Currently teach the following in a parochial school: Computer Science: Grades PK-8; Religion: Grade 7; School & Community Mediation
I place great importance in maintaining a low stress environment for kids. This includes assuring them that they have the time they need each class, patiently repeating instructions for them if needed, and encouraging them to ask questions. I also encourage students to help each other. I like to be organized and find that poor lesson planning is usually a recipe for disaster--not just for students, but for me as well. I always feel happier, more confident, and satisfied with my job when I teach well. Good lesson planning provides this, and students reap the rewards :)
