I have taught in public schools for over 13 years as a substitute teacher, but have also done both long-term sub jobs and contract jobs, as well.
By my background being in computer science, I have strong math skills. Out of all of the subjects that I teach, kids always draw pictures of me teaching them math. I am often told by students that math problems that were once perceived as being hard to them, are now easy to them. I try to make subjects simple for students, ensuring that they get a good foundation.
I have been called in to take over classes where test scores have been low, and was able to bring the test scores up dramatically. I once was called in to takeover a class at the end of a school year where 55% of the students were below basic. When the students took their final tests for that year, 65% of them scored advanced and proficient.
