I'm currently a 3rd grade teacher, education blogger, and presenter. I am formerly an elementary reading teacher, high school religion teacher, Montessori teacher's assistant, etc.
My pedagogy always seeks to utilize the constructivist method. I want students to employ a growth-mindset, and be aware of their thinking as it happens (i.e. metacognition).
