A teacher for 16 years within one school district in Michigan. As a teacher, I have been on many committees, been part of Leadership teams such as Galileo, and served on the school's Leadership team to support Kovalik's HET program. Currently I am the head coach for Science Olympiad and am the lead teacher for our school's Garden Club. I have been involved in Student Council, the Talent Show, and many other activities within the district.
Whole-brain teaching with an emphasis on the HET model by Susan Kovalik. Project-based learning is essential with engagement strategies, adequate time, immediate feedback, movement, and a focus on the Multiple Intelligences. Classroom Strategies That Work by Marzano have also been implemented into the classroom. It is a student-centered environment with some technology incorporation.
