Why do you want to teach specifically in a high-need school in Baltimore? What challenges do you expect, and what experiences have prepared you for the challenges of teaching in a high-need school in our community?

I would like to refer to a quote from the movie Coach Carter, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”


One of the reasons why I am so excited to become part of the Baltimore Teaching Residency Program is the possibility – the possibility for greatness.  The City of Baltimore has ample resources, individuals, and communities that are genuinely inspiring – and I hope that through the Baltmore Teaching Residency I am able to build relationships between the community and the students it serves.

What challenges do you expect, and what experiences have prepared you for the challenges of teaching in a high-need school in our community?

Teaching subject I love and helping disadvantaged kids are the main reasons I choose to teach. I am prepared to handle the toughest classes as my training has equipped me to teach in diverse classroom and provide more help to struggling students.


You are a first year teacher in a high-needs school, with two months left until the end of the academic year. You implement fun and engaging activities in class and offer tutoring 3-4 times a week; however, one third of your students failed the last grading period. Several of these students consistently break established classroom rules by listening to their iPods, not turning in work, or engaging in off-topic conversation. Many of your students worry that because of all the distractions in class, they will not be prepared to pass the end-of-year standardized exam, which is required to move to the next grade level.


You reach out to your principal for help. The principal states that other teachers with the same level of experience are more effective and you assure her that you already reached out to them, as well as more experienced teachers, for advice. She asks you what is going on in your class, and what you plan to do about it.

1. What are the likely causes of the challenges in your classroom?

2. Explain your top two priorities for addressing these challenges, including why you chose these priorities.

3. What is the likelihood you could ensure high academic achievement for all of your students, and why?
