I have been teaching since 2010 in Title One schools. I have a Math 2 endorsement, a Reading endorsement, and an ESL endorsement. I have also achieved a Masters in Curriculum development and an Administration licence.
I believe that before teaching can take place the student must be engaged in the lesson. Much of this can be done through building relationships and relevance. One of my favorite ways to engage the students is through games and activities. This not only picks up the pace of the classroom instruction but keeps everyone on task. Every year I survey my class to find their favorite subject and the majority will say Art and will place Math as their least favorite. By the end of the year the majority of my class will have changed their response to Math or Science due to the activities and engagement pieces.
