NYS Certified Mathematics Teache
For the past year I have been teaching fifth graders at Hamza Academy. I have been teaching all core subjects including but not limited to math, language arts, and social studies. However, my heart and interests still lie in teaching mathematics. Throughout the four years of my college experience I have been a member of TIME 2000, a mathematics teaching program. It is due to this program that I have attained a lot of experience in the field. Having attained several experiences in teaching, I have developed a strong belief about teaching mathematics. I believe that teaching mathematics is a challenge, but a challenge for which I am ready. So many people have grown up with the notion of hating mathematics, and I believe the way they were taught is directly related to that hatred. If material is differentiated and applied to real life, I believe it maximizes the students’ interest and ability to retain the information. Through my experiences in my field work and my opportunity to intern with the mathematics show Cyberchase, I have learned innovative ways to keep students interested and motivated. I also believe being a teacher goes beyond affecting the lives of students within the four walls of a classroom. The person I am today and the decisions I have made were strongly influenced by my secondary teachers. I want to be able to have a positive influence on the lives of my students and guide them to a successful future.
