Summary

My love for kids and edification drew me to the department of English language and Literature where I learnt how to become an efficient teacher who inspires and educates her students. I became fascinated with the the variety of alternative educational methods and teaching techniques that this university taught me and I can’t wait to actualize my knowledge in my own classroom.

I am always striving to bring 100% to the work that I do and my goal is to build strong, educated and driven students. I like getting people excited about the things I’m excited about and right now, that’s teaching.

Currently, I’m swimming coach. I educate children on a different domain. I’m familiarized with children and class management. I love working with kids, I’m patient and ready to communicate my knowledge, using alternative, effective and entertaining teaching methods.
