To Teach or Not to Teach:
My Early Years
Ever since I was a child, I have always wanted to be a teacher.
My desire to teach began when I received an easel for Christmas.
I used that easel to play "school..."
I would make worksheets for them to complete...
Then, I would grade them.
...I read books to my younger sister.
Along with playing "school..."
I know that I was meant to become a teacher.
This field placement consisted of many amazing experiences.
So, every time I attended my field placement...
During these moments of working with this particular student...
On the last day of my field placement...
...this is what I was given:
I'm really going to miss working with those students.
...with my sister & neighborhood friends.
One boy really struggled with reading & writing.
I would review vocabulary words with him.
I began to realize something.
I would be willing to do
everything possible to help him succeed!
Also, while reading a story
to a different group of 1st graders...
I realized how much I enjoyed doing it!
The encouragement from my friends and family
has given me confidence to pursue teaching.
When I asked them why they thought I would be a good teacher
this is what they told me...
"You are one of the most patient and caring people I have ever known."
- Dema Iskander
"You are very personable & selfless.
You always put others before yourself." - Rosella Loduca
"With your personality & passion, you will
leave a huge, positive mark on your student's lives."
- Melissa Maurer
Overall, I truly want to make a difference in a child's life.
I know it will be hard work,
but I'm willing to accept the challenge.
Therefore, my decision is...
I could tell he wanted to learn his words
but he lacked self-confidence.
