My goal in teaching is to provide students with enough feedback and opportunities to give them confidence in their own writing skill. Writing is about putting yourself on paper and allowing readers to see a piece of you in your work. Many students come into college unsure of who they are as writers, and I use my classroom as a way to improve how they feel about the writing process, as well as their final products. An emphasis on revision is placed within my class, prompting students to look at what they have written and reflect back on the strengths and weaknesses of the product. Through this, students learn more about themselves and what works for them. I believe this to be an important aspect for students to gain confidence in submitting a final piece of work and provides skills that can be used outside of the classroom.
