I also taught online to students with live white board instruction on weekends or some weekdays that are arranged with students.I taught ESL,English Lit.,AutoCad online. From ages 5 to adult. Right now I'm working on my own website called "TeachUs" and learning videos cartoons on Youtube that are in process, that will take my past experiences and teach content that serves, students, teachers and administrators globally. Student development is important part of education and I am continuously learning, monitoring and providing students with a good education for all students, before or after school assistance if they require the extras help or support. I believe student engagement is effective teaching: Students who are engaged in their work are energized by four goals—success, curiosity, originality, and satisfying relationships. My challenge is to transcend these very real difficulties and provide a practical model for understanding what our students want and need. Our classrooms today are rethinking motivation. Engagement is first to help me discover what I'm already doing right and then to encourage the cultivation of everyday classroom conditions that foster student motivation and success.Keeping every student engaged in the curriculum is the primary challenge for me. If my students are doing what they should be doing, then I do not have any management problems. Using student-centered curriculum, students can have fun, understand the purpose of what they are learning, and discover their world.
Every student is unique, not one size fits all.
My mission is that I believe that each student has the ability to succeed as long as they are given encouragement, the opportunity and the proper resources. My goals for each student is personal at its best when it comes to safe, caring environment in which free to express their opinions and mature into responsible adults in society. Being a educator, its a blessing to assist a student into their journey and provide them with guidance along the way. https://twitter.com/funeverydayread
