This is my tenth year teaching. I'm currently teaching Year 1 and leading the Pre-School, Reception, and Year 1 teachers at a British school in Al Khor, Qatar. I'm also the Media & Communication Coordinator for the school, which I have time for while my student teacher is teaching. I've taught Kindergarten, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade in the US as well as 7th and 8th math and science at a British school using the Cambridge Curriculum.
Research-based. If I can't answer 'why' on my plans, I don't do it. I believe very much in lowering students' affective filters and enabling them to develop independent critical thinking skills through constructivist learning.

My husband and I are living in Doha, Qatar, in the Middle East. We miss the seasons and are developing dust allergies, but love the safety and family-oriented nature of Qatar.
