A greeting to my future students

Hello students!! I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with you this summer. I know that I will learn just as much from you, as you will from me. We have a fun and educational summer ahead of us. I cannot wait for it to begin!

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

As a teacher, I will be able to have a positive impact on my students' lives. There are many children that come from stressful homes, and I would love to give them a happy and structured place to be for 8 hours a day.

I think that establishing a positive classroom environment and building relationships with the students promotes great learning. It can help the children feel safe to try new things and express their ideas.

Why I am interested in teaching in Taiwan

Teaching in Taiwan is an amazing opportunity. I will have the opportunity to see a different part of the world and be immersed in their culture. I am also looking forward to gaining the experience of teaching students whose first language is not English.

My desired superpower and why

If I could have any superpower, it would be teleportation. If I could teleport, I would go to a different place every day. On freezing days in Illinois, I could go to a tropical Island just for the day!
