Essay Want to Be Teacher

By rtakenaka Jan 10, 2011 488 Words
I am interested in working with Special Education Autism or development delay child as Teacher Assistant. I am very well qualified and would be an asset to the school because of my experience working as a teaching assistant for Autism child for 2 years with home based program. I am familiar with Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). I would like to continue to develop my teaching skills while creating a challenging and fun learning environment for students. I have a New York Sate Teaching Assistant Certification Level 1. Currently my certification is on the process therefore I cannot give my license number. For your review, I have attached my Assessment of Teaching Assistant Skills Test (ATAS) passing result. Since I graduated as Office Technology major from Baruch college, I was working as a PC instructor. Everyone has progressed to where they are in life because they had a teacher. A teacher is defined as someone who gives instruction and communicates skills. Our children are our future, and they need to be prepared for the future or they will not be successful in the working world.

in to my adult life I have had other important teachers who inspire me to accomplish my dreams. These wonderful inspiring people in my life have helped me in my decision to become a teacher.       The job of a teacher means different things to different people. For some, a teacher is simply a person who informs students about "necessary information" like math formulas, historical facts, or literary works. Yet for others, and for me, teachers are much more. They give their students not only their knowledge, but also their passion. They get involved in the lives of their students. They make their students feel good about themselves and they help the youth realize and fulfill their dreams.       Being a special education teacher will have so many joys and challenges.
