Non-American. Costa Higher Level, Bloom's Taxonomy, behaviorist, meta-cognition, bilingual, no spoon-feeding. I love teaching theory along with application. I hold students accountable for their learning. I had my Algebra 2 students working on functions and had them doing Newton difference quotient derivatives by the end of the day. I read math and science education research and am fascinated with the TIMMS. I look to our foreign counterparts for my pedagogy. I don't give homework. My students are successful and can overtake honors students in their depth and knowledge.
