My teaching style is a blend of progressive and traditional. I love engaging the students by being animated as I introduce a lesson. I challenge every student but embrace differentiated learning. I begin with the basics and constantly interface with other educators to incorporate new methods. I believe that staff development involvement is an integral component to keeping current. LISTENING to the students has been a huge part of MY education. They amaze me with wonderful, innovative and productive ideas!
