Dear Parents,

            My name is Ashley Steinberg and I am in my fourth year at Central Connecticut State University.  Recently, I had the honor of being accepted to the Professional Program in the School of Education and Professional Studies. Since my acceptance, I have begun to take part in many new and exciting opportunities. One of these opportunities includes the experience of fieldwork in the classroom where I look forward to gaining much knowledge.

I have many interests, but what interests me the most is the learning process. I am especially fascinated with the development of each individual child, and the idea that every child learns at their own pace and in their own unique way. I am interested in the theory of multiple intelligences and its implementation in the classroom.

I have always wanted to be an elementary school teacher. I have loved children ever since I can remember and the thought of teaching children excites me. My childhood memories with my brother, my years in babysitting, and my on going experiences in a child care setting have all had an impact on my dreams of becoming a teacher.  Through my personal experiences and classes that I have completed to this point, I have learned that it is important for teachers to have good values, beliefs, and ideas.  A teacher will act as a role model, an evaluator, a communicator, a disciplinarian, and a counselor.  Being a teacher is a very rewarding occupation and I look forward to the day when I have my own classroom but in the mean time, I look forward to working with all of you.

Sincerely,

 Ashley Steinberg
