I have over 10 years of experience in the Florida classroom, mostly with middle school Language Arts and high school French. Half of my career was spent at charter schools, so I know the unique challenges those teachers may face. Now, I teach at a public MYP/IB school, and many of my lessons are designed with an MYP/IB/advanced curriculum in mind. My husband is a History and Psychology teacher (at the same school!) and my store now includes many of his useful creations as well. Check out his neat projects and his PowerPoints- they are works of art!
I like making kids think! I create my own lessons because I believe they are better than what is supplied to me by the school or the textbook company. I try to offer kids engaging lessons that ask them to use higher order thinking skills while interacting with their classmates or the world around them.
