I believe that as a teacher of teachers I am morally obligated to enter my classroom
with only the highest of expectations for every one of my students. I believe that
all students who walk into my classes are unique and that I need to provide a stimulating
educational environment where they can become effective, highly qualified and caring
educators. I provide a safe environment where my students feel a sense of community
and are comfortable enough to share their ideas. I bring an open mind and a positive
attitude to my classes in the hope that I can ultimately inspire and encourage such
traits in my future educators. The words of Mother Teresa, “I alone cannot change
the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples,” represent
my passion for teaching future educators. I am proud to be a part of a program that
is producing highly effective educators who are now in our community schools.
