24 years in education! I have taught everything from K through University levels along with a little time teaching at a correctional facility. It's hard to stay out of the classroom.
I believe I have a kid (or student) centered approach. Start with your standard or objective, find out where the student is in relation to meeting the standard, identify their strengths and optimum mode of learning; then go for it! I am learning that listening is the key.

I don't do cute for the sake of cute. But I do put a great deal of thought and care into what I create. Always with 'How is this beneficial to kids?" in mind.
