I envision learning effective teaching skills through SPU’s ARC program, and utilizing them in practice through my internship when applicable. I will do this by putting forth my best effort academically to take full advantage of the learning opportunities presented. I will use the HOPE principles for my goals in working towards competency. During my internship, I will seek out opportunities to incorporate the skills I am learning in the classroom, to be of better service to my students.
My work ethic, dedication, compassion, and strong desire to see students learn will enable me to be a successful teacher. I will strive to create a classroom that is inclusive, supportive, and embraces the learning potential of every student. In doing so, I will create a community of learners in which we will all be able to reach our full potential.
