What is the best part of teaching? What is the most difficult part of teaching?

The best part of teaching is the look on students’ faces when they understand what you are teaching.

The most difficult part is making sure that every student’s individualized needs are met.

Describe a successful teaching strategy that you use in the classroom. How does this impact your students’ achievement?

I found that my students love small group activities where they are able to talk to others. I have leveraged this time to check for students’ understanding which in turn allows me to better craft my lessons to suit their needs.

What 3 words would you use to describe the experience of participating in Teaching Excellence?

Informative, Helpful, Impactful

When you are not working on closing the achievement gap, what do you enjoy doing?

I love hanging out with my friends and trying new restaurants.

If you could create a t-shirt with a slogan that represents your philosophy of education, what would it say and why?

Plan well… then plan for when the plan fails. 🙂
