Classroom teacher of science (3 years high school & 8 years middle school) For the past 8 years (5 district wide, 3 school based) I have been a Science and Project Based Learning Coach (Grades 3 - 12); coaching teachers to build their own capacity to help students achieve in science and interdisciplinary connections.
My teaching style varies, depending on the students and the specific topic being taught. However, I prefer to use issues-based and inquiry methods, such as project based learning. I am not a pure constructivist, but I subscribe to the philosphy that students need to make their own meaning of their learning through experience.
