I am a special education certified teacher who has a love of knowledge. I also have a dual certification in social studies but love to learn about any subject. If you engage a child and get them excited they can learn anything.
When a child does not get the concept that is being taught in class it can be embarrassing to them especially when everyone else seems to know exactly what is being taught. If a child does not pick up on the fundamental and basic ideas behind a concept then they will be lost as each lesson builds on the lesson before. Also, sometimes teachers feel the pressure of the state testing and what concepts have to be taught and they feel like they can not stop and help the three students that do not get the concept.
I have a passion for teaching, and seeing a child understand a concept for the first time is very exciting for me. I feel every child should be given the opportunity to achieve success.
