Small School Solutions
West Friendship, the smallest school in Howard County, helped me see the challenges and opportunities that a small school can bring. From color coded folders for each grade that I teach to calling all students, "my friend," Amy's techniques have impressed itself upon my teaching style.
While at West Friendship, I observed, collaborated, planned and taught classes, gradually gaining the confidence and techniques I now use as a teacher. Her critiques and advice laid the groundwork for the quality teacher that I am today.
