I like to use alot of hands-on, cooperative learning in my classroom. I also include lots of higher-order thinking in our class discussions and Kagan structures. I love incorporating technology into my lessons and use my Promethean board everyday. I also like a laid-back atmosphere and try to use humor whenever possible.
