What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me
Teaching is more than a job. It's a responsibility—one of the greatest responsibilities I have. It is a job that has a goal to ignite passion and discovery in every student. I would love to lay bare the mysteries of the chemistry world around us. To ensure that knowledge is not lost or forgotten but is instead passed on to create innovators and creators.
A Teachable Moment
Every day in the classroom provides endless teachable moments. That teachable moment happen for me when I was in junior high. My sixth grade math teacher, knew that English was my second language and word problems did not come easy for me. She did not give up on me. She taught me how to break the problem to help me comprehend the overall problem. She taught me not to give up and to not be afraid to ask for help. I hope I not only pass that on to my students but help them find their teachable moments.
