I believe in getting to know the students I work with; therefore, I can develop an educational plan base on the needs of the learners. I know that students can be motivated and engage in the lessons especially when their prior knowledge and ideas are incorporated in the lessons. I believe Knowledge is not knowledge until it is given to those who will receive it.
I am a lifelong learner who plans to pursue my Education Doctoral Degree beginning October 2014. My goal is to continue to acquire a variety of instructional skills that will increase student achievement among struggling learners.
