Interviewing Teachers

The final design challenge for 1-8 was to re-design the teaching experience for their class mentors. They interviewed their class mentors to understand how they feel. They were given some questions to begin with. For example, "What was the best moment you had with our class?" and "What inspired you to become a teacher?" Students had a glimpse of the background of the teachers and how they felt about the class.
