Class participation and providing multiple ways of learning a concept are key to success. Not all students learn the same way or at the same pace, so finding new and exciting ways to present material and foster an environment of shared learning is extremely important. I want students to see, hear, feel, touch, and taste the curriculum. Movement and muscle memory aid in retention and provide an outlet for students to end the hours of mindless blank stares sitting slouched in a chair or desk. Learning should be fun and engaging. 20 years after they graduate, students should be able to reflect on specific (positive) experiences they had in their classrooms. This time with them is as precious as it is important. I keep this in mind every day I touch a student's life.
