I want to be a teacher...

My goal is to become a teacher in the Northern Virginia area. I would like to teach the upper elementary grades.

My ultimate goal is to be a teacher that Ellen Degeneres would be proud of.

My experiences

I have been fortunate to have many teaching experiences through James Madison University.

Most recently, I have done student teaching in kindergarten at Cub Run Elementary School. There I was fortunate enough to have seventeen fantastic students who are always eager to learn and try new things.

My other student teaching placement was in fifth grade language arts. I had so much fun teaching my 62 students at Shenandoah Elementary School. These kids were so fantastic and loved fun-filled activities!

I had the once in a lifetime opportunity to teach abroad, in Northern Ireland as well. Through this experience I learned so much about myself as an educator and the education system in the United States of America. I am so proud to be a teacher in the USA.

I've also had practicum experience is the first and fourth grades, where I really discovered who I am as an educator. All of my experiences to date have made me the person that I am today.
