As an educator, I have sought out positions such as Early Literacy and Bilingual/Migratory schooling that
strengthen and enrich my teaching. This has reinforced my commitment to engage all
of my students in authentic learning activities, emphasizing connections to their own lives and the world around them.
I firmly believe that problem solving skills - defining a question, seeking out and evaluating relevant information, and
synthesizing a response - are the most important tools with which I can endow my students. I emphasize
experience as an important source of information, and provide my students with the opportunity to
encounter new material in a variety of settings.
I seek a position as an elementary school teacher, in which I can continue to grow as a learner and an educator.
