Elementary School Teacher
Cristina Velazquez P. 10
I would like to be an Elementary School Teacher in Burbank, Illinois. As a teacher, I'd focus on creating a safe environment for the kids as well as making it a memorable learning experience for them. Discipline in the class is very important. I'd create a different lesson plan each week that expands kids learning as well as entertains them with hands-on activities, projects, songs and games. Homework will be given out to ensure that students remember what they've learned in school and graded by me the next day. I would like to work from about 7:30 am to 2:30 pm.
