I am a NURTURER
MY EDUCATOR PROFILE
My motto: “How can I help?”
Favorite food: Comfort foods
“You enjoy helping others, and nothing makes you happier than seeing your students reach their potential and learn about their world. You sometimes have a hard time saying “no” and have been known to overcommit yourself to various committees and activities.
You’ve usually got a good handle on the climate in your school or classroom, and you dislike conflict—if they’re not happy, you’re not happy. Others confide in you and seek your advice, and students you taught several years ago sometimes stop by your classroom (or stop you in the grocery store) for big hugs.
At home you’re usually hosting family and friends on a regular basis or organizing neighborhood or team events. Just remember to take care of yourself, too!”
