Having achieved my undergraduate degree from King’s, completing my after-degree in education at King’s is the perfect fit. I hope to walk out of King’s ready to take on the task of guiding elementary students to be the best human they can be, beyond just giving them classroom knowledge, because that’s really what you learn in education at King’s.
I have been so blessed by this program. It’s not only teaching me to be the best teacher I can be, but also to be the best person for myself and for the ones that will one day call me “Ms. Dublois”. One of the best parts of the program is the “teacher toolbox” that you walk out with. It’s a box full of knowledge, hands-on art projects, resources and lifelong teacher friends ready to support, exchange ideas and work together as you start your own classrooms.
My biggest takeaway thus far is to choose life and to love often. This may be in regards to practical life things like making lesson plans, classroom management or helping students succeed but the right choice will always be the one that puts love first. I hope to take this into my first practicum placement, and one day into my own classroom.
