I have enjoyed an extensive career teaching secondary school students Chemistry, which has allowed me to gain substantial knowledge and expertise in educating young adolescents. Not only am I highly educated in the Sciences, my years of teaching have vastly improved my teaching abilities. I also believe that my friendly personality and calm temperament are very harmonious with the requirements of a good teacher. My communication skills are excellent; as are my interpersonal skills—which are useful during interactions with students, parents and school administrators alike. Given my teaching track-record and my consistently competent performances; I am confident that I would be a valuable asset to any educational institution.
