I really like the writing part, the students in my class have an opportunity to write an essay every week on a different subject. I enjoy being able to help the kids learn about writing and to read what they’ve written.
When I first became a teacher, only 9 years ago, I thought I could positively influence every student and I think at the end of every year I realize if I can just impact in a positive way one or two I feel like I’ve reached and accomplished what I wanted to.
We have a motto in our classroom, if you can’t do extraordinary things ordinarily well, then do ordinary things, extraordinarily well. In other words just do your best.”
