Describe a memorable teaching experience:
I most memorable teaching experience that I have had is when I ways helping out in a middle school. In one of the classes there was a lot of ELL learners in the class. One of the students was not yet talking to anyone in full English. I got him to start talking in the class and I helped him start to show everyone how smart he is. I felt like a real teacher at the point of time without being a real one yet.
