MY TEACHING STYLE

I love being creative and making memorable learning experiences for my students. My philosophy is that you haven't learned what you can't remember, so I do my best to create lessons that will stay with my students as long as possible. I try to get my students up and moving as much as possible, and am always looking for new ways to interest them.
