7 years of experiential teaching, engaging students in grades 1-5 in hands-on, discovery-based learning, driven by the creation of real-world authentic products.
Project and performance-based learning is my passion! Check out my Facebook Page for photos and videos of my student-created final products! Well-versed in actively engaging students in the Singapore Math model which carefully guides students from the concrete, to the pictorial, to the abstract.
