My typical day consisted of developing materials for the classroom, collecting data to drive instruction, partnering with parents and administration to create a strong network of support for students. I learned how to prioritize and be flexible, because in a school day anything can happen. I also learned how to allow data to drive instruction and make decisions based on concrete evidence. Additionally, I learned that the education system is suffering and really needs highly motivated issues in the classroom to tackle to day-to-day battles that as associated with teaching. The hardest part of my job was dealing with the impossible: trying to reach a student who, to others, seemed unreachable. It was also very rewarding to work creatively and collaboratively with other teachers to reach low-motivated students. Once we started seeing improvements in their behavior and attitude, we began to see improvements in the classroom. That was by far the hardest but also most rewarding part of my job.
