Certified teacher since 1997. Taught in elementary, middle school and high school.
High expectations, lots of support and practice in a variety of ways to meet different learners' needs & styles. Fun, with real life/authentic connections where possible! Always changing, always evolving, always learning... and proud of it.
I'm thinking I'm going to have to invent my own award for this one... I think "teaching awards" are much more rare in Ontario, Canada than they seem to be in many US states. :-)
