After school nanny
Since a young age, I've felt a strong calling to teach. In college, I studied pedagogy and worked in a public school in Chile where I realized that education in Chile doesn't seek to motivate students. However, that is exactly what a good teacher must do.
There is a lot of difference between education in public and private schools. During my internship, in a public poor school in chile I realized that our education is centered in the classroom instead of the teachers. Phrases as "don't waste your time on that child, he is dumb" or " he is just the son of gardener, and he will endup just like his dad" were tipically herd." I believe that if you have a good leader, who has the tools to motivate teachers and encourage them to feel sustancial on the posiibility for this kids to change, to move.... If they believe in themselves they can change their reality.
In chile our education is a cycle, poor people, have defficient education, weak scores for the universities test, so hardly ever they enter to a university and they end up doing the same as their parents.
After obtaining my BA in elementary school teaching, I went to Australia and participated in a TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages) program. It opened my eyes to a different, more motivation-based teaching methodology.
When I returned to Chile, I obtained a job at a private elementary school as a kindergarten teacher. I have been teaching there for the past six years and have used different media to spark students' interests and motivate them. I have learned about planning, teaching methodologies, and how to promote virtues
My experience as a a teacher (6 years) has been demanding in adapting to different levels and ages, from eight grade to kindergarten. My creativity has been my tool to do new things, to face the challenge that demands of each level.
