The teachers I was fortunate to work with were all very different from each other, of the four I worked with at were different grade levels and had different years of experience. They were all math teaching in middle school, the first I met with was Ms. Hall a seventh grade teacher in her second year of teaching, the second was Ms. Ambriz a sixth grade teacher with twelve years of experience on that same day I also visit Ms. Martinez eighth grade with more years than Ms. Ambriz and finally Mr. Bravo who was also a sixth grade teacher on his first year of teaching.

While interviewing, the most common challenge about being a teacher for all the teacher was dealing with bad kids, most students are well behaved, but the few kids that are disruptive in class that prevent others from learning becomes very aggravating.

The room was very student oriented, everything
