I have taught elementary and middle school. I have taught gifted science in middle school, science and social studies in elementary school. I am currently teaching EIP Social Studies with an emphasis on Reading skills.
"If they can touch it, they can learn it!" I totally believe in a hands-on approach to teaching. Students must get involved and the learning must be relevant. Using current events and a variety of resources keep any subject from getting dry and boring! Never start class the same way two days in a row. Keep them guessing. Keep them excited about coming to your class.
