Public elementary traditional classroom upper elementary grades. Computer specialist for 3 years. Specialized in Math and Science. Taught 4th grade for over 25 years but ended my career with 4 years in 5th grade.
Over my 33-year career I used many different styles but lean toward more student choice and accountability as opposed to teacher-directed. In Mathematics I am a strong proponent of Standards-based math where learners are encouraged to understand deeply and make connections rather than memorizing a prefabricated procedure.
