I believe that it takes a certain type of person to be a teacher. A teacher must be able to instruct and facilitate simultaneously. The students must be introduced to new topics but must be allowed the opportunities to further their understanding through both experience and exploration. It will be my job, as the teacher, to create this atmosphere in which the students establish a communal sense of self-motivated learning. When the students are in an environment that runs on intrinsic motivation, the teacher can expand lessons to further understanding. The teacher must incorporate alternative resources such as community offerings, technology, as well as parental involvement. Teachers have an ability and obligation to assist children to become self-assured, lifelong learners. While this power can be intimidating, I am extremely excited to take on this challenge.
