I believe that every student should be treated as an individual. The whole “one size fits all” approach to educating fails to recognize the different idiosyncrasies of a child’s mind. Every child learns at his or her own pace, and it is imperative for a teacher take that diversity into account when constructing lesson plans. Focusing on individual talents helps mold independent thinkers, which should be the ultimate goal of an educator.
In high school, I interned for Class! magazine which focused on the experiences (personal, creative and educational) of local high school students. I received an advanced high school diploma in 2008. I received my Bachelors in liberal arts (English) in May 2014.
I have experience tutoring students one-on-one.
I was a youth counselor from 2010-2013 for a mentoring program called Pathfinders for children ages 12-18. I also write fiction (short stories) and poetry. I sing alto for a praise group at my local church and participate in fundraising concerts for different charities.
