"I am the worker that adapts myself to each person, and a leader

that works collaboratively with each and every employee. No two

people are alike, so why should I address them in the exact

"I am the worker that adapts myself to each person, and a leader

that works collaboratively with each and every employee. No two

people are alike, so why should I address them in the exact

same why and expect the same results? I can’t. This is why I

obtained my Special Education credential in the first place. I

believe that every person has the ability to learn, but as a teacher

and professional, I should be a lead learner, and learn how each

person learns most efficiently. I am a huge proponent of John

Dewey’s Philosophy of Education. Like him, I believe that people

learn best through organic experiences. I do everything in my

power in assisting those experiences to manifest in any way I am

able. My former coworkers often joke that if you don’t find me

giving a lesson in my classroom, try the play structure on the

field. It’s hilarious that they recognize I am a little unconventional

at times in my methods, however I do not think that people can

always learn within four walls. Leaders need to lead and must

think outside of the box. My most impactful lecture was actually

delivered on a play structure, as I taught my students about

being selfless and gave them a project to design and develop

their own non-profit organization. I like looking at life in a unique

and different way in order to make learning exciting to each

person. I am willing to try techniques in my workplace to see

what benefits people most. I am not afraid to fail in my job, as

failing is part of learning and subsequently a part of life.

However, it is how I overcome failing that makes me an exquisite

candidate for any position. My students and instructional

assistant all teach me on a daily basis and enable me to be a

more impactful leader.

With my k-12 certification I have had to master common core in my profession.
