A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge, and wisdom in the pupils.  ~Terri Guillemets

Hello, my name is Kristin Ink and I would like to welcome you to my electronic portfolio. It has always been a dream of mine to become a lifelong educator.  I have a passion for teaching children and am excited for the opportunity to nurture and shape the lives and minds of young people.  Currently, I am completing a Master of Science in Childhood Education at Ithaca College.  I look forward to graduating in June 2010 and beginning a fulfilling career in education.  The Ithaca College Masters program is a rigorous thirteen month program that is based on eight Standards for Effective Teaching.  I invite you to browse through my portfolio to see how I have become proficient in these eight standards during the past year.  Thank you for exploring my portfolio!
