My number one goal is to teach to each and every student by giving each of them a chance to succeed no matter what their abilities and learning needs/ wants are.
I also want to make a positive change in teenagers health and to encourage students to strive for a healthy lifestyle, but to also challenge the mainstream idea of what health is and to encourage students to critically think about what makes a healthy community and individual. (I realize this may be a bit difficult since I am only at the school for 3 weeks, but I still want to aim for this)
My next goal is to make sure I teach for social justice. I want to focus on inclusion and anti-oppressive education and I also want to get students thinking about and questioning oppression and what that means to them.
