"I love to be there, right at the “start,” helping students propel them to their success. I love seeing how a non-reader learns to read and finds the joy in exploring literature, fueling imagination and expanding the world. I love to see students excel in math and feel as if they are years ahead of their classmates. It is this wonder, awe and curiosity that I see in students, which in turn excites me about education. I believe that any student can learn and master a subject given the right motivation. My motivational strategies begin with building a strong relationship with the student. Once the relationship has been established, I convey that I expect excellence in their work and behavior. We jointly set rules and realistic expectations. Short-term goals are set and once achieved they are celebrated. It is important that the teacher gives frequent and early positive feedback that supports the student’s beliefs that they can do well. Praising is tried and true positive reinforcement. I believe in helping students find personal meaning and value in the material at hand. I love to create an atmosphere that is open and positive that helps the student feel they are valued members of a learning community. I encourage students to compete against themselves in their work. At first I run through material to establish a base line then keep track of how much they improve (speed and accuracy)." less...
