Master of Arts in Teaching
- My ability to build appropriate relationships with my students is my biggest strength. I have worked in situations where students have had severe disabilities, building trust and a good rapport is necessary in creating a safe educational environment.
- I believe in being consistent in everything I do. I do not make statements/promises I do not intend to fulfill.
- I care about my students’ success and will push them to meet their potential.
