They use games, music, artwork, films, books, computers and other tools to teach basic skills. Teachers design classroom presentations to meet students' need and abilities. They also work with students individually. They are responsible for planning, evaluation and assigning lesson plans; preparing, administering and grading tests and maintaining discipline.
