I have always lived by the Golden Rule, to treat everyone the way you want to be treated. This is not a difficult task for me to support. I have always had a mindset of equality and fairness. My exposure to various races and ethnicities has always taught me to do right by others. This is no different than how I manage my classroom or conduct me anywhere I may find myself. This is important that everyone is cordial and respectful to one another. Holding this rule in mind makes me a better educator and an all-around better human being.
I absolutely love making sure each student that I encounter, whether individually or in a group setting, understands the concept that there can be "fun in learning".
I have taught English in all sectors - middle school, high, and even college-level courses. I love to read and write, and all that goes along with those concepts. I adore bringing English to life - especially since a few other disciplines think that English (language as a whole) is not a critical subject - and this is why I am so enamored with teaching this subject.
