I have been teaching for 17 years, and have taught on a variety of different grade levels. I currently teach 4th grade and have taught 4th grade for six years now. This year, I am teaching math and science only, but have taught all of the other subject areas as well. My favorite subjects to teach in 4th grade are math, science, and social studies. Teaching is my passion because I love to see children light up when they get a concept! That look is exciting and rewarding for me as a teacher. I love the school atmosphere and love to see children learn!
My teaching style is hands-on learning. I feel that student learn better by being able to explore and discover as they go. In my teaching, I do try to appeal to the other learning styles as well, but still lean more to the kinesthetic/visual style.
