      Audra's Answer for an Elementary Teacher Interview

      "I'm really proud of my students improving their math scores from a 76% class average to an 85%. I supported students in this by integrating math more deeply into the entire curriculum. As a class, we read books where there was room to supplement math into the conversation. For example, I used 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' as a fun way to teach math skills required in business. My students felt a real-world connection to their learning, but it was also fun for them to interact with the story as we read it. It felt good both personally and professionally that I could make this connection for them. It was a boost to my confidence and taught me to look for more opportunities to use this strategy."

      "I am most proud of making my own decision to come to the US to study. I believe that the choice I made when I was 12 has changed my life significantly and made me who I am now, and I am proud of that."

      Rachelle's Answer

      You should be very proud of yourself - this would have been an incredible challenge for anyone, let alone being only 12 years old. To further bring your adventure to life, I recommend talking to the interviewer about your journey and what you did to ensure that this change was a success.
