description of :
Knowledge of Pedagogy, hard working and always answer students questions timely. Always grade papers and test efficiently and quickly. Encourage students to ask questions and nit to be afraid. I respect my students and understand they may have a lot of responsibilities however, I except work to be done in a timely manner. If a student has a problem or disability I quickly try to resolve the issue or work with families and other support staff for the best results.
