Life is indeed very much like a jigsaw puzzle. Life experiences are “puzzle pieces” that tell a story. My family represents the cornerstone piece of my life puzzle. Both of my sons were instrumental in steering my path towards teaching. I was their first teacher to nurture the importance of a good education, instill strong morals and values to support their growth and development into responsible and empathetic individuals in our society. Three very special people have been uniquely foundational to shaping the person I am today and the type of teacher I will be. First and foremost is an undergraduate college professor who helped me realize my strengths and weaknesses. Improving weaknesses are best accomplished by setting short term goals, creating a broad network of relationships and continually improving oneself. Another exceptional individual was an oil company executive who taught me the fundamental key to working with others. In order to accomplish a given task, he believed it was necessary to learn all about people in order to motivate them and gain their trust. The third individual is my 1st grade master teacher who sharpened my skills to teach young students effectively. She believes that good communication is a vital component to success. My goals are to emulate these qualities of excellence as I work to support the academic learning and social growth of students in my own classroom. To cultivate and inspire young minds to perform their personal best at all times. I will use best practices to teach the district adopted curriculum which aligns to grade level Common Core standards to achieve the goal of being college and career ready. My program will address various modalities of learning. I will set scholarly expectations for my students because the growth that is seen when expectations are high is truly amazing! My classroom will be similar to that of a laboratory where students are engaged in learning. They will learn how to work cooperatively together and share their good thoughts and ideas. I will draw on my students’ natural talents and strengths, develop their weaknesses, encourage them to learn from their mistakes and stimulate their capacity for learning through rich and engaging learning experiences. During the CalStateTEACH credential program, I spent 16 months student teaching in a 1st and 4th grade classroom. I learned about my students, discovered techniques for improving classroom management, created engaging lessons, differentiated instruction and assessed student learning in a heterogeneous classroom. I learned that the partnership between child, parent, and teacher is crucial to student achievement. My hope is to develop students who can think critically about their world, act responsibly and develop a sense of internal motivation to perform their personal best on a continuous basis. As a 21st century teacher, I pledge to create a warm and inviting classroom where all students of diverse backgrounds feel respected, comfortable and welcome. ALL students will feel empowered to learn and contribute positively to the growth of our classroom learning community. Together, we will celebrate victories and students will feel proud of their accomplishments, both large and small. Teaching is a lifelong position of opportunity for self growth and creativity. I am passionate about helping young children become confident and luminous learners. My educational background includes a B.S. in Consumer Food Science at the University of California, Davis and a Multiple Subject Credential through California State University Monterey Bay CalStateTEACH Teacher Preparation Program. I am also GLAD™ trained in Guided Language Acquisition Development which is beneficial to all students including English Language Learners. My professional experience is diverse and represents a broad network of experiences that highlight my expertise as an Elementary Substitute Teacher, Small Business Entrepreneur, Customer Relations and Resource Center Manager and Food Scientist.
