What are your expectations for yourself as a student? As a future teacher?

As a student myself I hope to learn valuable information on the needs; of the special needs children. As a teacher I hope to understand their illnesses, and struggles with learning to better support their education.

Will the kind of student you are now reflect on the type of teacher you might become? Why or why not?

I think I'm a very involved student, therefore I believe I will be a very hands on teacher. I love working with children and watching them succeed.

What issues will you face in your journey to become a teacher? How can this class help you overcome these issues?

I know there will be struggles with becoming a teacher, but I'm confident that I can find resolutions. This class has already given me a new look towards teaching, I don't want to be the boring teacher. I want to be the teacher everyone wants as their teacher. With that in mind this class has given me resources to keep my classroom upbeat and a fun learning environment.
