Professional Summary
I am a highly skilled, professional and motivated educator. My goal
is to instill the belief in students that they are capable and
intelligent learners. I am a self-starter who brings a lot of passion
and intellect to my role as a teacher. My career goal is to have my
own classroom filled with students that I can nurture and guide to
be the best versions of themselves. I enjoy teaching children of all
ages and abilities and particularly enjoy working with the special
needs students in my classroom. I love watching my students
blossom in front of me, particularly when teaching mathematics.

In my role as a tutor at James An, I have a multi-age prep and year
one class of twelve students followed by a year two class of twelve

Through working as a teacher aide on a casual basis I learnt to


assist special needs students in the classroom. I have learnt how to
think quickly on my feet and adapt to the needs of the teacher and
the students. I became familiar with the curriculum through working
in classrooms of all year levels and learnt how to assist individual
students with any problems that may present themselves.

Being a nanny for the past three years has taught me how to
nurture and care for the children I look after. It has taught me
strategies for dealing with stubborn and unmotivated children. I

consistency. It is these experiences, skills and strategies, as a nanny
that I think will assist me in working with children.
