I am a constructionist to my very core. I am not traditional in anything I do and believe in getting as many modalities into every lesson that I can. My teaching style matches my personality, which is always questioning and looking for ways to hack the system (find other ways of doing things) that work better or are more efficient than what has traditionally been. I know that kids can do amazing things and accomplish far more than our current society expects of them, so I expect far more than average.
