My name is Danielle and I recently moved to Chicago where I have completed my coursework in becoming a full-time teacher and have passed all necessary professional knowledge and subject exams. My certification comes from Rio Salado College in Phoenix, Arizona. While waiting for my teaching license I have utilize this time productively by becoming a substitute teacher. As a substitute teacher, I have gained further experience and knowledge in regards to helping students succeed both inside and outside of the classroom. Not only did I serve as the instructor when the teacher was absent, I also spent time providing one-on-one support and instruction.

Throughout my courses and time substituting, I have learned that as a teacher you need to able to adapt to your student's needs. To help overcome this challenge I utilized my strength and ability to think outside of the box to provide the assistance and instruction necessary for success. With this ability, I have been able to look at the big picture and adapt myself so not to conform to the saying "one size fits all". Instead I have been able to adapt myself and think outside of the box to help those students who may need special assistance or even just additional help. It is this ability that has made me successful, as both a student teacher and substitute teacher, as it allowed me to ensure each student had the understanding of concepts before moving forward.

Another challenge that I have noticed throughout my observation that as students it is easy to be overlooked. It is my mission to see that none of my students fall through the cracks and are provided the necessary remediation, distinction, and extension for success. One way I will help achieve that goal is to be the influential individual that I know I am. With this behavior, I will make sure that no student is left behind as we begin our trek up the mountain of education. And to help keep the students' enthusiasm about their education we will celebrate "wins" along the way.

I look forward to this experience ahead and serving as a tutor for all future students.
