Embracing Diversity in the Classroom

… by Jennamarie Moody

When I cđại bại my eyes, I picture myself in a school located in an urban setting, teaching a classroom of diverse yet alike students. These students are in the second grade, meaning that they are impressionable yet vulnerable to their environment whether this means at home, at school, or in their greater community.

Some of these students don’t speak English as their first language, and some come from low-income households that can limit their educational experiences outside of the classroom. And yet, no matter what differences these students bring to lớn the table, their uniqueness flows throughout the classroom in such a positive sầu energy that embraces, respects, & promotes learning. This is the goal I am working towards; the goal of inspiring our youth lớn become self-advocates for their learning.

Opportunities for equal educational experiences may not exist, however the beauty lies in the growth of love young students can develop as they are challenged in the classroom to lớn question their surroundings. I plan to make a difference in the lives of the children I meet along the way, & to create a safe learning environment.

Although the tests for certification và studies can be difficult, my passion for education và dedication to lớn shaping the lives of my students is what keeps me going. The over goal is khổng lồ nurture the development of my students khổng lồ become active & engaged participants in society, & that is what I intend to vì chưng completely.

The Future of Children’s Education

… by Lesley Martinez-Silva

I aspire to lớn make a difference in others’ lives through education. I’m studying khổng lồ be an elementary school teacher because I believe that children can achieve sầu so much more if they learn early of their potential.

Education has always been my priority. My parents always stressed the importance of obtaining an education, having missed that opportunity themselves. My parents taught me as a child that schooling was vital lớn success in life. Truly, that lesson has been the most important in my path lớn college. I don’t think I would’ve sầu made it this far had I not taken my education seriously.

I want khổng lồ teach others about the importance of education so they too can prosper. Everything I’m learning at university is important for my future career &, if I don’t study it, I’m failing my future students. Every child deserves the best education available and I should strive khổng lồ be the best educator possible to lớn provide that for them. When balancing academics, work, và my social life, it can get challenging to keep going. But, with the future of children’s education in my hands, I always get baông chồng on track.

I Dream for My Students

… by Nicole Gongora

The dream of success motivates me to lớn study. Not my success, my future students’ success. I push myself through the rough spots for them.

I was a lost child in high school; I didn’t know how to lớn apply khổng lồ college, let alone afford it. No child should have to lớn experience that. As a future educator, I am committed to helping my students succeed, achieve more, and continue onkhổng lồ higher education. Every child should be given the opportunity to showcase their strengths & follow their dreams.

College was never a dream for me; it was a far off, unattainable fantasy. I met some inspiring teachers in high school who encouraged me to change my life & who helped me lớn thrive sầu. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

I plan lớn work at a low-income school similar lớn the one I attended. These types of schools are the ones who lachồng resources. I will serve as a resource khổng lồ my students and I hope lớn be an inspiration to them. In turn, I hope they become kind, respectful adults. I want them khổng lồ see the virtue in helping others và I hope they will serve sầu others in their future careers. I want to be the teacher they remember. I want to lớn be the teacher that helped them succeed.

I’ll feel successful as a teacher if my students are successful in attaining their goals. If one student decides to achieve sầu more then I will have sầu lived out my dream.


… by Mo Cabiles

The world we live sầu in is hard, unsteady và ruthless. We see this everyday in the harshness of homelessness, lớn social truyền thông screaming for justice. What motivates me to lớn continue on is that I have sầu felt the bitter cold bite of homelessness. I know what it’s like khổng lồ not have enough lớn eat và khổng lồ be scared of what will happen next.

I am fortunate khổng lồ no longer be in those situations but that, by no means, is an indicator that it will all now come easy. As an adult learner and your “non-traditional” student, there are other obstacles I must overcome. From transportation to childcare or education application mastery to lớn APA formatting, the many roadblocks I tackle both large và small are what I consider lớn be my victories.

I’ve seen what having a higher education can bởi for someone và I want that for myself and that of my daughters. I strive to lớn be a good example for them, to lớn show them that, regardless of social standing and unforeseeable circumstances, if they work hard và put their best effort forward, they can achieve sầu their dreams.

My dream is khổng lồ obtain my Masters in Education with an emphasis in counseling, I want to lớn be an academic advisor or guidance counselor. I’ve seen so many youths attempt community college and fail because they fell through the cracks. These students need to realize their potential & I want lớn help them achieve that & lớn be their cheerleader.

A goal I have in my life is to be an elementary teacher, also known as an early childhood teacher in nước Australia. As a teacher, I can share the knowledge I’ve sầu gained to lớn leave sầu behind a better future for our world. Last year, I had the opportunity to work alongside a previous elementary teacher & mentor of mine. I’d visit her classroom daily, and taught lessons alongside her or independently. Uniquely, they were the opening act in my high school’s original winter play. They read firsth& from our scripts & learned what happens behind the scenes.

