In most classrooms I have taught in, there are many ways I have addressed the wide range of skills and abilities of my students, thus tailoring my teaching styles to the current group of children I am teaching. I enjoy using media and technology, as well as hands-on manipulatives. If a child is lower and just not getting it, I have stayed after school or had them come before school to tutor them. I have provided them with a peer tutor during the school day. Many times I will attempt to teach the subject a different way so that those children who couldn't quite grasp it might be able to catch on, while the others would be reviewing. I have sent home an extension of the work we did in class for their parents to work on with them at home. Sometimes I refer students to our IAT team, where they would begin interventions through Title One Reading as well as Title One Math. In the end, some of them need to be tested and put on an IEP in order for them to perform to their fullest potential without getting too frustrated with school. I have also had trouble in reading with some of my students so I requested for another certified assistant to pull them in small groups. This way, distractions wouldn't pose a threat as well as they would have much more one on one attention, which in some cases is definitely needed for the child to succeed. A teacher should never give up teaching to different types of children, be it slow learner or even a child with a disability. A teacher must be willing to learn and upgrade continuously in order to teach the children as well as learn and develop themselves. Every child is teachable.
