I'm Patricia, a proud recent graduate of the Bachelor of Education program at Nipissing University, for the Junior and Intermediate grade levels. I am currently taking Special Education Part 1 and will have it completed by August 2010.I am confident my ability to quickly assess a classroom environment and initiate appropriate accommodations and modifications to help all students engage in learning will prove me to be a valuable asset to any school board.
As my resume will demonstrate, my training has been technologically enriched with a focus on teaching to all kinds of learners.I have a strong passion to educate young minds and help them blossom into well-rounded, responsible, and successful individuals.Throughout the course of my training and volunteer work, I have had wonderful opportunities to teach diverse groups of students, including those with learning disabilities, those who performed at grade level, and those who were gifted/exceptional.As a result, I have become proficient at designing creative and stimulating lesson plans, which accommodate multiple intelligences, bring a hands-on approach to learning, and keep students interested and focused.
My greatest strengths include inspiring and motivating students.I actively engage their eager minds by incorporating a multi modal approach to my lesson planning and activities.In addition, through the volunteer work that I have done over the past few years, I have been able to develop and fine-tune many strong qualities that I believe have led me to become an excellent teacher. I am a highly organized, motivated and enthusiastic individual. These qualities, along with my ability to tailor my teaching style to meet the needs of each student, have enabled me to reach people of all ages.
I look forward with great anticipation to discussing with you the many ways in which I can make a significant contribution to your educational program.Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
