Hello! I’m Laura and I am a first year Middle Years Education student at the University of Regina. I am from a farm near Gull Lake, Saskatchewan which is where I went to school my whole life. I enjoy playing sports, helping out on my farm, and watching Netflix. I have always wanted to be a teacher and have 10 teachers in my family so I guess you could say that rubbed off on me!
When I have completed my post secondary educational experience I hope to be able to educate my students in the best way possible. I believe in order to best educate my students there should be equality, mutual respect, and joy in a classroom. The education classes I have taken and will take in the years to come will provide me with the knowledge and experience I need to do be able to create a classroom that values all of these things!
A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning.
When my students and I discover uncharted territory to explore, when the pathway out of a thicket opens up before us, when our experience is illumined by the lightning-life of the mind—then teaching is the finest work I know.
Teach the children so it will not be necessary to teach the adults.
- I believe everyone deserves an education
- I believe a teacher is always learning
- I believe that every student is unique
- I believe that a teacher should put a piece of themselves into their lessons
- I believe a teacher teaches their students more than just subjects
- I believe that students should feel safe when they come to school
- I believe that teachers learn from their students
It is extremely important to me that all my students feel included and welcome. I will do whatever I can to make this a reality. I want to be able to embrace children’s differences rather than shame them. I want to be able to open my mind and learn from my students and fellow teachers. I also want to be able to put myself into my teaching and really create my own teaching style, one that works best for me and my students.
