cardio.
I am a current Zumba Instructor. I have a license to teach Zumba, Aqua Zumba, Strong by Zumba, and Zumba Kids and Kids Jr. I am all about helping anyone to get where they'd like to be through fitness, and so much more.
Even though I became a dancing guru, I still love the idea of helping others educationally. I am currently in college and will be obtaining my Early Childhood Education degree this December 2016. I long for the day that a young child will look at me and explain how I made a difference in their life, as my teacher did for me.
What is your teaching philosophy?
All children want to learn. As an early childhood teacher, I can identify with the importance of obtaining an education very early on. Children are eager to know anything and everything their little minds can grasp, and I feel there is a specific need for people just like myself to feed them exactly what they want. Being able to work with a student to help them to identify something new is like receiving a present on a day that isn't your own birthday. It's a wonderful feeling! My goal, as a teacher or tutor, is to provide a safe, loving, and encouraging environment where any child will feel encouraged and motivated to freely learn and express themselves through education.
