Write an essay where you tell us about the moment you realized you wanted to become a teacher.
I’m currently a first-year student at Keene State College where I double major in Elementary Education and sociology and minor in psychology. Currently, my focus is on teaching second or third grade. Certainly my goals are specific, however, there is no limit to my determination and passion for teaching. One of my strengths is that I care for children immensely. My caring character may also be noticed and a weakness because I let that overpower many things. When a situation would happen with one of my students at work, I would constantly worry and check in with them. When my kids would get off the bus at the daycare each day I would say, “Hey guys! Love you!” I want my children to know each and everyday that someone care about them. I can’t control what goes on at home, but I can control what happens inside of my classroom; each child knows they are loved.
