Math Ambassadors is my signature resource in my quest to have students become independent learners and to have kids excited, enthused, and engaged in the classroom. Students teaching students in a "Think Out Loud" presentation is one of the most valuable tools I use. I have taught K-6 in public schools and have supervised homeschoolers through high school level. I love kids of all ages and have worked with teachers at all grade levels. Visit Class Around The Corner's profile on Pinterest.
I enjoy being a facilitator of learning, interacting through whole-class discussion, small group and paired learning. I like the idea of Gradual Release of Responsibility--helping kids move from direct instruction to discussion and clarity of thinking, and then to independent learning.
