Little bit about myself and Why do I want to teach?
I am originally from Turkey, but I was born and raised in Russia. After short period of time living in Russia, my family and I were forced to move to the US as a refugees. We moved to the US to get away from discrimination and racism and to work toward better future. My desire to become a teacher began in high school, when I first joined the Future Educators Association. During my high school years, I became involve in FEA and through FEA I attended conferences and workshops where important topics in the field of education were always discussed, I also participated in competition. Through FEA, I have gained confidence and social skills that became so important to me. When I was in my last year of high school, I worked at Goldsmith Elementary School as a teacher’s assistant where I worked with kids from different backgrounds and also who were really below the grade levels. I had a great experience doing these activities and truly experienced what it would be like teaching in the future. By working with kids, I developed a huge passion for teaching and I am now truly determined to become the best teacher I can be.
