Personal teaching statement: I hope to be regarded as a teacher who deposits seeds into the lives of students to prepare them to not only dream big, but to actually achieve their biggest dream. So, I consider, “What seeds are pivotal to impact the life of middle school students even in adulthood?” From the seed that instills hope when they are faced with discomfort, the seed that provides confidence when faced with uncertainty, the seed that equips them with knowledge to create a life of opportunity, and the seed to think critically to make meaningful decisions, I seek to empower students to know they are capable of becoming the best version of themselves.

Why you chose the field of education: I chose the field of education because I wanted to emulate a life that paralleled my “School Angels” when I was a student. Physically scarred and emotionally defeated, I would catch the bus every morning to go to my safe haven of “School Angels” known as my teachers. It was as if they were gifted with a potion to make a young girl forget all about pain and to focus on joy and happiness through learning. I was able to escape feelings of loneliness and helplessness and experience feelings of importance and belonging every day. So, being an educator ensures that I, too, can be a “School Angel” for students who need to be seen, heard, and loved the most.
