COLLEGE STUDENT SEEKING PROJECT HELP FROM MIDDLE/HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS
Hi all! My name is Christina and I'm a senior at Illinois State University. For my adolescent psychology class, I'm required to interview middle/high school teachers regarding their experiences working with/teaching adolescents. It would be GREAT if I could get input from some of you. If you are interested in helping me out, please answer as many of the following questions as you would like, and also provide which school or school district you work for. Thank you SO much in advance for your time and help!
