I have been teaching 6th grade for thirteen years. During that time, I've also served as the department chair for the eight other teachers in my department. In addition, I was the student activities advisor and leadership teacher for ten years.
From my students: "Strict, but fair. Comes up with fun ideas." Me: I try to balance the textbook curriculum with supplemental lessons. If it's boring for me to teach, then it will be boring for them to learn!
