are your biggest challenges in teaching?
Besides money and
not getting the resources that I think children deserve, it's a challenge
to try to do everything. We have to teach all kinds of skills, all kinds
of subjects. We have to teach across the curriculum, and we have to
constantly be exciting. It's also a challenge being a teacher because
we have a lot of people demanding different things of our time. We need
to creatively figure out how to fit everything into the time we have.
There are so many challenges that it's hard to know where to start and
what to say first.
your biggest challenge in teaching science?
My biggest challenge
in teaching science is that I like to teach things that I'm passionate
about, but to which I don't necessarily know the answers. So I am constantly
looking for resources, finding posters, finding people who are experts
in different areas. And I think it's a challenge to find those people
and get them interested in helping out.
