I teach high school math, computer coding and computer science.
Interacting with young people, communicating how important education is and how it can truly affect future goals. Discussion on problem solving both in mathematics and computer science. Counseling students in everyday problems.
Patience, understanding, respect, consideration, good people skills.
Here's the first step for high school students
Find a subject that they are passionate in learning.
"'You're a woman! You can't do that!' 'You're hispanic! Mexicans don't succeed in that field!' 'You don't have the patience to be a teacher!' 'You only got into USC because they need to fill a quota for females and Mexicans!'"
