What college did you go to? I went to Indiana State University 1995-1999 and got my masters from Indiana Wesleyan in 2003.
What's the hardest part of teaching in the inner city? The lack of experience in the kids. Their horrible home lives (drugs, parents in jail, fights, no food, dirty, etc) Their families' perspective of teachers/schools/education. The vicious cycle of poverty. The parents' lack of support. The lack of money in the district. Being in a huge district is hard in itself. The public's opinion of teachers and more specifically inner city schools/teachers.
Do you have any pets? Would you like a dog? Used to have two cats (husband allergic so we got rid of them) and used to a have a Chihuahua named Daisy but when Taylor was born she was getting no attention and spending all day shut up while we worked so we gave her to our groomer.
