I am a strong believer in challenging the needs of every learner. All of my lesson plans meet the needs of a variety of learning styles; Howard Garner's "Multiple Intelligences Theory" is a huge part of my lesson planning. I love anything HANDS-ON!!! I hold stern in the belief that you can only effectively learn by doing!!! I always like to incorporate technology into my teaching as well. After all, it is the way of the future ;) Overall, I am extremely passionate about teaching, and most importantly, the students.
