MY TEACHING STYLE

As a special education teacher and educator of diverse student populations, my teaching style and philosophy reflects my experiences in that role. I believe that each student is unique and have a wide range of learning styles and needs. When constructing a lesson I try to make use of a wide range of instructional strategies to provide increased opportunities for student success. I believe that teachers do not simply pass knowledge to their students but rather encourage and support students as they make meaning from rich and engaging classroom experiences. I love learning and I hope that the learning experiences I create foster that in students.
