My NSTA / Peers / Shajeeah Jan

I am a Junior at Saint Peter's University, aspiring to become a third grade teacher after I graduate in May 2022. I don't want the job just because I love kids but because I also want to make a change in their lives. I hope to be an effective teacher, one who the children will remember in their future lives. Hands-on activities, one on one discussions, group work, etc. are some strategies I definitely have in mind to better educate my future students. I've witnessed that many students don't get that in a classroom; they get left with boring worksheets and take tests that barely teach them anything. A child's classroom should be something they look forward to learning in; a class where they don't have a problem making friends of any color/race/religion/culture/nationality; a class in which they don't struggle to meet a standard, etc.
