I have taught all my life. I have taught in Germany for 3 years before coming to the USA. I taught for 5 years in the university level, 2 years in middle school, and 17 years in Elementary.
I teach mainly in cooperative groups or in peer centered teaching. My students also learn in stations and small group settings. Independent practice and stations work wonders for my students.
