Title: High School Special Education Teacher
Q: Can you tell me a little bit about your family?
I am from Philadelphia, PA. My family and I typically just like to have dinner. We also like to go shopping every now and then and tour around the city. We are pretty traditional.
Q: Do you have any hobbies?
I like gardening. I just started getting into planting, so I have a few plants that I take care of.
Q: What was your favorite subject in school?
I always liked creative writing and making different stories. I love to use my imagination and create things.
Q: What is your favorite thing about your job?
I like giving my high school students a chance that they typically didn’t receive at their regular school. They don’t normally get good praise. It is usually bad reports or phone calls. So, I love giving them the praise they deserve and seeing their reactions. Making them feel special and happy makes my day.
Q: What are you most excited about for the school year?
Continuing to make positive relationships with my students. Making them feel special and giving them their recognition. I want to give them a good report and have us trust each other.
Q: Can you tell me about an achievement that you have seen from your position?
I’ll never forget the reaction I got from the students when I started last fall. I started my job while the school year was already ongoing, so I was shocked to see how well they took to me. It was exciting for me because I thought it would take them a little while to get used to me being in the classroom. But they took to me right away.
Q: Do you have any future goals?
I want to finish school and get my certification. That is my main goal.
