A teacher should possess qualities that are high and accounted for in the classroom.  The education and experience that I have has prepared me for the classroom setting in an Elementary school.  I am exciting about teaching and will have a main focus on the students' successes.  I want every student to have my attention, get the help that they need, and feel good about being in my classroom.  The greatest gift that I can give to a student would be that they had a wonderful time learning in my classroom.  I hope that every student will feel that they have learned in a positive environment knowing that all students learn in a variety of ways.  I will work towards my own professional goals as a teacher and reflect on my student's progress.  Involving parents is a key to success for the students, so I will provide ways for parents to stay in communication with the classroom.  There are many aspects of learning and a classroom environment.  I am determined to work hard for my classroom and ensure growth and success of the students.



The objective of this teaching portfolio is to display the credentials that I have obtained through my education program through the University of Phoenix.  Teaching cannot be described in a few words, it is complex, as all students are diverse and the classroom can have a variety of situations and occurrences beyond planning a lesson.  Teachers must be equipped to make quick decisions, adjust to change, handle difficult situations, stay calm and professional at all times, and also make learning fun.  I feel that from my personal experiences, as well as my professional and educational experiences, I have the qualifications to be a highly effective teacher.  I plan to use technology to enhance lessons and learning with a variety of resources.  I also hope to gain the respect of my students in a positive learning environment that is enriched with the love of the classroom.
