Teaching requires work that gives great rewards. I believe all students can learn. As a teacher I must help students realize they can learn what I have to teach them. I have an opportunity to touch many lives while teaching math or chemistry. In motivating my students, I can teach them many life skills guided by state and district-mandated curricula.
Our schools are becoming increasingly diverse with students from a variety of backgrounds. I believe this diversity richly adds to all students’ education. Every student brings something valuable to a classroom. I must learn what each student brings and use it to help all students so we all may gain from the classroom experience.
I began teaching six years ago in a very different environment. As I've moved from school to school and state to state I have seen the impact different environments have upon students, especially with regards to technology.
- I will research and order DSL for my home. I will be comparing different speeds vs. cost for the best deal for my personal use. My major source of information will come from www.dslreports.com
- I will research and decide which PDA would serve me the best, including the differences between brand and operating system (Palm vs. Windows Mobile). I will be doing research online and by visiting retail stores. I plan to buy the PDA toward the end of the semester or beginning of next semester.
- I will design and upload a web page for my students showing current topics and ways of contacting me. I have been informed of space available for me on our district website and want to learn to utilize this space. I will be networking among my peers (other teachers and the IT department) to learn the steps needed to accomplish this.
