- my students are willing to work hard and do their best to meet their parents', their own, and their teacher's high expectations
- my Masters in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment has really helped me prepare lessons and activities that are interesting and valid for the standards
- my classroom management skills are such that my students develop intrinsic motivation and want to succeed on their own, not just to make me or their parents happy
I was so sad not to have started the school year with everyone. It's almost like I'm not part of the community yet. I love teaching and would love to be preparing my classroom and planning lessons right now...
