Yes, I am young, but I do have dreams like everyone else. As a high school student, I am taking a teacher assistant class to pursue my dream. I have always wanted to be a teacher since I was about 4-5 years old. My cousins would come over and we would play school. I was always the teacher.
I am very different from the other kids at my school. I don't know what it is, but something separates us. I think I plan too much and I always have to have a schedule. My thoughts was to become a music teacher. I play keyboard, guitar, trumpet, and learning the drums. But the desire to teach smaller kids and to inspire them to become teachers as well hit me. As you read, I am going to post my ideas about teaching strategies, most of them coming from other teachers, and I would appreciate some other suggestions from the bloggers.
