I do project-based learning mostly. I give instruction [generally walking students through the basics] and then give them time to complete projects.
MESA (Math Engineering Science Achievement) Educator of the Year Ukiah High School Distinguished Educator "Most Inspiring Teacher", 8th grade Social Studies
I attended Mendocino Community College, Sonoma State University, Dominican University of California, and a variety of other colleges for additional credits. I have 3 degrees and I am credentialed to teach in 17 subjects (within Social Sciences and Business/Technology) in California. I was also credentialed in Tennessee, but after moving back to California I let those laps.
I have four children of my own and one adopted daughter. My children have had various physical disabilities, emotional disabilities, and some learning disabilities. These have required some long term independent study, some special learning plans, and one child being home schooled. It's been quite a journey.
