My instruction focuses on the learning process in which I pose questions that invite higher-level thinking, problem solving, and self-assessment. I foster an environment in which students are actively involved in their learning and encouraged to collaborate with peers. My student-centered approach involves student choice and students' interests/multiple intelligences.
