I believe all children can learn and they are our future. As teachers, we are responsible to impart knowledge, encourage discovery, build positive relationships, and foster a love of learning. To meet these challenges, teachers must be lifelong learners to understand and meet student needs in our ever-changing world.
I chose to enter the teaching profession to help children gain knowledge, increase their self-esteem and impact the future. I had a couple of teachers who took a real interest in me during difficult times in my life. I wanted to be the positive, caring person in the life of children. For children to learn, they must feel important.
Remember we are all lifelong learners and no one is perfect. Always put forth your best effort. You determine your future!
