College Her teaching certification is in Elementary Education and Elementary English A beginning educator she teaches third graders at Seele Elementary School Greatest pleasure in teaching I get great pleasure from seeing my students grow and Philosophy of education I see students as bundles of potential Each one has individual needs strengths and goals and deserves to have them addressed I get excited watching a child learn and grow Each one has the potential for greatness My job as a teacher is to help every student reach his or her full potential I need to give my students the tools to grow and achieve their goals Children need to be taught basic skills but they must also be treated as wonderful human beings who are creative and talented Their selfesteem must be nurtured Their minds must be challenged They must feel safe secure and proud of their learning The joy of working with children and watching them burst into bloom gives me great personal satisfaction I get a thrill every time I see a childs face light up with pride because they have learned something Nothing could be more Cynthia Leslie earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Option II Reading from the University of North Texas A new teacher she has a class of first graders at Lone Star Primary School Greatest pleasure in teaching I think that my greatest pleasure in teaching will come from the relationships that will grow between me and my students and from seeing the happy faces of children who are motivated to Philosophy of education I believe that by encouraging motivating and supporting them all children can learn I feel that a teachers role should be one of a facilitator not a dictator By providing an environment where the students feel secure at being risktakers and feel good about helping each other they will feel positive about learning The New Braunfels HeraldZesting provides an Education page to local public school districts New
