I have 28 years teaching experience. I have taught 1st and 2nd grade in all disciplines, but mainly in ELA.
My teaching style's emphasis is student-center learning activities. This type of learning style places more responsibility on the students to take the initiative for achieving their goals and necessitates active learning, problem solving, and student collaboration. I also use music and singing as often as possible whenever introducing a new concept or as a fun activity!
