MY TEACHING STYLE

I love using the Multiple Intelligence Theory and leveling to differentiate instruction. They allow me to reach every student on their own ability level and increase interest in social studies. I use cooperative learning and the common core standards as much as possible.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I presented at a Hall County GA professional development day on the topic of differentiated instruction activities and leveling in the middle school social studies classroom.
