I am a Middle School teach in Los Angeles Unified School District. I work with students in high need areas where they deal with many issues outside of school that understandably cause a major distraction. Learning is definitely lower on their list than simply surviving the day and getting something to eat. These kids inspire me to do my best because they definitely deserve it.
I try to make my classroom a community and I feel that it is my responsibility to prepare enough so that my students are captivated by my lessons so that there is little need for "classroom management".
BA and teaching credential from California State Dominguez Hills
I am also a very creative/overly organized person. I try to incorporate both of these aspects of my personality into my classroom.
