I have taught Texas History, American History, Reading, and Language Arts.
I feel that history is more interesting when it is taught as a story. I introduce the kids to the new information, then we go back and learn about it. We use flashcards, take notes, and do NOT do worksheets!

After being in the school as a volunteer for my two boys, I realized that I should be a teacher as many seem to be in it for the wrong reasons. I love trying new things and reflecting on things that do not work. We should all share so that nobody has to reinvent the wheel!
