About Me

My name is Taliah Banks I attended schlagle High school and graduated from UMKC


I believe that being understanding, helpful, respectful and patient makes a good teacher. You have to have patients to be a teacher, even though teaching can be stressful sometimes. I also believe that you want your classroom to feel welcoming and be a good learning environment for you students. You want them to learn and get there education but you don’t want to be boring .Try to make what your teaching fun so they would want to learn it .

My class is going to be welcoming and colorful. I would want my students to be respectful to each other and me . I want my students to be excited to learn something new. For them to learn and understand the subject/the thing being taught. So the can me successful in class and anywhere else life takes them.
