When I was young, I was told in school that I learned things backwards, and hearing that was hard at times. Thanks to my parents, I kept studying and made good grades. When I got older, I realized that I just learned differently than other people. I’m a kinesthetic learner, and not the type of person that can listen to a lecture and learn. This inspired me to be a teacher. I want to help students figure out how to best learn so they don’t struggle with school the way I did.
I love to teach what I learned to someone else and watch them get excited about it. When they get that aha moment, the moment the light turns on and they understand, that’s the best part for me as a teacher.
