As a high school teacher, I have encountered many students who have struggled with the material I was teaching, and I have always been ready to adapt my teaching style to meet their needs. One specific example that comes to mind is when I had a student in my biology class who had a learning disability that made it difficult for them to comprehend and process complex concepts.

To help this student, I first had a conversation with them to understand their specific learning needs and style. I discovered that this student learned best through hands-on activities and visual aids. Based on this, I adapted my teaching style to include more interactive activities, such as group projects and experiments, and incorporated visual aids such as diagrams and videos. I also provided extra one-on-one assistance during class and outside of class time to ensure they fully understood the concepts.

By tailoring my teaching style to meet this student's needs, I was able to help them improve their understanding and ultimately perform better in the class. This experience highlights my ability to engage and challenge students while also being flexible and adaptable to meet their individual needs.

As demonstrated in my resume, I have a proven track record of engaging and challenging my students while also being adaptable to meet their needs. For example, I developed and executed daily lesson plans to engage and challenge student understanding and involvement, including 30+ international students (ESL) and students with specialized educational needs. Additionally, I increased the number of A+ to C grades from 60% to 90% over 2 years, which shows my ability to effectively teach a diverse group of students with varying levels of understanding.

Overall, my ability to adapt my teaching style to meet the needs of struggling students, combined with my experience engaging and challenging students, makes me an effective and skilled teacher who is committed to helping all students succeed.
