I have the best job ever! At times I feel so lucky to have chosen this career! I’ve always had a passion for working with children, dating back to my first babysitting job at the age of 12. When I taught elementary school in Philadelphia, I loved being in the classroom. The excitement of starting a new school year with a new class of kids every September was intoxicating. And I adored watching the growth of each and every one of my students.
Now I get the pleasure of working with students in small group settings and individualized sessions. I not only get a chance to understand a child’s academic strengths and weaknesses, but I also get a true feel for his or her learning style. You see, all aspects of a child’s personality really shine through when you work together in such an individualized manner.
Just recently, a student I’ve been working with had one of those “light bulb” moments. It was the highlight of my day! I feel such great satisfaction in knowing that his hard work, determination and persistence is parlaying into such great progress.
As I work to inspire him to be a strong and successful reader, he inspires me to be a great educator! From a professional standpoint, what more could I ask for?
