Prior to getting my teaching certificate, I did a whole series of long-term substitute assignments that ranged from two weeks to three months. During those assignments, I was in charge of making all the lesson plans so I learned to rely on myself when it came to making up cool lesson plans.
I love to differentiate- not just for the benefit of the students, but so that my job isn't boring or routinely. I strive on building a class bsed on interpersonal relationships where the students feel comfortable being who they are and expressing their thoughts freely.
