I have been an elementary teacher for 13 years. 3 years were in an ESL/Bilingual classroom, 11 years in 3rd grade, and 2 years in 4th grade.
I prefer a student-centered classroom where the standards are taught through a lot of student choice using task cards, cooperative learning groups, technology, stations, and PBL projects. I am a technology innovator and Google Educator trained.
