My Passion for Teaching

My goal is to inspire. My love is to teach. My dream is to help children see that they are special, talented, meaningful, beautiful, loved. While teaching is my profession, I take it seriously. Each child that walks in my room is someone's baby, and for that reason I must do all I can to help him.

Teaching was not always my dream, but I have found a deep passion for it that helps fuel my instruction every day. This will be my second year of teaching, can I can't wait to begin!
This life we are given is brief. God has blessed me with purpose, with ambition, and with a love for the pursuit of knowledge. My hope is that I transfer the love of the Lord to these little ones and instill in them a love for learning that lasts a lifetime.

  2. Miss A, love your post. I am an instructional coach and I have come to realize that I can teach any teacher how to be more organized, how to improve instruction, become familiar with the curriculum and implement a new program but one thing I can't do is teach someone how to love kids and be passionate about their job. I always say, "A teacher without passion, is like a body without a soul".

    1. Amen, Nancy.
      I too was a coach and could teach all of the technical "stuff" but not the passion.
      I look forward to learning alongside both you and Miss A.

  4. Have you read this book? Teach Like a PIRATE: Increase Student Engagement, Boost Your Creativity, and Transform Your Life as an Educator
    This is a great read and there is an online book study going on about it as well.:)

    1. I haven't read it yet. I've heard of it, though! Sounds like an interesting book. Do you have the link to the book study?

  5. I don't remember dreaming of being a teacher and at one point thought that Public Relations would be the field of choice for me. Certainly teaching has an element of that with the ongoing relationships that you need to maintain as a teacher with students, parents, colleagues, support staff and administration. It's funny how our path finds us no matter which way we go. It has been a very meaningful road for me and I have grown in my understanding of teaching, learning and early childhood practices. I look forward to reading your posts this summer...and beyond!!!
