Hi there, I am looking to become an elementary school teacher, preferably for 4th or 5th grade. I would like to know what are the qualities to being a successful elementary school teacher? I was an elementary school Paraprofessional for 7 months before being transferred to middle school as a Paraprofessional. I was a mentor with the HOSTS Mentoring Program from 2007-2009. I recently took the Florida Teacher Certification Exam for Elementary Education K-6 and pass 3 out of 4 sections. I will retake the one I missed in early November. My Bachelor's degree is in Social Science with Education Concentration. I am a team player, I communicate and work well with staff, and I give 100% to my students daily. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!
