If I could be a teacher I would help students be successful in what others said they couldn’t be. In order for me to be successful at my dream and turn it into a reality I would interact with my students, be patient and keep them motivated. I think it is important to have a relationship with the students’ parents and have them involved in their child’s life. That way the student has support at school and home and both parties can help in areas that need to be improved in. Also, I would have mini groups to interact with one another to build their social skills and help them think critically by challenging their fellow classmates. By working with students one on one id hope to make change by students having a voice their opinions, and solving their own problems. In conclusion, there are not many teachers who have patience and the care to just listen; listening could change one small mind to changing a big mistake for the rest of their life.
