Are you a textbook guru? Do you try to adapt all of your lessons into hands-on experiences? Do you coordinate field trips to help bring the classroom to life? Are you more of a quiet leader or do you boast confidence and energy? Do you use a lot of technology in your classroom? (If so â€“ hereâ€™s a course on how to utilize the iPad to its fullest extent in class.) Be honest with your employer and back it up with examples or proof. If youâ€™re kids or parents have ever written you a letter thanking you for your hard work â€“ show them. This will tell them that even though you may have a non-traditional teaching style, or a totally traditional teaching style â€“ it works for you.
