Mr. Isaac Pacheco
My personal thoughts on education...
I believe that a good teacher is one who puts the student's interest first who is striving to be a lifelong learner. I constantly work on different teaching strategies and adapt to the students' learning styles in an effort to meet their needs. I desire to teach because I love and have a passion for helping students to become successful to their potential instilling in them the love of learning. I am fully dedicated to my students in helping them to become self-motivated, disciplined, attentive, follow through with objectives, and willing to attempt to exceed academic expectations.
I aim to foster a classroom environment that helps students to develop a love and respect for themselves, others, and education. The environment should be safe, support risk taking, and be non-threatening where the student feels free to express themselves and share ideas. The classroom rules will be firm, fair and consistent including zero tolerance for any type of disrespectful behavior. I aim to include technology which can enrich the learning experience. The classroom is a zone of discovery where the teacher tells the student where to look rather than what to see.
I strive to have my content not just follow local and state curriculum but to peak the students interests and be relevant to the real world. The student will learn interpretation techniques, problem solving skills, and critical thinking through the use of themes, units, projects, hands on learning, collaborative learning, and individual learning.
Every child has the potential to bring something exceptional and extraordinary to the world. I believe that it is in the middle school years that the student is at a formidable state and strive to exercise all my power to make a positive impact in an effort to encourage and ensure the students' success in whatever path that their heart and passions may take them.
