I am honest, faithful, caring, humorous, patient and reliable.
I have no problem sharing my shortcomings with others nor answering questions you may have about me.
A good relationship starts with the truth and knowing the real person.
It seems to work well and students who barely say a word most of the time have surprised me, talking almost non-stop. I think that, for a lot of them, it’s as close to a date as they’ve ever been on.
As soon as you walk into a classroom here you start to notice a few things. Part of my start-of-the-semester spiel is about how I expect them to be adults, to talk to me if there’s a problem, to be responsible for their work, to borrow a pen if they’ve forgotten one instead of just sitting there.
I’ve had problems in the past with some activities. If they need to ask 10 people a set of questions and there are only 7 or 8 boys, getting some of them to walk up and speak to a girl can be painful.
