Additional Information

I am the oldest of four children, ages being 32, 28, 26, and lastly 23. I was relied on by my younger siblings and looked up to. My later childhood was spent being a babysitter, and then working full time with people from ages 16 to 60. I am able to think fast on my feet, resolve conflict, and I am incredibly passionate about certain things such as children and their well-being. Much like a salesman, I am very intricate and precise with my words and don't usually sugarcoat things. My mother has always told me “you could sell snow to an Eskimo if you had to!” and it was not until later in my life that I understood how important a quality like that can be. Shortly after getting married, I was a full-time nanny for a family of two children, and then for a family of 3 children in Alaska. Coming up with creative ideas to encourage the children's imaginations was my specialty. I am now a mother of three, a six and a half year old son, and almost five year old twins so I am not even sure that I can adequately define the word 'rest'. I have spent this past school year in a Benchmark Pre-K classroom while furthering my education (I will have my associate degree in ECE in late December of 2022) and could not be more grateful. I look forward to going into work and seeing the students of the classroom I was placed in. I know that for me, during those ages, and all through high school, there was always one teacher that made a difference for me, and sometimes that is all a student needs. Just one, one person to stand in their corner, educationally or otherwise, to be a hand to help and guide if need-be. That is why I took that job and decided to re-enroll myself in college and transfer my credits. I want to be the teacher that all of mine were for me, one who supports and encourages without fail.

In working with students, an educator, assistant educator, or classroom aid must be patient, kind, understanding, have an open mind, and be willing to be flexible at the drop of a hat. Children need encouragement when learning to develop their educational skills. Children need to feel comfortable within their classrooms, and around their teachers in order to feel safe and secure. Patience is an absolute must. Not all children are cut from the same cloth, nor do they all learn materials presented to them in the same way. Some may need a little more assistance, or a more hands on experience to completely understand the lessons or activities being taught. Observing children's abilities and strengths will allow teachers to develop techniques to help them in areas that they may struggle with. I believe Rita Pierson said it best when she stated “Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be.”

When it comes to a grouping of children in any age, there are bound to be issues and problems that will arise. Whether it be cutting in line, not sharing materials in the classroom, or saying unkind words to one another. A major point in solving and preventing issues from continuing in a classroom is words. Children need to be taught that they can speak up when they do not like something, or when something bothers them. Children need to be encouraged to use their words in relation to what they are currently feeling and overcome the problem. In a classroom, I would encourage students to be vocal with their peers when problems arise. If a student hurt another's feelings by telling them they cannot play with them, I would encourage him or her to use their words to tell their friend that it is not kind to say things like that about classroom friends and explain how everyone can play together and share materials, activities, and space. Some students have also been known to get too overwhelmed, or just have a bad day. In those cases, during choice time, quiet time, or anything of the like, I would encourage that student to take a moment and draw what they are feeling and encourage them to talk about it so that we can work through it together. There are also times when students feed off of one another, rambunctious matches rambunctious, and talkative matches talkative. In these circumstances, it is important to change the dynamic of small groups and choice time so less interruptions are made throughout the day and the children who tend to be too exuberant can learn and mimic the behaviors that they see from their peers.
