My name is Ra’Monika Carter, an educator who will soon be specializing in Special Education with a background in Mental Health Specialist.

They are responsible for lesson planning daily, attend general meetings, contact parents also daily, monitored daily, grade work and test, monitor emails frequently, volunteer, prep for daily class activities and activities for the following day, have daily duties and the list goes so far on. Teachers do a lot and they are also blamed for so much as far as making sure that every student in the classroom are on top of he/she assignments, but if more than 40% of a student fail an assignment, it looks bad on that teacher for lack of instruction.
