A typical day involves research, pre-planning, collaborating, data review, creation of data focused lessons, lesson delivery, interactions with parents, students, office/district personnel, along with management, schedules, meetings, incorporating classroom and time management. I have learned how to work in a time frame/time line, collaborate more with various stakeholders, analyze data, incorporate engaging technology, build teams, train/mentor, present and facilitate information in front of various sized audiences.
These skills, as well as others, have helped me work with colleagues in many different settings, beneficial to all involved. The most difficult portion of the job is working with uncooperative parents, colleagues, and management. Despite this, I thoroughly enjoy working with people, being creative, in order to achieve set common goals. I will continue to use my skill-sets to make a difference and to impact lives of many I have the pleasure of meeting or working with, because at the end of the day there is still a goal which needs to be reached or attained.
Working with colleagues to achieve goals
Short or no breaks, constant misdirection
