Hello everyone,

I am working on an assignment for an education course. If any K-6 teachers would like to respond to these questions, it will be helpful and appreciated.

What are the average class sizes in the school? What is the teacher-student ratio?

What does professional development look like in your school/district?
What type of learning technique(s) help the students the most?
What factors cause a barrier to learning?
What instructional strategies do you use?
What instructional strategies do not work for you?
What continuing education classes have you completed in the past school year?
What new skills have you gained in the last 5 years?
How do you stay current on developments in education?

Thank you for your time.
