Welcome to my Education Portfolio!
My name is Autumn Reichard and I am a senior English/Language Arts Elementary/Middle Level Education major, pursing a minor in Human Services at Elizabethtown College. While studying to become a teacher, I am also a part of Elizabethtown’s Community Orchestra and Dance Teams. I have a passion for creativity, writing, and inspiring others to express themselves, which are all things that I wish to bring into the classroom.
I truly believe that the students are the heart of every classroom. Each one has a diverse background and different experiences that they bring with them, and therefore bring unique sets of strengths and weaknesses into the classroom. I craft my lessons to create meaningful educational experiences for all students, as well as challenge my students in order for them to reach their utmost potential. I have first-hand experience in both elementary and middle school level classrooms, and have come accustom to accommodating a wide range of learners.
In my portfolio, I have accumulated some highlights of my teaching experience. I hope this portfolio can give you insight on who I am as a teacher, as well as a person.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my portfolio!
"The test of a good teacher is not how many questions he can ask his pupils that they will answer readily, but how many questions he inspires them to ask him which he finds it hard to answer."
