Teachers should strive to bring out the very best in their individual students, and help each child realize his or her own potential and own dreams. At the same time, teachers should prepare students to live in a broader world, exposing them to new ideas and the diversity of the human experience while giving them the concrete tools they need as citizens of their towns, nations, and world.
I am currently enrolled in a program to receive an authorization through UCLA and the State of California as a Certified Teacher of English Learners.
Currently, I work as a teaching assistant for K-5 students with autism, providing both one-on-one instruction in a separate classroom and inclusion service in general education. In addition, I have worked as a volunteer teacher in after school and summer programs.
