Teacher Position At The Isaac Newton Academy

Decent Essays
I am applying for a Maths teacher position at the Isaac Newton Academy because I firmly believe that I have what it takes to make students’ progress in every single lesson.
I have taught in a number of schools, including covering different schools and subjects. This enabled me to work with different people and meet many students. The brief moment that I used to work as a cover teacher helped me to be flexible, committed and experience managing students in different subjects.
I have worked at a boys’ only school (Harris Boys Academy, East Dulwich) for nearly a year, where I met some challenging students, but because all of us worked as a team, the school turned up to be very successful.
In my planning, I always try to make the lessons relevant by linking them to the real life situations and current issues that happen around us, believing that this is the best way to

Some of the students in this cohort had some lifetime medical conditions and the whole class had no access to the curriculum. My role was to plan and teach themed lessons and I enjoyed that challenge and did it whole heartedly. This experience made me be thankful for everything and also develop empathy. I will not hesitate doing a similar role again if asked.
Thankfully, as a person, I was brought up without any trace of luxury, so I value every single resource. I do not appreciate seeing people misuse resources while there are millions of people who need them. With this in mind, I always make sure things are looked after. Sometimes I buy equipment for my classes, this makes me even determined to make sure they are well utilised.
I am a good professional, who like to find solutions to the problems and not to complain. I like what I am doing and because I spend a considerable amount of my time at school, I regard my working place as a very important venue, hence I try to invest in making it an enjoyable place to

    During my senior year, I served as the school’s ASB Speaker. In this position, I communicated directly with my teacher, the school’s administration, and the rest of the ASB team to ensure that the leadership class was doing the best work that it could and that I was doing the best job possible in my position. I also overlooked two individual committees and ensured that the members were working hard and was always there to support or assist them if…

    I realized that I actually have the skills to be leader, just by helping others out. I also realized that I have enough kindness and confidence to show the students with appropriate behavior and manners when in the classroom. To me, the most meaningful experience during my time as an SSL was most likely when a student that I was working with for a couple weeks became a good friend to me and got everything right on a test. It was the his first A so far, so he was very surprised. I felt that taking time and trying to help him review for that test really did the trick for him.…

    I was really worried that I would be put back in regular math, so I took responsibility for myself and got extra help from my teacher and managed to accomplish all A’s on the consecutive tests and end the trimester with almost an A in that class. I’m so thankful that I was taught to be responsible for myself in cheer or else I may not have gotten the same outcome. Out of everything I have been taught these years, the most important skill I picked up from being a Junior Trojan is to never give up. During this season our team did amazing, but there will sporadically be those off days when things don’t always go as intended. On those days, it’s imperative to not give up on yourself and remind everyone that even though it may not have been our best day, it’s important that we remember that we are all talented, and very fortunate to even be where we are.…

    An example of this is the interactive computer based job preparation lessons that I created. The program enabled students to demonstrate competency in accurately completing an employment application, executing a cover and thank you letter, and developing a resume and interview skills that produced results. This program was used across four disciplines, at Venture High School which is the alternative high school for Arlington ISD. Throughout my years of teaching I have been able to take advantage of hundreds of hours of professional development classes and workshops to enhance my strengths and to learn new…

    Kevin was my first student, so to speak. I’ve grown up alongside him, helping him read and write. The time I spent helping my brother made me discover the enjoyment I received from assisting others in their education. Tutoring my peers throughout middle school and high school led me to work as a teacher’s aide in high school and as a volunteer for a third grade teacher now. Although these acts are just the beginning of my teaching career, I strive to be the best teacher I can be.…

    A great educator is more than the context of what they are teaching, he or she is a person of extraordinary character in the classroom and outside. Other traits include creativity, flexibility, dependability, and the ability to problem solve. I think a teacher of exceptional instruction shows leadership and collaboration with other teachers. They work hard to insure academic success through merciless lesson plans and curriculum. Classroom management is crucial in the development of a great teacher because this gives us the ability to stabilize and give structure a healthy environment for students to…

    I dedicate the majority of my time and energy to school work and extracurricular activities- not because I have to, but because I choose to, and it’s easy for me to say, “I love Dolgeville Central School.” Over the past four years, the school became my home and the people here became my family. Teachers change the world one child at a time, and the teachers here at Dolgeville inspired me to become a teacher. After years of working beside and benefiting from the efforts of our school administration, Board of Education, staff, and faculty members, I am determined to become an educator. I will attend St. Lawrence in the fall of 2016, where I will major in Mathematical Economics and Minor in Education. I look forward to becoming a certified mathematics teacher and eventually an…
