Why I Became a Teacher

Teacher

I have wanted to be a teacher ever since I was a little girl. My mother is 2nd grade teacher in Lowell, MA. She showed me, from a young age, the amazing impact a teacher can have on a child. I wanted to grow up and someday be able to help a child reach their "ah ha" moment! I believe that children are our future and I am just here to help their future be brighter! I became a teacher in hopes of affecting students the way I was affected when I was young. Providing them with more than just knowledge, but a basis and a respect for learning, growth, and curiosity that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.

My Teaching Philosophy

Teacher Apple

My beliefs on teaching are pretty simple - EVERYONE CAN. I believe that if someone is willing to do something, learn or grown, than everyone can accomplish, everyone can succeed, everyone can grow. It is my philosophy that what students are exposed to and develop when they are younger can have an enormous impact on the rest of their lives. It is my mission to help instill the belief in my students that they can do anything they set their mind to!
