As a math specialist, my job is to identify the students in the school who are struggling significantly with math. I then determine where their areas of weakness are and work with them in small groups to build their math skills and get them caught up to grade level. The job is very technical in the sense that I do a lot of data collection and analysis, but it is also very personal in the sense that I get to connect with students one-on-one, figure out how they learn and see them progress. I absolutely love both aspects of the job and can’t imagine a better fit for me. I work with grades 1-7, and experiencing all of the different ages and curriculums has been a wonderful opportunity as a first time teacher.
