As a teacher, it is my job to make sure the student gains the knowledge required to be successful in their education, writing and communication efforts. Along, with this challenge comes the responsibility to teach ethical behavior and respect for each other in (discussions) this virtual team environment. I embrace learning as a life time project that will enhance students view of the world in a more multicultural dimension. I have always enjoyed giving away from myself to help others, because that gift was given to me. I give my time away from my-self by doing lots of volunteer work because I enjoy helping others. This trait (giving away from my-self) is also what encourages me to share with student's things that I have learned that have molded me into a caring, all things are possible, person. I am a motivator who encourages the students not to give up when things seem impossible not to give up their studies due to family, personal, or other events that life will throw at them. I want the students to know that their sacrifices made to stay in school today will pay off later down the road for them and their families. I want to also share my excitement with them as I teach them about the different methodologies and concepts about the subject they are enrolled in. This excitement in learning will allow them to think outside the box and also encourage them to keep and open mind and grow.
