In approximately 2 pages, answer the following questions: Think of the best teacher you have ever had – What in particular about the teacher did you find compelling, engaging, or useful? Were there certain personality characteristics, skills or teaching methods that made him or her such an excellent educator? Thinking about how we learn best through observation and modeling, what can you take and emulate or infuse into your own future career? If unsure about your future as a health educator, think of other contexts in which you may be teaching people, and how you can apply what you observed in that context. Are there certain aspects of this individual’s teaching that you feel you would not be able to replicate? If so, how come? Are there other teaching strengths that you might bring to the table, that he or she did not have? What do you feel you would need to do to become a confident, effective educator?
