The first time I started teaching the class, I was nervous, I was scared of what the students would think about me or my teaching style. As the days of me teaching went on I started to feel more comfortable about my teaching style. As the days went on the kids started getting better so I started giving them a more difficult question and surprisingly the kids loved the challenge.
I learned that you can learn anything if you put your mind into it. I learned that always doing easy questions is not going to improve your ability to do math.
