Practical, hands-on learning I love to have students engage in activities that are practical, hands-on, and challenging at an appropriate level. Through the use of differentiated techniques, I aim to meet the needs of all students in my classroom. Also, I prefer using teaching material that's easy on a teacher's budget and time!

I love creating practical teaching resources that fit easily into tight teaching budgets and provide real-world connections for students. My highly varied teaching experience (pubic/private, U.S./international, K-12/university level) will give you a great wealth of resources.
