Personal Statement

Personal Statement

We learn by doing. As active participants engaged in worthwhile hands-on, minds-on experiences, we construct our own meaningful understandings. At all developmental levels, in order to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, and socially, students need a safe, caring, and stimulating environment. Students benefit from working together in a respectful, kind, democratic learning community asking and answering questions and thinking critically to solve problems. It is my privilege and responsibility to nurture rapport and a relationship with each student so she can meet her fullest potential. I need to meet each student where he is and together we can build from there. I need to affirm students’ efforts, progress, and thought processes. It is my responsibility to help students better understand themselves and others and progress towards more sophisticated understandings and advanced skills. Students need to be effective thinkers and lifelong learners. I am committed to fueling a love of learning.
