It is with great pleasure that I am seeking to secure an educational position. I believe that my passion and desire for teaching combined with my strong interpersonal skills and work ethic would greatly benefit your educational institution. I believe that education is a key to success for all people (young or old). As a motivator and advocate for pursuing higher education, I know that I will do everything in my power to encourage all students in discovering their inner strengths and abilities and determining what truly inspires them. I intend to create a stimulating online environment while promoting confidence in order for students to realize their full potential in math.
I have teaching experience at the K-12 level as well as the collegiate level. I have also learned while pursuing my Masters in Education and during my teaching experience that when students are active participants in their learning environments and are taught based on their own intelligence (also a form of differentiation) they will not only retain information longer, but they will become more confident in their capabilities. Having the past teaching experience at both the middle and high school level provides me with an advantage to understanding what they are going through when deciding on making a decision for college. I have always had a desire to make a difference in the lives of everyone that I meet and will continue to strive to possess mentor qualities and be a positive influence in their lives.
