A greeting to my future students

Hello students! I am looking forward to meeting you all. In this experience I hope that you guys are able to learn from me, just as I hope to learn from you.

Why I want to be a teacher and what I believe promotes great learning

My desire to be a teacher comes from my constant exposure to children. I've always wanted to be able to inspire others and I find that I am best at inspiring children. I want a career where I can help students grow into well-mannered, kind, and caring people. A positive attitude and, a supportive classroom community promote great learning.

Why I am interested in teaching in China

I am interested in teaching in China because this experience will be beneficial in expanding my knowledge culturally. I feel that I will be able to see the world and my students through new eyes after teaching in another country. Being able to learn from my peers will help me develop new strategies to incorporate into my classes back home. This will be a learning experience for both my students and myself.

What theme I will use to teach English, and why I chose that theme

The theme that I will be using is fairy tales. This theme was chosen because fairy tales are easy for young children to grasp, and they are a lot of fun. There are several fairy tales that are known worldwide and those are the one's that I would like to incorporate in the lessons. Fairy tales often have a lesson being taught and often times those lessons are very meaningful. Therefore, fairy tales will make learning English fun, and will allow students to draw from prior knowledge on the fairy tales in their culture.
