As a reading remediation teacher in a challenging school in Nashville, I get to help students who would otherwise be passed through the system or drop out of school. My responsibility to my students extends far beyond teaching standards—my students need to learn good study habits, the mental processes of a good reader, and how to self-advocate. This requires a style of communication that constantly adapts to the needs of different students. For me, one of the most exciting challenges of teaching is taking rigorous content and communicating it through current technology with which students are already familiar. As a teacher, I am always trying to adapt and innovative in order to improve my teaching and give each student what they need to succeed.
