Challenging but provides opportunity for personal growth and development as a teacher.
Biology Teacher (Current Employee) – Hillside High Durham, NC – July 7, 2015
I am truly passionate about teaching, and will make it happen wherever I am. My students and I have a good understanding--we talk. They become like family to each other as we learn and grow.
I teach Covey's Seven Habits for character and leadership skills, and have learned to discuss what works for them within our learning environment.
I drill them hard, have high expectations for behavior and respect and do find that if classroom management is not established from the beginning, learning will be hindered.
I work with other teachers and share from my personal experiences over the past 21 years, since many of them are quite younger and inexperienced.
The greatest part of my job is seeing my students grow in character and knowledge--their scores reflect what the district and state desire, but the character growth means so much more to me.
Work day starts early; planning time often consumed by meetings, often called at the last minute.
