      Answer Example

      "My teaching style follows the 'Warm/Strict' methodology in that I maintain a consistent balance of kind, empathetic approachability with firm and predictable boundaries. I believe that young learners thrive best in an environment that meets them where they're at while stillguaranteeing reliable structure and routine."

      "I like to take on a facilitator role as a teacher. I carefully chose tasks that I believe will engage students and lead to meaningful discussion while also meeting our content goals which allow them to discover their own learning. As a facilitator, I ask carefully chosen questions to assess their understanding and also to help advance them to their goal or toward a deeper understanding of the concepts. Finally, I build student confidence by giving students an opportunity to display their mathematical competence to their peers in a safe environment."
