My school was a very traditional school. I never had more than 20 students in my classes, sometimes not more than 12. This made learning a lot easier because I could focus better. I was able to connect with my teachers on more of a personal level. I believe this to be one social issue in itself. Students have such hard times connecting with their teachers, and that is often one of the reasons why some don't succeed. They need that support system. I am very thankful for this learning experience.
Another aspect was that I got more one-on-one time with my teachers, which really maximized my learning. I would say that my relationships with my teachers were very positive. I received an overwhelming amount of support from my teachers and administration. I always felt like I had someone to go to when I was having trouble. This just goes to show the culture of my school. I always felt that the community had my back as well, because everyone wanted the children to succeed.
