I have been teaching for eight years. I have spent those years in both third and fourth grades. I am currently teaching fourth grade.
My teaching style centers around making learning fun and engaging for kids. I believe that kids learn very little by sitting passively, and what little they do learn is soon forgotten. If I stop and ask myself, "How can I make this fun and memorable?" I have found I can make even the most "boring" topic a great experience for my students. If my students actually want to come to school day after day, that is my measure of success.
