Currently completing student teaching during my final semester as a secondary education (English + ESOL) major at the University of Miami.
Big supporter of hands-on, group-based cooperative learning. I try to limit lecture-style teaching as much as possible, though sometimes the content necessitates some teacher-led instruction. Ultimately, my goal is to be a facilitator of learning, and to teach students how to think, not what to think.
