Teaching empowers me, my students ignite a passionate positive energy that drives me to want to be the best educator, advocate, and person I can be. The ability to influence, enrich and possibly inflict change upon the future through the realm of education inspires me. Through teaching I get the opportunity to take my love for the English Language and impart my acquired knowledge upon others, following the standards and learning objectives of course. I was assisting a student with her personal statement, who exclaimed, "I'm never going to college, I don't know why I am wasting my time" We talked through her fears about applying to college, and decided that her dreams weren't unattainable. Her realization of her potential was rewarding for her, but it was even more rewarding for me as an educator because I have made an impact on a student who was in a sense hopeless. I believe students need educators who are compassionate, empathetic, and relatable because students do not learn from teachers they do not like. Students, need a champion to promote and encourage their success and social awareness and I am willing and ready to be that for the students I will serve.
