4. One of the things that just bugs me is that I know I was effective.
The kids responded when I repeatedly offered to explain a concept until each student could understand it, especially in math. And I encouraged them to ask questions, challenge me. I had to settle for substitution teaching as I'm "overqualified" (masters degree) to be hired permanently.
