““I was inspired to go into education by one of my high school teachers who motivated me. I hadn’t been working hard and it was difficult for me to get inspired. I had a grade ten physics teacher who called me out on the effort I was putting forth and really followed up on everything I was doing. He gave me praise when I needed it and really opened me up to the world of education. He allowed me to see what a teacher can do and inspired me to go into the field myself.
I went to University to study elementary education and I plan (hopefully soon) to apply for my Masters in specialized education. I’m currently working at Hebrew Academy in differentiated learning, where we have a different education plan for each of our students. We get to know them, and the best way they learn, to try and educate them accordingly. It’s an amazing new challenge every day, and I love it!””
