Like Mrs. Williams, I feel that building relationships and a culture of respect and trust is key to being an effective leader. As a teacher, I spend a good amount of time at the beginning of each year building a rapport with students and families which helps me connect with the students. As a leader of teachers I feel that being supportive of my faculty and staff will be most beneficial in helping develop a productive work environment and develop a necessary level of trust with all of the staff under my supervision. I also want to be participative and achievement oriented. I have always had a drive to be successful in all I do.

I believe that every child can succeed when matched with a wonderful teacher, I believe that the circumstances you 're born into shouldn 't dictate your chances for success, and I believe that a strong education system is necessary for America to be great.
One of the reasons I want to become an educator is because I want to have a positive influence on a student’s life. I think in today’s society it’s crucial for students to feel like they have a positive role model. I have seen what a large impact teachers have made on their student’s lives. That has made me to want to strive and do the same. Another reason for choosing this profession is that I simply love working with children.
My goal as a future teacher is to help them to develop these potentials by believing in them as capable individuals.

Throughout my fantastic two year job role as a tutor, I have grown to love and aspire to make a difference to a child's education. After receiving training including the National Curriculum methods, I have developed planning, teaching and marking skills, using various resources to support a child. Additionally, I have undertaken work experience at Moat Farm Primary school. I was able to observe and provide support for the children during lessons. It was intriguing to observe the teachers approach of implementing various methods and strategies into teaching.

I have a deep understanding of what it takes to be a teacher, and know that through my experiences, I am ready and excited for what this profession has to offer me and what I have to offer the profession.
I consider myself to be a good role model to students and staff alike and I am committed to leading by example.

I view teaching as not only one of the most respected careers, but also as one in which the rewards are great and many opportunities to touch the lives of students are provided. I am a proponent of the educational philosophy of Progressivism. I agree that experience is a very important component of problem solving. I feel that problem solving is a well-desired skill for all children to learn because it will help them throughout their whole lives.
