I have been teaching for 6 years in inner city schools. I LOVE what I do, I love my kids and I believe every kid can succeed. My standardized test data is among the top 10% of my district and all 6 years of my teaching I have had an average student growth over 1.5 years.
I teach with a love and logic model. Kids need to know they are loved and cared about if they are going to learn. Classroom wise I teach whole group for 30-45 minutes and then I spend the rest of my math time in stations.
