I’ve always wanted to be a teacher
I’m very excited and looking forward to a wonderful year. I’m so happy to here at Linkhorn. As a new teacher, it’s a learning process and reflecting on everything every single day.
What have you learned so far after one week?
You need to be flexible, especially in the first week. You don’t know your students yet, so some things you think might work…you really don’t know them. I have a morning class and an afternoon class, and they are completely different. At the beginning of the week I had the same things for each class, but I can’t because they are totally different.
What drew you teaching?
I’ve always wanted to be a teacher. I remember I moved in first grade and I was so shy. I was the child who did not talk. I was so shy moving to a new school and my first-grade teacher, Mrs. Kalp, made me feel so comfortable. And that, well, I will just remember her forever. I want to be a teacher like that for my students.
