Impact of ITT

The DTLLS has helped me improve my teaching in many ways. The feedback that I received from my teaching observations allowed me to gain confidence when dealing with classroom management. It also helped me gain ideas on how to stretch and challenge learners and help them reach their full potential. I have also established a good idea on how to use different teaching techniques in order to engage learners.
