Teaching 17 years total going on 14 in my current district. BS in English Education, added Elementary Cert. Masters in C+I near completion. Minor in Psychology. I teach 8th grade Language Arts, and I am the Drama Advisor 7-12.
Motivation is the strength of my style. I use Differentiated Instruction whenever possible because it makes my job less boring, and students really enjoy having choices. Get even the most reluctant students excited about learning and having fun while doing it, and there'll be more learning and less discipline issues.
