Having already completed my Bachelor of Education (Teaching Certification) and having taught overseas in South Korea for several years, I have become proficient in not only the specific educational skill sets needed to succeed as an elementary educator, but also the essential interpersonal skills that are needed to excel in a career in teaching. As an educator, I have demonstrated both a passion for the teaching profession and compassion towards learners. I believe that education is reciprocal – the teacher learns as much from the students as the student does from the teacher. Both need to explore education together building trust, rapport, and authentic relationships with each other. Furthermore, I believe that all students are worthy of an educator who values their individual needs and provides an environment which fosters their development.
