1. An educational background.
2. Good lightening.
See that big light? It is wonderful! I found it at Lowe's. I also bought LED daylight light bulbs. It makes for a clear, white light. Good lightning is so important! The students have to be able to see you, see what you do, see your lips move, and see your props that support the lesson.
3. A good work space.
You need a quiet and clutter free space to call your classroom. We are short on space so I am stuck in our living room. In this photo, you can see I have things on the sides of my classroom. When I am teaching, you cannot see them. Off to the side, I have plastic drawers to store my item. They are within my reach so I can get to them if needed in a lesson.
