This is the time of the year where many students start to feel their motivation dwindle, and their exhaustion levels rise. Some may even feel a lack of creativity or inspiration.
LLOD’s mission resonates with me, “We develop leaders and scholars with deep knowledge of learning and change so we can transform their worlds.” As I was drawn more deeply into community engagement, I saw the possibility it held to “transform” and improve our world. Our program is exciting because the knowledge can be applied across many disciplines and fields. It is transferable and makes it exciting to teach students from varied backgrounds.
I see great value for individuals achieving personal, meaningful achievement. In my opinion, reflection starts here in creating lifelong learners because individuals learn to seek out broader perspectives. As a facilitator for this discovery to occur, I take my role seriously in creating learning environments to make this happen.
Additionally, I use various teaching modes to allow my students opportunities to experience a variety of different teaching methods and to determine how they learn best. Furthermore, as a teacher and professional, I am able to continually develop my expertise to provide the best instruction to my students.
