I feel teaching should be interesting and relevant to students. I want my students to be excited about learning and to have a wonderful future as a result. If the student doesn’t learn then I am the one who has failed.
I have a master’s in special education and a major in elementary education. I chose special education because my little brother had special needs and I wanted to learn how to reach students who had more intense needs.
I have taught all grades and all subjects. I have learned to teach each student individually and break down each lesson so it can be easily learned.
I have created and run a high school newsletter which the students enjoyed. The students would volunteer to write a story, poem, etc and I would print them out. Some students loved seeing their work in print and would save each newsletter to show at home.
