- I feel that my teaching strengths center around building relationships with my students. I’ve worked in a number of difficult positions, both in the educational and mental health field, and feel that having rapport with students is the best way to reach them and guide them in their academics/behaviors.
- I think that I’m an approachable teacher and make myself open to my students.
- I love working with kids and believe that they can sense that.