One Person

… by Megan Burns

My ultimate goal is to change the lives of people. Studying khổng lồ be a teacher is hard. All of the classes that are required, all of the practicums, & all of the time spent just khổng lồ become a teacher is stressful, but the thought of being able to lớn help just one person changes everything.

It takes one person to lớn be a light in someone’s life. It take one person khổng lồ be a helping hvà. It takes one person khổng lồ change an unmotivated, broken life, và make it br& new. Teachers are those people. We motivate students khổng lồ vị their best, we guide students lớn success when no one else will, và we are always available to listen. One teacher can change the lives of thousands of students. That is my motivation.

I know that after college, I will be a teacher, a guider, a counselor, và a frikết thúc lớn so many students. No matter how many bad days I have or how many times I want to lớn quit, I just think of what is to lớn come in the future. I can be that change this world needs, even if its in a small high school classroom. It just takes one person.

The Road Not Taken

… by Jenyfer Pegg

My entire life has been filled with discouragement. I grew up in a household where I was constantly told “No”. I was told my ideas were stupid & would not work. In my junior year of high school, my teachers và counselors started talking about college and sending in applications to lớn different places. At that point, I knew I was not going. I came from a poor family và I knew we could never have money for something like college.

But I went on college visits, I listened to people speak about their college, & I was set. I had a lot of things pushing me, except the one thing I really wanted, my family. No one in my family has gone to lớn college, & when I told my mother, she was shocked. She told me she just wanted me out of the house.

When I came lớn school, I realized I wanted lớn teach high school. I want to lớn make an actual difference in someone else’s life. My family has taken the same road for years, và I’m not going down that road. I won’t live sầu paykiểm tra to paycheck like my mom, I will be a person that others will look up khổng lồ.

I’m going to bởi something worthwhile, and I will work harder than anyone else if it gets me there. I’ve seen what my life will be like without school và motivation và there is absolutely no way I’m going down that road. I’ve sầu got bigger plans.

The Refugee Students

… by Robbie Watson

My road lớn graduate school has been a long one. I studied religion & culture in undergrad, interested in the material, yet not sure how I would apply it later. Yet I found places, got involved in community và international development, engaged with different cultures, và now feel I use my degree every day.

For over two years I worked alongside Congolese refugees in Rwandomain authority, developing educational opportunities for youths who could not finish secondary school in the underfunded camps. It is these refugees, young & old, the students, the teachers, their passion và vision for a better future that has driven me lớn seek out more education for myself. I rethành viên how they would pay from their families’ meager funds lớn attend classes led by volunteer teachers. When finances were against them, or time, or family obligations, or the dire depression of the camp life itself, or even government officials were against them, still those students attended, still those teachers taught.

It is their example of perseverance towards a goal against all odds that inspires me now. I think of them often, think of the friends they were, are still. And I think of how that passion is in me now, lớn better underst& education so that I might better educate, và thus equip such downtrodden communities lớn work for transformation themselves. I work not only for myself, and am motivated by the potential in those students và educators, which is also in me, và in others like them.

Educational Success

… by Ian T Thomason

While attending the University of Minnesota-Mankalớn, I have aspirations of becoming a Special Education Teacher. Becoming a Special Education Teacher and helping students who have sầu a need for extra help and students who are having troubles with everyday life are things that I dream of doing. I was in their shoes once & know how difficult it is to lớn giảm giá with everyday life & how nice it was have sầu a teacher to lớn talk khổng lồ.

Becoming a Special Education Teacher is my ultimate goal and, when difficult times arise, I have lớn remind myself of the children out there who have it potentially worse than I. When I remember this, I also think baông xã khổng lồ all of the support that I had from my parents, family members, & teachers. I also know that there are lots of children who don’t have this type of tư vấn &, if I can be there for them, that would make my career choice all the more worth it.

My Special Education degree is something more than just a degree for me. It is a degree that allows me khổng lồ help children improve their education. I realize that children are our future và that their minds are terrible things to waste. So, instead of wasting their minds, why not put our best foot forward to educate them? My dream is lớn help kids realize their full potential, promote education và a brighter future for every child.

Morning Message

… by Savannah Stamates

I lay awake at night và practice my first morning message lớn my first round of students whom I will not meet for more than a year.

I wonder if I will have hungry children, happy children, or broken children. I wonder if I will be good enough or strong enough to reach those most in need. I wonder if my students will trust me enough lớn tell me that they are hungry, happy, or scared.

I worry that I will not be strong enough lớn mô tả their burden or provide a place for peace & learning. I worry that I will misread their actions or their words or miss them reaching out.

So I study, even when I am tired from working two jobs or siông xã of not being where I want to be. When my time comes lớn walk into lớn that classroom, my worries and doubts will be silenced by the knowledge I have mastered và the dream I have sầu finally achieved.
