University,I have worked forseven years as a fourthgrade general studies teacher ata public school
ABC Elementary School in Anytown Idaho.
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in the third grade.As a student I was struggling struggled to
understand multiplication; I remember feeling frustrated, helpless, and sad. My teacherrecognized my
problem and spent months tutoring me in the subject every day after school. It took a lot of time and a
great dealof patienceon behalfof myteacher herpart, butone dayeverything we hadbeen working
on clicked it all “clicked”, and suddenly I suddenly understood how to multiply what I was doing. The joy
and pride I felt was unmatched by any other moment in my preceding 9 nine years.
I learned much more than multiplication during our study sessions. My teacher taught me to believe in
success.Last yearIwasselected fromapoolof thirtyteachersas theschools"Most-Liked Teacher,"
