I have been teaching for 12 years. I've taught 3rd Grade All Content Areas, 5th and 6th Grade Math and Science. I enjoy teaching students, and I especially feel a sense of fulfillment when I see in the eyes of my students "I understand it now" helps me keep going! I believe that I am making a difference!!!
My belief is that in order for students to learn mathematics, science or any content area students learn best when they manipulate the concepts by using hands-on activities using manipulatives or science equipment that require moving around and exploring a concept, it is helpful that children create concepts or ideas visually so they need to make models or draw pictures of concepts being learned, and students need to understand the concept being learned by listening to the teacher or their peers so students should explain their thinking by writing or speaking. The activities that i conduct in my class should teach students a concept or reinforce a multiple of concepts already learned. I incorporate technology when possible.
