I believe the fundamental goal of teaching is to open the door, and permit the learning to happen with excitement. A desire to learn, both for the young and old, is a vital pre-condition for finding success with new concepts and skills. One of the best ways to create an atmosphere of excitement is to demonstrate this passion to my students through stories, songs and poetry. I will show and share a passion for learning and an excitement for the unknown. I will spark interest and discussion within the classroom that will promote further learning. My goal is not to be a mere flicker of light within the student's day, but to be a roaring flame for the student to experience wonder and curiosity!
