I have been teaching at Edison International Academy for 1 year. I could not ask for a better to school to teach. I have enjoyed teaching the students as well as learning from them. I believe every day is a new opportunity to learn and my main goal is to prepare my students to be successful in the rest of their school years and to be life-long learners. Every day, I ask myself a series of questions: ‘Are the students excited about learning? Do they feel like a valued participant in the lesson? Are a variety of strategies and evaluations being used in the instruction?’ I then adapt my style to the changing dynamics of the classroom.
