School Teacher

Summary:

I am a very creative individual who works well under pressure. I am most creative and innovative when given the challenge of teaching low performing boys to re mediate. I see every teaching opportunity as a challenge to outdo my expectation and to get the students to grasp whatever concept being taught. I am also good at planning school events such as competitions and field trips.
